I love it when it rains in Whitby as it makes the old cobbled streets turn to oily black when images are converted to B&W.

Whitby After Dark

16/10/2016

I'd been wanting to go out in Whitby to photograph the old town for a while, but the only problem was I needed it to rain beforehand. Not a problem you might think in the North of England but we haven't had a decent downpour here in Whitby for a while, well not when I've been free anyhow.

The Madness of Versailles

10/10/2016

This blog is literally moving on from my previous location at Monet's house and gardens in Giverny and heading for the opulence of the Palace of Versailles.

Walking around woodlands in my mind is supposed to be a quiet & relaxing affair but trying to do that on a weekend can be, challenging!

Not far from me is a fantastic wood called Falling Foss which has a differing array of trees, the most amazing waterfall and an added bonus of a lovely teagarden http://www.fallingfossteagarden.co.uk which is worth a visit.
