The Jubilee River is in fact not a real river it was constructed as a means of diverting flood waters away from the Thames in the 90’s and was only completed fairly recently. Its now a great place for walking and wildlife, I spotted a Great Crested Grebe, Heron and a number of geese whilst I was taking these photos today.

Tucked away in the heart of the Hampshire countryside is Lasham Airfield, one of the top locations in the UK for gliding. Right next to it is a fascinating collection of old aircraft at the SWAPPS museum.
I have photographed these boys before about 3 or 4 years ago at the Forum in London, so was great to see them again and to hear some of their new material.
Preston up on stage with the band. I have to confess I am not too familiar with their music (the whole Chantelle affair has somewhat eclipsed it perhaps). They are very much like the Smiths with a bit of a ska sound. I quite like them, they are not bad at all and have a good stage presence.
I got to Guilfest just in the nick of time to photograph the first of the headline acts, Rodrigo y Gabriela who come from Mexico but are now based in Dublin. They are very new on the scene andwere absolutely stunning, the raw energy they were producing was astounding. I have never heard such a great accoustic sound. I think I shall go and buy their album.
