Last Week’s Shoot – Skipton Woods

This was actually a walk on my day off after our final workshop of the season at Bolton Abbey.  The colours in Strid Wood had been fantastic during the workshop, so a look at nearby Skipton Castle Woods was in order – and as this was a day off I just grabbed the trusty little […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Birk Crag

I have wandered through the Pine Woods at Harrogate a number of times on visits to Harlow Carr gardens but have never explored the woods at nearby Birk Crag, so with the autumn colours coming to their peak I picked a nice still overcast day last week to explore… There is an area of woodland […]

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 […]
