A walk in woodland is always a joy. From the translucent greens of spring, to the multi-coloured feast of autumn. For the quietness. And for the woodland itself – the straight trunks that create a kind of order and depth. … Continue reading

The White Coat

How often do you shoot an image, get back home and load the image onto your screen, and see something you never thought was in the frame when you pressed the shutter. That’s what happened with this shot taken earlier … Continue reading

Table Talk

What goes on above one’s head is often missed. And when I see something like this, there’s always that little niggle that wonders if one of them will look down and see me pointing my camera up at them. These … Continue reading

Window art
