Yachts, Shoreham Beach

After 6 months of staying at home, I have started exploring further afield. In this case, about 20 miles away – so not that far! I used to live in Shoreham-by-Sea 40 years ago and whenever I go back I am reminded of what it was like as a child. The church at the endContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Double Rainbow, West Sussex

People tend to think of landscape photography as a fairly leisurely persuit, but in my experience it is anything but. I took these two pictures within a few minutes of each other – and then the light went! If you are curious, I took these on my phone, which I bring on my daily walk.Continue reading “Double Rainbow, West Sussex”

Mountains in Yunnan

This is another photo from my trip to Yunnan in 2015. Yes, I have this as my banner, but thought I would write about it. The path the photo was taken from led to a large lake. In the foreground, you can see paddies which were in cultivation. In the background, you can the mountainsContinue reading “Mountains in Yunnan”

View from the Shinkansen, Japan

This is just an a photograph of Mt. Fuji from the shinkansen going to Kyoto from Tokyo. On the train, you catch a glinpse of it quite early and the train takes you closer and closer – until – you have this view. If you fly into or out of Narita airport, you also getContinue reading “View from the Shinkansen, Japan”

On The Bund, Shanghai

The title really should be “View from the Bund” because all the tall buildings you can see are on the other side of the Huangpu River. As you can see, there is a wide path for people to walk by the river, which is pleasant when there is a gentle breeze (perhaps with an iceContinue reading “On The Bund, Shanghai”

View of Straits Quay, Penang

I know this photo looks rather fake and “dramatised”, but really the scene did look rather like this. Penang is a curious place. Despite being a small island off the Malaysian peninsula, the weather could vary widely, even if you were only a couple of miles away. Here you can see a tropical storm brewing,Continue reading “View of Straits Quay, Penang”

Across the Strait, Malaysia

Another seascape! Once upon a time, Penang was a hub beween the UK and Hong Kong. During the war, various battles were fought in the Straits of Malacca and later it was a submarine base for the Japanese. These days, the harbour mostly handles cruiseships and ferries carrying holidaymakers to Langkawi (which I will probablyContinue reading “Across the Strait, Malaysia”

Dawn – Cedar Key, FL

I can’t believe I took this almost 20 years ago! The night before, I had driven down from Atlanta. The last few miles had been quite slow because deer kept jumping from the side of the road (might have made interesting pictures) in what was quite a rural area. Finally we pulled up at theContinue reading “Dawn – Cedar Key, FL”

Holyrood Park, Edinburgh 2018

Years ago Kodak used to promote their materials with amazing landscape photographs – all done with large format cameras – as huge banners in places Grand Central Station – I think they called them Coloramas. And I’ve always loved that sort of thing. Anyway, took this picture last month month when I was in Edinburgh.Continue reading “Holyrood Park, Edinburgh 2018”
