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

A roughting revisit

A Roughting revisit

I have photographed Roughting Linn before but it’s always nice to revisit old locations and I wasn’t disappointed. I though I would try a different angle this time. This view is probably one that many people photograph where as my other shoot showing the tree in the foreground is less well photographed. The reason I chose this shot was because the light was coming from the left and casting a really highlight on the rock to the right. Unlike many other waterfalls I tend to visit this one is rather easy to get to so a quick detour when I visit Harthope Valley is not out of the way.

Harbour side


Harbour side is another of those shots where I have photographed the same location many times. But again it was just something that grabbed my attention as I was walking along the quayside that day. I think it was the fact there was only 2 boats in harbour and the sea was dead flat calm. I often walk along the harbour at Amble. The place never cease to fascinate me. I just love the smell and watching the boats and seabirds.
