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 – 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 […]

Leeds at Christmas

I managed to fit in another Christmas dusk shoot this week – this time I headed down to Leeds as I’ve not covered the city centre at this time of year for a while… On the Headrow, the Leeds Wheel of Light looked very colourful and particularly effective whilst moving – though I had to […]

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 […]

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 […]
