Dramatic Whiby Pier sunset

Dramatic sunset on Whitby Pier, North Yorkshire. Fuji X-T2, 18-135 f3.5-5.6 WR at 18mm, ISO200, 0.7" at f/10.0. Tripod mounted. Today I was going to share a shot from a recent shoot I did in the Peak District, but I’ve decided to save that for another day. Instead I have this image which I shot … Continue reading Friday Image No.210

Punakaiki, New Zealand

Today I was going to share an image of the Franz Joseph Glacier. But having published two mountain images in the past two weeks I decided I wanted a change. Looking through my recent collection of images from New Zealand I picked this image from Punakaiki with its famous pancake rocks. Fuji X-T2, 10-24 lens, … Continue reading Friday Image No.202

Blackpool pier and beach

On Monday, just before the arrival of the snow and arctic winds in the UK, I visited Blackpool. I have already shared one of the images from that trip, where the performance of the Fuji 18-55 lens quite literally amazed me. This post shows another image from the trip, also shot with the same lens. … Continue reading Friday Image No.172

Formby Beach at Sunset

It’s felt like an eternity since I witnessed a good sunset or sunrise. But last weekend, I made a trip over to Formby with a friend and it was as if everything just fell into place. The day had been a little frustrating, alternating between too much cloud and not enough. As we sat on … Continue reading Friday Image No. 169

Upgrading Exposure

I have finally taken the plunge and upgraded my copy of Exposure from Alien Skin. This is a great all-purpose piece of editing software which I tend to use as a plug in to Photoshop. What I really like are the film simulations. I already owned Exposure and was resisting the temptation to upgrade. What … Continue reading Upgrading Exposure

Friday Image No.127

I’m sat here this evening searching my images to find a Friday image to share. As I do so, the overwhelming feeling I have is that all the images are too “in your face”. They are all competing too hard for my attention and as a result none of them hold it. But with Yin … Continue reading Friday Image No.127

Friday Image No.126

I seem to say it every Friday, but this week has again been packed. One day I will finally catch up with myself (I hope). Probably the best thing to have happen was being able to track down the issue with my Fuji telephoto lens and realising it was caused by my ND Grad filters. … Continue reading Friday Image No.126

Friday Image No. 123

I find it odd that I can seldom pick my best work immediately after a shoot. In fact, I find I often need to leave a batch of images at least 6 months before I can pick the ones I’m happiest with. Often, as is the case with this image, I need to leave the … Continue reading Friday Image No. 123

Friday Image No.95

For the Friday image this week, I wanted to share another shot from my recent trip. The rock in the frame is rather famous (I could find a Wikipedia page anyway https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haystack_Rock) and is called Haystack Rock. It’s located at Canon Beach in Oregon which is a fantastic place to visit. It's a little like … Continue reading Friday Image No.95

Friday image No.039

This week's Friday image was shot on my trip to Wales last week. It was 10:00 in the morning on Saturday and the rain was coming down hard from the dark sky. My friend checked the weather forecast and announced the weather would clear at 11:00 and that we should leave now to be ready … Continue reading Friday image No.039
