Footpath Along Lathkill Dale

A walk down Lathkill Dale is a beautiful experience any time of year, watching the ducks diving and the brown trout swimming. The river Lathkill appears from it’s underground route just before Over Haddon, years of lead mining in the area has been responsible for changes to the water table and the flow of the […]

Cromer Pier Norfolk

There has been a pier or jetty in Cromer since 1391. The present one, dating from 1901, was finally built after the previous wooden structure had been dismantled after heavy storm damage many year earlier. The modern entrance to the pier has steps formed by long, sweeping curves complimented by straight lines in the paving. The original […]

By the Harbour at Sennen Cove in Cornwall

For as small as it is, Sennen Cove is a must visit place when you’re visiting the west of Cornwall. The lifeboat launch from there is amazing. This painting is of the coastline just to the west of the harbour wall and is a great vantage point when the tide is coming in. This image […]

Snowy Path in Derbyshire

A winter’s view along the footpath at the south end of Ladybower Reservoir near Bamford in Derbyshire. The bleak wooded area in the distance provides cover on the long climb up to the vantage point of Win Hill. This image was taken on 12th January 2010 with a Nikon D90 fitted with a Nikon VR […]

Edensor Village in Derbyshire

Edensor (pronounced as “Enzor”) Village remains one of the most unspoiled villages in the UK. St Peters Church dominates the village of Edensor. It was built in 1870 on the site of the old church, with parts of the old church incorporated into it. The archirect was Sir George Gilbert Scott. My digital painting was […]

Chatsworth House and the River Derwent

This is one of my favourite views of Chatsworth House, taken from Queen Mary’s Bower Bridge and looking down the River Derwent. Chatsworth House is the seat of the Duke of Devonshire and has been home to his family, the Cavendish family, since Bess of Hardwick settled at Chatsworth in 1549. This image was taken […]

Clumber Bridge over the Lake at Clumber Park

This view really jumped out at me as I walked around the lake at Clumber Park today. Taken by the side of a small weir, the bridge provides a great focal point. Clumber Bridge was the original approach to Clumber Park prior to the development of the famous lime tree avenue. It was built in the […]

St. Michael’s Mount from Marazion

I have always been captivated by the view across to St. Michael’s Mount from Marazion, since I first drove through there about 20 years ago. I must add that the place has hardly changed in the years in between. This image was developed with 3 separate exposure shots, transformed with hdr software and finally post-processed […]

St. Mawes in Cornwall

My digital painting of the pretty village of St. Mawes, looking out over the River Fal towards Falmouth. This old fishing port boasts steep and narrow streets rising from the harbour. The best way to get here is by ferry from Falmouth, a short 20 minute trip and you arrive in the quaint harbour of […]

Robin Hood’s Bay

The lower part of Robin Hood’s Bay is a quaint, old village, with the cottages and houses built very close to each other. The alleyways and roads are twisting and narrow and there still remains an active, local population who live and work here. This image is a 3 exposure HDR transformation, taken with a […]

View over Whitby from Church Stairs

This is a world famous view over Whitby, taken from the 199 steps known as Church Stairs, that lead steeply, to St. Mary’s Church on the way to Whitby Abbey. You can even see the curvature of the earth when viewing the horizon. This image was taken on 18th March 2010 with a Nikon D90 […]

Summer in Lower Lathkill Dale Derbyshire

Lathkill Dale is one of my favourite places in the White Peak of Derbyshire. The walk down from Monyash to Alport is always a pleasure and has many points of interest along the way. This image was taken on 29th June 2010 with a Nikon D90 and Nikon VR 18-200 zoom lens. The focal length […]

Thornseat Moor above Strines Reservoir

I love the wilderness feel to this area around the Strines Reservoir near Sheffield. I took this image on 11th May 2010 having just visited Boot’s Folly. The image is a 3 exposure composition post-processed with Photoshop CS5. It was taken with a Nikon D90 fitted with a Nikon VR 18-200 zoom lens at a […]

39 Steps at Flamborough Head Lighthouse

Click image to enlarge I have taken a small poetic liberty with the title as there are far more than 39 steps on the climb up from the beach. This image was taken on 17th March 2010 with a Nikon D90 fitted with a Nikon VR 18-105 zoom lens at a focal length of 18mm. […]

Afternoon Sun at Spurn Head

This image was created from 3 separate exposures to extract as much detail from the scene as possible. The coastline here is a photographer’s dream; wide, dramatic skies and miles of beach and sand dunes while remaining relatively free from people to hinder your shots. The technical details: This image was taken on 28th October […]

Kynance Cove

This is probably my favourite location in Cornwall. Kynance Cove is very picturesque and is important historically and geologically. To experience Kynance at its best, it is best to arrive at the car park about 3 hours before low tide. There is then a half mile or so descent down to the beach with several […]

Basingstoke Canal at Odiham

The Basingstoke Canal runs for 32 miles, from Greywell Village in Hampshire to Woodham in Surrey. The canal is quite wide here to accommodate access to a small boat hire company. This image was taken in Odiham, Hampshire on 15th May 2010 with my Nikon D90 and Nikon VR 18-200mm zoom lens at a focal length […]

Youlgrave from Bradford Dale

Youlgrave, or Youlgreave, is a bustling, ridgetop village between Bradford and Lathkill Dale set in the White Peak are of Derbyshire. It is known as “Pommy” to the locals. The village spills downhill to the Bradford to the south in a topsy-turvy fashion. The river is often dry here in summer, having found an underground […]

Rowing Boats on the Meare at Thorpeness

On the warmest day of Spring 2012, I was lucky enough to be touring around Norfolk and Suffolk when I found this amazing coastal village, Thorpeness. The rowing boats were doing good business for so early in the season and I was pleased to find such colour. This image was taken with a Nikon D90 […]

Low Tide at St. Ives 2

This is the second image from a series of shots I took at St. Ives in Cornwall in July 2010. The dull day’s tend to reduce the impact of multiple exposure shots and so I always prefer to post-process directly with Photoshop CS5. The equipment and settings were, surprisingly, the same as for the first […]

Low Tide at St. Ives 1

This image was taken at low tide in the harbour at St. Ives in Cornwall on 13th July 2010. The sky was dramatic as rain was always threatening as I walked along the sandy bottom of the harbour. Taken with a Nikon D90 fitted with a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8G wide-angle zoom lens at a focal […]

Durgan on the Helford River, Cornwall

I love it when a new viewpoint appears from nowhere. On a visit to the National Trust’s Glendurgan Garden in Cornwall, I found this little gem at the end of the garden path. The image was taken on July 17th 2010 with my Nikon D90 and Tokina 11-16mm f2.8G, wide-angle zoom lens using an 11mm […]

St Michael’s Mount Harbour, Marazion, Cornwall

I just love visiting St. Michael’s Mount when I’m visiting Cornwall. The village of Marazion is host to great food and beaches as well as providing access to St. Michael’s Mount. In my opinion it is one of the most photogenic locations in Britain. This image has been processed in several passes to heavily accentuate […]
