  • The Beautiful North Of England on 13th February 2013

Still freezing my fingers, this was taken at 90 degrees to the the previous pic and a little later when the sun was peeking through the clouds. Still dark the exposure was long enough to blur the waves.

Canon 450D
f/11, 1 second, ISO 100
Sigma 28-135mm @ 109mm

Inspired by my dad in visual arts and music from a very early age. He mentored me in photography, film processing and printing when I was 7 or 8 years old. He wouldn’t teach me to play guitar though so I had to teach myself, and played bass in a group while I was at University for pocket money. I took early retirement in 2009 and rekindled my passion for photography. My art is eclectic. I’ll photograph anything and everything. The world is full of images just waiting to be captured.
