Happy New Photo Year

It’s the start of a new year and I hope that it’s a great one for your photography. There are lots of New Year Resolution posts and emails doing the rounds so I won’t add to them. Instead, I want to share an image that I shot back in October 2019. Sunset view from Higger … Continue reading Happy New Photo Year

Photographing the First Signs of Winter

I was laid up ill for most of last week. This week I’m feeling a lot better but still not 100%. I did however manage to get out for a brief (very chilly) walk on Wednesday. It’s been below zero here for the past week, even during the day. I headed up the hill to … Continue reading Photographing the First Signs of Winter

Higger Tor Frosty Landscape

Today’s post will be a short one. I’ve been laid up ill all week and haven’t been able to do much. Outside I can see that we’ve had the first real frost of this winter. As I haven’t been out, I decided to share a shot from the start of this year which was the … Continue reading Higger Tor Frosty Landscape

A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

Earlier this week, Tuesday to be precise, I headed over to Blackpool with a friend. Blackpool is a great location for photography and often produces amazing sunsets at this time of year. As the conditions looked promising, we thought this would be worth trying. Whilst I enjoyed the morning, my shots weren’t up to much. … Continue reading A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

Another Misty Landscape from Bole Hill Quarry

Last week, I shared an image that I had taken at Bole Hill Quarry in the Peak District. This week it’s the turn of another from the same shoot. It’s difficult to describe quite how wet and unpleasant it was when I took this shot, although worse rain was still to come. The only thing … Continue reading Another Misty Landscape from Bole Hill Quarry

Wet & Misty in the Peak District

On Wednesday, I arrived home from a trip to the Lake District where the colours were turning autumnal. Feeling motivated to get out for some photography, I checked the weather forecast. I could see that a mist was predicted in some parts of the Peak District the following day. It looked like there would be … Continue reading Wet & Misty in the Peak District

Coincidence Can be Amazing

I hope that you missed me last Friday. I didn’t post any images because I took the week off. I wanted to finish building some steps and I also went on a walking holiday to the Isle of Man. Whilst there, I shot this woodland image. Isle of Man woodland trail I spotted this as … Continue reading Coincidence Can be Amazing

Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

Here in the North West of England, the weather has turned decidedly chilly in the past couple of weeks. Whilst it doesn’t often feel warm where I live, the house feels more like a fridge at the moment. It may have something to do with the 24” thick solid stone walls. With the feel of … Continue reading Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama

Yesterday, I was wondering what image to share in today’s blog post. At the time I was rewriting an old tutorial for my website on stitching panoramas in Lightroom. This got me thinking about publishing a YouTube video on the subject (which I’m now working on). As part of developing the video idea, I began … Continue reading The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama
