Last Week’s Shoot – Autumn Woodland

I had a first foray of the autumn into some local woodland to see how the colours are coming along before making a longer walk along the Nidd Gorge later in the month. The first stop was Mackintosh Park, which makes a short but pretty loop walk off the Beryl Burton Cycleway by the River […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Whixley and Allerton Mauleverer

As I mentioned in my September Shoots post most of my shoots recently have been on foot, but I did make one train trip in September (my first since February!) all the way to Cattal – one stop down the line towards York… Although the station is called Cattal, it is halfway between Cattal and […]

September Shoots and an Alamy Milestone!

I’ve added quite a few more local images during September with most of my shoots taking place on foot from here in Knaresborough… Although the days are getting shorter and colder, I’m looking forward to the autumn here as the trees in the Nidd Gorge reach their colourful best. There are already hints of autumn […]

Rudding Gates in Follifoot near Harrogate

Follifoot and Spofforth

Since starting up my outdoor shoots again I’ve been concentrating on local subjects (generally where I can walk to!) with finishing off the selection of images for my 2022 calendar range in mind. One such local walk took me to Follifoot and, as it was a lovely day, on to Spofforth and back to Knaresborough […]

Conyngham Hall from the sunken garden Knaresborough North Yorkshire England

Last Week’s Shoot – Knaresborough

After four months shooting stock images indoors it was great to get out again with a camera last week – though I didn’t go very far, picking a sunny morning for a short walk around Knaresborough to get some local shots for my 2022 calendar range… The castle ruins looked great in the morning sunshine […]

Knaresborough Castle at Sunset

Last Week’s Shoot – Knaresborough in Spring

As I rely on public transport for most of my photo shoots I’ve obviously had to rip up my shoot plan for the immediate future, so in lieu of a full shoot last week, here are a few spring images captured on my exercise walks to Conyngham Hall and back last week and a sunset […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Ripon and Harrogate

I had a trip up to Ripon last week – not specifically for a shoot, but I popped my little E-M10 Olympus in my bag (it doesn’t take up much room) just in case!  The weather was a bit overcast, but it was quite nice for spring flowers, so I had a look at the […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Leeds South Bank

This is actually a shoot from two weeks ago as I was catching up on processing my Scotland images last week!  I was going to an FSB networking meeting in Leeds in the evening and, as it was a sunny afternoon, I went along a bit earlier and explored the South Bank area a bit […]

Rock Formation on Brimham Moor

Last Week’s Shoot – Brimham Moor

After the previous week’s somewhat tricky conditions at Force Gill I was hoping for better weather for my landscape photography shoot at Brimham Moor (and Rocks) last week.  The forecast was for light cloud and low wind so I set out early enough to explore the moor and get some shots in the afternoon if […]
