More Forgotten Images

One of the great things about having a large back catalogue of images is that you can always find something new. This week I spent some time looking back at some images I shot in Cornwall 2015. Previously I’ve only processed a couple of these, but now that I’m looking at them, I can see … Continue reading More Forgotten Images

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

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

Surprised by My Photo Failures

Curbar Edge, Blue Hour After a Storm

I often say that I like to leave my images for a few months before deciding on the ones I like. But this image I left over 6 years. Curbar Edge, December 2013 following a heavy storm. Olympus EM5. Why? Because I had bed memories of the trip. I remember heading out for the day … Continue reading Surprised by My Photo Failures

An Evening with the Samyang 12mm

Curbar Edge Sunset, The Peak District

I finally made it out in the evening this last week to take some shots. I met an old friend up on Curbar Edge in the Peak District and we did some socially distanced photography. I really needed this trip and noticed lock down has made my photography very rusty. I struggled to use the … Continue reading An Evening with the Samyang 12mm

Woodland Photography in Summer

Woodland in infrared.

When I think of woodland photography, I tend to think of soft pastel colours and trees shrouded in a thin veil of mist in Autumn. But having recently been bitten (I think this is the fourth time) by the infrared bug, I’m finding the recent sunny days we are enjoying perfect. Woodland in Saddleworth. Infrared … Continue reading Woodland Photography in Summer

It’s Whit Friday but Not as We Know It

A typical Band Contest Day in Saddleworth

A typical Saddleworth Band Contest Day Today is Whit Friday and in Saddleworth where I live, that means only one thing. It’s Band Contest Day. But this year is different. The streets are quiet and as I sit here, I can’t hear any bands playing. Ordinarily the streets would be full of people and the … Continue reading It’s Whit Friday but Not as We Know It

More Digital Infrared Photography

The Moors above Saddleworth in Infrared, Fuji X-T2

You’ll need to excuse me this week. The “new toy” effect hasn’t worn off from my infrared converted digital camera so I’m sharing another recent shot. The Moors above Saddleworth in Infrared (click the image to enlarge) You may already have seen this on my Instagram feed but I wanted to share it here because … Continue reading More Digital Infrared Photography

A Landscape Photographer in Lockdown

Saddleworh Footpath. Fuji XE3 with 16mm lens.

Saddleworth footpath. Fuji XE3 with 16mm lens. 1/160" at f/5.0 and ISO250. I’ve lost count of the number of weeks we’ve been in lockdown (unless my wife reminds me). The only thing I know for certain is that I really need a haircut. Whilst I’ve been coping with lockdown fine, I’ve really missed getting out … Continue reading A Landscape Photographer in Lockdown
