Autumn Fire

Another few photos to remind me that the best camera is the one you have with you at the time. At an old country house for a conference and managed to catch some shots of fallen maple leaves. Accidentally taking a frame while moving have me an idea. All photos taken on my mobile with…

New York, New York – and Niagara

Back to New York again, but this time I remembered to bring a tripod for night photographs of the Manhattan skyline.  And we had slightly longer to explore the city, so went up the Empire State Building and visited the Statue of Liberty.  Side trip to Niagara – the falls are amazing, but the town…

The Great Migration!

So we’ve been back for some time, but it’s taken me this long to edit some photos.  Thank heavens for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, there’s nothing quite like a deadline… So here are some photos from our recent trip to Kenya to see the Great Migration. All these shots are from the…

New York, New York – and Virginia

Ok, so I’m way behind on editing my photos. But at last I’ve got some done – these are from our trip to the USA in July. Lots of Manhattan skylines (don’t think I’ll ever get bored of that); some shots of the Space Shuttle Discovery, Enola Gay and an SR-71 Blackbird (probably the best…

Save the Cheetah

One of our two Christmas charities this year (admittedly donating slightly late) – the AfriCat Namibia foundation, which we were able to visit in Namibia in 2015. And some photos of a cheetah and one of our excellent guide 🙂  http://www.africat.org/ http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/AfricatFoundation

Tiglets!

Great day out at London Zoo on Sunday. Went to see the Sumatran tiger cubs and got lucky – they get very frisky after feeding. Possibly the very definition of a furball. But the yellow mongoose were an unexpected highlight. Real posers. But in a good way…

ZAPP!

Staggered and honoured to win my category (At Home in their Habitat) in the Zoological Society of London Animal Photography Prize! Taken from an aeroplane, this image portrays the dependence on the environment of even the largest animal in Africa. The game trails show the passage of many animals, now absent, to what was once a large…

Grand Canal, Venice

Venice!

Back from a few glorious days in Venice. Really a paradise for urban photography, to the point you end up walking past scenes that would be a great shot in any other city.  A few highlights below, or you can see the full gallery here for more photos.

Into Africa

Created a new AV sequence for the competition at my local photography club.  Rather pleased to win against some stiff competition!  And do go full screen for best quality, it’s good up to 1080p HD. Almost all of these photos are from our recent trip to Namibia and Botswana with the ever wonderful Safari Consultants. Comment below if…

Competition time again

Editing photos for competitions again.  First deadline is Wildlife Photographer of the Year, on Thursday morning… would welcome thoughts on which of these are the best, and any further editing they need! It’s always a long shot, but always worth trying.
