Bolton Abbey in Autumn

Originally posted on Natural Light Photography Workshops:
We recently wrapped up out eighth year of landscape photography workshops with a great day out at Bolton Abbey (you can read about the day in Sam’s workshop report) so we thought it would be nice to celebrate with a few extra autumnal images of the priory ruins…

Last Week’s Shoot – Guisecliff Wood

I’ve been to Guisecliff Wood quite a few times in autumn, but always seemed to arrive too late for the trees around the tarn, so I made a point of going in mid-October this year – and wasn’t disappointed! I’ve wandered along the river from Pateley Bridge to Glasshouses in the past and then up […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Shipley Glen

Following on from my recent Twelve Apostles and Burley Moor post, here’s another place that I really should have visited before, having been to nearby Saltaire on many occasions, but never quite got round to it… Shipley Glen lies just over the River Aire from Saltaire and to the West of Baildon.  It’s an easy […]

The Twelve Apostles and Burley Moor

I thought it was a bit ironic as a Yorkshire photographer that I’ve been to and photographed the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia but I’d never been to the Twelve Apostles stone circle on Burley Moor!  So this summer, with the heather in bloom, I decided to go and have […]

Harrogate in Summer

As it’s just a ten minute train ride from Knaresborough this was a very lazy shoot for me, but I thought I’d add a few summery shots around the centre of Harrogate – they may well come in handy for my 2020 calendar! One good thing about returning to the same subjects each year is […]

Happy Yorkshire Day!

To celebrate Yorkshire Day today here are just a few images from my favourite shoots so far this year.  The featured image above is Haworth at dusk – as it’s just two days since Emily Brontë’s 200th birthday!  I’ve also picked a dusk shot from the renovated Piece Hall at Halifax, Leeds Town Hall from […]

On Haworth Moor at Top Withins

Happy Birthday Emily!

In my Last Week’s Shoot – A Brontë Pilgrimage post last summer I talked about how reading Wuthering Heights had led me back to explore Haworth Moor again some time after my initial photo shoot there ten years ago (and I’ve been back a few times since) so I thought in honour of Emily Brontë’s 200th […]

Calendars Pre-order Closing Soon!

My 2019 calendar range will be going to press in just over a week, so I have a busy time coming up sorting out orders and getting the calendars out to stockists in Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon and Pateley Bridge in mid-June! If you won’t be able to get to one of the stockists then the […]

A Bluebell Walk from Ripley

I wanted to try a new woodland for bluebell photography this year and, although I have walked through Hollybank Wood at Ripley (near Harrogate) before I’ve never photographed it, so I decided to combine this with a circular walk around Ripley taking in some other woodland too… I set off from the village following Hollybank […]
