A wee corner of Ullswater in a lovely bit of mist.
The Secret Life of Trees
I was truly fascinated by the exposed roots and the almost gang like grouping of these trees which gave an air of togetherness mixed with a wee bit of evil if I'm honest.... Shot at 70mm and f5.6 to give that little bit of depth and to just give it a slightly surreal feel. Single RAW file processed in LR5 and Silver Efex.
Wall Holm Island, Ullswater
A misty day on Ullswater. Not as early as you'd expect....
Dawn Mist, Skye
Looking along the ridge just after dawn. I'd run up and down two or three slopes trying to get an angle I liked when all of a sudden I was faced with this view.
A nicely arranged collection of Silver Birches at Tilberthwaite
A long exposure of Neist Point. The wee figures on top of the hill are part of a group of tourists with a Rabbies tour led by the inimitable Ross Hutton.
A small section of woodland at Edenhall in the Eden Valley
One of those occasions when you just have to abandon the car, jump out and take the shot. Hail and bright sunshine combining over Glencoyne Farm to make a slightly surreal landscape.

The Stand Off
A group of curious youngsters just after dawn near Kirkoswald
A wander in the woods
A Rainy Day in Iceland
A horrendously wet and wild day at Vik. I was out of the car for about 30 seconds and still got soaked. I actually took this sheltering beside the car.
Looking across to Deepdale from just below Boredale Hause
Approaching the Rialto
I was on my way to St Marks Square for dawn when I saw the potential in the dark, wet streets for a more personal view.
I look up to him, but down on him....
Three local ponies standing nicely for their photo as I passed by.
A Highland Cow baby with a rather cute fringe.
A reworking of an older one using Silver Efex and LR4. Previous one suffers from too much noise (although it looks ok very small...)
A wee stand off at Dacre. I've always liked the dynamics of the wood and the lone tree and I was lucky enough to catch it with some nice light.
A misty morning down at Temple Sowerby, Cumbria. I just liked the arrangement of the trees when viewed from a certain angle. The mist assisted in supplying definition and depth.
Tree and Cloud
A tree at Dacre thats always held an attraction for me. The layout of the land and the contours just gives the scene a nice balance. This was taken with the Nikon 105 f2 DC which is allegedly a great portrait lens but works pretty well on landscapes.
Long exposure on Great Mell Fell in fairly strong wind.
Tree and Bales
A bonny morning in the fields near Great Salkeld on a misty September morning in the Eden Valley
The Sun only Shines
Clouds over The Liffey
Alone in a Crowd
I happened to be wandering through Reykjavik one February afternoon when I saw this rather attractive arrangement of trees in a garden. The background is a pebble dashed wall. I just liked the scene. The dynamics of the six trees drew me in and shooting it with a longer lens added some ambiguity to the background.
Looking down Ullswater on a wet and wild afternoon.
A misty morning at Temple Sowerby.
The Road to Row
A bonny morning out in the Eden Valley as a hoar frost started to lift.
