I've been away a long time..again!  oops...

I had a go at tidying up my website a bit and got out of the habit of posting.   Still, I have been out and about taking photographs, and now I've got more than I know what to do with!!

This is a shot from along the Cornwall coast, last summer.  I've just got round to processing it and I loved the warm light from the evening, dusky sky, and the cooler shaded foreground.  A very nice colour combination.

It was always my intention this year to post more, as well as write a lot more stuff on my website.  But the re-formatting of the CSS and stuff, which I enjoyed, took some time.  Not there is any great difference, but it does get really fiddly when you don't really know what you are doing!

Anyway, I am here now...so expect a lot more, and more regularly from now on!

Bye for now....

Norfolk coastline, England.

I have jst processed this image after taking it a few months ago.  What struck me after all this time is the movement in the water.  The small wave crashing and the water moving up towards me.

I love skies like this...they are full of little bits of colour, as the sun catches different chunks of cloud, both thin cloudy bits and thicker cloudy bits!!

And then the subtle green of the sea and the shades of blue in the sky... Anyway..a peaceful scene, and the is nothing nicer than hearing the lapping of the waves on the beach, and having all the time in the world to take a picture...or even just sit and watch!

Swanage Bay, Dorset, England, UK

This was taken a half an hour or so after the more colourful dawn pictures previously posted.

There was hardly any colour in the image, and the light was very subdued.  But I love the subtle colouring, and I resisted the temptation to turn it into a black and white, which was my original intention.

Dorset coastline...

A beautiful sunrise over the Dorset coast....you never know exactly how the light is going to interact with the sky at this time of day....and it changes minute by minute....

What nature gave me here were stunning subtle warm colours as the sea gently lapped against the shoreline.

The dark structure in the foreground is a groyne...which were embedded into beaches all along the UK coastline from the Victorian era onwards to 'stop'  longshore drift shifting the sand away from beaches....Nowadays the sand is pretty much allowed to go where it wants and these groynes are just a souvenir of a previous era.

Chesil beach...

Chesil beach at dusk.  It's the house that turned my head when I composed this shot.  It's funny how something so small in the frame, can drive the urge to take a photograph!

The rest of the photo speaks for itself I suppose!  Beach scene, setting sun....

I allowed the purpley-blue colour tone to remain, as this was a colour embedded in the original raw files.   I think it comes from the Neutral density filter that I used to darken the sky and to equalize the very bright bit on the left on the horizon.

I do use Lee filters, but regardless of what people may say...they do add a colour cast.  Easily removed of course, but I liked the warming effect on this photo...so it stayed!

I wondered if anyone out there has joined Ello, the social networking site?

I ask because I have been on there a few days and quite like it as a platform for showing off photos...

If anyone wants an invite I am happy to hand them out if you just leave a comment...I will then send you one via the email account in your profile.

I have heard some barbed comments about Ello, but people should remember it's being written and debugged day by day....and that is how twitter and facebook was created all those years ago.  

Google+ was created by over 2000 people with hundreds of millions of dollars of cash upfront...and therefore was able to appear complete almost overnight.  Direct comparisons with G+ are a little unfair in my opinion.

Also, Ello isn't trying to outcompete anyone or anything.  It kind of accidently went viral a few weeks ago, and the interest that created has also created some resentment of the usual and predictable kind.

Ello will be non-advertising...and will not rely on advertising to survive, that also means no data mining to sell to third parties.  

But more importantly in my opinion, Ello's aim is to encourage engagement, rather than build up the numbers. Quality not quantity is what they say.

What I like though is that all those experts out there are saying that it can't be done without advertising....and I love Ello's shrug of the shoulders attitude to this.  We'll see, they say!!  And I like that.

It does mean that they will charge for certain features in the future, but it sounds like it will be more like Wordpress, which is free for all, unless you choose to add features.

My own guess is that account management facilities such as unfollow unfollowers/inactive could be a premium feature in future....and considering the extortionate pricing of these services for twitter/facebook/google, from third party individuals....I think a micropayment to Ello for this service would be more affordable and preferable.

But as a photographer who wants to post pretty pictures of stuff from the great outdoors, I like Ello's simplicity  very much....

So if anyone wants to have a go too...just say so in the comments and I'll send an invite...

Norfolk coastline....

Again!  But taken much earlier.  I processed this for a blog post on my website and gallery, so I thought I'd add it here too.

A very simple scene, I do like low tide in flat places! There is so much to explore when the sea goes out along the Norfolk coastline, and all the boats become stranded.

Thankyou +LyndiaSue Smitman Yes, a low tide like this completely changes the atmosphere of a place...the silence without the water lapping or the boats creaking, and also the smell!  Not  a horrible smell, but just a 'low tide'  that smells of the seaside...

Sunset over the south downs...

I posted a portrait version of this the other day, but having processed this and now looking at it again after a few days, I like the darkness that originally made me put this to one side....so I thought I'd post it here...

This is a sunset over the South Downs, just north of Brighton in East Sussex.  The other portrait image really showed off the dust and muck on my dirty lens!!  This photo seems to be a little more discreet!

Of course, in reality this scene is bright rather than dark, but I exposed for the sun therefore blocking out all the surrounding light...creating a very dark composition.

The viewpoint depicts the edge of a high point in the downs, that on the right side of the photo the horizon curves sharply down to reveal the flat lowlands north of the South downs (if that makes any sense!?).

Another Dorset coastline...
...Or...another dawn, another day!

I just processed this one and loved the silvery colouring with dashes of warm oranges and yellows.

It's as simple a composition as you can get...and I suppose that's all you need if you have the colouring and cloud details....

It is interesting when you apply some contrast to some cloud detaill, and out pops some subtle blues or yellows....

And, it's that groyne again!!

I don't think the original scene was quite as dark as this, but keeping everything a bit dark around the edges allows the sunlight in the cloud detail to take center stage....and it is the light that I am photographing rather than a 150 year old lump of wood!

Isle of Purbeck at dusk

This photo was taken as the last of the light disappeared below the horizon.  I was on theIsle of Purbeck, close to Corfe castle and cycling back to the camp site where I was staying.

I had, in my mind at least, finished with photography for the day.  I was tired and hungry and was speeding along on my bicycle thinking of food.

Although this is not the most glamorous or exciting view in the world, it did grab my attention, and so, reluctantly I parked my bike and set up my tripod!

This composition is probably one of, if not the most common compositions in photography...just place yourself in the middle of a straight road, look ahead and press the shutter.  But for me it is not the composition, but the light that caught my attention.  Or at least the combination of the two.  My photography pretty much consists of me ambling around not doing very much, until I see a composition appear...as if from nowhere!!

Because this was taken on a tripod, there was a temptation to use exposure times to lighten the darkening environment.  But the darkness and rich colours are what makes this image for me, half an hour earlier and I probably would have just trundled past without a care in the world.  But the dark rich colour adds mood and atmosphere that was much closer to the end of the day feeling that I had when I stood alone on the road with a rumbling stomach to take the picture!!

I know some people don't like telegraph poles and cables, as can be seen in this image.  But in the UK there isn't very much in the way of genuine wilderness, and so I have adopted an attitude where I include whatever the environment or nature gives to me.  So I am happy to place a telegraph pole in a composition, just as I am happy to place a mountain or a tree into a composition.

Corfe castle at dawn...

I love this time of day...the air is cool and crisp and I am the only person around....you can hear all the noises of nature and the breeze rustling the grasses and hedges.   I could have passed through here two hundred years ago and the scene at this time of year and this time of day would have looked much the same...(minus the tarmac!!).

The castle was demolished in 1646 during the English civil war, and so this outline against the sky  has remained since...

Anyway, this photo was (and is?) a bit of a write-off as the black silhouetted foreground was extreme...I dragged as much detail out of the raw file as I dared to, and created this final composition with the barely lit road leading the eye into the darkness!!

I used some serious settings on the noise reduction software I used in order to clean up the lightened bits of the foliage and the road in the foregorund.  I actually quite like the dark look although it's not something that I visualized at the time.

Sunset at Chesil beach, Dorset, England

A peaceful evening at Chesil beach...There have been svere storms here recently...but all is calm now!

Just a simple composition with the buildings on the horizon providing some scale.  Chesil beach is a strange formation as it is a beach that has a lagoon behind it so it is a beach surrounded by water!

Anyway, it was a peaceful evening with lovely skies....and that is all that mattered to me!

Self taught photographer travelling the world for even more photographs. I am used to being in new places for short periods of time and that is how my photography has grown.

I have a photoblog as well as a wordblog where I let rip my thoughts on photography and give explanations on photographic technique and how they relate to my photography and how they can relate to your photography. Hop on over there if you will, it's all good clean fun!!

Thanks to all the positive feedback I have on my personal blog, and in answer to some questions that I've been asked in the past, I have written a little eBook that contains 8 articles on photography that were important to me over the last 10 years or so.  Follow this link to read about, and then download the ebook
