Winter morning’s in the New Forest never fail to delight. At this time of year the colours are rich and the morning skies are clear and crisp, a photographers dream.
Some early starts and late finishes have delivered some lovely sunrise and sun sets over the forest. The heather and the ponds make for great foregrounds, now I just need a well positioned pony in the picture but they are less predictable.
These photos are taken in the northern part of Hampshire’s New Forest and show the after effects of the storms that have hit us in July 2021. The sodden ground and the cloudy skies have typified this months walks across the forest.
The perfect storm hits Newhaven, East Sussex, UK as 55 mph winds and a 12 ft swell head down the English Channel.
Four seasons through my one lens is my collection of photographs depicting a year in photography and covers not only the four seasons but the disciplines of travel, sport and landscape photography.
Whilst we are in lockdown 2 and unable to play golf we are definitely missing the courses at their most colourful. What better time than now to walk the course with a camera bag rather than the normal golf bag? These were taken at East Berkshire Golf Course in Crowthorne, UK when the afternoon sun starts to throw the long shadows down the fairways.
Autumn walks & misty mornings are a photographer’s dream. These were taken at Virginia Water in the UK on a November morning during lock down 2.
Newhaven, East Sussex, UK hit by 50mph winds, hail, rain and the swell from the autumn Atlantic storm, a perfect day for a photographer!
With the east and west coast only quarter of an hour’s drive apart the photographer’s golden hour is full of opportunities and stunning views.
There is only a few weeks each year when you can see the rising sun through the Durdle’s doorway so when the weather forecast and the ‘Clear Outside’ weather App tells you that the sky will be totally clear you know it is time for a 4:30 start to get to the beach on time. However the weather forecast can be wrong! Nevertheless Durdle Door’s magic is still there on cloudy mornings….

This must be one of the most amazing places in the world, but get there very early before half of China arrive and stand infant of your lens!
Cambodia’s story is one of extremes; horror and atrocities blended with the peace and tranquility of Buddhism, a care free attitude to transport and life with few rules and little frustrations, solitude and friendships, and of course – life on the river with its food source and its pollution. Hopefully each of these photos, paired with the one next to it, tells you a story.
The simplicity and relaxed nature of the the lives along the banks of the river mask the poverty and lack of basic necessities in which they live. However I do not think I have met a more content and welcoming nation.
Wondering how to tackle the cold snowy winter? Dream of where you’ve been.
Cornwall, Rhodes, Venice and Minorca
