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 […]

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 […]

A heavy dump on top

Pretty in white and a joy to photograph Exmoor is a special place in the snow, but it can get dodgy on the narrow and often un-gritted roads, especially if it snows while you’re out wandering. In these conditions it is proper 4 wheel drive territory but even then, you have to have your ‘josh […]

Lundy Rona: What’s hot, n’not.

It’s been an unusual summer in more ways than one way but hardest to bare has been the lack of opportunist day, and camping trips, to Lundy Island. The Motor Ship (MS) Oldenburg, that normally packs 267 people on board, is now limited to 90 due to social distancing restrictions and unless you have booked […]

And I feel fine

While all this Covid ineptitude is going down by our government, life goes on in this beautiful village that I am lucky live in on the North Devon coast. There’s no visitors, which makes for a mahooosive difference. It’s great for us to enjoy our home, but for many of my friends who run seasonal […]

Another year another dollar. I’ve been involved in the British Universities Surf Championships since the the early eighties, first as a judge and as event photographer, then as head judge and now as Contest Director. It’s a bloody nightmare of a comp to organise, squeezing over 350 university surfers into a contest with a small […]

Chasing shadows up on the roof

It’s ‘heather’ time on Exmoor, mid to late August, and the stags are in full, soft velvet before it imminently sheds, to reveal their battle amour and the abruptly hard new-season antlers in preparation for the autumn rut. Rut, rut, rutting. It can be a fractious and emotional time as the new flood of hormones […]

Everyone loves Puffins and that’s because they are photogenic, quirky, have a rainbow beak and exquisite facial feathers, but their most endearing characteristic is that they seem to be dumber than dumb, in a sort of Charlie Chaplin type way (not in a stupid type way; most endearing. However they are not the only birds […]
