    I took this on a misty winter morning in 2014 on a photo walk by the river Wye. This avenue of trees has always interested me as it must once have been a main path. In the intervening 10 years a couple of these trees have had to be cut down and the avenue doesn?t look the same. Shot with a Fuji X20, f4.0, 1/680s, ISO100.

    This photo was randomly taken on a day out at Tenby. The day was beautiful and my children had brought there camera's with them so we decided to take random photos and this one was just by sheer luck I took this one. There was no editing done and I love taking photos in black and white because it feels that there is more depth in a black and white photo of the conditions are right

    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
