Apocalypse Woods

There is a section at the end of Davidstow Woods that my wife and I always jokingly call 'Apocalypse Woods'. For some reason, the stand of trees there is just a collection of mostly dead but still upright trunks, standing in a boggy section of ground that is slowly regenerating around it, and so that… Continue reading Apocalypse Woods

Return to the Beach

The summer season ban for taking dogs on the beach has lifted now. I have been busy with running the chalet rental but I do manage to take a walk or two down there among the rocks, pools, seaweed and sand again now. The rocks in the foreground here aren't always visible, it depends on… Continue reading Return to the Beach

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

Two Clifftop Views

The fields on the clifftops are no more or less productive than the inland ones, they just have a more spectacular background and there is always a cooling breeze running through the grasses and the crops. Clifftop Meadow Clifftop Wheat Field Both of theses images are now available on the Redbubble store, which I have… Continue reading Two Clifftop Views

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

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

Getting it all wrong accidentally

My last post detailed what I am doing with my camera in order to achieve some photographic abstract effects deliberately. I thought it would be good to describe - and also show a couple more pictures to illustrate - how I am just as capable of getting things wrong accidentally as anyone else is. Some background… Continue reading Getting it all wrong accidentally

Offshore Mists Two

I posted a straight black and white shot of the Cambeak headland at Crackington wearing its little offshore cloud yesterday. Regular followers will know I've been trying the alternative abstract intentional camera movement technique on pretty much everything as well, so of course I tried it here too. My alone time - well, at least… Continue reading Offshore Mists Two
