Wet days & imagination

Wet and horrible, go for a walk, get cold and muddy, go back home and warm up have a cup of tea. What to do during the Christmas period? Ah,always fancied making a logo so downloaded some freeware, namely Gimp which is a photoshop type programme. Sometime ago I was just rambling about logos with Justin and Ashley and we thought that the Folly would be the best logo for Wimpole Estate and as it turns out it had been thought about years ago.
Well time to have a go and this is what I came up with. A landscape with the folly in with ridge and furrow in the foreground and trees in the background but all simple.
Now here’s the challenge: does anyone out there want to have a go at making a logo for the estate or a part of it. Should have a competition and we may well find we have a real winner without having to pay thousands of pounds to a company to make one. Just a thought

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
