Dollar – The Bald Eagle

Anyone who follows my Facebook page or even follows my posts here knows, one of my favourite places to go is the Raptor Foundation. 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”

Places I Miss Because of COVID-19 #3

With all the uncertainty at the moment and lock downs as a result of COVID-19 I thought – as have a number of others – it might be nice to shine a spotlight on places that you miss going to because you are currently not allowed. Part of the reason for sharing the places IContinue reading “Places I Miss Because of COVID-19 #3”

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”

Weekly Photo Challenge: H20

The weekly photo challenge from 07 October 2016 was water: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/h2o/   As subjects go it is fairly straight forward, so how best to utilise it. Water of course is everywhere, so there are a number of things that can be done, most of which I have not to tried, but here are a few photos thatContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: H20”

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge (from a long time ago, trying to get back into the swing of things so picking up a few of the previous challenges): https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/eye-spy/   So ‘Eye Spy’ as a theme. Open to a certain amount interpretation. Amongst otherthings I could base it around eyes, or perhaps justContinue reading “Eye Spy”

Through My Eyes – My First Exhibition

Just over a month ago now – time seems to have got away from me – I had my first exhibition. It was held in Bewiched Coffee in Peterborough where I have had some items on the walls for some time now.     This was originally at the suggestion of the branch manager ofContinue reading “Through My Eyes – My First Exhibition”

Something New – Starry Night

Last night was very clear (for a little while at least) so I decided to try and photograph something that I had been meaning to try for some time – the night sky. Being in the northern hemisphere we don’t get the best views of the Milky Way and I knew that we were too close to Peterborough inContinue reading “Something New – Starry Night”

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”

Vulcan XH558 – End of an Era

I have always been fascinated by aircraft of all sorts, whether it be the older type where the science of flight was still in its infancy or the modern day aircraft ranging from the small and fast to the large heavy lifters with everything in between, both civilian and military. As a result, one ofContinue reading “Vulcan XH558 – End of an Era”
