Just before the start of the last Covid-19 lockdown, I was invited by an allotment society to capture images of their local wildlife.
I flew into Kerry in a storm. The coastal landscapes and skies on the Dingle Peninsula have been spectacular and a real challenge to photograph when you’re being battered by the elements.
I had just two full days staying in Whitby and the weather was bright and sunny. Too bright and sunny?
What a week in France, once again! As well as some macrophotography, I was lucky enough to take in the Tour de France and also witness the spectacular firework display at Carcassonne, commemorating Bastille Day.
Images from the first stage of the mens’ 2019 Tour de Yorkshire, which took place in torrential rain for much of the day. I was about 500 metres from the summit of Baggaby Hill, just outside Warter in East Yorkshire.
I spent a week with some photography friends on the Dingle Peninsula in southwest Ireland recently. Having arrived when the temperatures were in the ‘high teens’, I was soon reminded of why the coastline is so green and rugged, with only the Atlantic Ocean between me and America!
This is the second time that I’ve stayed in a friend’s villa in Italy and I’m starting to appreciate why they chose the Abruzzo region, and it’s not just because it’s cheaper than buying in Tuscany and Umbria.
In January 2017, I set off on a journey around the world, starting at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. My objective was to photograph the people, landscapes and wildlife as I circumnavigated the globe – returning four months later, once again to the prime meridian.
