Some of my most recent Photo Shoots!

This is some of the stuff I've taken on my most recent photo shoots. And a little about the story behind them. A potpourri if you like of the hows and whys and the wherefores of why I took them and what drew me to them in the first place, And for those who want to know the technical details of shutter speed, etc. etc. then you will find that here too. Whenever I can, I will also provide some local history of the shot, thrown in for good measure. Hope you like it

Pointing The Way

Pointing The Way

Another shot taken in Bremish Valley. It seems I am going there more and more lately. I think because at this time of the year (late Autumn) not many people visit, which suits me fine. This day I decided to take the 3 mile round trip up to Linhope Spout. A waterfall that crashes down in to the valley below. Last time I was up this way I had seen this lone sign post that points the way to the falls and thought then it would be a nice shoot once the bracken and hillside changed towards winter. I think I was right and hope I have done the sparseness of the landscape justice.

The Way Home

The Way Home

just love the changing seasons we have here in Britain, don't you? Winter with its icy fingers reaching out across bleak moorlands. Spring with its new hope of life to come with buds on the trees and flowers and the Summer with the song of the lark and the warmth on your back as you walk through lush green fields. And then there is the majestic sight of Autumn with its golden leaves and the browns of the bracken. Would I rather live any other place? I think not. I have made Northumberland my home and am thankful for the events that brought me here. This is one of my favourite places that I come to often. I walk Tess here now I no longer have my daring little girl Cindy Lou and I like to think she is looking down on me as she runs free in doggy heaven. Why The Way Home? Well this is the path that I see on my way back to the car and if you look closely you will see a little house on the hill. That for me would be a perfect place to live., if I didn't already live in a perfect place that is.
