Last Week’s Shoot – Ripon Museums

I had a rare interior shoot last week with a visit to Ripon to photograph the Courthouse Museum and Prison & Police Museum for my postcard range. The Courthouse is quite small with just three rooms – a Jury Room, a Retiring Room and the Courtroom but there are plenty of interesting exhibits so with […]

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 – The Stray, Harrogate

This shoot was actually the week before last and you may have seen a few images from it on my Instagram feed if you’re on there, but there was such a nice crop of cherry blossom on The Stray this year that I thought I’d share a few more images on the blog! I’d gone […]

Royal Armouries Museum Leeds

Last Week’s Shoot – Leeds Dock

I had another trip into Leeds last week on a sunny afternoon, hoping for a nice dusk shoot at Leeds Dock and Royal Armouries. On the way from the railway station I couldn’t resist one or two shots on some of the city centre architecture, particularly the splendid Leeds City Markets building.  This late Victorian/early […]

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 […]

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 […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Snow!

Despite the wintry weather I managed to get out to take some local photographs four days in a row last week! I started on foot in Knaresborough with a few atmospheric images as the snow began to fall. On the snowiest morning, the main roads were still clear so I headed to Ripon (by bus […]

Last Week’s Shoot – The Piece Hall at Dusk

Last week I had a trip to Halifax to look at The Piece Hall – my first visit since the re-opening last year with the new courtyard. I arrived in the afternoon to a rather overcast sky, but the low winter sun kept breaking through to light up the building and the old church spire […]
