A spectacular panorama of the sun rising over a misty Hope Valley in the Peak District, Derbyshire.
An end of August sunrise over Hope Valley, Derbyshire. With a cloud inversion making for a fantastically dramatic scene. More images from this morning's capture to come, but first some much needed sleep is in order!
A golden glow from the morning sun as the last of the early mist clings to the fields here in Lincolnshire. I love September mornings like this!
A panorama of the stunning colours I experienced whilst in Massachusetts during fall of 2013. I still don't think I've seen reds and yellows as vibrant or crisp, a truly beautiful landscape!
As it's fast approaching that time of year, here's a throwback from a trip to Massachusetts back in 2013. I had heard about the brilliant colours of fall but never experienced it until we arrived at our destination in the countryside. The colours were so vibrant, and air so crisp it was simply stunning!
A morning Massachusetts mist cutting between the trees, forming steps across the landscape to the hills beyond.
Happy September! My favourite month of the year (not just because it's my birthday month). We'll soon start getting the misty, moody mornings & evenings that make for fantastic sunrises & sets. Plus you can't beat a bright, crisp September day! Here's a throwback to my trip to Massachusetts to get me in the mood for autumn/fall :)
Train tracks to nowhere...
Slow shutter shot of a fast flowing stream in Snowdonia National Park, Wales
The beautiful town of Betys-y-Coed in Wales, UK
Hardknott Pass - If you want a challenging (but fun) drive in the Lake District, then Hardknott Pass is the road for you! a 30% gradient of winding, single-track road leading to an old Roman fort, and stunning views over the Lake District
One of the huge oil rigs dotted about the North Sea, heading to Norway you pass a fair few of these. Surprising how busy the sea's actually are!
Visit the beautiful city of Bergen and take a ride on the Fløibanen funicular for an impressive view! The cruise ship docked is P&O's Britannia, at 1,083ft long, and 232ft high she's not a small ship, but high up from this view she looks like a scale model.
A throwback to a trip to Norway last year. This was the scene greeting us on arrival to Ålesund! Such dramatic landscapes, and the sheer scale of the mountains was simply awe inspiring!
Another throwback to last years Norway trip - more of the dramatic, beautiful scenery that greets you whilst cruising along Sognefjorden. You just don’t tire of this view!
One of the many waterfalls observed whilst cruising through the beautiful Sognefjorden, as this shot was taken back in April (2016), the waterfalls hadn't gotten to their full beauty just yet. This was the first meltwater coming from the mountain tops. The beginning of the powerful process thats constantly shaping and reshaping this amazing landscape.
Standing tall along the shores of Sognefjorden are some of Norway’s giants. These ancient mountains dwarf anything that sails past them (including huge cruise ships) and provide absolutely stunning views over a dramatic landscape!
The sun setting behind low mountains as we drifted through the Fjords, so peaceful & beautiful!
There's something special about taking a walk under tall trees. Especially with the added bonus of seeing red squirrels and other creatures!
A still morning overlooking Loch Leven in the Scottish Highlands, the weather was fairly grey which is why I decided to B&W the image, to bring focus to the mountain reflections in the Loch.
Love how dramatic the mountains of the Scottish Highlands can be!
The light picking out detail on the side of Cat Bells, a 451m fell overlooking Derwent Water, Keswick.
Tall shadows as the sun is setting over the lakes. From here you can see Derwent Water (nearest) and Bassenthwaite Lake, with Keswick to the right.
Mountains overlapping each other like great steps to the sky. The setting sun highlighting new details every minute… there's always something to marvel at in the Lake District.
As the sun goes down behind the mountains, the last golden rays of light reach down to Derwent Water before fading away.
As the sun finally sets over Derwent Water and neighbouring mountains, we are left with a golden sky, crisp silhouettes, and beautiful reflections…
The sky above Derwent Water with clouds seemingly on fire from the last few moments of light. The calm water holding the last reflections of the day.
A nice capture as the last light of the day hits the hillside along Ladybower Reservoir, picking out the heather giving blasts of purple on the hilltops
Bamford Edge is an overhang of gritstone rock that sticks out north of the village of Bamford, Hope Valley, in the English county of Derbyshire. I decided to have a wonder up with a friend to see if we could capture a sunset, sadly this was as good as it got with the light, but what a glorious place to sit back with a coffee and enjoy the view over the peaks and Ladybower Reservoir.
Another shot from my trip to Bamford Edge, sadly we lost what remained of any good light quite quickly, but I quite liked this composition, which works well as black and white with the foreground detail picked out a little.
Mist hugging the water as the bright morning sun breaks through.
A scene looking towards the entrance of Winnats Pass in Hope Valley, Derbyshire from Mam Tor on a late August morning. The mist and cloud inversion at this point reminded me of waves lapping the seashore.
