Turning Day into Night

Last weekend, I was watching some extras for the Tom Hanks movie Cast Away and it was showing the filming of one of the night scenes… in the day. I thought that I might see if i could try the same with a photograph. A few weeks ago I went out to take an early […]

Thetford Forest

It was the Sunday morning after the end of BST, so as I was awake anyway, I took a little drive into Thetford Forest, despite there being no fog or mist and too much low cloud for a decent sunrise. I’ve never been able to take any decent woodland photos and it’s something that I […]

Oxburgh Hall

We had a visit to Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk last weekend.  The Hall was built around 1482 by Sir Edmund Bedingfeld, and is a good example of a late medieval, inward-facing great house. It was a very windy day (30mph), and the clouds were moving quite quickly, so the first photograph that I took was an […]

Processing older photos


After uploading a few photos to Trover, I noticed a little line on my profile.  “Range”, it says referring to the distance between the photos.  A challenge!  I’ve been lucky enough to do the occasional bit of personal and work based travel around the world, so I thought I’d try to get my score up. […]

I joined Trover

After many hints from Brendan Van Son on his You Tube Channel, I joined Trover, which is a photography site with the motto “Great experiences trump just about anything you can buy in a store, and you know how to track ’em down”.  I’ve just been dumping quite a few photos on there, including some […]

Another misty morning

This morning wasn’t going to be an epic sunrise, but was nicely misty.  There’s a field of horses nearby and I thought they might make a nice photo in the mist.  So, out I headed to their field.  It was still a bit dark.  And misty.  And it’s a big field.  And so I spent quite […]

Early morning mist

It looks like we’ve skipped summer this year and gone straight from late spring into early autumn.  I checked the weather last night and it didn’t look like there would be much in the way of high cloud to get an epic sunrise so I wasn’t planning on going out.  However, I woke up at 4.45am, […]

An unplanned trip

I decided to catch the sunrise at Hunstanton Beach last week.  I’ve never been there before, so I did what planning I could using TPE, which was pretty much just determining which end of the beach to would be best to catch the sun. I left at 0430 and got to the car park a couple […]


At the end of March, we loaded up the car and went on a trip to Western Scotland for a week. After an 11 hour drive (half of which was through some amazing scenery, so it wasn’t that bad), we arrived at what was to be our home for the week at Achleek on the […]
