Bolton Abbey in Autumn

Originally posted on Natural Light Photography Workshops:
We recently wrapped up out eighth year of landscape photography workshops with a great day out at Bolton Abbey (you can read about the day in Sam’s workshop report) so we thought it would be nice to celebrate with a few extra autumnal images of the priory ruins…

Happy Yorkshire Day!

To celebrate Yorkshire Day today here are just a few images from my favourite shoots so far this year.  The featured image above is Haworth at dusk – as it’s just two days since Emily Brontë’s 200th birthday!  I’ve also picked a dusk shot from the renovated Piece Hall at Halifax, Leeds Town Hall from […]

Yorkshire Dales Workshops 2018

Our 2018 workshops season is now under way, so here’s a quick round-up of what we’ll be up to this year… This will be the eighth year of  Natural Light Workshops, which I run jointly with fellow Yorkshire photographer Sam Oakes.  We’ll be going back to old favourite locations at Malham with a great choice […]

Natural Light Workshops 2017

As we’ve now finalised the 2017 schedule for the workshops that I run jointly with fellow Yorkshire photographer Sam Oakes, under the Natural Light Photography Workshops banner, I thought I’d have a quick look at a few of my own favourite places (and times) throughout our workshop season… When we first set up the workshops […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Stainforth and Winskill

Last week’s shoot was actually a workshop recce for Natural Light Photography Workshops along with Sam Oakes and his dog Ella, a black labrador, and proved to be quite a fruitful day for waterfall images… We parked in Stainforth and walked up the old Goat Scar Lane which rises steadily up towards Catrigg Force waterfall.  […]

Yorkshire Autumn Images

I’ve just given the blog a new look with an improved layout (I hope!) and have changed the fonts and colours across the blog and the main website to make them more consistent.  With bringing the blog and website closer together in mind, I’ve also created a new blog category for Latest Work in which […]

Field Barns at Gunnerside Swaledale Yorkshire Dales England

National Parks Week – Yorkshire Dales

Today is the start of National Parks Week, an annual celebration of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes.  So, to kick off the celebrations, here’s a look at my nearest national park, the wonderful Yorkshire Dales.  A mention of the Dales immediately brings to mind dry stone walls and field barns in lush green meadows – hence […]

Malhamdale From Above

One of my favourite viewpoints in the Yorkshire Dales is just above Gordale Scar in Malhamdale which I’m lucky enough to visit every time we run a Natural Light Photography Workshop at Malham.  It’s a steep climb up from the valley floor below, but the view down into Gordale Scar (featured image) is just spectacular. […]

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 […]

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 […]
