We’ve Passed a Tipping Point

Higger Tor Sunrise in Winter

I’ll start this week’s post with a thought that popped into my head earlier today and refuses to be ignored. At some time in the past few years I think we’ve passed a tipping point.  Photo editing skills have now become more important than your skill with a camera. I do think the camera and … Continue reading We’ve Passed a Tipping Point

Finding Hidden Gems in Your Work

Bamburgh, Northumberland.

Back in winter 2013, I visited Bamburgh in Northumberland with a friend. We had both been to the area quite a few times and we had high hopes for our trip. As we made our way down to the beach for what we were sure would be an amazing sunrise, our expectations were sky high. … Continue reading Finding Hidden Gems in Your Work

We returned on Saturday and I headed over to … Continue reading No Friday Image

Heading Out With A Purpose

At the weekend, I did something I haven’t done before. I headed up into the hills behind Dovestones reservoir for photography.

The difference this time is that I was heading out for the purpose of photography and nothing … Continue reading Heading Out With A Purpose

No Friday Image

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you may have noticed I didn’t publish the usual Friday Image last week. Instead, I was at a used car dealership picking up a new car. I decided after more than 6 years of excellent service, it was time to change my trusty Honda Civic for a … Continue reading No Friday Image

Back to Work

Porth Kidney Beach Cornwall

You might have noticed that there was no Friday Image or posts this week. If you were wondering why, it’s because I took a much needed holiday. But despite the holiday I still took a couple of cameras along with me to capture the landscape. Here is one from the beach near to where I … Continue reading Back to Work

Manmade Fascination

What many probably don’t realise is that I have a fascination for manmade objects that have become part of the landscape. Don’t ask me to explain why or how this developed, I … Continue reading Manmade Fascination
