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 […]

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 […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York on a Sunny Spring Day

This shoot is actually from the week before last – you remember when it was briefly summer? – but it’s taken me until now to get all of the images processed up!  I decided to use the sunny spring weather to freshen up my image collection of York… From the station I had a wander […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Castle Hill, Huddersfield

I’ve been meaning to have a trip to Castle Hill for a while so on a rare (so far at least) sunny spring day last week I took the train over to Berry Brow station (a couple of stops down the Penistone Line from Huddersfield) and took the steep slog up the hill – it’s […]
