Last Week’s Shoot – Nidd Gorge Woods

I had a walk into Nidd Gorge Woods near Knaresborough last week to catch a few of the bluebells while they were still in flower – I’m very lucky to have this lovely Woodland Trust woodland within walking distance of my house! On the way I wandered through Mackintosh Park to see how the wild […]

Last Week’s Shoot – The Stray, Harrogate

This shoot was actually the week before last and you may have seen a few images from it on my Instagram feed if you’re on there, but there was such a nice crop of cherry blossom on The Stray this year that I thought I’d share a few more images on the blog! I’d gone […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Leeds Dock

I had another trip into Leeds last week on a sunny afternoon, hoping for a nice dusk shoot at Leeds Dock and Royal Armouries. On the way from the railway station I couldn’t resist one or two shots on some of the city centre architecture, particularly the splendid Leeds City Markets building.  This late Victorian/early […]

Happy New Year!

I’m now back in the office and looking at plans for 2019, so I thought I’d share a few images from January 2016, which seems to be the last time I had a winter trip up to Ribblehead – so perhaps that should be on the cards for this month! I’ve got a few calendars […]

Leeds at Christmas

I managed to fit in another Christmas dusk shoot this week – this time I headed down to Leeds as I’ve not covered the city centre at this time of year for a while… On the Headrow, the Leeds Wheel of Light looked very colourful and particularly effective whilst moving – though I had to […]

New Christmas Images

I’ve been out and about locally adding a few new Christmassy images , which may make an appearance in my 2020 range of calendars! Montpellier Hill in Harrogate was looking particulatly pretty this year with white lights across the entrance to Montpellier Mews and Christmas trees in the shop windows. I prefer to shoot my […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Guisecliff Wood

I’ve been to Guisecliff Wood quite a few times in autumn, but always seemed to arrive too late for the trees around the tarn, so I made a point of going in mid-October this year – and wasn’t disappointed! I’ve wandered along the river from Pateley Bridge to Glasshouses in the past and then up […]

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 […]
