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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Los Patos

I’ve talked before about my woes with using tripods & ND filters. It’s a skill I’ve never fully mastered, but something I like to practice. On one saturday afternoon, I heading over to Bolton (Edgeworth reservoir, I think) to tackle some long exposure shots at a local res. Again, not many of the shots I […]

Tainted orange

About 300ft down the same beach as where I saw and admired the Spanish fisher, this door was sitting as the entrance-way to a seemingly derelict building. When I think of a ‘Derelict building’, at least in the UK, dirty browns and blacks come to mind, with soggy, rotten MDF covering the windows and entranceways. […]

Snowy Robin

This is yet another shot from when myself and Julian went on a whistle-stop tour of Brindle after a particularly snowy day. I remember, for this picture, I made Julian wait for what seemed like forever, whilst I tried to dial in and figure out how to get this picture. It was a bright, white, […]

On the shoulders

Here’s yet another shot from when I went to visit my friends down in Bath, and took a day to wander round the Christmas Markets, armed with nothing but a coat and a camera. I’ve shared quite a few from that weekend, simply because Christmas markets are quite photogenic by nature: The man selling pork […]

The nifty 50 strikes again. I love this lens for capturing exactly what I remember scenes looking like at the time. This lens never feels like it’s too artificially zoomed, or like it’s got a superhuman field of view. Admittedly, my camera is a crop sensor, so I suppose I’m actually singing the praises of […]
