Spanish Sizzle

On yet another Mallorca cycling trip, mid-way through a 300-400 mile holiday, we had a BBQ night. This is the right way to do it – 10+ people, lots and lots of meat, tonnes of salads, cous cous, fresh veg. All conducted by the light of the evening sun, sat by the pool, and lubricated […]

Smiler

For my dad’s 60th birthday, the Kellett family took a trip to Ireland for some celebrations, relaxing, and visiting family. This picture was taken whilst visiting family over in Galway, where they have a gorgeous house in a very remote & scenic part of the country. This was the maiden voyage for my new 35mm […]

Musings in the Heaton Cooper Studio

A few years back myself, Julian & Jake headed up to Grasmere for the weekend for some walking, relaxing & drinking at the Grasmere Guzzler Beer Festival. Before lunch one day, we darted into the Heaton Cooper Studio to pass a half hour or so. The lake district is already a gorgeous place, but when […]

Rolling hills of Scotland

I took this one on the go – 20mph on the bike, with my arm outstretched from the back of our small peleton during another Prestwick Cycle Challenge ride up in Scotland. I found these rolling hills so pretty – they had the smooth lines of sand dunes, but were covered with thick brush that […]

No gi Jiu Jitsu

One of my few visits to Liverpool, despite having lived 45 minutes away my entire life. This time it was to see a few of my old pals from the Alley Cat Academy, including Andrew Hardwick from Brotherhood Health & Performance. This was a no-gi event put on by Figure 4 Promotions, if I remember […]

Picking peas in Alcudia market

Another non-cycling related shot from a cycling holiday over in Mallorca. For this holiday, we had a beautiful villa by the sea in Alcudia, just 10 minutes walk from the Old Town where I took this one. I slung my DSLR over my shoulder, and rode into the old town in my civvies to soak […]

Climbing Pendle Hill

This shot was taken at the bottom of Pendle Hill, just after myself and Julian turned off the main road and started the scenic climb. It was a beautiful day, and although taking some editing liberties, this picture is a fairly accurate representation of how bright a day it was. A bit about lenses… It […]

Weathered paths on Pendle Hill

On a sunny day in 2017, myself and Julian hiked up Pendle Hill. It’s only a short walk in East Lancashire, at about 1200ft of climbing. This shot was taken as we were starting to approach the summit of the hill – as you looked down, you could see the trial of people scattered around […]

Firework

Similar to First Winter, this shot was from my first winter season in my (then) new home in Chorley. I remember being sat watching The Office, when I heard fireworks. There’s a funny story behind this one. I grabbed my bike, shot off down the path towards the fireworks, and found out there was a […]

First Winter

The colours don’t pop, the framing is off, the contrast isn’t all that, but this picture reminds me of my first winter in my (then) new home. Most of the pictures of my own house are just decorating progression pictures, with this being one of the few that shows the ‘view’ from the living room […]
