I Forgot To Put A Title To This Post

Point of Ayr, the site of an old colliery, three side of the site are fenced, the fourth side is open. Where's the logic in that? Since my last visit, almost two years ago, nature has really taken over. There's not a lot to photograph on the site and the only real things of interest... Continue Reading →

Step Back In Time

Way back in 2013 Channel 4, a UK TV company, produced an excellent drama series called "The Mill". Set in industrial England around about 1833 the historical drama, in four parts, showed life for workers at Quarry Bank Mill in Cheshire, based on the extensive historical archive of the mill. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YacizJRW4WI Trailer for "The Mill"...

Living History

Roman Britain, Vikings & Saxons, Jousting Knights, Cavaliers & Roundheads, World War 1 & 2, the Victorians, to name but a few, the United Kingdom is not short of reenactment groups who give up their time and money to present us with living history. For a photographer there's some great opportunities, as most reenactors are... Continue Reading →

The gardens are a National Trust property, spanning about 80 acres of hillside with formal Italianate terraces... ...and shrub borders stocked with plants from all over the world. At first everything is on the level with well laid out paths. You can... Continue Reading →

The Watkins Path

Another day out in Snowdonia, this time on the Watkin Path, considered to be the most brutal of the paths to the summit of Snowdon. But I wouldn't be going that far. The path starts with a  wander through the woods and for photographers there are some good photo opportunities. Moss is growing on everything... Continue Reading →

Industrial North Wales

Although I like the them I'm using on my blog I'm not too happy about the size of the images that are displayed. It was so... Continue Reading →

Never Trust A Weather Report

It's Tuesday, night and I'm at home planning a trip to Llanddwyn Island for the following day. Being tidal I need to check the tide times, Low Tide is 09:15 and High is 14:38, More than enough to get on, have a wander round, take some photographs and get back without getting my feet wet....

A Look Back In Time

Way back in 2013 I wrote about the sea defences that protect Prestatyn and showed a series of photographs taken at sunset. When I look back at that post I realise how cringe worthy my photographs were then, mainly due to over enthusiatic use of HDR processing. Nowadays I would do those photos completely differently,...
