Friday Image No.202

Punakaiki, New Zealand

Today I was going to share an image of the Franz Joseph Glacier. But having published two mountain images in the past two weeks I decided I wanted a change. Looking through my recent collection of images from New Zealand I picked this image from Punakaiki with its famous pancake rocks. Fuji X-T2, 10-24 lens, … Continue reading Friday Image No.202

My saga with the corrupt Drobo is rumbling on. The Data Recovery software I was running finally completed it’s scan in the early hours of this morning, having been running all week. I watched eagerly as the final sectors were scanned and the progress bar ticked over from 99% to 100%. And then nothing happened; … Continue reading Friday Image No. 188

Working on a Recovery

It’s been four days since my image library storage corrupted and the data recovery software is still running. To be completely honest I wasted two days switching between different data recovery solutions because I thought they were too slow. The current one has been running for 48 hours and is 59% complete. I think this … Continue reading Working on a Recovery

Derwentwater, The Lake District

Some of the best light you can find as a photographer is in a storm. But you don’t want to be in the storm, you want to be on the edge looking in. That’s something you can’t plan for; you need to get lucky. And so it was with this shot looking across Derwentwater. Here … Continue reading Friday Image No. 176

Friday Image No.175

Derwentwater, Keswick, The lake District.

Let’s start with a big apology; the Friday image this week is late and I'm sorry. I know, it’s Saturday but it's been a very, very busy week. Despite this, I still wanted to share the image I had earmarked. I shot this a couple of weeks back on an icy trip to the Lake … Continue reading Friday Image No.175

Dramatic Sunset Processing – Have I Crossed a Line

Dramatic Sunset Photo Processing Trick

I wanted to share this recent video I posted on YouTube and ask an important question. Is what I’m doing in this video “cheating”? https://youtu.be/RQmBbWCHHDE Personally, I think it falls into a grey area. I’m not sure it’s exactly “cheating” but I do feel that it’s starting to cross a line. It would be good … Continue reading Dramatic Sunset Processing – Have I Crossed a Line

Derwentwater, Keswick, Lake District.

How the weather has changed this week. Thursday, just over a week ago, we were snowed in. Friday saw most of the country grind to a halt with snow, and Saturday, only mad people ventured out. That’s when I seized my opportunity and headed up the Lake District to meet my friend Steve. It was … Continue reading Friday Image No.173

Formby Beach at Sunset

It’s felt like an eternity since I witnessed a good sunset or sunrise. But last weekend, I made a trip over to Formby with a friend and it was as if everything just fell into place. The day had been a little frustrating, alternating between too much cloud and not enough. As we sat on … Continue reading Friday Image No. 169

Friday Image No. 157

It’s been an eventful couple of weeks in our house with my daughter getting married. There were guests from around the world and a quite a few people staying with us. It’s not quite over with yet but hopefully by the end of next week things will be back to normal. In the interim, I … Continue reading Friday Image No. 157
