All of the images this week come from a photo shoot over a couple of days on the coast in Northumbria. It was a wild and windy almost the whole time, with clouds scudding across the sky very quickly and the sun doing its best to emerge when it could. Amongst the sun and the clouds, … Continue reading Beach combing
In photography, you can prepare your photo trips carefully so that you know what to expect when you get to your location. Or, you can just grab your camera, a couple of lenses, some filters and perhaps your monopod and take potluck. You can get to a location not knowing exactly what to expect but … Continue reading Harbouring thoughts.
It never ceases to amaze me in this country on the variety of shots that are available in our towns. The images this month were shot on a day trip into Worcester and the three images I show here are just a sample of the various types of photographs that I obtained on that day. … Continue reading Wandering our towns.
Three more photographs this week from the Bradgate Park photo trip. This time as you can see I have processed them all as monochrome.

I have three colour photographs for you this week all based around a winter theme. The first is a leaf that I found in the garden after a frost. I loved the way that the frozen moisture coats the edges of the leaf. Tiny frozen droplets of moisture can also be seen on a … Continue reading Field and Frost
This week, I have some images to share taken during the winter. The scenes photographed are all close to my home - the leaf was actually taken in my garden. There is always a problem in photographing hard frost, snow or bright skies in that the camera will underexpose. It sets the light areas to … Continue reading White or grey?
I love the detail in this first image that I photographed in a church graveyard. But I didn’t see the humour in the notice until I started writing this blog post. Duh! I know I can be slow sometimes. I’ll need to go back and try and catch an image of the sign with the … Continue reading Field and Fence
Last post I showed three colour images that I took whilst out on a walk near my home. This week, I have another three photographs from the location but processed in black and white. The first is a landscape which shows tractor tracks disappearing into the mist across the field. I got down low with the … Continue reading Countryside Studies
As you can guess from the interval between my last post and this one, I’m a little bit behind at the moment with processing images. However I do have another here from my time in Northumbria a few weeks ago. This was taken in the harbour of the town of Seahouses where we were staying. … Continue reading Out and About: Seahouses
