My first visit was back back in January 2012, just after I had purchased my Fujifilm HS20. From that very first day one of my favourite birds was Dollar, a baldContinue reading “Dollar – The Bald Eagle”

English Heritage 2nd Year of Membership – still bloody great value

Re-posting of an old blog from 2013. We have a family membership for English Heritage. We originally joined back in 2011, and apart from a couple of years in the middle we have been members ever since.

Peterborough Cathedral

Those of you who have read much of my blog will know that one of my favourite subjects to photograph is Peterborough Cathedral. Right in the centre of Peterborough, it is something of a hidden gem. I thought it was time to show some more photos of the Cathedral and that now might be aContinue reading “Peterborough Cathedral”

My Good, Bad, and Ugly Competition Results from ViewBug

I enter quite a lot of competitions, most of which I don’t hear anything from as my photos don’t get chosen for the finalists. There’s no problem with that, that’s just how these things work. But one of the sites I am a member of – ViewBug – now does an interesting thing with competitions you enter.Continue reading “My Good, Bad, and Ugly Competition Results from ViewBug”

The Shuttleworth Collection Military Pageant 2015

Back in July I went to The Shuttleworth Collection for the Military Pageant with Tom, a friend from my university days who is also into his photography. It was our first time at the collection, let alone an airshow there, so whilst expecting a good time I did not know exactly what to expect other thanContinue reading “The Shuttleworth Collection Military Pageant 2015”
