- Dyffryn Burial ChamberDyffryn Burial Chamber The oldest stone structure in Britain? This double burial chamber, known as a portal dolmen, is considered to be one of the earliest examples of its kind in the British Isles. Believed to date to around 3500 BC, it is one of several such sites close to the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy […]
- Barnsley Hospital Rainbow RunHi all had the marvellous privilege of being the photographer for Barnsley Hospital Charity Rainbow Run yesterday, as you can see from the images it’s not one for the faint hearted or those without a darn good washing machine!. The organisation team were brilliant and everything went off with issues, well done guys, a […]
- Llangollen ViewHappy Friday all and I thought I’d end this week with a spectacular view from midway across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, it’s a navigable aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal over the valley of the River Dee in Wrexham County. I must admit too that even though I may have been in Mountain Rescue I’m not […]
- Cei Bach Sunset SphereWonderful morning to you all, it’s nearly the weekend yippee! So busy of late and we have a new addition to the family, the family of photography that is, we are expecting our first drone to land today, DJI Inspire 1 T600 can’t wait. This is set to be a truly family affair with Jo […]
- Sunset at Cei BachHi all another from south west Wales, this time from Cei Bach, beautiful place, here’s the info Cei Bach Cei Bach (Little Bay) is just to the north of Traethgwyn at New Quay and separated by that beach by the rocky promontory of Llanina point. In the last century, there was a church on […]
- Saint Ina’s Church LlaninaSaint Ina’s Church Llanina Beautiful little church right on the beach at Llanllwchaiarn near New Quay, I have quite a few of these to post from different angles, the next having loads more blue bells. We walked from Cei Bach along the coast to this church, it’s also part of the Dylan Thomas trail walk […]
- St Catherine’s IslandAfternoon all just a quick update from my recent South Wales trip for the book shots, we had a great week and found some fantastic locations, certainly some for band shots too. I’ll post as many as I can over the coming weeks, needless to say we met some lovely people and dog lovers, […]

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,

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.
