Livemstone Pavement above Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales

Limestone Pavement above Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales (shot 2011) This week I wanted to share a black and white image that I’ve just processed. I shot the original image back in 2011 using a Canon 5D MKII with 17-40 L series lens. I had the camera mounted on a tripod with a 2 stop … Continue reading And this Weeks Image is…

An Evening Shooting Landscape Photography

Ramshaw Rocks in the Peak District

Ramshaw Rocks in the Peak District. Fuji XT3 with 10-24mm lens. Last night the weather looked promising (not raining) so I ventured out to meet a friend who I hadn’t seen since before the lockdown. We agreed to meet at Ramshaw Rocks near to the Roaches in the Peak District because we thought the heather … Continue reading An Evening Shooting Landscape Photography

Return of the Friday Image

Staircase inside St Paul's Cathedral in black and white

Inside St Paul's Cathedral. Fuji X-T3 with 18-135 lens. Processed using Nik Silver Efex 2. I’ll start with an apology. I haven’t posted a Friday image for the past two weeks. The first week I was away in the Lake District in an area with no phone or internet access. It was wonderful but scary … Continue reading Return of the Friday Image

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

Stairs in the Maritime Museum, Amsterdam

After a short break in Amsterdam last week, I’m now getting back into the groove of doing some work. This week’s Friday image is one I shot whilst I was in Amsterdam (what a great city and nice people by the way - I’m definitely going to return for another visit). This shot isn’t what … Continue reading Friday Image No. 192.

No Friday Image

Water Tower at Spurn Point.

If you’re a regular follower of this blog, you will have noticed there wasn’t a Friday Image last week. This is because I was in Amsterdam for a short break with my wife where we also met up with our daughter, her husband and our grandson. We returned on Saturday and I headed over to … Continue reading No Friday Image

Friday Image No.179

This week I’m doing something a little different. I’m sharing this image, not because I think it’s great, but because I had to make something out of nothing. If you’re interested, here is the starting image. The reason for my problem is that I haven’t had much time recently to shoot new work. The weather … Continue reading Friday Image No.179

Friday Image No. 148

It’s been a very busy week this past week. My daughter has been over from France with her partner, my grandson and a group of their friends. And they have all been staying with me. If you have emailed me and I haven’t replied, I can only apologise. I will reply as soon as the … Continue reading Friday Image No. 148

Infrared Simulation Using Nik

I have seen many articles and videos over the years suggesting ways to create infrared simulations using regular colour photographs. Most of these fall short, possibly because the authors don’t appreciate the true characteristics of infrared. One example I read simply suggested using the channel mixer in Photoshop and using it to turn a blue … Continue reading Infrared Simulation Using Nik
