There are some places which I visit regularly, not because of their photographic potential but simply because I enjoy being there.  One such place is the Swannery at Abbotsbury.  It is situated at the end of the Fleet, a lagoon which lies behind Chesil Beach.  Usually swans are very territorial and do not nest in […]

Yes, the blog has been a bit quiet recently.  There have been plenty of good intentions to write something.  Ideas mulled, even articles started, yet never coming to fruition.  Maybe inspiration was not quite there or, as has more often been the case, life intervenes.*  Luckily my livelihood does not depend on posting regular updates […]

The phone rang.  It was a friend who is also a keen photographer.  “What are you doing?”, she asked.  As it happens, I was in the middle of editing this image.  I had just completed the adjustments in Lightroom and was about to convert it to monochrome using Silver Efex Pro 2.  When I said […]

Brooklands Museum is somewhere I have wanted to visit for a while, so I took the opportunity when a fellow member of my camera club suggested a trip there.  The occasion was its annual Double Twelve Motorsport Festival on 17 June.  If I am honest, I was not entirely sure what that involved, but it […]

Warning: NSFW.  This post contains nudity It is usually my custom to place the main image of my “Photo of the Day” articles at the head of the post, with any supporting images following.  For this post, I have instead put it at the end.  The reason is simple.  It shows people who are naked […]

This is the first of two posts of my images from the Chelsea Flower Show.  I have already posted my main photo of the day, but I took many more.  Once again it was a good event, although overall I did feel that it did not quite match previous years.  A number of regular sponsors […]

When starting this blog just over a year ago, I was not entirely sure what I would write about.  My only idea was to do pieces on anything which came to mind and see how I progressed.  As anyone who has been following me for the last few months will observe, my main interest lies […]

Ely was close to the route home from Norfolk, so I took the opportunity to stop off there.  It is somewhere I have long wanted to visit.  The cathedral is the tallest building in the area, dominating the city and its surroundings.  It is from this visibility that it derives its nickname, “Ship of the […]

If you had asked me where I expected to get my favourite image during my camera club’s long weekend in Norfolk, I would have said How Hill.  The River Ant, which is the location of this photo, flows past and is a scenic spot.  We had visited the previous day and opted to return for […]
