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 – 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
