2017 Retrospective

"Retrospective" - some people get hung up on the word, its almost as if the best is behind them.  That's not stopped Michael Kenna from having at least three and given how prolific he is, I'm sure there is another one in the works.  (Rush has also done two...

A Year in Photobooks

I had thought that I hadn't bought that many photography books this year (2017), but on checking it appears that I have!  To that end I've done a (very) small review of some of the books I've bought over the course of 2017 - I'm in no way a skilled...

Winter in the Peak District

Last weekend in the Peak District, there was what has become an increasingly rare thing in the UK (at least on the lower levels) - snow in December.  Snow for me has that great effect of extenuating the features of the land, particularly low lying features...

Autumn in the Western Isles

Having not been able to visit the islands of North and South Uist in the summer, I had vowed that I would go in the autumn to make up for that.  The Uists are my favourite islands of the Outer Hebrides (or Western Isles), as they are the least populated and don't have...

Over Owler Tor, Peak District

I consider myself very lucky to find myself living on the edge of the Peak District, combining a love for exploring the land and photography I try my best to capture some of the beauty the Peak District has to offer.  I had to chance to venture out in to...

In Montenegro

I went on holiday a couple of weeks ago to the lovely walled town of Kotor in Montenegro.  Whilst photography wasn't the objective, I did manage to take a couple of shots, mainly of flowers that pleased me.   Please have a browse of the gallery below and let me know...

For the love of X

I own a wonderful camera, but I don't use it nearly as often as I should.  This neglected  camera is a Hasslebald XPan panoramic film camera, users of new Fuji X's will see where their camera takes its style inspiration from.  It shoots 35mm film, but whilst the neg...
