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.

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.

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 […]
