Raw Beauty – The Cairngorms

Filed in Wildlife, Workshops on Feb.02, 2019

The Cairngorms National Park in Scotland is a place that is truly stunning, with spectacular landscapes, snow capped peaks and breathtaking scenery. The Cairngorm plateau is the highest and coldest in Britain. You can still see snow in places in the summer, and in winter it is a place of raw beauty. The Cairngorms, known as Am Monadh Ruadh in Gaelic, are mountains that form part of the Grampians and are the most famous of the mountain ranges.

Our seasons are changing now from summer into autumn, the nights are drawing in and the light and colours are stunning as the sun becomes lower in the sky. Its a great time to be out with your camera, providing you with some of the most beautiful and intense colours of the year. The season of autumn for me is arguably one of the finest times of year to enjoy and view wildlife with this amazing mosaic of colour as the backdrop.

There a few places in the UK where you can experience the sights and sounds of nature any better than the North Norfolk coast during the Spring Tides that start in earnest from this month onward and for me herald the onset of the Autumn and Winter months. As the incoming tides submerge the whole area it pushes thousands of waders closer to the shoreline.

Wildlife Photography – Composition

Filed in Photography Tips, Workshops on Apr.23, 2018

Simplicity is often the key to composing a successful photograph, where a well composed image should never look cluttered, and the main focal point or subject should be obvious.

Dippers of the Dales

Filed in Places Of Interest, Workshops on Mar.24, 2018

My love of the Dipper started as a small boy, I’d catch two buses from my home with my bag packed with cold toast and a flask to get to Lathkill Dale, in the Peak District. Once I got there I’d sit and watch these incredible birds play out their lives before me. Over the years they’ve always brought a smile to my face with their charismatic bobbing or dipping movements which I’ve always viewed as the bird ‘Curtsying’ for you.
