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 […]

The Twelve Apostles and Burley Moor

I thought it was a bit ironic as a Yorkshire photographer that I’ve been to and photographed the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia but I’d never been to the Twelve Apostles stone circle on Burley Moor!  So this summer, with the heather in bloom, I decided to go and have […]

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 […]

Happy Yorkshire Day!

To celebrate Yorkshire Day today here are just a few images from my favourite shoots so far this year.  The featured image above is Haworth at dusk – as it’s just two days since Emily Brontë’s 200th birthday!  I’ve also picked a dusk shot from the renovated Piece Hall at Halifax, Leeds Town Hall from […]

On Haworth Moor at Top Withins

Happy Birthday Emily!

In my Last Week’s Shoot – A Brontë Pilgrimage post last summer I talked about how reading Wuthering Heights had led me back to explore Haworth Moor again some time after my initial photo shoot there ten years ago (and I’ve been back a few times since) so I thought in honour of Emily Brontë’s 200th […]

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 […]

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 – Castle Hill, Huddersfield

I’ve been meaning to have a trip to Castle Hill for a while so on a rare (so far at least) sunny spring day last week I took the train over to Berry Brow station (a couple of stops down the Penistone Line from Huddersfield) and took the steep slog up the hill – it’s […]

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 […]
