- Elgol – Hop Skip And A JumpFEEL FREE TO SHARE Black Friday!!!!! fffttt Its a wonderful bright and glorious day, the weekend begins, OK so its raining and miserable here in Barnsley but who cares, some days you just got to thank your lucky stars. Finally managed to sort out the new lighting system and sponsorship so orders going in […]
- Elgol SunsetFEEL FREE TO SHARE To say we only spent a few short hours at Elgol I certainly reaped a great crop of images, saying that it will be a long time before we return such is the drive. Sunset skies over the Cuillins certainly drive home the intensity of the scars down the distant mountains. […]
- Elgol GoPLEASE SHARE Morning all Wet and windy Wednesday here in Yorkshire….so I thought a nice wet and windy shot from Skye would be in order. This one from Elgol looking across to the Cuillin range, Elgol is on the shores of Loch Scavaig towards the end of the Strathaird peninsula. This was the scene of […]
- Old Man of Storr SunriseWalking up to The Old Man of Storr on the beautiful Isle of Skye I had to take my now usual “fat boy” stop to catch my breath and as I turned to look back this is the view I was greeted with. Very Gothic in its appearance The Storr forms an imposing feature overlooking […]
- Elgol Sunset SwirlPLEASE SHARE Happy Monday all, sun is shining and what a sunrise it was, pity I went to the gym after pooch walking otherwise I’d have been in The Peaks for a toggging session, yes I said Togging! thats before Pon says anything. Another from Skye, Elgol looking across to The Cuillins as the […]
- The Quiraing pt2PLEASE SHARE Well it’s Friday at least and i thought I’d round the week off with pt2 of The Quiraing. After a brief drive from Uig we were greeted with the Quiraing bathed in this beautiful morning light, after making a right turn from the main road and passing the cemetery there is a car […]
- The Quiraing pt1 – or Middle Earth!PLEASE SHARE The Quiraing – various pronunciations, non better than a local but I couldn’t understand anything then it’s a little like Kerrang you know the rock music channel/mag. On our second morning we were heading from our overnight camp at Uig on the West coast of Skye across to Climb the Old Man of […]
- Neist Point – The most Westerly point on the Isle of Skye, Moonen Bay to Waterstein HeadPLEASE SHARE Todays image still from Skye is a classic view of Neist Point, definitely stood in tripod holes from other photographers and I make no excuses for this as 2″ in front of me was a few hundred feet drop onto the rocks below. But as the book is based on classic UK shots […]
- Fairy PoolPLEASE SHARE Second shot of the Skye series, the wondrous Fairy Pools with their beautiful tinted waters, gentle cascading falls and other worldly backdrop……. Hmmm what they fail to tell you is that they are darn near impossible to find, getting their would entail getting absolutely soaked battling gale force winds and sleet like rain […]
- Elgol To The CuillinsPLEASE SHARE Morning all had a very busy and eventful weekend away on the Isle of Skye doing the book shoot North West start. Chris and myself set off at 2am Friday and drove the 450miles northwards, fast forward 9 hours and we were at our first stop, this being the Fairy Pools (picture to […]

Monthly Archives: February 2011
Just had a great weekend away at Clumber Park in the caravan, weather didn’t play too fair but we still had a fantastic walk or two, Stormy loved it, in and out of the forrest muddy up to the top of her legs, she didn’t enjoy the hose pipe wash she got back at the campsite, bless her. I always feel guilty bringing her home as she never gets 4 hour walks like that here, saying that we are starting with the photography training business this week and she’s coming with me to do the photo work and area check of Mam Tor tomorrow so she’ll like that.
cant help but love that face, can you?
Well Blog 5 is up on The Peak District Online Site, must say I am very pleased with these shots, they do look great together, hope you like them too and let me know what you think of the article,
Full article HERE
Just how lucky are some people, this shot is of Rhoscolyn, Anglesey, to my back is White Arch (Bwa Gwyn) and Black Arch (Bwa Du), this house looks out to see and has the most spectacular of views, the weather was terrible this day with heavy rain and sludgy ground, not the best to be balancing off the end of a cliff !!, also the road to it is single track with swamp land either side for about a mile, not one for walking home after a night out for sure. Its on my list to do again this year when we head back that way for my next magazine article. There is a beautiful 5 mile walk along to coast that we intend to do now Stormy is a little more grown up and able…
hope you like it
Shot taken standing on Carl Wark, iron age hill fortress in The Peaks, love the way the snow clings to the stones as heavy storm clouds loom in from the distant Peaks
New blog going up later for Peak District Online, will post here as well
A big thank you to Rachel from Bristol, she is the 1st to buy from my new e-commerce site, and she picked one of my favourites, Over Owler Millstone In The Peaks, a very wintry shot freezing cold and in the distance you can see the snow falling as the sun shines through the clouds. Many Thanks
Final part of the Turners sky series, thought it best to stop on 3 for a change instead of my usual 4….OCD kicking in maybe!
my favourite of the 3 as the sun was just about up casting its amber glow and a hint of a sunburst trying to break through the mist, crisp snow still clings to the rocks, think its gone now, will check later.
got some more good news, check back later will let you know then…..ooohhhh
Morning all, a brief update on whats happening at the moment, the website is now finished and accepting online sales through Pay pal, all shots are available in different sizes, if you need a special size please email me and I’ll be able to arrange for you. All current sizes on the web will be signed and dedications are available, again let me know what you would like.
Todays shot is part 2 of Fire and Ice – Turners Sky up on Curbar Edge in the snow with the hazy warmth of the sunrise breaking through.
Started making the image in the post larger, what do you think, will this work better?
Winter is still with us and as this shot shows we get some dramatic skies at sunrise in The Peaks, even though it was burning through I was freezing cold and stood in a foot of snow, A big mug of Bovril sorted it out.
Thank god for Bovril…..
I’m not sponsoring Bovril before you say anything!, I just like Bovril, did I say it warms you right through especially with pepper in it, 2 shakes of course.
Have a great weekend all, and don’t forget the Bovril

One to accompany yesterdays shot, same shoot up on Higger Tor in The Peaks, freezing cold with a mist inversion cloaking the valley and trees below while the sun tried its best to burn through.

Sunrise and Rocks……One from Higger Tor in The Peak district, beautiful misty sunrise and detailed foreground, was freezing cold too, shot with a full square .6ND and .9 soft ND grad filter. Had to keep wiping the freezing mist off, hell of cleanup job as the lens gives out a little heat and mists up straight away.
