I suspect many of [...]

Earlier in the week I popped up the Motorway (a couple of hours) to the Yorkshire Dales. As the weather was nice we decided to do the Waterfalls Walk at Ingleton. We like the walk and often extend it by walking further up Whernside to explore the scar. Although I took plenty of shots from [...]

This image was captured in the Lake District a couple of weeks back. It features the mountains of the Langdales and was captured from [...]

Photography Software Space Issue

For a couple of years, I have been frustrated by the lack of space on my Windows PC C: Drive. This is a custom-built PC which uses a 111Gb SSD (solid state drive) for Windows. What’s frustrating is that Windows 10 doesn’t take much space, I load all applications to another drive, but my C: [...]
