Following in the footsteps of giants…

As my regular readers will know, I generally try to find fresh views and vistas for my photography, or at least new views of old vistas (if you get my drift). Living on the Hampshire/Dorset border, this is quite a tricky feat considering how many wonderfully photographic venues there are literally on my doorstep – […]

It’s behind you!!

It’s quite apt that I should choose this image for my next post as I’m typing in the height of pantomime season – but more of that later! While landscape photography is a solitary pursuit in the main, it’s always nice to head out for a shoot with friends. 2013 seems to have been a […]

Rain, rain, go away…

After all the recent horrid weather we’ve been experiencing in the UK, we have finally passed a milestone moment. The annual shortest day of December 21st is now behind us, and summer is well and truly on its way!! Ok, that seems quite an optimistic statement looking out the window at the quickly gathering storm […]

Time to reflect…

Time for a trip back to my favourite spot in the New Forest, Mogshade. In the run up to this image, I’d been keeping an eye on the weather forecast as we were getting in to prime temperature inversion season, and some New Forest water and mist was desired. That sentence alone makes me smile. […]

Mono Opportunities…

Now, believe it or not, this was taken on a beautiful morning, when the sun had risen through the mist, giving me lovely reflections across the pond. But, this was an hour after sunrise, the sun was above the mist, and my morning was almost done. Being one to fully investigate each photographic opportunity, I […]

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 […]

A morning’s work

People often ask about my work, and the process I go through to capture an image. This image of the rising sun at Iblsey Common is a prime example of my preferred method of working. Many landscape images you see are versions, or even attempted exact copies, of another photographer’s work. When you look into […]

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 […]
