Last Week’s Shoot – Hull

I had a rather chilly dusk shoot to admire the blade sculpture in Queen Victoria Square back in February to start off a planned series of visits to the city during 2017, Hull’s UK City of Culture year.  The Blade had looked great, but there was a lot of work going along relaying paving in […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Knaresborough Summer Sunset

I did a dusk shoot at the Castle Top overlooking the River Nidd and viaduct here in Knaresborough on a pleasant evening early last month and another photographer there asked me how far the sun moved round towards the viaduct towards the summer solstice.  I had to admit that I didn’t know exactly where it […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York in Spring

I know that the daffodils on the banks of Clifford’s Tower are well photographed already, but I’ve only got a few images of them and wanted to add a few more before the landscape changes significantly with the proposed new visitor’s centre at the foot of the steps!  So I headed into town on the […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Barnsley and Rotherham

I’ve been continuing with adding new images to the South Yorkshire section of the website recently and, having covered Barnsley last year on a summer’s afternoon I had been intending for a while to get back there and photograph the lovely Portland stone Town Hall in morning light and at dusk. The front of the […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Hull

I’ve not been to photograph Hull for quite a while and as it is UK City of Culture 2017 I thought I’d better pay it a visit or two this year… I picked a sunny day with the intention of staying until dusk.  I headed first to Queen Victoria Square to have a look at […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Dundee at Dusk

I’m just back from what seems to have become an annual winter trip to St Andrews in Fife, so have got plenty of processing to catch up on.  For my dusk shoot on the day I arrived I left the Kingdom of Fife and crossed the River Tay to Dundee. The main subject I had […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Doncaster

I managed to squeeze in three dusk shoots last week – two quick local ones on nice clear evenings but the main trip was a visit to Doncaster to photograph the Minster at dusk… As I’d never been before, I picked up a map from the tourist information office on the High Street before having […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York Castle at Dusk

On my last visit to York to photograph Clifford’s Tower at dusk the floodlights hadn’t been working so I’ve been planning a return visit for a while and with a nice still sunny afternoon last week it seemed like an ideal shoot for the first week of the New Year… I arrived in the afternoon […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Harrogate at Christmas

I’ve photographed the centre of Harrogate at Christmas before but following trip along Leeds Road on the 36 recently I wanted to try to do something with the pretty fairy lights in the trees alongside The Stray… Of course dusk at this time of year coincides pretty well with rush hour and as all the […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Stainforth and Winskill

Last week’s shoot was actually a workshop recce for Natural Light Photography Workshops along with Sam Oakes and his dog Ella, a black labrador, and proved to be quite a fruitful day for waterfall images… We parked in Stainforth and walked up the old Goat Scar Lane which rises steadily up towards Catrigg Force waterfall.  […]
