Is that the time? Time to improvise!

St Catherine’s Breakwater in Jersey photographically intrigues and perplexes me. It’s a Victorian jetty about a mile long, has a lovely curving lead-in line, lots of foreground interest with the granite sets and changes in textures, interesting lampposts (as in not the boring grey metal ones you so often see) and it sits on the […]

Wait for it, wait for it…

On a recent workshop, I had a (small) Eureka moment! Henri Cartier-Bresson called it “The Decisive Moment” while Charlie Waite describes being in “the presence of some wonderful alignment of events”. To me, this particular Eureka moment (a minute or two after the image above was taken) suddenly made perfect sense of these statements and […]

New Tracks

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I try not to shoot “honey pot” images. You know, those that you regularly see on Flickr and on forums, and are actively sought out by photographers as “bucket list” locations, often shot from exactly the same angle as several thousand before them, many of whom are trying to […]

Faith – and persistence!

My wife hails from Jersey, in the Channel Islands, so we make regular trips there to catch up with family and friends. It also gives me a pretty good excuse, if I ever needed one, to take my camera and capture some of the stunning scenery on the island. La Rocco is a defensive tower […]

Sunrise, best time of the day!!

For the last eighteen months or so, I have been heavily involved in a major project for a company, so it’s been particularly pleasing to finally get out with my camera for some personal work. With a series of Landscape Photography Workshops kicking off this month, it was time to head out and double check […]

Pink Tide, La Corbiere.

Ok, this isn’t strictly a “Latest Image” as it was shot in August, but I’m rather behind with my processing after a very hectic summer, so this could be classed a “Latest Processed Image”! My in-laws live in Jersey, so we often visit the island as a family to catch up and take a break […]

Wall Of Colour

Another image from my recent wanderings around the New Forest. It was quite breathtaking watching the early morning sun creep over the horizon to light up the trees I was stood in front, and photographed here. And I still chuckle to myself as I remember the other photographers who were darting around looking for an […]

Colourful Wanderings

My usual style of photography is sweeping views, early morning light, colourful skies… However, come autumn time, and with the New Forest virtually on my doorstep, focus often changes to capturing the gorgeous colours that Mother Nature provides. Colour was in every direction, and just walking through the forest was a real pleasure, but I […]
