- Annie Jane Monument – VatersayHappy Friday all Sun is shining and the skies are blue, what more could you ask for…apart from the usual more money less work etc etc Today’s image is of the monument on Vatersay which is linked by a causeway to Barra Island Outer Hebrides. The monument is one of the saddest events to befall […]
- Our Lady of The IslesMorning all raining cats and dogs here again and it looks like it’s set in for the week! British summer at its best hey? Today’s image is Our Lady of the Isles, a sculpture of the Virgin Mary, on South Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. The statue is situated on the western […]
- The Italian Chapel – Lamb HolmThe Italian Chapel – Lamb Holm This small but very ornate Catholic Chapel was built on the small uninhabited island of Lamb Holm on Orkney during World War II by Italian prisoners. It was restored during the 60’s and received Listed building status A. In my usual style of “must get the shot” I sneaked […]
- Vatersay Pebble Beach StumpFriday woohooooo!!!!! Thought I’d finish the week off with a beautiful shot from Vatersay Beach on Barra Island, Outer Hebrides. Probably one of the most beautiful of all the islands areas Vatersay has white sands, stunning pebble beaches and green blue seas all round it, I couldn’t resist the sea washed stump, I’d have brought […]
- Duncansby Stacks pt2Duncansby Stacks great for birdwatchers with kittiewake, guiliemots and razorbills to name but a few, take your hat in May and June you may get pecked or pooped on…..we avoided it but saw a couple getting dive bombed as they were close to the nesting edges. A prehistoric looking place thats a definite on your […]
- EOLAIGEARRAIDH (ST. BARR) OLD CHURCHYARD, ISLE OF BARRAEOLAIGEARRAIDH (ST. BARR) OLD CHURCHYARD, ISLE OF BARRA A beautiful evening on the even more beautiful Isle of Barra. The commonwealth cemetery is at the north of the island and is accessed from the main road then through a field down towards the beach. It’s uncertain as to who owns the land but from what […]
- Clachan Sands SunsetTraigh Hornais, Clachan Sands A straightforward walk along a beautiful wide sandy beach backed by Machair which is a riot of colourful flowers. Was really tricky to find this place and a lucky spot from the main road which says Cemetery & Beach. Pretty hazardous drive down a dirt single track heavily pot holed. The […]
- Beautiful BarraAs the title suggest the Isle of Barra surely is the most beautiful of the Outer Hebrides, blue seas and white sandy beaches that go on for miles and as long as you get the weather then it’s as close to paradise as you’ll get. If its beautiful scenery and peace and quiet you need […]
- Old Man of HoyHi All finally got 30 mins to do a little processing of my Outer Hebrides and Orkney shoot from a couple of weeks ago, even with all the rain I managed several decent groups of shots so I’m quite pleased with myself. We have also booked for Ireland, I have so far identified 24 […]
- Duncansby StacksHi all well we’re back from the Outer Hebrides, eventful is the keyword here, 7 absolute soaking sheeting down sideways torrential downpours of rain out of 9, you get the idea. Anyway We managed to get as many shoots in as possible then turned tail for home driving 506miles on the last day, I’m […]

Up at 5 am out with the husky gang for a walk, lovely frosty morning, white over, perfect for my commission I thought, so back home kit is ready and waiting (good boy scout) so I just have to get ready drop Jo off at work and me and the Stormster are away to start the Christmas Card shoot.
When I get there at Bagger Woods it’s closed for logging and the gates to the car park are padlocked shut!!!, to top it all the -3c at home white over isn’t at Bagger Woods it’s +1 and muddy……..never mind there’s always tomorrow but later I’m going to check out another woods so I don’t fall for it again. Hopefully we’ll get the freezing temps for a while yet.
Today’s summer evening shot is from my fave place on Anglesey, Poth Y Post, very spiritual place and if I could buy it I would.
And I do mean rock literally, Porth Y Post is just one of those place that keep pulling me back there time and again, not only because of the stunning coastline, secluded cove and generally gorgeous weather but to see a friendly seal that seems to wait for our visits, he/she pops their head up and inquisitively watches us as we shoot the setting sun then majestically disappears beneath the waves into the darkness.
Don’t know if I mentioned that over the last few months I have had many tests carried out at the hospital some not very pleasant at all, well all is good as far as they can tell. My shoulder is almost back to full strength and Saturday I had a Platelet-rich plasma injection into my knee, semi put to sleep it still hurt like holey hell but fingers crossed it will now see me back on the hills very soon. It already seems to have taken affect in that the old going up stairs pain I used to get has disappeared, I have been training it ‘carefully’ lately which helps I’m told.
Darn this weather too, can’t believe its winter it’s so warm out, I need a few good frosty snowy days to do the Christmas Card shots for my commission. Hopefully we’ll see some over the next month or so.
As from today it’s one month to my BIPP assessment for my Fellowship, ‘, checking and double checking my prints and supporting material to make sure 200% I’ve done all I possibly can. I’m also looking into doing my BA Hons over the next year or so too, my mum was a BA in Art so it would be great to have done something similar to her for a fitting memory and to help my career further too.
Jo’s new phone is coming today so I have the pleasure of setting it up for her, should be fun as it never seems to work right for me………much head banging and scratching of butt!
have a lovely week all
what a week of running round to get everything together for my Fellowship, checked and triple checked it’s now on its way to BIPP HQ a full week or so of the deadline for submission….I’m taking no chances with the weather and deliveries. It’s in the lap of the Gods as they say now, everything crossed.
Today’s picture from Porth Y Post, Anglesey. I’ll be heading there real soon, we deserve a rest and I certainly need to be in the sea again, puppies and Stormy need to run on a beach too so if only for them we’ll get off in a week or so.
Just been asked to do all this years event shoots for Barnsley Hospice which I have graciously accepted. They took great care of Richard my brother in law in his latter stages and battle with cancer so I can never really do enough for them.
Have a great weekend all

Hey hey its Friday…..at long last. Been quite a week and we’re really looking forward to a weekend of decorating, OK we’re not but it needs doing and the painting fairies seemed to have deserted us, wait til we catch em, little so and so’s.
So that’s our weekend sorted, is anyone up to anything better?, figure that will be everyone reading this.
Today’s image is from Anglesey, where else! and is of St Cywfans Church, a beautiful secluded bay that never seems to disappoint. Becoming a fave place of our to wind down after a hard day walking the pups, especially lovely to see the sun go down and calm seas.
wishing you all a lovely weekend, unfortunately Monday will be here all too soon
One from a few weeks ago, shot on Anglesey with the wild horses.
The title is taken from and pays homage to the shoot I did with Ten and their forthcoming mega album Albion, just so happens the last track is called Wild Horses, seems fate has a large paw in pitching my work and their wonderful music together, have to say I’m excited about hearing the new album soon, release date 21st November.
You can find out all about the group on their official website PRESS HERE may even be a couple of my pictures on there too for their promo work. Great vid of Gunrunning, well worth a listen.
Still sorting Christmas cards out at the moment, hopefully have them all finalised by the end of the week.
nearly the weekend and I have a few shoots to complete for Monday, one in the Peaks so I’m pleased with that as it’s been quite a while, I may well take Stormy with me especially as she’s having a makeover on Saturday afternoon courtesy of Elite Dog Grooming, can’t to see the fluff ball as she’s been blowing her coat for the last month and driving us mad with wooly fur everywhere, 3rd hoover this year, nothing lasts with a husky!
Another shot from Llanddwyn Island, this time using my Lee Big Stopper filter to gain some cloud drag, shot was midday so it would only allow 30secs at f/22, worked quite well though didn’t it.
and after a night of rain it’s beautifully sunny, blue skies, wonderful to wake up to and take the gang out for a walk.
Today’s image is one thats taken me quite a while to capture, waiting for all the elements to come into line, dark skies, dry yet humid for haze, and that RED moon was the icing on the cake, wonderful, just couldn’t believe my luck, helped by Dave with the torch and smoke machine, impossible without his help.
Barclodiad Y Gawres – History
Barclodiad Y Gawres burial chamber is a restored chambered cairn, and dates from 3000BC. It is the largest of the chambered tombs of Wales. It is dramatically situated on a headland to the north of Porth Trecastell (Cable Bay) on the west coast of Anglesey. The site has been extensively restored with a new stone wall supporting a concrete roof covered in turf.
The name translates into English as the Giantess’s Apronful.
