Last Week’s Shoot – Birmingham

Last week’s shoot was actually a break in the journey back from Bath where I’d been to a friend’s 50th birthday party.  There’s a lot of great architecture in the city centre and with just four hours I was scratching the surface really, so I had to be quite selective – and it was mainly […]

Simonside Hill and Heather Moorland in Summer near Rothbury Northumberland England

Simonside Hills Revisited

I really enjoyed the walk over the Simonside Hills from Rothbury earlier in the summer, and had noted at the time that the heather would look great in August, so on my return to Northumberland for a week’s holiday at the end of August I made a point of doing the walk again. This time […]

Simonside from Dove Crag in the Simonside Hills near Rothbury Northumberland England

Last Week’s Shoot – Simonside Hills

As predicted, I’ve still been working through the backlog of images from my recent visit to Northumberland this week, so this week’s Last Week’s Shoot is actually a Last Month’s Shoot!  This was probably the highlight of the trip – a walk from Rothbury over the Simonside Hills and back. I headed out of Rothbury […]

Amble Harbour Entrance and Coquet Estuary at Dusk

Last Week’s Shoot – Amble Harbour

I had a few days in Northumberland last week, and the week before, taking in Amble by the Sea, Alnwick and the lovely Simonside Hills near Rothbury, and I think there may need to be some upcoming “Last Month’s Shoot” posts as I’m only just  getting round to processing the images!  However, I’ve done a […]

Twigs against a Tree and Bluebells in Middleton Woods

Last Week’s Shoot – Middleton Woods

Last week I had a visit to a favourite haunt for bluebell photography – Middleton Woods near Ilkley in West Yorkshire.  Despite being midweek the woods were quite busy with walkers and photographers enjoying the scenery – and it was easy to see why as the crop of bluebells was spectacular this year! I started […]

Spring Foliage and Doorway with Coat of Arms in the Courtyard at The Kings Manor, University of York, Exhibition Square, York

Last Week’s Shoot – York in Spring

I managed to fit in a trip to York with the OM-D last week.  It’s a place I’ve photographed many times and I was just looking for a few fresh spring images, so I was surprised to come home with so many new images, including subjects I’d never even seen before! I arrived at the […]

Reflected Branches and Sky

Last Week’s Shoot – River Reflections

Last week I had another walk along part of the River Nidd that I haven’t explored with a camera for a while. The forecast had been for overcast weather, but the sky was blue when I left so I wasn’t sure how well reflections in the river would work… By the time I got to […]

Castle Ruin and Winter Trees

Last Week’s Shoot – Knaresborough

Here’s the first post in what I hope will be a regular Last Week’s Shoot feature – just a quick post with some recent images and maybe the story behind them or some other verbiage depending on what seems appropriate at the time! This time it’s my first shoot of 2015, having spent the first […]

Lone Tree at Sunset above Conistone

Lone Tree at Sunset

I’ve just had another look at this image from from a few years back and was quite pleased with the result and decided to add it to my collection on Fine Art America, so I just thought I’d share the story behind it on here… I’d been looking to get a nice lone tree with […]
