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 […]

Ocean Views of St. Ives

You’ll see Julian featured a lot on this site. We grew up together in Brindle, and have been really close friends since around about our high-school years. Every year, for 3 or 4 years, we’d travel down to Newquay in Cornwall, and stay for a week of camping, relaxing, sunbathing, beach-dwelling and end it all […]

Crest of the hill

Over 3 days, 20+ cyclists consisting of strangers, friends and family alike, travelled from Lairg to Thurso, and onto the island of Orkney. It was part of another Prestwick Cycle Challenge, but this time the ‘challenge’ was re-enforced by horrendous weather. This day in particular, however, the weather held off long enough to get a […]

The travelled route

On another one of the yearly Prestwick Cycle Challenge rides, me and a group of 20+ friends and strangers alike, found ourselves in Scotland, soaking up the beautiful landscape. In this shot, you can see where we’ve come from (the tiny house slightly right of centre frame). I stopped to take a moment to shoot […]

Wait for help

This picture was taken in an underground bar, in Edinburgh. I was on the stag do of my friend from Brindle Band, Tom Norris. It was around 8pm, and a group of 10 or so of us were looking for a walk-in available place to order some food. A tall order, sure, but this place […]

An Oxford Graduation

A few years back I went on a solo-cycling trip down in Oxford. The first day I tackled an 111 mile bike ride (Still my longest ever ride to date [2020]), and the second day I headed into London to be a tourist for the day. I snapped this shot in the evening of the […]

Paddling in Fudge

Hidden in a ye-olde side street in Bath is an old fashioned fudge shop, where through the windows you can watch fudge being cooked, spread, cooled and cut, right before yours eyes. It was really interesting to see, and given that it was around Christmas time, a fudge and a hot chocolate were just what […]
