Photo: Riding The Storm

You may have noticed of late I am not replying with my usual gusto here and I think maybe a little disappointment had crept in over recent events. I did though go out this afternoon to catch the clouds that have been hanging overhead for most of the day in the UK, this was taken down by Hale Lighthouse on the banks of the river Mersey. My intention was to get the clods with the lighthouse but when I saw the fields full of in bloom rape seed I thought the opposing colours looked so much better.

It was only when I was taking the images I decided it was about time to dust myself off and get my ass back into gear, I apologise for not responding as normal but things are now in perspective , I have my own fate in my own hands, I kind of think its a pretty safe place to keep it.

Photo: When The Days Are Ours

When the sun plays with the shadows
And light of gold dances in the air
When warmth covers the cold of morning
The summer sunrise will beckon the dawn
Then my son we shall walk these paths
We shall travel to lands while following the sunrise
For now these days are truly ours.


Should it be the daybreak that opens your eyes or the pure elixir of the hustle and bustle of the city that pumps the blood through your veins. Find what drives you, find that something that is yours and embrace it, then you will embrace the day and in doing so your life. We are but fleeting moments, whispers of history and heartbeats of pure time. Be all that you are and remember these days are ours.

The dreams you have are not as far away as you think they are.

I get many e mails and I struggle to get through them at times, I got this one when I came home and it kind of blew me away, I thought I would share it here but take out the names but just to say thank you, you make and old man smile :)

"Hi Mike, you don't know me, I am new to Google+ but my husband has admired your work ever since he joined Google+ about a year ago... I'm still learning how to drive this thing, but just felt compelled to let you know how much you have inspired my husband to really place his emotions in all his shots and I don't think you realise how much you have actually helped new photographers like my husband to really find their feet. He's a truck driver and only just picked up a camera less than 2 years ago now...his growth has been phenomenal. I hope to support him and his passion for photography by understanding where he's coming from and now I can see why he loves the google+ community so much...there are just so many inspirational people on here, right at your fingertips. Thank you for your beautiful posts, poetry and for everything you've done for my husband...even if you didn't know it :D

Bideford is a small fishing town in the south west of England, it is typically English with small narrow streets, markets and many places to just relax and chill out. When we visit we stood at the edge of the harbour and watched these dark foreboding clouds roll in. For me its only when I see the immenseness of the clouds in the sky dwarfing everything else do you realise the power that is up there.

last image from me so I don't keep spamming your streams :)

There are many rules in photography, one being you should never shoot directly into the sun but if you didn't then how would you know just how much fun it would be.

This was taken down on Southport beach in the UK, I have a love of Landrovers and hope to own a large Safari one in the future, they are built like tanks so seeing this pick up back lit by the sun was too good an opportunity for me to miss.


I have been busy the last few days and I'm not going to be around much for this weekend as we have a big festival at Liverpool too, I will be out and about in the rain trying to not get too wet, have fun and don't break anything ;)
