Hello and thank you for calling in...

My name is Helen and I am a Photographer living in England. I started this Blog on the day that my Grandma died, three months after my Father died and several weeks before a third funeral. Initially it was a very personal way to stay connected to the people I'd lost and it helped, it really did. But writing and taking pictures everyday has opened back up a creative side that I had lost during the everyday. A big thank you to my followers, to those who take the time to comment and to new visitors, I hope we will become Blog friends too...

Glorious Orange

'Autumn Soup' by Helen Watson-Jones

At Bumbles & Light this week the Shades of Autumn photo challenge colour of the week is Orange

And there was oodles of glorious Autumn orange on my road trip to the North Coast of Scotland this week. Autumn colours are rather non existent in my area but during our 1000 miles in 2 days the colours were stunningly breathtakingly beautiful.

I will be writing a few posts with photographs from Scotland as I am positively gushing about the scenery, rainbows and cheeky little pheasants who loved to have their photograph taken!


  1. I love love love the Autumn Soup picture, it's got a fairy tale feeling to it :)

  2. Hasn't it!! I was so lucky to have a walled garden at Leith Hall in the North of Scotland all to myself. It was absolutely a fairytale garden and can you imagine me dancing round and round the 'soup bowl' trying to capture the best shot! magical!

  3. Love that first one, sounds like the sort of "recipe" my son would come up with while playing outside.

    It's nice to see good weather in Scotland, my brother lives over there (in Dundee) and I remember him saying recently that it had been very cold!

    Thanks for taking part in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge!

  4. Satakieli it was so so cold! and i've never in my life seen lamposts bending in the wind like we did on the North Coast! But it was stunning!

    I'm loving the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge, my friends and I are off on a shoot today and I will be looking for all the colours for photographs for the coming weeks!

    I have started my own Photography Share 'Me Reflected' could i bother you to add a photo to it please? I would be so thrilled to have one of yours on my site! :o)
