Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Light beams shining through a window or breaking through clouds. What could be more ephemeral and as photographers sometimes we have just a second or two to capture the moment. That’s usually the time I have my camera switched off or I’m driving along a road where it’s not safe to stop. For the camera,... Continue Reading →

52 in 2015 Week 13 Free Choice

A free choice this week and i can choose my subject. It’s been a while since I visited “the Duke” and as he’s only just down the road it seemed a good idea to go and pay my respects. Yesterday started off in typical fashion of the weather we have been experiencing recently; wet and... Continue Reading →

52 in 2015 Week 10 DOF

Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth

For this weeks challenge photograph I’m doing a bit of lateral thinking, or, maybe I’m just trying to make a photograph fit the theme again. There has been a reasonably heavy fall of snow in the Snowdonia National Park but with strong winds a lot has blown off the upper parts of the mountains meaning... Continue Reading →

52 in 2015 Week 5 Song or Book
