And it Began with a Tree

As a photographer attachments grow for certain places, you find yourself revisiting them time and time again. It’s almost an obsession to capture the perfect shot under the right circumstances. Every time you visit the moment is different and the image you capture tells another, slightly different, story. During the last year, and especially over theContinue reading “And it Began with a Tree”

Brutal Oxford

Oxford was my first day trip of the year. Its university is well known and brings people from all over the world to the city. With the growth of Oxford University buildings were needed, many of which date back to its early beginnings. There are examples of many different architectural styles but I was thereContinue reading “Brutal Oxford”

System Failure

The last few months have been a whirlwind, devouring all my time and this blog has suffered as a result of that. This is something I want to remedy starting now. Last year I packed up my life and moved countries, back home to the UK. Before getting completely settled I took a month holidayContinue reading “System Failure”

Avebury in Black and White

Above is Silbury Hill, the tallest prehistoric man made hill in Europe, standing at 30m tall. With itsContinue reading “Silbury Hill”

Caen Hill Locks

The Kennet and Avon Canal is a 57 mile stretch of man made waterway that links the River Avon to the River Kennet in the south of England. After a lengthy construction period the Canal opened in 1810 but wasn’t used for long before the Great Western Railway was opened in 1838. The area ofContinue reading “Caen Hill Locks”

Written in Rock

The Jurassic Coast is well known for its unique landscape. I have already mentioned Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, two places I was able to visit recently, but there are many others spread out along the 95 mile stretch, they include Chesil Beach and Old Harry’s Rocks. Most famously the Jurassic Coast is known forContinue reading “Written in Rock”
