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: St Ives, Cornwall

Well, well. November 7th since I last posted anything here. Excuses and explanations? Um... no, not really. It's just part of the ebb and flow of life. At this time of year we are more likely to be battered, drenched or frozen by weather that makes strolling around or generally loitering with a camera, without… Continue reading Thursday Doors: St Ives, Cornwall

Thursday Doors: Boat Houses

This could be an occasional niche within the niche that is Thursday Doors. So that's a nice niche niche then. Sorry. Anyway, Cornwall, being almost an island on the south-western end of the British Isles mainland, is of course a seafaring place and a lot of the small villages grew up, both in population and… Continue reading Thursday Doors: Boat Houses

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

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
