I live in a small market town on the border of the lovely Yorkshire Dales, and a stones throw from the English Lake District. Apart from their obvious beauty, these areas can have a certain wildness about them which I try to bring out in my writing and photographs.
Landscapes have been my subject of choice for many years, maybe it is to do with me spending most of my free time in these areas walking, scrambling, climbing and caving. I prefer to photograph the ‘grit’ of the earth rather than the ‘picture postcard’ – although I do have some of these too. I like the secret ‘off the beaten track’ areas where few people go and you just have the curlew or sheep for company.
I am interested in the prehistoric stone circles, tombs and other artefacts which abound on the moors and I spend a lot of time researching and photographing them.
I hope that keeping a blog will focus me to produce better photographs, or maybe be more selective on what I display – but overall I would like to it to help me be a better photographer and writer.
Thanks for viewing and I hope you enjoy the show!
