Last Week’s Shoot – A Brontë Pilgrimage

I had a go at reading Wuthering Heights many years ago but found it rather hard going and didn’t get very far into Emily Brontë’s only novel.  That all changed this year, inspired by the brilliant drama To Walk Invisible last Christmas, I took up the Wuthering Heights challenge again and not only did I […]

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 […]

Wild Garlic in Skipton Woods

I did a few Yorkshire spring woodland shoots last year for the Woodland Trust and was so impressed with the wild garlic in Skipton Castle Woods that I decided to return this year for another look. I wasn’t disappointed with a fantastic crop of flowers this year which were just about at their peak on […]

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 […]

Kirkcaldy and Dysart

I’ve now completed the processing from the recent visit to Fife with images from a walk along part of the Fife Coast Path starting in Kirkcaldy. Kirkcaldy boast a fair few interesting old buildings including Kirkcaldy Old Kirk (featured image, top) and the Scandinavian influenced Town House (above).  Heading along the High Street there’s also […]

Dunfermline and North Queensferry

On my recent visit to Fife I explored a bit further from my base in St Andrews than I had previously with shoots further inland rather than just around the East Neuk of Fife.  One shoot took me to Dunfermline for the day, with a dusk shoot down at North Queensferry to admire the Forth […]

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 […]
