Deserted Hotel

Came across a deserted and randalised hotel while up north. This was taken through a smashed safety glass door which acted as as diffusing filter.

Wolf Pack


Wolves jostling for dominance - just like domestic dogs, the top dog will climb on others and the under dog hangs the head.

Wolf brothers


First of some pictures of a European wolf pack. Two are obviously brothers with identically marked faces.

Hear the Echo of Boots


One of the cobbled passageways leading from the rows of houses to the Mill complex in Halifax - finely polished from hundreds of boots.

Morning light over Northern Fells


This was the view 180 degrees from the lefthand photo below - all the drama that morning was towards the sun.

Change in the Weather




Two different days, just about the same viewpoint and time in the morning but very different weather conditions.

Views of Halifax
















Spent night in Travelodge in Halifax, which is part of the renovated Dean Clough complex. Reminded of the work of Bill Brandt (right is one of his images from Halifax). Treated my image to give a similar gritty feel. Not enough time to take many photographs - a project for next visit.

Autumn Stream


The colours were very variable through the Lake District. Found this lovely stream near Glen Ridding where the leaves were still on the trees

Laccaria amethystea





Two views of Amethyst deceiver taken at Brandon

Toadstool from Outing to Brandon



This is one of my favourite shots from today's wander in the beechwoods at Brandon.

I think it is Coprinus lagopus but would like confirmation.

Weekend for Autumn Colours


The autumn colours seem to be at their best in Cambridgeshire at the moment. As high winds are reported to be on their way, now is the time to record this year's yellows and golds.

Images for Recipe Book














I am in the process of producing some illustrations for a recipe book to be sold to help fund a toilet for our Parish Church in Toft.
These need to be in monochrome suitable for printing on text pages.

Liverpool 20 years on





I knew I had a photograph from the late 1980s of Mersey from behind the Albert Dock so I attempted to get the same viewpoint. The most interesting difference is the proliferation of safety fences. In the older photo on the right ther were no barriers other than the chain fence. Now there is a solid railing fence and in places extra barricades - a sign of our mitigation-mad culture? The three dockyard cranes at the Cammell Laird Shipyard at Birkenhead were blown up in November 2003 when the dockyard closed.
