Thomas Hardy (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist & poet.
A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels & in his poetry by Romanticism, especially William Wordsworth.
He was highly critical of much in Victorian society, especially on the declining status of rural people in Britain, such as those from his native South West England.
While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, therefore, he gained fame as the author of novels such as Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), & Jude the Obscure (1895). During his lifetime, Hardy's poetry was acclaimed by younger poets (particularly the Georgians) who viewed him as a mentor. After his death his poems were lauded by Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden & Philip Larkin.
Many of his novels concern tragic characters struggling against their passions & social circumstances, & they are often set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex; initially based on the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom, Hardy's Wessex eventually came to include the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Hampshire & much of Berkshire, in southwest & south central England. Two of his novels, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Far from the Madding Crowd, were listed in the top 50 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.

My 46th and final portrait in this series, taken yesterday on my 36th birthday.
Now that lockdown has been eased further and life is starting to get back towards the new normal, I’ve decided now is a good time to finish the project (Unless of course we hit a second peak of the virus and restrictions are increased once more). I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has been kind enough to let me take their portrait. It’s been wonderful meeting so many of the towns people and seeing some of the amazing things that are happening within the community to keep us all going.
I plan on collating the series within a book and would like to donate all profits to the Lyme Regis Food Bank.
I have also made a short film of this time to go alongside this series of portraits, I will share it with you all in the coming days... I’ve been over whelmed with the positive comments about what I’ve been doing, I really appreciate the support you have all shown me, thank you.
A long Sunday ride with the lads, @adrenalinehead88@itzchris92 and Neil. Absolutely knackered but what a trip! A Ride out to Dartmoor National Park and Home via the coast. 🏖
We had a break down and lost @adrenalinehead88 who made his way home, after his stator decided to pop and smoke, an hour into the journey. 😭
Well hello Margot .... this little pup came to the rescue during lockdown ...... she’s half pug x Yorkshire terrier .... one of our volunteers decided that this little girl needed a home so she’s living her best life now with a pack of 6 Dogs .. ❤️ Covid has unfortunately had an impact on people’s ability to keep doggos .... this little girl cost her original owners a huge amount of money as she was a fancy cross #adoptdontshop#rescuedog#rescuedogsofinstagram#pugsofinstagram#rescuedog#poole#dorset

Love Bournemouth? We are not sure anymore...? Some visitors have got a shocking way of showing it.
You all agree ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
We ALL MUST THINK about the consequences of our actions, too many people, too little respect, unacceptable behaviours.
As responsible followers of Love Bournemouth, we need you to get that message out
STAY LOCAL AND IF IT'S TOO BUSY, THINK TWICE AND STAY AT HOME.
RESPECT OUR TOWN AND YOURS.
HAVE SOME HUMANITY.
Thank you to everyone who has stayed at home and local for now. #StayHomeSaveLives #secondspike

Impressive architecture skills somewhere in England. 🤟🏻
Another photo from Colmer's Hill 2 or 3 weeks ago, which sparked me into getting out and about loads getting milky way photos with the clear weather we've been having.
We now have some much needed rain on the way (much needed for the gardens anyway), which has coincided with the full moon, which means milky way photography is difficult currently.
I'm hoping we do get some clear skies at the end of the week so I can photograph the full moon though!
The Milky Way core now isn't visible until mid July and the nights are too short to get very dark as we approach the longest day of the year.
I have a few more ideas once they're back though :) When I was editing this photo, I noticed a scary face in the bushes down to the bottom left 😂 see the post on my Facebook Page to see it or my Instagram Story

With poppy season being the thing right now, I’m feeling blessed to be able to scout two fields local and one that my mates parents house backs onto which gave me the heads up to discover.
I also got introduced to the farmer who’s kindly letting me show up and park down the track to get the shots I’m after.
There is a wide vista on show here but the conditions so far have been clear skies so I’m hoping to return soon to capture some drama to add to my collection.
