Force Gill near Ribblehead

Last Week’s Shoot – Force Gill

With a week of damp and dreary weather forecast I was looking for a new waterfall to photograph, so I decided to head to Ribblehead and have a walk up Force Gill having spotted Low Force, Force Gill from the path ascending Whernside when I was doing the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk a few years […]

South Bay at Dusk Scarborough

Last Week’s Shoot – Scarborough

I don’t get over to Scarborough as often as I’d like, so I planned in a dusk shoot for this month on a day which had been forecast as light cloud, but as I was travelling over on a (overpriced) Transpennine Express the clouds drifted away revealing blue sky and sunshine, so I was glad […]

Bradford City Hall at Dusk

Last Week’s Shoot – Bradford

I’d been wanting to get back to Bradford for some more dusk shots for a while, as I’ve not been since the scaffolding came down from the City Hall, so I picked a nice sunny day last week and set off in time to get some sunlit architectural images in the afternoon before my dusk […]

The Old Post Office Building and Black Pronce Statue at dusk in City Square Leeds

Last Week’s Shoot – Leeds City Square

I popped into Leeds one afternoon last week to get some more dusk shots that might suit my 2022 calendars (the 2021 designs are all done!) intending to have another look at Millennium Square and the Civic Hall, which I had done last January but the views of the Civic Hall had been marred by […]

Knaresborough Castle at Dusk

Last Week’s Shoot – Pink Sky at Knaresborough Castle

With just a two day week after the Christmas break last week, I thought I’d ease into the New Year gently with a short stroll round to Knaresborough Castle for a dusk shoot on Friday afternoon.  This turned out to be a great choice with a lovely pink sky over the castle and viaduct… It […]

Pateley Bridge at Christmas

Last Week’s Shoot – Pateley Bridge at Christmas

I had another trip out in search of Christmassy dusk shots last week.  This time it was the turn of Pateley Bridge as I thought it would be nice to have a Christmas image available for my Nidderdale calendar next year! The forecast had been for light cloud but no rain, so the shower that […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York at Christmas

I had a trip into York last week to look for some Christmassy shots for my 2021 Yorkshire Calendar, amongst other things, so headed straight for St Helen’s Square for the Christmas Tree and nearby Stonegate. Of course, the problem with urban Christmas dusk shoots is that they coincide with rush hour, so the whole […]

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 […]
