Army Cadet Force Training

Always great fun to see young people enjoying themselves, especially when it is outside on such a lovely sunny day.  These Army Cadets were undergoing a series of initiative and problem solving tasks, as part of their ongoing training schedule.

Fawley Power Station

I have recently had the pleasure of photographing the decommissioned Fawley Power Station on the edge of the New Forest and the interior is the most incredible array of 1960’s engineering, which my photographs can only begin to show in terms of scale, intricacy and detail.

Purton Ships’ Graveyard

In the current issue of Landscape magazine is a feature detailing the very unique Purton Ships’ Graveyard on the banks of the River Severn in Gloucestershire.  A variety of redundant ships and barges were deliberately run aground to halt the erosion of the river bank, which have now been absorbed back into the landscape.

Branching Out?

Walking past the Oval yesterday I wondered if the tree is branching-out to use the cycle lane?

Spring Has Sprung!

Spring is here, so lovely to see daffodils bursting out.

Palais Royal, Paris, France

A recent visit to the Palais Royal in Paris, where I was not the only person enjoying the Daniel Buren installations!

What’s Up Ducky?


On a recent visit to the Salterns Ponds in Lymington, I saw two of my favourite things – ducks and the seaside.  All I need now is for some pied wagtails to join in the fun!

Clegg’s of Ilkley


Clegg’s of Ilkley is a fabulous electrical retail shop in the Yorkshire town and I was very pleased to come across it purely by chance – another one of my ‘Roadside Britain’ discoveries, as my initial introduction was through the car window.  Always a difficult month for retailers, but fortunately this independent retailer offers a bespoke and local service.

Christmas Shop Window


Fabulous shop window display in Brockley, south east London, celebrating and promoting the festive season.
