Shot on a trip to Saxony in April, while cycling part of the Elbe Cycle Route with bikes hired from the excellent Augustus Tours.

Pictured, the old town of Meissen, home to the historic Meissen Porcelain Factory – the first place in Europe to discover the secret of making porcelain (as opposed to importing it from China), back in 1708.

Shot on a trip to Saxony last month, while visiting the national park as a day trip from Dresden – a short ride on the S-Bahn to Kurort Rathen, a ferry over the River Elbe (which we would spend the next couple of days cycling along), and a short hike up to the rather amazing-looking Bastei Bridge.

100,000 people from all over Britain marching through the capital, and the BBC pretty much failed to cover it.

The Viareggio Carnival in Tuscany, Italy, is famous for its vast and spectacularly elaborate floats. There are five parades, spread over the month around Lent. This was shot during the fourth parade, on 28 February 2017 – when the parade itself had to be cancelled due to high winds (which threatened to blow some of the floats over)… although that didn’t stop the carnival going ahead in full swing at La Citadella, the place on the edge of town where the floats are kept in huge storage hangers (you can see one of them in the background; yes, that’s Trump, more on that one in a later post). A bit like being hit by a whole carnival parade simultaneously. I love photographing carnivals, and shooting this one in particular was sooo much fun.
