Let there be light

Off to Tromso, Northern Norway in the morning in the hope of snapping the Aurora Borealis. Fingers crossed that we find the switch.

French Alps

2014 got off to a good start with a trip to Villard Reculas in the French Alps. The plan had been to get snowy landscapes and skiers in action but the call of the slopes was almost too much and I spent far too long skiing and not enough time with my camera. On every trip I like to come back a little wiser and this trip was no exception, mainly my off piste skiing needs to be a lot better if I'm going to carry a camera on my back.
This shot is somewhere I stumbled across on my little adventures off the beaten track.

There are a few more in the Landscapes section of my site.

On Top of the World (well France at least)

It's been a while still my last trip to the mountains, so I decided to put that write and have headed to the Alps to spend a couple of weeks with my family walking in the hills. I've obviously got my camera with me so hopefully will get a few snaps especially as the weather has been so great.

Site Update

It's taken me a while but I've finally got round to posting a few shots from Flying Legends and RIAT which I've posted in the Airshow section.

That Red Barn again

As I was heading down to Cornwall for work, I took the opportunity to call by the Red Barn at Emsworthy on Dartmoor just in case it was worth a snap.
Throughout the journey down the M5, the skies had been very dramatic which was encouraging, but as soon as I got near Emsworthy, all the definition in the sky disappeared and the rain started. Luckily there was a brief gap in the weather and I managed one shot before getting soaked.
I'll be back.

Spring in Scotland

As I had a few days leave owing to me and my family were all rapped up with school revision etc, I decided to spend a few days in and around Rannock Moor near Glen Coe.
Rannock moor is a really remote and dramatic place and from the photos I've seen of it, It can be a spectacular venue for photography as long as the rain holds off. Bizarrely rain wasn't my problem, clear blue skies were my curse; I was hoping for stormy clouds!
Anyway, I had a great time on my lonesome and hope to be heading back there in the Autumn.

Train Spotting

The weekend of the 25th - 27th Jan 2013 saw the Great Central Railway hold their Winter Steam Gala. Having never been to such an event before (and also having bugger all else to do) Laurie Hughes and I went along.
I still can't come to terms with being a train spotter but steam trains in the snow was something special.
Thanks to everyone who made us feel welcome, though I have no idea what any of you were talking about most of the time.
Shots from the day are on the website.
