The view belongs to everyone

September 6, 2015


Love these dreamy pix taken on a clear evening with the long tom (600mm f4 IS) from the top of Exmoor, mostly hand held. Some views are over 50 miles away, the Brecon Becons, Llantwit Major and The Old Light on Lundy. Definatly worth a click to see if you can see see see. Thanks […]

Grom Dawn Patrol

June 4, 2015


Stardate; early June. Planet; Woolacombe high tide. Yesterdays swell has cleaned up, not perfect waves but with such gorgeous light it would be rude not to dust off the 600mm f4. Add to that a bunch of surf-starved frothing groms (old & young) and it was worth the 5am alarm. Canon 5D mk 3 + […]

Where Exmoor meets the sea

July 12, 2014


The piece of coast from Combe Martin to Lynmouth is surely one of the most dramatic and magical places in North Devon. There’s so much stuff crammed into this little area that no wonder the rich, the famous and the romantics have made this coast where Exmoor meets the sea, their home now, in recent […]

Winter Wandering on Exmoor

January 23, 2014


A chance meeting, some like-minded friends and living in one of the most awesome places on planet earth conspired to a fabulous day out exploring Exmoor today. Thanks to the knowledge and skill of Neil Osmond, we travelled to places on ‘the moor’ that I have never seen in 35 years of living in this […]

Rhenish tower and storm waves

January 6, 2014


The bouys were going ballistic; pumping out all time numbers; 30 foot at 12 seconds. It was possibly the most anticipated swell of the social media age. The images and footage will keep us entertained through the dark days of January especially ‘depression monday’, ‘bankrupt tuesday’ and (my favourite) ‘alcoholic wednesday’. But anyway, this is […]

A Post about a Post

July 18, 2012


I don’t know why but photographing this place has become a bit of an obsession of mine. Maybe it is because I had so much fun here in the eighties, when there were a lot less surfers around and getting it with just one or two mates out was not unusual, especially during the week. […]

Marvellous March

March 29, 2012


What can I say that already hasn’t been said over the social networks this past week. A week of offshores, warm weather and some pretty bloody decent surf too; not bad for Blighty in the summer months, but in March – unheard of – but not unwelcome. An unusual combination of a seeming trapped low […]

Wooly Winter Wonderland

February 13, 2012


Winter surfing defines us as a surfing nation. Everything is cranked up a notch; the waves have more power and that combined with the extra rubber of a winter wettie make the paddle-outs long and hard – but the rewards are, of course worth it in an even more obviously clichéd way than this opening […]
