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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Nostell Priory – https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/nostell Out walking in the winter sunshine this morning with the family, it was -6C (21F) overnight so the air was fresh and bracing!

Valley of Desolation

The Valley of Desolation was so-called after the great storm of 1826 which whipped across North Yorkshire, felling trees and taking out much of the area’s plant life. However, Yorkshire’s flora and fauna are made of stern stuff and while it took a while, the natural foliage did eventually return. Read more at: yorkshirepost.co.uk This tranquil valley links the River Wharfe corridor to Barden Fell and part of one of the quieter walks, thanks to terrain and mud, from Bolton […]

Photographs and a video taken in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

Be wise when it comes to backing up your images and footage and it will last a lifetime… […]

Photography in Malham, North Yorkshire

I did a photo walk yesterday in Malham, North Yorkshire. The walk started and ended in Malham village. It rained most of the day, but we don’t let things like that worry us! The first photo stop on the walk was the beautiful Janet’s Foss. I waded across the stream/river to get to this spot but had very little room to manoeuvre and was stood in water. Due to the rain the river was rising but I made a mark […]
