Well it is that time of year when we pack our bags and head off to somewhere where the sun does actually shine for longer than it takes to apply suncream! On this occasion we have been heading out to Valencia in Spain and our glorious airline SleazyJet allowed us to check in 8 weeks in advance, on the flip side they wont let you through the 315 levels of security more than two and half hours before departure which kind of defeats the object. To alleviate numerous hours of mind numbing boredom we headed to the Sofitel at the North Terminal for a decent spot of nosh and some peace and quiet, at this point it was time to unleash the fish eye lens and try to capture this great atrium whilst it was quiet. :-)
There is light at the end of the tunnel!!! Doh, my mistake, there is Flight EZY8645 awaiting our boarding once we have punched our way through all the cheapskates who were too tight to pay for 'Speedy Boarding' yet still feel it is their right to be on the plane before the pilot & cabin crew!
After a day of travelling we were delighted to arrive at our villa, this will be our home for the next 2 weeks, well I have stayed in worse places! The pool is a welcome refresher as the temperature is roughly 2 degrees warmer than Satans armpit :-)
Since arriving Kerys has spent roughly 15 seconds NOT being in the pool so it was time to practice the daytime flash shots. It did take me plenty of attempts to get this shot, and once I had got it I managed to trash the editing programme trying to get it looking right!!! After several hours of swearing at the laptop my fabulous other half convinced me that she should try and fix it (having never used the editing suite in her life). Needless to say she fixed it in a heartbeat and I enjoyed a lovely slice of humble pie for lunch :-/
More shot to follow as the holiday progresses, adios amigos.
