Happisburgh

Sunday 20 July 2014

Here's an image I have been working on for a few weeks. It is one of the blocks at Happisburgh that used to be the foundations for the old steps down to the beach. The steps were removed a few years ago after the new ramp was constructed (and ...

Cley New Cut Outfall Sluice

Sunday 27 April 2014

A few different versions of an image I've been working on... This is out at Cley-next-the-Sea, where the road to the beach car park crosses the New Cut sluice. One from an earlier visit to see what the location looked like last week, and then a new version this ...

Limestone Pavement

I went up to the Yorkshire Dales and took these images around the limestone pavement avove Twisleton Scar End. It was raining for most of the day but I got about an hour between the showers. The first and last images are not quite mono conversions. I left the middle ...

Sunset at the Deep End

Thursday 6 February 2014

This is an image from July 2012 of the tidal pool at Brixham in Devon when high tide coincided with sunset. The water only went a few inches above the floor in the foreground—I would like to go back some time when the sides of the pool are completely ...

Fixtures of St Mark's Square

Sunday 2 February 2014

This is an image from March 2013 from the clock tower in St Mark's Square, Venice. It is a composite of a few dozen hand-held exposures on a basic point-and-shoot camera. I combined these on the computer to give the effect of a long exposure, and selectively lightened parts ...
