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 […]

I finally bought a prime lens

I decided to buy a 35mm prime lens (Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX).  My existing lenses are: Tokina ATX 116 PRO DX AF11-16mm F/2.8 Nikon AF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED DX VR II The Nikon is a bit soft, which may be due to a fall it had a few years ago and I never got […]

Drone shots

I got a new tiny drone today.  My “old” drone is nice, but too big to take on walks if I take my camera as well.  This one’s small enough to fit in the camera bag.  In an attempt to either tempt fate or get over my fear of flying it, I took a walk […]


The bluebells are out and I’m lucky enough to live near a few places where they can be found.  The first is quite a wild patch of woodland and the sort of place that I find very beautiful to walk through, but it’s very difficult to get photographs because it’s quite cluttered.  However, it’s good […]

It’s my tent now

I’m planning a quick trip to the Lake District later in the year to photograph something that’s a bit less flat, so as the weather’s nice I thought it would be a good idea to check out the tent.  As soon as I got it up, somebody claimed it…


A few days ago we got the first snow in this area in a couple of years.  As the snow doesn’t often last long enough in England to be a major concern, when it happens we are totally unprepared for it (I guess it’s cheaper to have people not show up for work for a […]

More Thetford Forest…

It was nice and misty this morning so I headed out to Thetford Forest in the hope of getting the nice moody misty shots that I’ve been wanting to get for a while now.  However, it turns out that it wasn’t very misty in the forest; just at home.  I got this one of a […]
