A Walk Around Ribblehead

I’m progressing steadily with the processing backlog and am looking at images from a couple of trips to Ribblehead in the rugged three peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales at the moment.  It’s a great place to explore by train, with Ribblehead station being just a short walk from the impressive Victorian viaduct striding across […]

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 […]

St Salvators University Chapel

Travel Postcard – A Wander Around St Andrews

On the last day of my visit to St Andrews last month I’d done a sunrise shoot with glorious light, had breakfast and packed ready for the journey home, but my train wasn’t until later in the afternoon, so I had the time for a wander around the town with my OM-D for a few […]

The Scallop Sculpture on Aldeburgh Beach

Travel Postcard – Aldeburgh and Thorpeness

Well, I’ve caught up on all the post-processing and it’s the last week before the Christmas break so I thought now would be as good a time as any to post a belated Travel Postcard from my summer holiday in Suffolk! We were based in Aldeburgh on the lovely Suffolk coast and for our first […]

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 […]

Pier at St Andrews Harbour before Dawn

St Andrews at Dusk and Dawn

The weather was far from ideal during my recent trip to St Andrews, but there was still some great photography to be had at dusk and dawn.  Here are a few images from the first couple of days of my visit. I headed out to the rocks at the end of West Sands, Doo Craigs, […]

Piazza San Carlo as the Floodlights Come On at Dusk, Turin

Travel Postcard – From Genoa to Turin

After a light breakfast at the Hotel Soana I set out to explore a bit more of Genoa at a more leisurely pace than the previous day’s wanderings in the old town.  I strolled to the north of the Old Town and found the lift up to the panoramic viewpoint over the city at Castelletto, […]

Piazza Banchi in the Old Town, Genoa

Travel Postcard – Exploring the Old Town in Genoa

After my relaxing day in Riomaggiore I was up for an early breakfast and then checked out and headed into La Spezia for a quick wander down to the waterfront before catching the FrecciaBianca train up to Genoa. My hotel was the comfortable Soana, an easy walk from Brignole station and occupying the fourth floor […]

Riomaggiore Harbour at Dusk

Travel Postcard – Relaxing in Riomaggiore

I looked out over the rooftops to another bright and sunny day in Riomaggiore.  It was, however, somewhat windier than the previous few days and down at the harbour the boat booking office was closed with a notice saying that shipping was suspended due to the weather, so it was as well I had done […]
