Adobe Subscription Cancelled

Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Subscription Cancelled – After being married to Adobe products since around 1998 and more recently being a loyal subscriber to the Photoshop & Lightroom CC Photography Package via monthly subscription, this morning I have finally ended the relationship and been billed by Adobe for doing it. For those of you that do not know what’s been going on at Adobe over the past month, these videos will bring you fully up to date. So this morning […]

Photography Forum

Forum now open for guest posting

Forum now open for guest posting Partly due to the forum/photography chat board being on my website, partly because of my track record with previous board I dare say, which spammers ruined, and partly because some of you may not want to register as a member of the board and because I’m getting lonely, LOL,  😂 😎 😍 I have opened the forum up to ‘guest posting’ but unlike registered members, guest posts are sent to me first before being […]

Crystall Ball Photography Nostell Priory

Nostell Priory Crystal Ball Photography

Nostell Priory Crystal Ball Photography – At last I have remembered to break out the Crystal Ball and on the warmest and sunniest day of 2019 so far. A funny story and word of warning before I start sharing images from today – Nostell Priory is a stately home with very nice gardens and grounds owned and kept by the National Trust here in West Yorkshire. Each Easter Nostell Priory holds the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt where children go around […]

Scarborough Marine Drive

Scarborough Yorkshire

Scarborough Yorkshire – Back from a nice family weekend at Scarborough in Yorkshire for Thomas’s birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Thomas, 9 yesterday 😀 As always on family weekends away and holidays, photography by morning while all are in bed and family (without the camera) by day so everyone is happy. The weather was far from ideal for photography once again but I’ve been at this long enough now to know conditions on the day are what they are, you just have […]

Old Aire Bridge Castleford

Lock Lane Castleford and the Suicide Bridge

Lock Lane Castleford and the Suicide Bridge: I got out of the car this morning a few miles from where I live and what I hoped to be blue hour followed by sunrise shots was very much not happening, I had thick mist coming off the canal and river that runs almost parallel. I love a challenge and photographing in mist certainly is a challenge, mist can make or break images for sure… The first photo opportunity I came across […]

Photography Chat Yorkshire

Photography Chat Board

Photography Chat Board – As much as leaving most social media has been a release to me I still miss photography and general chat and friends. I have tried forums on here before as some of you know, at the time ‘spam bots’ spoiled all and I did not have multi-language support on the page, times have changed and I now have the time and resources to deal with any false posts and users, I also have multi-language support as […]

Free Stock Images and maybe a Coffee?

Free Stock Images and maybe a Coffee? Can any of you remember the free stock photography page in the menu when I first launched this site, no? Well, the ‘Free Stock Images Page’ will soon be back for good. In the next couple of days I will send the stock page live again for anyone to download and use a selection of my images (with restrictions *). Most of the images at the moment are from my early photography days […]

Butterfly Photography for Beginners

Butterfly Photography for Beginners

Butterfly Photography for beginners is the title and today I was the beginner at the Butterfly House near Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. https://www.butterflyhouse.co.uk Every now and then I like going out of my landscape photography comfort zone and today was one of those days. I fancied getting hot and sweaty in the tropical house and trying my hand at some butterfly photography. On arrival in the carpark, there were 4 coach loads of small children filing out of their coach in […]

Staithes and Mallyan Spout Photography

Runswick Bay and Mallyan Spout Photography

Runswick Bay and Mallyan Spout Photography, Hey all, an early start to get to the location, 206 more miles (493 km) on the car, almost record-breaking high temperatures for February here in the UK (the record was broken yesterday) and a very good morning getting to know and get the best from the new camera. The morning started in the beautiful and mostly unspoiled Runswick Bay on the Yorkshire East Coast. Going on a Tuesday Morning is a luxury, no […]

Misty Morning Through The Window

Misty Morning Through The Window

Misty Morning Through The Window, What do you do when you are not able to get out of the house and photograph? Easy, get the camera out of the bag, put on a long lens and see what you can find on a misty morning through the window. That’s what I did this morning anyway and I’m quite happy with the results. The sun was just starting to burn through the morning mist, I thought the trees at the side […]

flamborough head Yorkshire Tim Hill

Photography around Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lancashire next week

Photography around Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lancashire next week – After having a thoroughly enjoyable morning at Flamborough (pictured) last Saturday, I am very much ready for more landscape/seascape photography regardless of weather. Yes, I lost lots of images through a menu mistake in my new camera to do with focus stacking but that is now sorted and next week I have the entire week off work dedicated to photography, I am so up-for-it! Firmly on my list so far is […]

Flamborough East yorkshire Photography

Flamborough Head Yorkshire (pictures ruined)

Flamborough Head Yorkshire – The weather yesterday was unseasonably warm and sunny for mid-February, I headed out in the car to Flamborough Head in East Yorkshire, England (UK). My photography goal yesterday was to come back with some nice Focus Stacks (Focus stacking is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focus distances to give a resulting image with a greater depth of field than any of the individual source images.) I had a great […]
