Trial and Error II

Last night was another venture in to the unknown. This time, it was a visit to Fowey Regatta to see the Red Arrows. Now I have taken photos of moving objects before but these would be moving a good deal faster. Having been doing so much landscape work using manual settings, it was a bit of a c...

Trial and Error

Last Monday night was adventure into the relative unknown - how to take fireworks photos? A bit of background reading, gave an insight into exposure times and aperture and a starting point. So off to Fowey Regatta we went, well in advance, to allow time to set up the tripod and the composition in...

The most recent is to renovate the muddy clay path that ran alongside Carmears Leat and it has revealed remnants of the tramway system built by Joseph Treffry linking his int...

Cornish Luggers 2012

For the second year running, I visited the Cornish luggers festival at St Ives. Organised by the St Ives Jumbo Association, it gives the opportunity of seeing these vessels that were once closely associated with St Ives and Cornwall.

So I made another visit to the Luxulyan Valley to try and record more the Industrial Heritage therein. With works ongoing to repair leaks and upgrade the paths along the leats, the...

On the doorstep

So often what is on your doorstep is overlooked, I used to live within 5 miles of the radio telescope at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire and yet I never visited it. It could be seen from most parts of the county, an iconic shape in the distance. I now live a couple of miles from the beautifully wooded...

Despite have worked shifts for the best part of 23 years, I still dislike early shifts. But on Friday, I made it out with the camera for the sunrise. Well actually, I didn't quite see a sunrise, more cloud than predicted on the weather forecast but it continued that feeling of well being, out and a...

The buzz is coming back...

My birthday treat, to celebrate on a gorgeous day, I headed over to Holywell Bay to do some exploring of possibilities. I had only been once previously and just within the dunes, so it was off up the coast path towards Penhale Point. Strong sunlight may not be the most ideal scenario for producing f...

How time flies...

Nearly eight months have elapsed since my last blog, how time flies. Many things have happened in that time and mostly nothing to do with photography. Well, the bleak mid winter has passed and things are looking up again, spring has sprung and I eventually went out with the camera in April and w...

Luggers Part 3

Things are looking up. Last night I had an enquiry from the St Ives Jumbo Association regards usage of the image of the pair of Jumbos/Luggers. Could this be a positive start of things to come? www.stivesjumbo.com

Luggers St Ives Part 2

Well, some made it in sail, though I think the windy weather conditions precluded against more taking part. I read Conrad's blog the other day 'Not spectacular but nice enough' And this image is one that falls into that category for me. Maybe it will go in the gallery eventually but I wo...

The result of frustration

After the other night's frustrating evening, this was one of the images from Lundy Cove. I'll be honest and say I'm not overly convinced by the foreground rocks, too dominant possibly, but there is scope here from a location that I have not seen in print previously. ;)
