Wild Garlic in Skipton Woods

I did a few Yorkshire spring woodland shoots last year for the Woodland Trust and was so impressed with the wild garlic in Skipton Castle Woods that I decided to return this year for another look. I wasn’t disappointed with a fantastic crop of flowers this year which were just about at their peak on […]

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 – Barnsley and Rotherham

I’ve been continuing with adding new images to the South Yorkshire section of the website recently and, having covered Barnsley last year on a summer’s afternoon I had been intending for a while to get back there and photograph the lovely Portland stone Town Hall in morning light and at dusk. The front of 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 […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Doncaster

I managed to squeeze in three dusk shoots last week – two quick local ones on nice clear evenings but the main trip was a visit to Doncaster to photograph the Minster at dusk… As I’d never been before, I picked up a map from the tourist information office on the High Street before having […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York Castle at Dusk

On my last visit to York to photograph Clifford’s Tower at dusk the floodlights hadn’t been working so I’ve been planning a return visit for a while and with a nice still sunny afternoon last week it seemed like an ideal shoot for the first week of the New Year… I arrived in the afternoon […]

Latest Work – York at Dusk

Happy New Year!  Although I’m starting the working year with the usual review of plans for the coming months, I had a bit of image processing to finish off from before the Christmas break so I got that out of the way and up on the website yesterday… The images were mainly of York at […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Harrogate at Christmas

I’ve photographed the centre of Harrogate at Christmas before but following trip along Leeds Road on the 36 recently I wanted to try to do something with the pretty fairy lights in the trees alongside The Stray… Of course dusk at this time of year coincides pretty well with rush hour and as all the […]

Yorkshire Autumn Images

I’ve just given the blog a new look with an improved layout (I hope!) and have changed the fonts and colours across the blog and the main website to make them more consistent.  With bringing the blog and website closer together in mind, I’ve also created a new blog category for Latest Work in which […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York at Dusk

I had photographed Precentor’s Court in York in the afternoon on a shoot earlier in the year and intended to return for a dusk shoot, so with the nights drawing in and sunset at around 6pm I picked a day with a sunny afternoon forecast and set off on the train. From the station I […]
