I Now Know Where This Is

Last week I shared an infrared image that I’d recently found on my hard drive, but which wasn’t in my image library. This week I’m sharing another image that I shot a short distance from the last one. In fact, if you look at last week’s image, you can see this tree about 100m behind … Continue reading I Now Know Where This Is

I Wish I Could Remember Where I Was

Location unknown. Panasonic GX1 with infrared conversion.

I’ve just been looking through my photo archive when I found a folder I didn’t recognise. Inside were other folders and inside those were thousands of images. Images that I had shot a long time ago using a Panasonic GX1 infrared camera. For some reason I hadn’t imported these files to Lightroom. Wow! Thinking about … Continue reading I Wish I Could Remember Where I Was

What Great Photography Conditions

Snow on the farm. Saddleworth

This week it’s finally stopped raining and the weather has turned cold. Instead, it’s been snowing with temperatures dropping sharply overnight. I love these conditions for photography. Early morning frost and a covering of snow can transform even a dull landscape. But you can get even better light for photography when you venture out in … Continue reading What Great Photography Conditions

Black & White Photography has me Fascinated

Silver Birch in the mist, Peak Disitrict

This past week has seen me finishing the layouts for the print version of my Affinity Photo How To book. This afternoon I hit the publish button and with a bit of luck, the print version will be on sale on Amazon within 24 hours. Unfortunately, with most of my time going into the book, … Continue reading Black & White Photography has me Fascinated

Making the Most of the “Bad” Weather

Huddersfield Narrow canal, Uppermill, Saddleworth (Robin Whalley)

Whilst I haven’t done any photography this week, mainly due to poor weather, I have been processing some old images. What I realised whilst doing this was that I had a nice collection of local images, captured in we photographers like to call “Bad Weather”. But the reality is that with the right processing, even … Continue reading Making the Most of the “Bad” Weather

The End of a Very Wet Week

Huddersfield Narrow Canal, Uppermill, Saddleworth. Fuji XT2 with Fuji 18-135 lens.

I haven’t done much photography this week due to the lockdown and weather (again). We had storm Christoph blow in with continuous rain for three days, which then turned to snow on Wednesday night. That was also when our cellar flooded with 6 inches of water coming up through the floor. I spent that evening … Continue reading The End of a Very Wet Week

Does this Photo Work for You?

Lyn Gwynant, Snowdonia, Fuji XT1 with Fuji 16-55 lens.

This week I want to share a shot from 2016. Lyn Gwynant, Snowdonia, Fuji XT1 with Fuji 16-55 lens. The lake in the scene is Llyn Gwynant in Snowdonia, Wales. I’ve visited this location quite a few times in various conditions but never shot a good sunset. Lyn Gwynant, Snowdonia, Fuji XT1 with Fuji 16-55 … Continue reading Does this Photo Work for You?

A New Year and a New Lockdown

Lingmore Fell, The Lake District

Happy New Year. I hope you managed to have a nice Christmas and New Year. Mine was uneventful except for my boiler breaking down on Christmas Eve. We spent the Christmas/New Year period without heating or hot water. After that experience, I’m quite happy to stay indoors and keep warm during the lockdown. With the … Continue reading A New Year and a New Lockdown

Testing my Resolve

Pre dawn light on the rocks near surprise view in the peak district

This past couple of weeks has felt like someone somewhere has been testing me. Last week I mentioned problems with my editing software and that I was unable to edit but also, I couldn’t publish articles on my website. Then at the weekend, I ventured out with my camera (I should have known better), but … Continue reading Testing my Resolve

It’s Just the Friday Image

Cloud Inversion viewed from the Roaches

For once I don’t have too much to say. I’ve spent the week sheltering from the terrible weather; it’s rained here every day and in the brief gaps between the rain it’s been grey and gloomy. I thought the poor weather would be a great opportunity to work on finishing my new book but even … Continue reading It’s Just the Friday Image
