Sprinkling Tarn

The main reason for the weekend trip to the Lake District was to catch sunset and sunrise at Sprinkling Tarn.  After leaving Chris at Tarn Hows, we got ourselves some breakfast/lunch, drove to Seathwaite and started walking.  There were a lot more cars there than I expected but, luckily, we managed to get parked right at […]

Tarn Hows

Last weekend, I went on a long-planned hike and camp from Seathwaite to Sprinkling Tarn with my daughter, Sophie.  The original plan was to make the trip in May/June, but for many reasons, that didn’t happen.  We have had a long and very hot summer this year, but it’s been quite cold for the past few […]

Mevagissey

Mevagissey is a small village and fishing port to the south of St Austell, Cornwall.  Tourism has taken over from fishing as the main industry in recent years, consequently, the village centre is mainly tourist shops and places to eat and the harbour is busy with a mix of pleasure vessels and working fishing boats. […]

Rinsey Cove

Rinsey cove is a small beach with some sand at low tide.  When I was there, the tide was high at sunset, so I set up my camera on some rocks.  The sky was clear of clouds, so I selected a long lens and zoomed into an area where the waves were crashing on rocks.  The […]

St Michael’s Mount

The iconic St Michael’s Mount is a small tidal island in Mount’s Bay, Cornwall, England. It is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway which is passable between mid and low tide.  I only took one photograph while I was there, which I’m not too happy with, but I think I know […]

Another windy evening at Durdle Door

The sky at Durdle Door was much less heavy the following day, but the wind was probably stronger. After getting there, I went straight to the location that I’d decided on the day before and set everything up. As the sun went down, I took a number of groups of photos, all with a 10 […]

A windy evening at Durdle Door

We headed out on holiday a couple of weeks ago.  The first few days were spent camping in Dorset, which was “interesting” due to some pretty high winds (I think over 40mph).  The first evening also had a cloudy flat sky, which I find difficult to photograph, although with some contrast adjustment it can appear […]

A brief stop in the Peak District

I had a long 400 mile drive last Sunday and stopped briefly near Crowden at the North end of the Peak District.  It’s been very hot and dry in the UK this summer and the valley below is a river which links the Torside Reservoir with the Woodhead Reservoir, both of which were very low […]

No sunset photos

Daughter is home for the weekend and after picking her up from the railway station yesterday, she asked if we could go to watch the sunset.  She lives in London, where the sun sets at about 1pm behind the tall buildings and it’s not very pretty.  We decided to go out the following evening after […]
