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 […]

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 […]

I have all six designs in stock at the moment but Knaresborough, Harrogate and Boroughbridge are running low, so please order soon to avoid disappointment. Ripon, Nidderdale and Yorkshire designs complete the 2019 […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Ripon at Christmas

I had a fairly easy shoot last week – an afternoon trip up to Ripon to shoot some Christmassy shots around the cathedral and market place at dusk… I started at the cathedral and did a few sunset shots first and then waited for the floodlights to come on as dusk arrived. The view along […]

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 […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York at Christmas

Although it was still November (just) a number of Christmas markets had already cropped up so I thought I’d head off to York in the afternoon, have a look at the St Nicholas Fair and do a Christmas dusk shoot. I arrived as the sun was setting and had a wander into Museum Gardens first […]

Think Snow at Knaresborough by Mark Sunderland

Thick Snow in Knaresborough

I’m pleased to announce that my wintry image of Knareborough Viaduct and the River Nidd from the Castle Top is now available in Mark Denton’s range of panoramic greetings cards as card no. 227 […]
