Too Good

I was going to post this B&W shot on my store, to be available to purchase. However, I was just checking it finely for spot imperfections and I kept coming across little tiny black specks to be spotted out, just in case anyone ordered a print large enough to be able to see them. Boscastle-Crackington… Continue reading Too Good

Hogweed and Competence

I see that the last time I posted an in-focus straight-ish picture was around April.I'll just sort that out then. Hogweed in flower (great for the insects). I'm sure some bits of it are in focus. Perfectly fine picture, but probably not an unusual picture in any way. The only enjoyment I can personally take… Continue reading Hogweed and Competence

Rusey Cliffs and Lundy

When I went out yesterday it was a little cloudy but bright. As I got to the beginning of the track that leads out to the coast path, where the view over the ocean opens out, I could see that there was a weather front just threatening to travel up the Bristol Channel and perhaps… Continue reading Rusey Cliffs and Lundy

Thursday Doors: Many Storms

This week has largely been grey, windy, wet, and frankly making me feel like getting started on the hibernation that bears are known for. Officially the UK was in the grips of Storm Ali over the last couple of days with gusts of wind exceeding 80mph in the north of the country. Not hurricane or… Continue reading Thursday Doors: Many Storms

Barn Doors (for people)

The sort of doors that I'm likely to come across are those in a more rural and less populated setting. Basically, I'm not often found in areas where a lot more humans like to gather, build towns or cities and live fairly close to each other and therefore the exposure to fancy doors protecting the… Continue reading Barn Doors (for people)

Abandoned Airfield

I live very near to Davidstow Moor airfield. It's not a working airfield these days; more a flat and high altitude set of remnants of one, with some current usage by hobbyist model aircraft and microlight flyers, learner drivers and some more umm... different hanging about in less social hours. The airfield played an active part… Continue reading Abandoned Airfield

Church on Sunday

The title only refers to the fact that it is Sunday when I'm posting this picture of a church; in fact I'll be down at the beach scouring it for plastic and fishing industry waste and cleaning it up rather than sitting in church singing and asking for any supernatural help with the problems we… Continue reading Church on Sunday

Thursday Doors

There is a thing I keep seeing on Twitter where people post pictures of doors. It's a running series by Norman Frampton on his blog at Norm 2.0 "Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world." This may have started… Continue reading Thursday Doors

Offshore Mists

Yesterday morning was looking to bring a fine day. Even by 9am on a Sunday families were already occupying their little territories of the receding beach at Crackington as the tide was heading for one of its high points for the day. I had headed down there a little earlier than normal to give myself… Continue reading Offshore Mists

The Exe Estuary

Regular visitors will notice that I have refreshed the look of the site again. Sorry about that, you must think I'm a bit of a tinkerer. And more than a little indecisive. You'd be right. In explanation, although happier that the image size was larger I was still not happy with the theme that made… Continue reading The Exe Estuary

View to Brown Willy from Showery Tor

At 420 meters above sea level, Brown Willy is the high point of Cornwall. Its name of course is guaranteed to make small immature British boys giggle until they are at least immature 50 year old men. American ones would get the same effect if it was called Brown Pecker. There was a movement by… Continue reading View to Brown Willy from Showery Tor
