“Everything exists, everything is true, and the earth is only a little dust under our feet” No apologies for quoting William Butler (one of my fav poets) but this autumn trip to Tibbetts has sort of become a fixture in my calendar year and the early October weather can be at lottery, previously it has […]

Adventures without Light

Another quick trip to the island on a solo mission to get some shots of prime-time nesting sea birds in full swing. When you book a June trip the last thing that you expect is a helicopter ride over to the island because of bad weather, but we live in worrying times for our climate. […]

As storm Freya rattles the windows here at home in north Devon, Ive finally managed to process some photos of a trip to Lundy in the unseasonably warm and calm February sunshine of early spring 2019.

Always nice to receive presents, some are ‘nice’ and others are ‘just what I wanted’. However this one (a christmas present fro my kids) was probably in the ‘if a well known beer brewer did presents’ category: A midweek Easter trip to Tibbetts. Wahooo, the third trip of the year so far… It was a […]

There are many different types of accommodation for visitors to Lundy Island. From the grandeur of Millcombe House to the stark remoteness of Tibbetts, from the romance of the Old Lighthouse to the practicality of the radio room. None however can boast a view like that from from the massive window at Castle Cottage. It […]
