Hebrides Book now finished (finally)

I found it difficult to resist Blurb's recent "35% discount" special offer, so decided it was time to pull my finger out and turn last year's Hebrides trip into a book.  You'll be pleased to know that it will be in all good bookshops in plenty of time for the Christmas rush...

An Afternoon of Archery

There hasn't been much time for photography recently (unless you count a couple of weeks in Iceland, of course, of which much more later); but, on Wednesday, we had a outing from work to the Cambridge Shooting School in Whittlesford for an afternoon of archery.  We were all complete novices, of course, but John D'Urso - our coach - made an excellent job of explaining some of the techniques involved.

We were then allowed loose on the bows: first, without arrows...

...and then for real!

Here are some of my work colleagues learning a new skill (with varying amounts of success, it has to be said).

Finally, a couple of "before/after" shots.

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was had by all.
