Purple rain on Exmoor

August 20, 2017


There’s been a lot of rain this summer. (Who’d have thought that when scientists said we would have warmer, wetter summers that we actually would?). Anyhow apart from making the tourists pissed off and having to plan when to mow the lawn, it has meant that north Devon is looking green and lush at the […]

April Projeck: Spring flowers

April 8, 2017


Down here in Devon, Spring seems to have arrived early this year. The rain in March has given way to April sunshine and stimulated a host of wild flowers to bloom; including bluebells and wild garlic.

Last of the Autumn gin

November 16, 2016

Bows and flows of angel hair

The Dirty Dozen

November 27, 2015


I’m not doing a calendar this year but if I was going to…. These are the shots that might have made it on to the printed page. The blog is formatted for mobile phone use but you really need to click on the images to view on a large screen. Big is best. So without […]

Golden brown & black carbon

November 8, 2015


Golden brown beech leaves taken over the past few days as the mild autumn continues with the help of a new lightweight Zomei carbon fibre tripod (updated first impressions review below). If you click on the pic it becomes even more wonderful. I dont very often do reviews, mainly because there are lots of very […]
