The Old Post Office Building and Black Pronce Statue at dusk in City Square Leeds

Last Week’s Shoot – Leeds City Square

I popped into Leeds one afternoon last week to get some more dusk shots that might suit my 2022 calendars (the 2021 designs are all done!) intending to have another look at Millennium Square and the Civic Hall, which I had done last January but the views of the Civic Hall had been marred by […]

Knaresborough Castle at Dusk

Last Week’s Shoot – Pink Sky at Knaresborough Castle

With just a two day week after the Christmas break last week, I thought I’d ease into the New Year gently with a short stroll round to Knaresborough Castle for a dusk shoot on Friday afternoon.  This turned out to be a great choice with a lovely pink sky over the castle and viaduct… It […]

Pateley Bridge at Christmas

Last Week’s Shoot – Pateley Bridge at Christmas

I had another trip out in search of Christmassy dusk shots last week.  This time it was the turn of Pateley Bridge as I thought it would be nice to have a Christmas image available for my Nidderdale calendar next year! The forecast had been for light cloud but no rain, so the shower that […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York at Christmas

I had a trip into York last week to look for some Christmassy shots for my 2021 Yorkshire Calendar, amongst other things, so headed straight for St Helen’s Square for the Christmas Tree and nearby Stonegate. Of course, the problem with urban Christmas dusk shoots is that they coincide with rush hour, so the whole […]

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 […]

Royal Armouries Museum Leeds

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 […]
