Calendar 2022, the Misty beach shot. I had a twitter comment from a customer about this years Calendar saying it is ….. “super. A slightly different take, (and) not too chocolate boxey.” I really appreciate it when someone likes my work (naturally) but also  it is so satisfying when someone actually ‘gets it’, that is, […]

Nothing lasts forever but these Sessile oaks in the East Lyn valley below Watersmeet have been there for ‘nearly forever’, or at least a very long time.

It’s that time of year again. Over the last month I have trawled through all the photos that I’ve taken in the last year and chosen thirteen for the new Calendar. It’s always difficult to envisage what the final product will look like until you actually hold one in your hand. So it was a […]

The mild autumn (so far) and lack of strong winds here in north Devon has meant that the beech trees have held onto their leaves a little longer than they normally do.

We’ve all got a bit too comfortable with our weather prediction apps. “it’s not what they said” has replaced “it’s that fine rain that soaks you through” in our everyday greetings. Well at least where I live anyway. So it was at a promise of big skies that prompted a early autumnal visit to the […]

I remember, Septembers in love

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.. […]
