Sharing a passion for black and white photography.
The textures of these rocks caught my eye as they lead out to the recession of mountains in the distance.
Stump, Loch Eck
This tree stump sits right beside the parking area and sticks up majestically just waiting to be photographed.
I loved the textures of these rocks and the way they lead out to the post at the end.
Loch Earn, Scotland
This was the penultimate shot from a recent trip to Scotland. I loved the reflections in the still water.
Last Light, Loch Earn, Scotland
I was just leaving Scotland last week, and this happened! So, I had to stop and park up, and get the camera out just one more time to capture the beauty.
In reality, this is a rather unattractive lump of concrete breakwater! However, I adored many aspects of the scene... the curve of the wall, the texture of the shingle beach, the hotchpotch of bricks part way down the wall and the marker in the middle of the water... so I tried to capture some of the beauty and share it.
What a location! I have seen very few shots of this lovely little bay and yet it is so intimate and so stunningly beautiful. Apart from that, it is photographically perfect, with those lovely rocks leading the eye straight out to the Gull Rock on the horizon.
An elegantly shaped, and majestic sandstone sea-stack in Ladram Bay, Devon. I have spent a very pleasurable few hours on this beach on several occasions and love the tranquility and majesty of the stack.
Bow Fiddle Rock, Study 2
Bow Fiddle Rock - it just sits there in the bay looking absolutely beautiful and elegant so I did the decent thing and captured it to share. I love the wet rocks in the foreground and their texture and the soft, milky water and clouds caused by the long exposure.
One of my favourite shots I have ever taken! There was a storm out to sea, and it contrasted so nicely with the rough texture of this rock which just sits there mirroring the shape of the walls of rock on either side of it. The reflections in the wet sand make the shot for me though.
If/when I produce a book of photographs, this one will be a very strong contender for the cover!
Black Oak, Driftwood Beach
I was up before sunrise and on this beautiful beach which is littered with hundreds of black oak trees, some alive some dead. It was kind of eerie but very beautiful at the same time. I love the shadow on the wet sand and the shape of the tree.
Sea Defences, St Malo
I loved the look of these sea-defences on the beach at St Malo. They are somehow totally incongruous because they are naturally occurring tree-trunks, yet they have been plonked so completely unnaturally, by humans, in a dead-straight line on a beach where they don't belong.
Anyway, I liked their reflections on the water and wet sand and their texture and grain on the trunks.
