Shipton Down at Dusk 1

Dusk on Shipton Down – Took Sparky for a walk up to the top of the hill yesterday – I had my camera but was about 20 minutes too late to see the sunset. I was still able to get some shots with dramatic colour, however – It would have been better with a tripod but…

Thames At Sunrise

The Thames at Sunrise – and the coldest so far this year!  It was -7ºC this morning when I was driving to the station – I doubt it had changed much from that by the time I got here by the side of the River Thames near Reading, Berkshire. Another superb sunrise and a little…

St Mary’s Church, Shipton-under-Wychwood

A view of St Mary’s Church, Shipton-under-Wychwood, above the tree tops – taken a few weeks ago in the late afternoon while returning from a walk with Sparky, our (large) golden Lab-Retriever. A beautiful, late afternoon sun lighting the spire with stunning colour standing out against the stormy sky – glorious! Technical details: Fuji X-E1;35mm(XF…

Devon Sunset

A stunning five shot panorama taken near our holiday cottage a few miles outside South Molton of the Devon sunset – turns out that ‘red sky at night…’ did not apply – Sunday was rather wet to start off with, though did improve later…good for Sparky’s first visit to the beach…more to follow… Post processed to…

Wellington Monument

Here we have a silhouette of the Wellington Monument in the Blackdown Hills near Wellington, Somerset. I had just dropped my son off at school in Tiverton and was heading back home, and, as the evening was sunny (certainly way more than I had seen for much of the day!) I decided to take a small detour to take…

St Paul’s Cathedral

  Another shot taken last Thursday evening on the way back to my hotel – St Paul’s Cathedral and the Millenium Bridge taken from the South side of the River Thames.  A long exposure (15s) so the people on the bridge have disappeared (not that there were many when this was taken, and the river is…

Glastonbury Tor

  This is a set of four photographs taken last weekend during a trip to Glastonbury Tor and St Michael’s Tower – a rather overcast day until we were leaving, lending itself nicely to the conversion to Black and White. We got lucky with the parking, finding a space quite close to the bottom of the Tor…

Paxos Sunrise

This is a photograph of a Paxos sunrise back in 2012 – the view is looking east across the Ionian Sea towards mountains on mainland Greece from Villa Noema (booked through James Villas) on the Island of Paxos.  Taken early in the morning (EXIF shows 04:00…but I think its was more like 06:00)…early for a…

Hyde Park Sunshine

Just a quick post today of a photograph I took of the sunshine in Hyde Park this morning – absolutely glorious weather!   Technical details Fuji X-E1;18mm(XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS);f/9;1/450s;ISO200; Handheld  

The Orca

This is a picture of The Orca – she is moored on the banks of the River Thames near St.John’s Lock, between Buscot and Lechlade in the Gloucestershire countryside – I think this just counts as the Cotwolds (especially as she is moored on the north bank of the river!) I took this photograph on Saturday…
