The last time I posted, I hinted that my photography would be changing and I would be trying something different to “improve my photography to make it more satisfying and fulfilling”. Well, I hope you’ll be pleased to know I feel I’ve made some progress. Continue reading
It’s hard to believe that almost 10 months have passed since I last put pen to paper (so to speak), but it is and here I am near the end of another year – another year older and, like many others, I wonder where the time has gone. Sadly, like the others. I don’t have a proper answer.
This is my first post in quite a while – but I hope you think the wait was worth it.
On 22 January I headed out with a good friend from RPS NW in search of some Yorkshire Waterfalls.
Our first stop was at Scaleber Force, near Settle Continue reading
It doesn’t seem like more than 3 years ago – but it is. On 25 February 2013, I visited St. Annes and then Lytham. The day was very cold and very dull and the results were generally in keeping with this. Having said that, the day did have its moments. I have already posted about an image of Lytham Windmill taken on that day, which I rather like (hence the post, I suppose). Continue reading
On 23 April I ventured over to Yorkshire towards Reeth in Swaledale to photograph Crackpot Falls. I’d previously tried to photograph them last August but, although I got quite close to them, I didn’t actually manage to find them and returned home unfulfilled.

On 20 March 2015, I grabbed (yes, that’s what happened – you sometimes have to work quickly to take the opportunity when it comes along) a few images from my back garden during the eclipse. I was quite happy with the muted colours and a bit of drama in the colour images (see earlier post) but now I’ve edited one as a monochrome image which I feel is much more pleasing. Continue reading
The eclipse yesterday morning from my back garden: Continue reading
FURTHER to my previous post, I have always had in my mind that my image of the Pigeon Tower at Rivington would look good in monochrome. However, until the last week or so, I haven’t been motivated to give it the time needed to convert it to a monochrome image.
HERE is the result of my efforts – I hope you like it. Continue reading
A framed version of this image has been hanging on my wall for some time now – proof, if you need it, of how much I like it. It may be something of a chocolate box image but for me it has enduring appeal which shows no sign of diminishing. Continue reading
