I remember, Septembers in love

September 15, 2021

0

It’s been a long old shit wave/ flat spell wait but finally, hurricane Larry delivered the goods; a classic and much fabled September swell. What’s not to love; light winds, sunshine, easy surf and every man and his dog straining at the bit, wound up by Medina and Carissa’s ‘World ChampionsHip” display the day before.. […]

Boardmasters in black and white

August 16, 2021

I set myself a projeckt for the 2021 Boardmasters surf festival, the target was a dozen portraits in black and white. The tool I chose was the Fujifilm XT-3 coupled with the Mitakon 33mm f0.95, a Chinese lens that is only manual focus. The results are below, no captions – just photos – jpegs straight […]

Shinny happy bluebells

May 11, 2021

Back to my local bluebell wood, now in full bloom but this time in a daylong downpour. Despite how good it was for the garden, was it worth the soaking, for both me and my kit? See for yourself and if the shinny leaves and delicate flowers don’t lift your spirits, have a word with […]

Warm winds and a tee shirt wander around Black Church rock and Hartland headland in the ancient woodlands looking for bluebells. Using the Mitakon 35mm f0.95, love this lens but it is such hard work, haha, keeps you honest tho Mitikkon!!

Wishing you an Early Spring Projeckt 21

March 10, 2021

Your mum’s an early spring project. As lockdown eases, especially at weekends with the Swindon hordes descending on our beautiful beatch, I’m taking my exercise along the old ways of the parish to avoid the crowds. First spring has come, a welcome visitor, as it often does in the doldrums of February, and we look […]

The story behind the photos

In the beautiful North Devon Calendar 2021. This is the twentieth year that I’ve made a calendar, the 2000 version was a single A4 card page and featured a picture of Andy Irons (the famous Hawaiian surfer who came to Cornwall for a contest in 1999). In those days I was a freelance photographer and […]

Beautiful North Devon Calendar 2021

November 17, 2020

It’s here! After a tedious lead up, mainly due to the current situation, I am pleased to announce that the new calendar has arrived. This years edition has a different feel to it and is perhaps, more atmosphereic that previous calendars. The reason for this is of course due to the first lockdown.  This meant that […]

The colours of Autumn

November 7, 2020

Autumn, the season of melancholy and mellow fruitfulness is for many such a sad time of year. Summer is a distant memory, the nights draw in and the chill returns to your breath. However, the last hoorah of nature before the winter lockdown is such a joyous time of the year for photographers but it […]

Giant Deadly Flamingo Sunsets

Untitled (Giant Deadly Flaming Flamingos)   As lockdown slowly eases, And our splendid isolation is breached. By hordes of infected second-home owners, And their flamingo rings at the beach:  We anxiously await the second-wave of contagion. Not by some valkyrie or eeauch.  But by some  Condescending men with Audis and shorts, coloured peach .   With […]
