Olu Deniz, Turkey

21 Jan

Whilst visiting Olu Deniz we decided to paraglide from a height of roughly 2000m from Babadag Mountain. The experience was fantastic and the views were phenomenal.

Words and Woodland Photography

18 Apr

This afternoon I went to the woods for a walk with the dog, as it was a bright sunny day I had intended to take my camera with me but I forgot it! Instead I collected leaves, bark and sticks to photograph at home. I even found a rusted bottle top, some pieces of sandstone and a few Celandines. Once home I went out to my studio with a stack of newspapers, magazines and leaflets to use as backgrounds for the photographs. Half an hour later I had roughly 100 images! Here are some of my favourites.

Pooley Bridge, Ullswater

4 Feb

Only a short drive from home is Pooley Bridge, a small village on the edge of Ullswater. A few weeks ago I walked from Pooley Bridge along the lakeside path towards Howtown with our dog Pip, taking photographs along the way. There was a slight covering of snow on the ground and it was a cold but bright day, below are some of the images I took.

Richmond, Yorkshire

31 Aug

Today we decided to go on a family day out before my younger sister returns to university on Monday. We went to Richmond, a very pretty town in Yorkshire. First we walked around the town and castle, stopping for a nice cup of tea. We then enjoyed an afternoon in the sunshine having a picnic beside the river. I took a few photographs but hope to return to the town in the future, perhaps on a Sunday, which is when they hold craft fairs.

Ullswater in Summer

31 Aug

A few weeks ago we did get a glimpse of summer so I spent day at the lake with some friends. We played golf, had a picnic lunch and hired a rowing boat to explore some of the islands on Derwentwater. Below are some images from our day out.

Rhodes Old Town

8 Jun

I also travelled to the old town of Rhodes, shown below. The old town is well worth a visit with charming, winding alley ways, beautiful architecture and bustling shops and cafés.
