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

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

Sharp & Incoming at Crackington

Is anyone tired of abstract sea and waves pictures yet? A slight difference in this one.

This has given me an effect that I… Continue reading Sharp & Incoming at Crackington

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

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
