Coniston Winter, well Spring tree

Morning all, finally made it back from Coniston, minus the van! thats stranded in a snow drift on site and we have to go back later in the week to collect again.

Apart from the obvious snow and hassles that come with it, we had a pretty productive week photography wise including a trip up The Old Man of Coniston which resulted in me walking an asthmatic back down from above the snow level, such fun….

Today’s image is of Coniston Water and a little footbridge that takes you over towards Torver from Coniston, a lovely little walk and I was lucky enough to be the first on scene with fresh snow, it does pay to be up early some days.

I had chance to try out my new gadget too while I was there and big thanks go to Mark at N E for rushing me my Hyperdrive Colorspace 1TB photographers dream backup device through, cheers mate, his site is well worth a visit and he’s a top bloke too, has almost everything you could want on it, mention me he may give you a % off.








Loads of shots to follow, will start processing them ASAP, back out in the snow shortly for a play with Stormy.


Buachaille Etive Mòr Twin Flow

Will be heading North soon for the start of my shooting season, just found this little gem unprocessed on my 8TB, I must seriously do a clean down at some stage, far too many images not even looked at…..could do wit a week or two at it.

Top session last night with Woodhead MRT, searching a missing person exercise, was freezing cold with snow flurries but you soon got warm carrying your full kit bag up through muddy woods, learnt some great search techniques too, fun with friends….what more could you want.

Just acquired a GoPro 3 Hero Black edition too, so over the next few weeks I’ll be posting some time lapse sunsets from The Lakes and North…..that is of course after I’ve sussed it out and it stops giving me such a headache.


On A Righteous Path

Llanddwyn Island off Anglesey a very spiritual place to visit and a must for photography, a right of passage shot with a twist, using my 10 stop “Big Stopper” to slow down the clouds and give this drag effect in high light. Works well don’t you think?

It was also used for filming in the movie Half Light with Demi Moore, well worth a watch.

We finally pick up the new caravan this Friday and I’ve booked for Coniston already to get some “Lakes” shots to the portfolio added, can’t wait been so long since I got away, should get some lovely walking in too.

Just finished a couple of decent commission shoots for clients, will post some shots later and I have been asked to produce a calendar for 2014 so that should be fun, better get out and get some work done then hadn’t I?


Workshops in Wales now on for April 2013 a few places left, email me for details.
