It’s Been Raining!

Please excuse the title of this post as I planned to post it a few weeks ago, and for the past few days we have experienced beautiful blue skies, so my wish has been granted. However, please find the original post below as things are still pretty soggy and boggy!! Now, some of you may […]

#WexMondays – Image Review

Firstly, thanks to Sophie at Wex Photographic for contacting me about this image and asking if I would like to put this blog post together as to how this image was achieved. After initially submitting it to #WexMondays I was surprised by the interest it generated including that of the Frecce Tricolori themselves. I have […]

RNAS Culdrose Pre-Airshow Day – Goodbye 771

RNAS Culdrose Pre-Airshow day – Flight Deck

When we arrived on the flight deck there was a lot of activity with many aircraft taxiing to and from the runway. Having been informed that we had 30 minutes to photograph (which is actually not long to think about, compose and shoot your images), off we set with cameras in hand. With a plethora […]

RNAS Culdrose Pre-Airshow Day – Dummy Deck

My next few posts are going to move away from my usual photographic subjects as I took the opportunity in July to attend the pre-airshow day at RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall with fellow photographer Stuart Warstat. We had the opportunity to photograph a wide variety of planes and helicopters used by the Royal Navy, as well […]

Didcot Railway Centre

A few weekends ago, I was able to go and visit a very ‘different’ kind of venue to my usual Exmoor and wildlife haunts, and this time with my dad. We took a step back in time to visit the good old age of steam at the Didcot Railway Centre in Oxfordshire. I think my […]

Surfin’ Rocks

Now and again, I get the opportunity to go #walkabout – not quite to the extent of Crocodile Dundee (for those of us old enough to remember him!), but just locally and with no real plan. I like being able to take time out sometimes and just be in my own space with nothing but […]
