  • Replied in It's Warming Up
    The evenings are getting longer and hotter,  as a result, the colours and light are changing on my moorland walks. This particular walk felt like the warmest so far, particularly during the early ...
  • Sunday evening's walk didn't hold much promise for a nice sunset, beginning with leaden skies and the promise of heavy rain as I made my way between Heapey moor and Anglezarke moor. There were ...
  • Yeah, when it works, it works very well, although it can be a little bit prone to artifacts. Here's a crop from the top left corner of the sunset image and you can see there are a number of double ...
  • Just the one from me this week as I haven't had time to properly go through the rest of the shots from this particular hike, but this one looked worth spending a little time on in C1P. Taken with ...
  • I like the light and composition in #1, but I think #2 is my pick here, with the staircase reminiscent of the inside of a Nautilus shell.
  • Replied in Trompe l'oeil.
    What a bizarre looking building. It looks like it's got built in perspective correction for someone standing at the base of it and looking up. Hope the eye surgery has gone well.
  • Despite getting out on walks a couple of times this week I've not really captured much that's worth sharing, so most of these images come from a set taken a few weeks ago that somehow got overlooked. ...
  • The day was rather gloomy with and these images reflect the conditions, in fact I'd probably say these are a bit brighter than it looked in real life. It was great to be back on the fells although ...
  • It's 12 months since I last visited Borrowdale, one of my favourite parts of the Lake District. Unfortunately, I've recently been suffering from some heart related issues and was advised back in ...
  • Both of these are excellent images, but the first one is exceptional in every way.
  • You timed your trip well as they're only around for a short time. #2 is my pick here, it's a nice woodland scene that's really enhanced by the carpet of bluebells. With all of my walking on the ...
  • Replied in Pennine Edge
    A location that's still on my "to-do" list where you've captured some really interesting images. The wall in the last one wins the sheer bloody-mindedness award for determination. I wonder how ...
  • This week I have mostly been spending my evenings walking on Anglezarke Moor. It's been great weather for walking (dry and slightly chilly with a gentle breeze), although the sunsets have been a ...
  • Yeah, the long 400m lens really flattens perspective. Apparently some of the turbines are 623ft tall, while Blackpool Tower itself is slightly shorter at a mere 518ft.
  • For the cairn shot I presume you mean #4? The cairn is situated in a ring of light green grass and I deliberately positioned myself so that the cairn would sit in the centre of the crepuscular ...
  • I've been pottering about on the moors quite a bit over the last couple of weeks, particularly exploring Anglezarke moor which lies adjacent to my regular haunts of Heapey moor and Great Hill. ...
  • Replied in Street Shots
    #1 is my pick here. Quite a humorous composition that made me chuckle. Well spotted.
  • Replied in North Uist
    #2 is a great image, with sweeping lines and dynamic contrast between the menacing storm cloud and the brightly lit beach.
  • It depends what you mean. I could lose some of the sky, pull some detail out of the clouds and amp up the red glow a bit, in which case it would look like this... Is that the sort of thing you were ...
  • The weather was a bit on the wet side during the early part of this week, something that never used to stop me heading out with the camera, but these days I seem to have become a bit of a fine ...
