The Lakes in December

Friday 25 December 2015

More to follow, but here are a few images from up in the Lakes around Christmas 2015, just after the flooding earlier in December. I have never seen Derwentwater so high. The first three are all from Ashness Jetty (on the Keswick-Borrowdale road, at the foot of the turning for ...

Death Valley

Saturday 25 July 2015

I spent a few nights in Death Valley at the start of July—maybe not the best time of year to visit, with the temperature still above 100F when I arrived at 2am. It fitted in with a work trip, and I managed a bit of photography around sunset and ...

Skye in December

Wednesday 7 January 2015

I spent six nights in Skye just before Christmas. There was a lovely mix of weather – snow on the hils some mornings, nice golden light at sunset one day, and plenty of opportunities to practice photography in the rain! Most of these are quite well known locations. One that perhaps ...

Tripods and Umbrellas

Wednesday 3 December 2014

A bit more about how I have been taking photographs in the rain... I normally use a 16-35mm wide-angle lens on a full-frame body, and so I can't get much protection from a lens hood. In any case, I normally use Lee slot-in filters which could not be attached ...

Norfolk in the Rain

Sunday 23 November 2014

A trip out to the Norfolk coast in the rain, going back to two of my favourite locations to see what they look like in these conditions. I had my umbrella clamped onto the tripod to keep everything dry, and the bag hanging underneath to try to hold it all ...

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 ...

The Beach Huts at Wells

Friday 11 April 2014

I just learnt that my image Beach Huts at Wells is on the shortlist for the RPS International Print exhibition. The first round of judging is done online, and now I need to actually make a print and submit it. It is a composite image of the beach huts at ...

Didcot Railway Centre

Wednesday 19 February 2014

I went to the Didcot Railway Centre yesterday. These images are all from inside the engine shed, taken with a Canon 85mm f/1.2 at f/1.2, trying to use the shallow depth of field to keep part of the engine in sharp focus with the surrounding workshop ...
