Minimalist sunset experiments part 3. After hours Mill Rock Ripples In other news. It’s been a busy autumn but I’ve finally sent the Beautiful North […]

When the year gets older it starts wearing purple

Well that was a hectic summer, busy, busy, busy. Congestion, snarl-ups, queues and everyone wanted to head to the beach when the sun was out. It was mayhem. We can now embrace autumn in a slightly less frenetic mood. Small tortoiseshell Common Blue (male) Common Blue (female) Looking into Somerset from Devon and looking into […]

Summer; how it started..

July 10, 2021

With skylarks and fresh beech with dappled shade. Plenty of fences and warm valley floors. The cotton grass nodding in the bog and sheep taking cover in the shade, while children swim in the Barle. But the summer storms weren’t to be held back, and rain and mists descend.  so it’s back to the woodlands […]

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 […]

One of the best walks around Woolacombe at the moment is; up the donkey path to Twitchen wood and back down by the stream. Short, sweet and full of colour. The bluebells are the divas of the show but there are strong supporting roles, not least the heady smells and bright white flowers of the […]

That day, in the bay.

Devon-date 27/02/21. It’s a day we will remember for a long time, a top contender for day of the winter. Super clean long range swell kissed by gentle offshores. Big but handleable if you didn’t get caught out, blue skies and arctic temperatures. The little bay looking g(r)ate.. Rights into the pipe. A few lefts […]

There was alot going on in the run up to Christmas, with the usual stuff to do, some work and the release of my calendar, with all that entails including those fun daily trips to the Post Office.

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 […]

End of the summer sunsets

Woolacombe sunsets are a photographers dream. Big skies, big beach, big sand dunes and big tides. Foreground interest (usually dogs), mid ground (crashing waves or rocks at combesgate) and background – the magnificent light thrown up as our planet rotates away from the star that gives life to our galaxy. Here are a few of […]
