Twilight descends on Cromer pier.
Many years ago the first photo magazine I bought had a shot very similar to this in it which I liked, so years later when I found myself in Cromer as well as taking loads of other shots I had to have ago at a composition similar to the one I had seen many years ago that had inspired me.
I hope somebody out there sees my shot and is similarly inspired.

Enjoy the lovely cosy mood in this photo by the talented +Karen Hutton
One Hot Idea... Valley of Fire, Nevada
(From a recent blog post:

Her brain felt hot, steamy - feverish, almost. 
It was always like that right before the Next Hot Idea popped out of it. 
I processed this one from the mood I was in at the time. I always put a lot of myself into photo processing; some just come out as more of a direct imprint than others. I talk about that on my blog post, linked to at the top of this post. 

I shot it auto-bracketed, but wasn't sure if I'd go all-HDR on it in post processing or not. Sometimes sunsets with a lot of pink or red in them can look a bit iridescent, which I don't love. In the end, I used HDR more in the rocks and sand to get the textures.. and blended two of the more nicely colored skies together for the basic image. Then I went from there, as I always do, to give it the amount of contrast, texture, color and light quality that was in my hot and stormy mood that night. :D

How nice it was yesterday to get a bit of morning mist followed by some nice warmth with blue sky and fluffy clouds.

Late Light at Ramshaw Rocks
A couple of buddies thoughtfully took me out to Ramshaw rocks in the Peak district UK as part of my rehabilitation from a serious shoulder injury I need to start getting out in more challenging ground and stretching myself and recovering physiologically.

It was also a great chance to take the Sony A7R and Zeiss 24-70 F4 lens out for a spin. I have had to stop using my D800 due to my current physical limitations so I got the A7R which I can cope with size/weight wise and after a couple of trips and some playing at home I am getting to grips with it, as I have an NEX7 it wasn't too big a jump to understand the control and menu systems and the field craft used for a D800 is the same as required for the A7R although if its windy due to the cameras lighter weight I might need a few extra rocks to weigh down the tripod.

All in all I am pleased with the photo I made in the few moments of nice warm light before the sun hid behind a bank of clouds. 

If you like it please feel free to share.

Stanage edge, Peak district National Park, UK
Amazingly this morning it wasn't raining so despite the biting cold and wind I ventured out and was rewarded with some nice light. 
It was a test mission trying out the Sony A7R ahead of my big trip to New Zealand in April comparing lens's and getting familiar with the new body but I managed to grab this shot which I quite like.
If you like it please feel free to reshare.

Midlands, UK
Landscape photographer, web technologist and motor sport enthusiast.
I am a self-taught photographer, I love the large sea/landscape I usually take my photos at dusk and dawn, pursuing a dramatic edge when the light is at its best, my photos are a personal interpretation of the subject, not pictorially accurate but to convey how I felt about the subject. Although drawn to sea and landscapes I will photograph anything occasionally doing motor sports, still life and when I can find a subject, knackered looking buildings. 

I’m from Nottingham in the English midlands about as far from the coast as you can be in the UK – I'm constantly looking for dramatic locations, like the Derbyshire Peak District or the glorious Isle of Skye. I want my images to make the viewer draw breath as they take in the sweeping landscape or the crashing waves so I make the effort to go to the best places at the times when the light and conditions are optimal to get a dramatic scene. 

There are so many great photographers, when you are competing, it can often be that extra edge that elevates your image into a ‘win-zone’ and I find the challenge of competition motivating pushing me to up my game and produce better photographs. 

I have made great friends through my love of photography and a sharing a passion for dramatic locations with like-minded explorers like Ian Pinn/PinkyPinn and Scott Wilson/wilsonaxpe amongst others – check out their work - you won't be disappointed! 

So much about our trips is about trying to nail those ‘winning’ images that will attain competition or exhibition standard but, more than anything, the shoots I share with these guys are great times, some of the very best and you can't ever really capture that sense of fun, adventure and comradeship in a photo.

My cameras are a Nikon D800 and a Sony NEX7, I always shoot in Raw and I use Lightroom, photoshop, onone & nik software for post processing, when I have completed a photo I print it out to display in exhibitions, use in competitions and put on my office walls, I love holding a large print.

So, that’s me, photographically speaking…. I hope you enjoy my work and experience even a fraction of the pleasure from my images that I get from shooting them. I’m inspired daily by the great work I see on Google+, Flickr and 500px and it just pushes me to want to get better and go further…. Here’s to the next great trip wherever that may be. 

Prints of my work are available for purchase from my website
