I love being able to walk straight from home and within an hour be right in the midst of the Peak District. On this baking hot June day I decided to attempt my longest ever walk and cover some 45+km to cover all my favourite Peak District places including Stanage Edge, Win Hill, Kinder, Lose Hill and any pub in Castleton. Along the way the walking never seemed too much trouble, the heat however was a problem and caused a slight change in route to replenish water bottles.
A first outing with the Fuji GFX 50S medium format mirrorless digital camera. I decided I wanted to slow my photography down and produce higher quality prints. This is me getting to grips with the camera and testing how it works for the way I shoot.
I am delighted to say that my image The Explorers has been commended in the Take A View Landscape Photographer of The Year Awards 2017, in the Living The View category. The image will be in included in the awards book and exhibition in London.
A photo story whale watching off the west coast of Scotland. Floating between the incredible mountains of Torridon and the Isle of Skye, encountering Minke whales, common dolphin and all manner of seabirds. There may be no more dramatic way to find the wonderful animals that make the northern seas their home.
An early start to beat the Spanish Summer Sun and explore the fascinating limestone landscape of El Torcal. We were treated to close up sightings of Ibex and a quiet walk through this mazed of limestone stacks.
A walk which enjoys the best of Derbyshire's farming landscape and villages. Starting in Darley Bridge and climbing over the fields to the hamlets of Oaker and Snitterton before reaching Bonsall and returning via Wensley.

A beautiful, thick cloud inversion across the Peak District which I mostly missed. Instead I was enjoying some time photographing sheep near Stanage Edge. A silly mistake but a beautiful winter morning none the less.
Monday 6th Feb 2017. An early morning trip around the Peak District to make the most of the thick cloud inversion.
