Last Week’s Shoot – Nidd Gorge Woods

I had a walk into Nidd Gorge Woods near Knaresborough last week to catch a few of the bluebells while they were still in flower – I’m very lucky to have this lovely Woodland Trust woodland within walking distance of my house! On the way I wandered through Mackintosh Park to see how the wild […]

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

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 – Skipton Woods

This was actually a walk on my day off after our final workshop of the season at Bolton Abbey.  The colours in Strid Wood had been fantastic during the workshop, so a look at nearby Skipton Castle Woods was in order – and as this was a day off I just grabbed the trusty little […]
