Photography on a sunny day

The sun is out!! After weeks of snow, rain and generally poor weather, we finally see some sunshine! I'm normally a fan of stormy and wild weather, as it's great for landscape photography, and, according to my soon-to-be-wife, it's the kind of weather that best suits my personality... However, it's nice to see some sunshine … Continue reading Photography on a sunny day

Lost in Northumberland – On the road to Ingram Valley

As a Photographer, if you get lost in Northumberland, don't worry. There's always something to photograph.

New Content – The House on the rocks

The House on the rocks I originally shot this image about 6 years ago, but at the time I wasn't really happy with how it turned out; there was nothing happening in the sky, leaving it feeling slightly dull and boring. I did, however, like the composition, and decided to reshoot it on a stormy … Continue reading New Content – The House on the rocks

A storm in Tynemouth

More wind, rain and cloud in the Northeast of England yesterday, which (maybe without the rain) makes me a happy man! After doing my house-husband duties, I headed out to Tynemouth yesterday to catch myself some huge waves and moody skies. I wasn't disappointed. A storm at Tynemouth I thought that this was as close … Continue reading A storm in Tynemouth

A return to Italy

One of my very first blogs on this site was called Oh to be in Venice! where I recalled my trip to Rome, Florence and Venice. I ultimately ended up proposing to my future wife on the Rialto Bridge on our last night, so the country definitely has a place in my heart. After finding my lost … Continue reading A return to Italy

The Shadow Man

Monday mornings are supposed to be dull and dreary affairs; the kind of day that you just want to end as soon as it's begun. My wife-to-be woke up this morning expecting my usual caveman-esque  grunt, but instead I woke her up with a kiss, a "Good Morning!" and a glint in my eye. I … Continue reading The Shadow Man
