Canyon

Some evenings everything is perfect. This evening at the Grand Canyon was one of them.  The sun set beautifully, the sky was clear, the remaining light picked out the crags and crannies of the canyon sides.  It was a fantastic sight to see.  On the upper rim a fire had started earlier in the day […]

Serenity

The beauty of the last light of day compliments the soft, slow rustle of the barley as it flows in the wind. Captured in the agricultural fields of Stamfordham, Northumberland this was a stunning night.  I had watched the barley grow taller day by day as I drove past it and pegged in my mind […]

Into the Haze

The wonders of Ireland are many but its beauty lies in the subtle textures and ruggedness of its landscape.  This image from Malin Head, the most northerly point of the island looks back inland rather than out to the Atlantic and shows to land falling off into the distance, mountains just disappearing into the haze […]

Stunning Glenveagh

The drive to Glenveagh leaves your jaw dropping many times as you turn corners and are presented with tabletop mountains, sweeping vistas and rugged horizons.  When you get to the area near the […]

Iceland

Iceland is one of the most intriguing places I have ever been.  Though we didn’t get to explore the entire island it has left in me a great desire to go back and see more. From the imposing architecture and interesting sculptures to the inhospitable, snow covered landscapes and Icelandic ponies it was a beautiful […]

Kielder Forest

Kielder forest park is one of my favourite places, period! The isolation and desolate beauty of the place is tempered by the stunning views over the largest reservoir in Europe.  It certainly should be on everyone’s must see list. 55.2339351 -2.580306000000064

St Marys Island

St Mary’s Island is one of the North East’s most idyllic seafront locations.  The weather changes every hour, the causeway washes out stranding unsuspecting walkers for hours and some gorgeous storms whip in around the lighthouse. The collection of images here were all photographed and edited with a Sony Xperia Z1 mobile phone. 55.071667 -1.4497220000000652
