Photo Popularity and Instagram

Last week I posted an image from a long walk that I did in the Peak District. I suspect the shot of the landscape may not have connected with many people. It’s taken me a long time to appreciate the area and I live here. With that in mind, here’s another shot from that walk … Continue reading Photo Popularity and Instagram

Fortunate Landscape Photography

This past week I was fortunate enough to make a couple of trips out to photograph the landscape. The first of these which was Monday was perhaps the most rewarding because I didn’t head out with photography in mind. It just kind of happened during the day which is a great reward. I originally set … Continue reading Fortunate Landscape Photography

Chasing Storm Light

After spending last week indoors isolating because my wife was due to go for an operation (which was cancelled when she got there), I was hoping to do some photography this week. Unfortunately, it’s been dull and overcast every day. I did get out a couple of times but didn’t take any shots because the … Continue reading Chasing Storm Light

Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Last week I shared one of my images from an outing to Surprise View in the Peak District. That image was captured with the Excellent Fuji XT3 and Fuji 10-24mm lens. This week I managed a return visit to the same area but decided to take the Panasonic G9. Although I didn’t intend to shoot … Continue reading Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Heather in the Peak District

This is one of my favourite times of year for landscape photography in the Peak District, because the heather is in flower. On Tuesday evening I made it over to Surprise View to meet a friend with the intention of checking how the heather was doing. As it turned out all the recent sun and … Continue reading Heather in the Peak District

Switching Back to Fuji

Last night, I met up with an old friend on Stanage Edge in the Peak District. The intention was to shoot the sunset, as the sun was due to set just to the side of the edge. If the weather played it’s part, the light on the edge would be spectacular. Often when that’s happened, … Continue reading Switching Back to Fuji

More Panasonic G9 Photography

It was a bit last minute, but I met up with a friend last night in the Peak District. I took along the Panasonic G9 to continue my re-immersion into the world of micro 43. As usual, it didn’t go entirely to plan but there was a brief period of 5-10 minutes where the clouds … Continue reading More Panasonic G9 Photography

Black & White Photography has me Fascinated

Silver Birch in the mist, Peak Disitrict

This past week has seen me finishing the layouts for the print version of my Affinity Photo How To book. This afternoon I hit the publish button and with a bit of luck, the print version will be on sale on Amazon within 24 hours. Unfortunately, with most of my time going into the book, … Continue reading Black & White Photography has me Fascinated

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

Photography on the Edge of Sunset

Heather on Carl Wark in the Peak District

Heather (like many flowers) is a funny thing to photograph. Unlike many people expect, direct light, especially harsh light doesn’t do it any favours. But at the same time, if you don’t have enough light the colours don’t come to life. In recent years I’ve found the best time to photograph this wonderful flower is … Continue reading Photography on the Edge of Sunset
