Harrogate in Summer

As it’s just a ten minute train ride from Knaresborough this was a very lazy shoot for me, but I thought I’d add a few summery shots around the centre of Harrogate – they may well come in handy for my 2020 calendar! One good thing about returning to the same subjects each year is […]

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 […]
