Last Week’s Shoot – Castleford Footbridge

The recent crisp wintry days have been great for a bit of “blue hour” urban photography so last week I thought I’d have a look at the amazing modern footbridge over the River Aire at Castleford.  I arrived mid afternoon with the bright winter sun already low in the sky and had a look at […]

Last Week’s Shoot – The Hepworth

After last week’s dusk shoot in Saltaire I thought another urban shoot with a nice reflection would be in order, so I waited for the brightest looking afternoon of the week and headed off to Wakefield to have a look at The Hepworth Gallery reflected in the River Calder. Arriving not far from the gallery […]

New Mill by the River Aire at Dusk Saltaire West Yorkshire England

Last Week’s Shoot – Saltaire Reflections

I chose a sunny winter afternoon for a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire near Bradford in West Yorkshire with a nice reflection of the New Mill in the River Aire at dusk in mind.  Saltaire is a model village built in 1851 by Sir Titus Salt, an industrialist in the Yorkshire […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Ribblehead in Winter

Here’s the latest in the Last Week’s Shoot series that I would have posted last week if I’d not been caught up in the Great Copyright Infringement Debacle instead!  I picked a day with a rather chilly, but sunny weather forecast – though with the lowest windspeed of the week which made walking around Ribblehead […]

The Great Copyright Infringement Debacle

I grew up in the brewing town of Tadcaster in North Yorkshire and was therefore greatly saddened by the damage to the fine old bridge over the River Wharfe caused by the recent flooding which hit the national news.  I’ve therefore been following related stories about Tadcaster quite closely recently and was pleased to see […]

Waterfall at Hull Pot and Pen Y Ghent

Last Week’s Shoot – Hull Pot

I’m now just about up to date on my image processing, so here’s another “Last Week’s Shoot” post on a visit to Hull Pot below the slopes of Pen-Y-Ghent in Ribblesdale (actually the week before last, but near enough!). From Horton-in-Ribblesdale station I walked down into the village and picked up the Pennine Way, following […]

A Woolly Walk from Wooler

After my second visit to the Simonside Hills on my summer trip to Northumberland  I wanted to get back and explore more of the National Park, this time heading further north to the village of Wooler, a good base for exploring the area around The Cheviot. I set out along the lane from Wooler through […]

Ornate Glass Roof at The County Arcade in the Victoria Quarter, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England

Last Week’s Shoot – Leeds Arcades

It’s been a while since I did any city photography in the centre of Leeds and a few things have changed so I decided to head back there with the trusty OM-D and update my collection. In the famous Victoria Quarter I wandered through the selection of lovely old arcades leading off either side of […]

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 […]
