Mosquito Hike

Just a quick blog today - managed to get in a short hike at the Forest, mainly for exercise, but to also get some photographs if the conditions allowed for something interesting. We hiked down into the woodland from the car park, hoping to see some wild deer, but none were about - I think... Continue Reading →

My Best Photograph Yet

A hike around the reservoir was the order of the day, so I took the camera bag just in case, as seems to be the 'norm' these days. We arrived a bit earlier than usual, wary that the evenings are drawing in a bit, and sunset is now around 8.15pm. We parked the car in... Continue Reading →

Quick Forest Hike

We decided last minute to go to the Forest for a hike, I took the camera in case an opportunity arose, but I wasn't expecting much to be honest as the sky was quite bright and clear and the forecast was for it to remain that way. We parked at the top of the hill... Continue Reading →

Estuary Sunset Walk

Back to my hometown for the weekend just gone, and I had checked the tides times and seen we were due to have a reasonable tide still present at sunset in the estuary. Near my home town, I am limited to access to the sea wall to photograph, and knew that I may not get... Continue Reading →

Failed Cornfield Sunset

Last night, we drove specifically to a cornfield we had seen on one of our early morning walks. I had checked the positioning of the sunset on my Sunset AR app, and it looked good to return to photograph the sunset when the conditions allowed. It wasn't a long walk from where we managed to...

First August Sunset

Forecast looked good, sunshine and cloud forecast from 7pm to 10pm, so we headed off to the reservoir to photograph our first sunset of August. We arrived around 7.15pm, as we had a slightly longer hike to get to a new spot. I had identified a new area on Google maps where it looked like... Continue Reading →

Saturday Local Hike

Back to our local hikes, first time in ages as it had been too hot for so long now. We decided on an extended route, parking in our usual spot but venturing around some new roads. We hadn't gone more than a few yards from the car, when we stumbled upon a pair of roe... Continue Reading →

Birling Gap &Seven Sisters

We finally made it!! We had been planning to do a trip to this location for weeks, and various things had got in the way up until this night. We had vaccine side effects, bad stomachs, bad weather, and too many tourists all stopping us over the last few weeks - but finally we were... Continue Reading →

Plans Ruined with Amazing Results

Yet again we were meant to be heading for the coast, but yet again our plans were ruined - this time by the weather. The wind had picked up, and was blowing right off the water at 30-40mph, meaning any sort of photography would have been impossible on the exposed cliffs. We had to think... Continue Reading →

Reservoir Sunset

We had been planning to visit the coast, but we were forced into a late change of plan as my partner wasn't feeling her best. We instead elected to go to Bewl Water as it meant we could get a nice vantage point to watch the sunset without having a huge hike to get there,... Continue Reading →
