Taken on a beach on the Isle of Wight. I spotted this guy about to walk past me at the very last minute. I was lucky to get a clear shot and only had to clone out one small child.

Cornillon

This is Cornillon in southern France, a beautiful little village up in the hills. We stayed just down the road and strolled through some vineyards to get there. I’ve tweaked levels and added a selective colour layer to make the … Continue reading

Just returned from a week in the south of France with a stack load of postable shots. This one was the easiest to process and one of my favourites, more to follow.

Taken on the Isle of Wight a few weekends ago. I love the ageing and sun bleached rope, stretching out to the centre of the frame.

The Crow

I was drawn to this lone crow against the imposing sky. Tinkered with in Lightroom, with some final tweaks in Photoshop. If you’re interested, the original is here.

Spinnaker

This is the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. I was heading back from the Isle of Wight on Sunday evening and the light was just perfect for a blue sky shot. I tinkered with this image for some time tweaking the … Continue reading

Winter Lake

This one was inspired by David Nightingale’s Winter Lake. I still very much prefer his image to mine, just getting the colour palette right to make it look cold is quite tricky. This was taken in Dulwich Park a week … Continue reading

Well, I had to get a new image up and take my decorations down. It is the 12th day of Christmas and all. This one was taken on Boxing Day in Kesley Park, Beckenham.

I thought I should post an image that was a little more Festive. I’d seen a few of this style knocking around on Flickr and thought I’d have a go at doing one myself. The camera will be concentrating on … Continue reading

The Fairy Godmother-In-Law

Another from the the Vivienne Westwood designed windows at Selfridges in Oxford Street. I have no idea what this one was supposed to be, but she looked pretty creepy without all my tinkering with the image. It was the strewn … Continue reading

If you’ve not seen the Vivienne Westwood designed windows at Selfridges in Oxford Street you really need to. This is just one of the many fairy tale themed sets with Vivienne’s twist. Obviously, the Agent Provocateur lingerie clad mannequin was … Continue reading

Saint Mary Cathedral

This is Saint Mary Cathedral in Austin, Texas. It gave me another chance to step out of the torrential rain I experienced whilst there. I hovered for a moment outside with the camera, as there was a service about to … Continue reading

This was taken whilst I was on holiday in France. Having spotted this barn across the road from where we were staying I snuck in one early morning as the sun was rising to get some shots. I had to … Continue reading

The Texas State Capitol #2

I’ve spent the last week working in Austin, Texas. My second visit this year. I went on another photowalk yesterday and had to keep diving inside to avoid the thunderstorms. After about fifty straight days of temperatures of 100F I … Continue reading

Just a Giraffe

I’ve just returned from a week in France which was very enjoyable and well needed, but passed too quickly. I’ve got a bunch of images I’m happy with and will gradually post them here. This one was taken on our … Continue reading
