Pink Lundy

May 31, 2021

Lundy in the unseasonably cold month of May and it’s full of the bells, the blue bells (as witnessed in the previous post) but not just them. There is also another harbinger of summer;  the iconic coast-path flower, sea thrift, the prettiest pink ever. Also known as sea pinks, or the cliff rose, cushion pinks, sea […]

Blue Lundy

May 26, 2021

  With umpteen visits and ‘stays’ on Lundy over the last (hhummty) years, it seems that I have never had a May stopover, which seems logical as it’s a very busy time for the last of the serious surf contests and, preparation for the start of the holiday season in North Devon. Both have ran […]

The story behind the photos

December 19, 2020

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 […]

Beautiful North Devon Calendar 2021

November 17, 2020

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 […]

Lundy Rona: What’s hot, n’not.

October 18, 2020

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 […]

End of the summer sunsets

September 2, 2020

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 […]

Giant Deadly Flamingo Sunsets

May 19, 2020

Untitled (Giant Deadly Flaming Flamingos)   As lockdown slowly eases, And our splendid isolation is breached. By hordes of infected second-home owners, And their flamingo rings at the beach:  We anxiously await the second-wave of contagion. Not by some valkyrie or eeauch.  But by some  Condescending men with Audis and shorts, coloured peach .   With […]

Coos on the doorstep, seals in the combe and deer in the quarry.

The March trip to Lundy was an ideal time for testing my new bit of Fujifilm kit; the 200 mm f2. It comes with a matched 1.4x extender and is meant to be ‘stepping- razor’ sharp and all the lab charts agree, but is it ‘dangerous’ in a real world situation. Like in a sodden, […]

Tricked up Tibbetts

  We managed to squeeze in a a trip to Lundy before the lockdown. In what now seems a lifetime ago (writing this just 3 weeks later), in the second week of March we took the helicopter from Hartland International Heliport for a five day stay on the island. Tibbetts has had a major overhaul […]

As is the tradition with photographers at this time of year, we like to look back at the best/ most memorable photos that we’ve taken and so, here are what I consider to be my best work of 2019. Unlike a lot of photographers however, I also put my money where my mouth is and […]
