It was a shame to see an old tree cut down, it had Ash die back, but the remaining stump provided an interesting picture.

Red Dear Stags.
In all the years I have been walking and climbing in the Lake District I have only seen wild dear on a few occasions usually in the distance. I got lucky today!

Detail from the incredible 'God of War' mural in Carlisle.
I like the abstract nature of the juxtaposition between the wall structure and the painted hand.

While sorting out and tending to her various potted plants my wife moved this one and it suddenly caught the light and my imagination. I grabbed a dark card, propped it behind the plant and took this. I was quite pleased with my spur of the moment effort.

View down Dovedale. The building at the far side of the valley is the Brotherswater Inn.

A dull wet day then the sun briefly shone through the trees making everything shine.

On a cloudless cold winter morning the sun rose above the ridge behind me and suddenly lit up the scene with intense light that made the brown winter fell sides glow. A little later I came across some nice ice.

In November our local photography group managed to get going again and we had a visit from the warden of the local owl sanctuary along with some of their rescued birds.
Most of the time the birds were quite placid so I was pleased to capture this bit of action as the handler took the bird from it's perch.

Back in April I added a picture taken from Black Coomb with a faint Isle of Man in the distance. Well here is the Isle of Man again. This time it’s floating in the sky above a silver sea.

I only had a moderate lens on my camera when I spotted this youngster. I spent quite a bit of time sneaking closer and closer to try and get a shot, every time I moved though he got very agitated and noisy. Eventually managed to get this but he definitely did not want his portrait taking.

A day of subdued lighting painting the fells in lovely soft muted tones. The sky always looked like it was going to rain but none came.

Bright Lights! What else can I say?

One of the great things about photography is that it makes you look at things more closely than perhaps you would normally. And when you do you find all sorts of amazing things.

This was taken on the way up a mountain called Black Combe. I have been this way many times but have never seen the view quite like this before. I was struck by the contrast of the purple heather against the russets and greens and that the amazing blue sea beyond. You can just see the Isle Of Man in the hazy distance.

We get big skies around Furness but a storm building over Roa and Piel Islands amplified the effect. The rain came down heavy then was gone in a moment as the wind blew the clouds away. Plenty of puff to power the wind turbines today.

A misty and murky day for a lock down walk. I like the stark remains of the old structures contrasting with the gentle softness of Walney Island in the misty distance.

Trees, bracken, sunlight, a magical combination.

Another hard light day, this was taken quite early in the morning and already not a cloud in the sky and bright sun. The harsh light worked ok for this image I think though.

We went for a walk over Kikby Moor to see the Heather, it was in full bloom looking (and smelling) fantastic. It was a very bright day though so the light was a bit harsh, not the best for landscapes .
I liked the way the heather mimics the shape of Black Coombe in this shot. I had not noticed that when I took it.

A walk along the shore at Walney. It was one of those days when the light and colours were very muted so I thought a simple black and white would best convey the mood.
