  A trip to Portland Bill, which is situated at the tip of Dorset, for the sunset yielded mixed results.  After a dull start to the day, it had turned into a fine afternoon.  The sun was shining, but I could see a bank of cloud on the horizon towards which it was heading.  Something […]

It has taken a while to select this image of Castle Stalker at sunset as my selection for the day simply due to lack of time.  I spent a week in Glen Coe and the surrounding area, posting images as I went.  Shooting over a nine day period, which included four days travelling to and […]

After a couple of fabulous sunny days, conditions became overcast.  That can be challenging, although sunny weather when there are harsh shadows and extremes between the light and darkest parts of the scene can present its own issues.  In fact the light was excellent at the end of the day and I have several pleasing shots taken […]

Buachaille Etive Mor is the iconic mountain of the Glen Coe region and is one of the best known in Scotland.  No doubt part of its popularity is due to the grand view afforded of it from the main road which runs through the Glen Coe valley.  A tributary of the river which flows through the […]

After a few days when it had been sunny, it turned overcast.  There was no chance of the light being suitable for a wider view of the landscape, but the conditions were perfect for this waterfall.  It is Aira Force which has a fall of around 20 metres. There is a light area at the top where […]

This month’s photo walk organised by the RPS London region took place in Brixton. I went along partly because I used to work there many years ago and had not been back since. As much as anything, I wanted to see how the place had changed. Photographically, it was not as productive as the RPS […]

This is the last of the “Photo of the Day” images which I am publishing from my recent trip to Suffolk and  was taken at dawn on the final morning.  As with the Southwold Pier shot the previous day, I used a Lee 0.6 soft garduated filter to hold back the exposure for the sky. […]

Another shot from my recent photographic excursion to Suffolk, this time of Southwold Pier at dawn.  This was taken just before the sun rose above the horizon, after which the colour in the sky rapidly disappeared.  The exposure of the sky at top left was held back with a Lee 0.6 soft graduated filter.   […]

This shot was taken during a three day photography trip to Suffolk, England.  I used a Lee Big Stopper to slow the exposure to 30 seconds and blur the water. I shall be publishing a series of blog articles about the trip and will provide more details about this image in a subsequent post.   […]

My recent photography street walk with the RPS around Bethnal Green and Shoreditch produced quite a few shots with which I was pleased.  Out of the 113 exposures I made on the day, I have already published one shot as my Photo of the Day and I include a further ten in this post.  That’s […]
