When it’s hot n’bothered and crowded with kooks, and, even your little ‘secret’ beach has been named in a Sunday supplement as a top one hundred secret beaches to escape the crowds too but, is full of Sunday supplement reading visitors in peach shorts and Waitrose attitudes.

Cooling down on the East river

July 17, 2022

Here’s a few abstracts and mood shots from this mornings bimble along the East Lyn. Even by summer standards, there’s not a lot of water in the old girl but the deep pools are still there and plenty of locals were cooling off in them. It’s prime fishing season too on this ‘catch & release’ […]

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. That was until storm Arwen wreaked havoc on one end of November Friday night party that got out of hand – and blew the friggin doors off!. There […]

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 […]
