A new member of the family is always a fabulous reason to celebrate and this one is no exception. Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like you to meet our new arrival - my long awaited and eagerly anticipated, Nikon D850 body. 

What is more it gives me a couple of weeks to get...

I'm not going to say a great deal about this image as I think it largely speaks for itself.  It's 'that' time of year again (Autumn/Fall) when the trees and plants produce a wonderful display of colour that are a photographer's dream and the photographer generally ends...

I've been revisiting a few of my older photos, reprocessing the raw files with the latest versions of the RAW converter (in this case, Adobe Lightroom). This is why I and so many other photographers shoot in raw format. You will always extract more image information an...

We were looking forward to a well earned break in the sun (Gran Canaria to be exact). We generally stay at a private complex owned by friends of ours and so book flights independently. Our airline of choice for the trip to Gran Canaria has always been Monarch - they op...

I'd wager that the vast majority of keen amateur and professional photographers have a 70-200 lens in their kit bag or something very similar. It covers a very useful range of focal lengths without stretching the bounds of high optical quality and practicality (weight,...

Self indulgence time.

There are 4 great loves in my life:  my wonderful hard working and very patient partner, photography, a nice bottle of wine and my dogs. 

I am 'Daddy' to three gorgeous Labradoodles - Lily, Barney and their 'puppy', Dolly. I've taken so many...

I just couldn't hold out any longer. I have ordered a new Nikon D850 plus battery grip from those great people at Wex Photographic. They are Nikon Pro dealers so as I am part of the Nikon Professional Service (NPS), I get priority service which means it should be...

Cards on the table: I know next to nothing about steam locomotives (other than I know NOT to call them steam trains or else face the wrath of the steam enthusiasts), but undoubtedly there is a fascination about them that draws me back time and time again.

I'm not sure...

Normally I am not one to be seduced by the lure of shiny new kit. Let's face it, the major manufacturers change models more often than many people change underwear and for many, new kit becomes nothing more than jewellery. They must have it just because it's the "lates...

I first became interested in photography as a spin off from my first love as a kid which was butterflies, moths and all manner of other creepy crawlies. I still find the 'macro world' fascinating. When you stop and look closely at the flowers and insects around us, you...
