Lynne Newton - Foxybiddy - Photography
2 Buttercup Lane, Street, Somerset, BA16 0PJ, Tel: 01458 446373
Lynne has a passion for photography, which can be seen in all of the images she has kindly provided for our website. Despite busy family life she will get up at 4-5am and go to some of her favourite photo spots in the hope of capturing the spirit of Glastonbury Tor and the enchantment of the Somerset Levels. Living in Street she is ideally placed to explore new angles on the themes she loves the most - the Tor and nature.
Lynne is fascinated about the flocks of starlings that migrate here during the winter months. This is an exciting time as she never knows what her camera has captured until she analyses the pictures at home. In October 2007, "A Murmuration of Starlings" photograph had won her first prize in category in the Currys/Telegraph Our Lives photo competition and this award gave her national news coverage which no doubt has helped increase the number of visitors wanting to watch this spectacle.
During the starling season she runs a log on her website letting people know where they can spot them. Her images can be bought online from her website shown below.
