It’s here! After a tedious lead up, mainly due to the current situation, I am pleased to announce that the new calendar has arrived. This years edition has a different feel to it and is perhaps, more atmosphereic that previous calendars. The reason for this is of course due to the first lockdown.  This meant that […]

The colours of Autumn

November 7, 2020

Autumn, the season of melancholy and mellow fruitfulness is for many such a sad time of year. Summer is a distant memory, the nights draw in and the chill returns to your breath. However, the last hoorah of nature before the winter lockdown is such a joyous time of the year for photographers but it […]

Another circular walk on Exmoor and this time it’s a classic, or the classic. Up Bossington hill. Starting at the iconic Selworthy Church, which is still periodically coated with a mixture of lime and tallow to protect it from the elements, making the distinctive white building visible for miles around.

It’s been such a lovely summer, in fact almost magical, however as it draws to a close there is a last chance to enjoy it when most of the visitors have gone home. It’s early September and what better place for some peace and tranquility than Exmoor. Exmoor: still stuck in the fifties; like an […]

Escape to Exmoor

May 27, 2019

Every now and then you need to get away. Sometimes you didn’t even know that you needed to get away until you actually do it. Away from traffic, work, politics, shopping and the fraught treadmill of daily life. Back to basics and immersed in the natural world, escaping modern life and hiding in an obscure […]
