Manchester Street Photography

I just really enjoy wandering the city streets trying to find ideas & inspiration for different and unusual photos, i particularly like photographs of people of course without their knowledge as they go about their daily lives, it can make such an interesting photo, some even tell a story or even tell you a lot about that person without actually talking to them. I also love the city after dark when it really comes alive giving a completely different perspective and more opportunities arise


St Marys Lighthouse Whitley Bay

  Reached between the tides via a short causeway, St. Mary’s has all the fascination of a miniature, part-time island. The Lighthouse, completed in 1898 on a hazardous coast for shipping, remained operational until 1984 when it was superseded by modern navigational techniques. Since then the Lighthouse and former keepers’ cottages have been operated as a visitor centre by North Tyneside Council. The surrounding Nature Reserve contains an area of rockpools, clifftop grassland, a beach and newly created wetland habitats.

Llangelynnin Church At Sunset

 (Welsh for The church of Celynnin) is a former parish in the Conwy valley, in Conwy county borough, north Wales. Today the name exists only in connection with the church, a school in the nearby village of Henryd, and the nearby mountain ridge, Craig Celynnin. Llangelynnin Church (Welsh: Eglwys Llangelynnin) is possibly one of the remotest churches in Wales (53.2458°N 3.8730°W), and is amongst the oldest; that at Llanrhychwyn, further up the valley, is a little older. The church is dedicated to Saint Celynin, who lived in the 6th century


Mist Rolling Off Cader Idris

  Today is Summer Solstice – The First Day Of Summer ( but you wouldn’t have guessed this down in Talyllyn this morning ) The summer solstice is the longest day of the year – the day in which we can enjoy approximately 17 hours of daylight. It might seem like good news, but for those of us in the northern hemisphere this is the time when the sun’s path stops moving northward in the sky and the days begin to slowly shorten.
