More Forgotten Images

One of the great things about having a large back catalogue of images is that you can always find something new. This week I spent some time looking back at some images I shot in Cornwall 2015. Previously I’ve only processed a couple of these, but now that I’m looking at them, I can see … Continue reading More Forgotten Images

A Mid-Week Photo Walk with a Difference

Last weekend I headed onto the local moors for a longer walk and some much-needed exercise. When you usual walk around 15-20km over sometimes quite steep ground, walking around the village for an hour doesn’t keep you fit. During the recent restrictions I’ve found my fitness suffering and I’ve noticed my asthma returning so it … Continue reading A Mid-Week Photo Walk with a Difference

I Now Know Where This Is

Last week I shared an infrared image that I’d recently found on my hard drive, but which wasn’t in my image library. This week I’m sharing another image that I shot a short distance from the last one. In fact, if you look at last week’s image, you can see this tree about 100m behind … Continue reading I Now Know Where This Is

Making the Most of the “Bad” Weather

Huddersfield Narrow canal, Uppermill, Saddleworth (Robin Whalley)

Whilst I haven’t done any photography this week, mainly due to poor weather, I have been processing some old images. What I realised whilst doing this was that I had a nice collection of local images, captured in we photographers like to call “Bad Weather”. But the reality is that with the right processing, even … Continue reading Making the Most of the “Bad” Weather

A New Year and a New Lockdown

Lingmore Fell, The Lake District

Happy New Year. I hope you managed to have a nice Christmas and New Year. Mine was uneventful except for my boiler breaking down on Christmas Eve. We spent the Christmas/New Year period without heating or hot water. After that experience, I’m quite happy to stay indoors and keep warm during the lockdown. With the … Continue reading A New Year and a New Lockdown

A Cautionary Tale – Check Your Camera Settings

View from the Roaches on a foggy morning.

Originally, I planned to start this post with some of the great Black Friday deals, but I won’t; you’ll find those later. Instead, I want to share an experience. Yesterday I did a dawn shoot over at The Roaches. Although the UK is in lockdown, I had to shoot some material. The weather conditions were … Continue reading A Cautionary Tale – Check Your Camera Settings

Yes, this is Blackpool

Blackpool North Pier after sunset

Earlier this week I took a day off to visit Blackpool. To be quite honest, I wasn’t looking forward to the overcrowded seafront and hordes of people forgetting how to social distance. How mistaken I was. Everyone was well behaved and there were no crowds. Best of all I had some fantastic fish and chips. … Continue reading Yes, this is Blackpool

Reprocessing Old Gems

Near to Zabriskie Point in Death Valley

Near to Zabriskie Point in Death Valley. Sony RX100, handheld, 1/100” at ISO80 and f/5.6. Click the image to zoom in a little. Something that I’m always doing is going back to reprocess old photos. My wife thinks I’m mad and wasting my time but it’s amazing what you come across. Often it isn’t a … Continue reading Reprocessing Old Gems

Arms Full of Midge Bites

Higger Tor from Carl Wark in the Peak District. Fuji X-T3 with Fuji 10-24 lens. Tuesday I ventured out and met a friend in the Peak District for a little photography. The idea was to photograph the photograph the Heather on a hill called Carl Wark. Neither of us had been before but we knew … Continue reading Arms Full of Midge Bites

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…
