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 […]

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 – 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 – Dundee at Dusk

I’m just back from what seems to have become an annual winter trip to St Andrews in Fife, so have got plenty of processing to catch up on.  For my dusk shoot on the day I arrived I left the Kingdom of Fife and crossed the River Tay to Dundee. The main subject I had […]
