52 in 2015 Week 30 Sport

People just don’t want their photographs taken nowadays. This weeks 52 in 2015 challenge is sport and I had a hard time convincing someone to allow me to take their photograph. Despite asking politely I got a lot of bad-tempered replies so I was left with no option but to go into “sneaky” mode for... Continue Reading →

52 in 2015 Week 6 Low Key

Week 6 and it’s taken me until the weekend to get the final photograph for Low Key. With the successful visit into the National Park and the “Hairy Moment” in our pursuit of snow I needed some time to recover before shooting that Low Key photograph. But what exactly is Low Key?

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 →

The lighthouse... Continue Reading →

Look on the web and you will see hundreds of definitions for minimalism, many of them similar, but some at the opposite ends of the spectrum/... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

I’ve been experimenting with long exposures this week by sticking a 10 Stop ND Filter on the front of my lens. These filters are almost black and cut down the amount of light reaching the sensor which means you have to keep the shutter open longer to capture the same amount of light. For example,...

Symphony Of Lights

Every night in Hong Kong Victoria Harbour is lit up with a dazzling multimedia light show which illuminates the exterior of 45 buildings on both sides of the harbour. Developed by Laservision, an Australian firm, the show features music, decorative lighting and lasers. Guinness World Records has recorded the show as the world’s largest permanent...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

At last! A weekly photo challenge theme that I have no trouble interpreting. Endurance lets me use some of the old churches that I have spent the last six month photographing. So as an added bonus I’m going to include a few photographs from the village of Llanelidan, North Wales. Like many small villages, the church,... Continue Reading →
