Entries to Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013
27th April 2013 - 4 comments
After my near success in last years Take a View landscape photographer of the year competition with 5 short-listed entries, I have decided again (against my better judgement) to put some entries in this year’s competition in the Classic View and Your View categories. The task of choosing images for this competition is always difficult, looking through past winners and inclusions in the Landscape Photographer of the Year book always leaves me a little puzzled as to the kind of image that may do well in the competition.

Castles and Seascapes | Photography trip to Bamburgh Castle on the Northumberland Coastline
08th April 2013 - 1 comment
Over the Easter bank holiday weekend I had the opportunity to stay with friends right by the coastline in Bamburgh on the Northumberland Coast. Whilst this wasn’t a dedicated photography trip I managed to squeeze in a few trips down to the areas around Bamburgh Castle to capture it in a variety of lighting conditions, the photographs that I came back with were very pleasing and a good achievement in the limited time.

The recent heavy snow brought with it the usual disruption and traffic problems; we had snow most weeks during January and early February and only now are temperatures beginning to rise again as spring approaches. During the last period of heavy snow I managed to get out into the Peak District on the snowy roads for a thoroughly enjoyable full day walk.

28th February 2013 - 6 comments
One of the biggest attractions of the Lake District for me is the number of impressive waterfalls throughout the Lakes. The waterfalls of the Lake District really come to life after a period of rain when the hillsides become alive with tumbling water which is quite a sight if you are used to the normal rolling hills of the English landscape.
