A stormy day


A stormy day on the lake in winter. It’s an old picture, just experimenting with new editing tools. It’s better than it was, but there’s still lots to play around with.


Drop everything and run


There are times when you just have to drop everything and run. The light is so overwhelming that you just have to go and photograph it. This was one of those times. I just managed to get high enough ┬ábefore the light disappeared. I’m not always so fortunate.

Binsey is a little known hill at the top of the Lake District. Although it’s a “Wainwright”, the number of people who walk up it compared to Catbells, is tiny. Even though it’s only a couple of meters lower. However, it gives stunning views south towards Keswick and over the Solway to Dumfries and Galoway.

Night Photography

Although it may appear to be counter-intuitive, you can take photographs in the dark. This example was taken during an evening exploring the Christmas lights in Ambleside and Grasmere. This particular photo was taken using my phone and all post-pro was performed using snapseed.

One of those days

One of those days when the conditions produced breathtaking views. Amazingly this was captured with a OnePlus 3 phone using the standard camera app. It was automatically stitched together using the panorama mode. I used snapseed to crop out the untidy edges but no other post-processing was needed.
