Masters of Landscape Photography

Over the Christmas break I bought a new book “Masters of Landscape Photography”. I would love to say I was featured, but alas I have been overlooked once more. Ordinarily I wouldn’t have bothered with a book such as this, but Amazon was offering a heavy discount. I took a chance and I think I … Continue reading Masters of Landscape Photography

Friday Image No.165

Over the Christmas break I headed out for a walk a number of times. Quite often I found myself taking the Fuji X-T2. Now that I have the 18-135mm lens, I find I’m using it more frequently as a “grab and go” camera. I’m also very pleased with the results. On this particular morning, it … Continue reading Friday Image No.165

It Snowed

The weather forecasters managed to get it right (almost) and it snowed at the weekend. What they didn’t quite get right was the volume of snow. The 10-20cm of predicted was more like 5cm.

Now I need to qualify that statement as I have taken plenty of photographs in the area. The difference this time is that I was heading out for the purpose of photography and nothing … Continue reading Heading Out With A Purpose

Friday Image No. 149

I suspect many of you, like me are guilty of ignoring the landscape on our doorstep. Very recently I bought a book covering different photo locations in the Peak District (http://amzn.to/2eSTEEk). As I started to flip through the book, I thought I recognised a couple of locations. Sure enough, there was a section on locations … Continue reading Friday Image No. 149

No Friday Image

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you may have noticed I didn’t publish the usual Friday Image last week. Instead, I was at a used car dealership picking up a new car. I decided after more than 6 years of excellent service, it was time to change my trusty Honda Civic for a … Continue reading No Friday Image
