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 – 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 […]

Haworth at Dusk

I’ve not managed to get out with the camera that much so far this year with lots of jobs in the office to deal with, but I did have another trip to Haworth recently, as I’d wanted return to photograph the Main Street at dusk – and winter is a great time to do this […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Driffield and Hull

Having stayed over with friends in Driffield after a visit to the coast at Scarborough, I was planning to return via Hull for a third visit to look at the 2017 UK City of Culture.  The weather forecast was a but iffy – mostly showers, but I was hoping for a decent dusk shoot nonetheless. […]

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 – 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 […]
