Salt’s Mill in Saltaire – a World Heritage Site – is only two miles as the crow flies from where I live and I go there all the time, often with my camera. It is rare though that I go there at night with my camera. I have mentioned in previous posts that a good […]Read more "Salt’s Mill By Night"
Whitby is one of my favourite places to visit and I have been there many times over the last few years. For such a small town it has a surprising number of locations at which a photographer could spend hours snapping away. From the Old Town, to the beach, to the Abbey, and of course […]Read more "Whitby Harbour"
At most places that I go to, such as Scarborough Castle in the pictures below, I take both film and digital cameras (a Nikon FE and a Nikon D80) both of which are getting a bit long in the tooth. The FE was made in 1982 and is as good as the day it was […]Read more "Nikon D7200 vs D80 (with a bit of FE)"
Earlier this year I wrote a post about how mirrorless cameras are the future and whether that future has already arrived for the majority of photographers.

Set high on the moors above the Bronte’s home village of Haworth in Yorkshire it is incredible to believe that people […]Read more "Top Withens"

The Tour de France gave us (and Yorkshire) a couple of days that we will never forget. Equally I am really proud that Yorkshire provided the Tour de France with a couple of days it will never forget.Read more "Tour de France in Yorkshire Revisited"
Aysgarth Falls are a stunning set of three waterfalls – the Upper, Middle, and Lower Falls – in Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales. Though the falls are not particularly high the River Ure passes over a series of limestone steps which are picturesque when the river level is low and very dramatic after a spate […]Read more "Aysgarth Falls"
The demolition of the Bradford and Bingley building which stands right in the centre of Bingley is now well under way and it looks like in a couple of weeks time all that will be left will be a large pile of rubble.Read more "Picking Over The Bones"
