Happy New Year!

I’m now back in the office and looking at plans for 2019, so I thought I’d share a few images from January 2016, which seems to be the last time I had a winter trip up to Ribblehead – so perhaps that should be on the cards for this month! I’ve got a few calendars […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Snow!

Despite the wintry weather I managed to get out to take some local photographs four days in a row last week! I started on foot in Knaresborough with a few atmospheric images as the snow began to fall. On the snowiest morning, the main roads were still clear so I headed to Ripon (by bus […]

Reflected Branches and Sky

Last Week’s Shoot – River Reflections

Last Week’s Shoot – Winter Reflections

On overcast days it’s often best to head for woods and water, so on such a day last week I set myself the project of photographing reflections of winter trees in the river. There was a light breeze which kept ruffling the surface of the water so rather than a glass-like reflection the resulting images […]

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 […]

Think Snow at Knaresborough by Mark Sunderland

Thick Snow in Knaresborough

A new Christmassy Knaresborough card in Mark Denton’s range of panoramic cards – and the first one not by Mark Denton! I’m pleased to announce that my wintry image of Knareborough Viaduct and the River Nidd from the Castle Top is now available in Mark Denton’s range of panoramic greetings cards as card no. 227 […]
