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

Natures wonder

I don’t do as much wild life shoots as I should. I really should do more. My genre is really landscape and seascapes as many of you know, although I have started to broaden my horizon on that score with my new love in photography. Street Life. The problem with wild life shots is of course by their very nature birds and animals are naturally cautious of people and other predators. Like dogs for instance. And as I always have Tess with me not such an easy genre to photograph. But I occasionaly get the odd shot in when they aren’t looking. Like this lovely starling sitting on top of Lobster Pots

The little house in the woods

Little house in the woods

I have come across this little cabin several times when I have been wandering through the woods. What a fascinating place it is. Tucked away from prying eyes in the middle of all this wild life. Apparently it was built by the owner of the woods for his family to enjoy during school holidays etc. However I don’t think it has been used for some time. There are no amenities of course, it being stuck out in the middle of nowhere but O what a fabulous place to use as a base to explore these fabulous woods.
