Gordon Highlanders Statue Aberdeen

Last Week’s Shoot – Aberdeen

I’m nearly caught up with the processing from my recent trip to Scotland, so this is a shoot from last month rather than last week!  I’d never been up to Aberdeen before but wanted to have a look round, so I’d booked an advance trip as it’s still a fair distance up from St Andrews […]

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 […]

South Bay at Dusk Scarborough

Last Week’s Shoot – Scarborough

I don’t get over to Scarborough as often as I’d like, so I planned in a dusk shoot for this month on a day which had been forecast as light cloud, but as I was travelling over on a (overpriced) Transpennine Express the clouds drifted away revealing blue sky and sunshine, so I was glad […]

Bradford City Hall at Dusk

Last Week’s Shoot – Bradford

I’d been wanting to get back to Bradford for some more dusk shots for a while, as I’ve not been since the scaffolding came down from the City Hall, so I picked a nice sunny day last week and set off in time to get some sunlit architectural images in the afternoon before my dusk […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 – The Piece Hall at Dusk

Last week I had a trip to Halifax to look at The Piece Hall – my first visit since the re-opening last year with the new courtyard. I arrived in the afternoon to a rather overcast sky, but the low winter sun kept breaking through to light up the building and the old church spire […]
