Enchanted Woods

Low winter sun provides all the lighting required for these shots.

Woodland Barcode

Trying to be creative in the woods, I used my flash gun on-camera with colour ‘gels’ – actually transparent sweet wrappers, to capture these images.  Someone on Facebook said the featured image looked like a woodland barcode, hence the title of this post.

Abandoned

It doesn’t look like this walkway has been used much lately, but provides a great subject for photography.  While shot in monochrome (RAW), a colour version was also produced for my Alamy profile.

Waiting at Weybourne

Sometimes you arrive at a destination and are handed a great photo opportunity, such was the case when we recently arrived at Weybourne Beach.

Stormy Norfolk Sunset

As the rain fell over Castle Acre it presented an opportunity for capturing these images.

Keeping It Simple

While wide angle snowy landscapes look nice, this is my favourite image from the recent snowy shoot.  Keeping it simple.

One Snowy Day

Yep, that’s all the snow we’ve had in our part of the UK so far – 1 day (17th Jan)!  Luckily, my son’s football match was postponed, and not wanting to waste getting up early on a Sunday, made my way to Bison Hill on the Chiltern Hills to get some shots from the snow that had fallen overnight.  By the end of the day all the snow had gone.

Winter Beach at Wells

27th December 2015 – constantly raining further inland, we risked a trip to get some fresh air and were rewarded by a short period of a clearer sky and more strangely, absolutely no breeze.

Speed at Sunset

A freight train and Pendalino pass through the station at high speed (and for a change, at the same time!).

Zooming In After Sunset

Taken with my Canon EF 90-300mm lens at 300mm, this lens is great for bringing out the detail and rich colours in shots like this.
