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 […]

Haworth at Dusk

I’ve not managed to get out with the camera that much so far this year with lots of jobs in the office to deal with, but I did have another trip to Haworth recently, as I’d wanted return to photograph the Main Street at dusk – and winter is a great time to do this […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Driffield and Hull

Having stayed over with friends in Driffield after a visit to the coast at Scarborough, I was planning to return via Hull for a third visit to look at the 2017 UK City of Culture.  The weather forecast was a but iffy – mostly showers, but I was hoping for a decent dusk shoot nonetheless. […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Knaresborough Summer Sunset

I did a dusk shoot at the Castle Top overlooking the River Nidd and viaduct here in Knaresborough on a pleasant evening early last month and another photographer there asked me how far the sun moved round towards the viaduct towards the summer solstice.  I had to admit that I didn’t know exactly where it […]

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 […]

Moonrise over the Royal and Ancient Golf Club St Andrews Fife Scotland

Last Week’s Shoot – St Andrews

I’m just back from a trip to St Andrews, which has become a regular winter visit over the past few years with delightful sunrise and sunset locations available just a short walk from the cosy flat on The Scores and so much more to explore along the Fife coast. I’ve barely scratched the surface with […]

Boats on The Dock at Dusk

Robin Hood’s Bay in Summer

As winter approaches I thought now would be a good time to look back at some summer photography.  I had a visit to Robin Hood’s Bay in August and although this was by no means my first visit to this attractive old fishing village on the Yorkshire Coast it was the first time I’d had […]

Rocks and Sea on the Fife Coast

St Andrews from the Fife Coastal Path

I returned to the Fife Coastal Path heading away from St Andrews from East Sands.  There’s an older path which forks away from the main coastal trail which leads down to a lovely viewpoint with a bench looking back over the bay towards St Andrews.  But this location had much more to offer than a […]

The Rock and Spindle at Sunset

The Rock and Spindle

Following on from the dusk and dawn shoots in St Andrews itself I decided to head south along the Fife Coastal Path to have a look at the unusual rock formation called the Rock and Spindle below Kinkell Braes between St Andrews and Boarhills. I had seen the formation once before on a longer walk […]
