Borough Market
I am to street photography what Teresa May is to civil liberties (if you're American, Donald Trump). Nevertheless, sometimes you've just got to give it the old college try. Borough Market is an iconic place - which means that the wannabe street photographer...

Before A Fall
Recently I've been quite happy with my landscape photography and congratulating myself on the progress I've made. As we all know Pride Comes Before a Fall - and this was the trip where it all went horribly wrong. Although it's true that No Battle Plan Survi...

Harvest Home
Nikon D7200 f5.6 34mm 1/40 ISO 200 In some ways it's quite hard being a Northern Photographer (just). The Southerners have been knocking out images of combine harvesters and bales for weeks now but most of the cereals around here haven't been cut yet so thi...

Colborough Hill
Dawn itself was spectacular, the sun boiling and raging behind a single low cloud on the horizon. Tricked by the fact that sunrise is now after 6am, it was all over by the time I got to the top of Colborough Hill. With the rain in the night I had hoped for ...
