I started photography around 30 years ago, and became interested in landscape photography after seeing the work of Derry Brabbs in “James Herriot’s Yorkshire”.

I live in Cumbria and take most of my photographs in the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

In addition to Redbubble, I sell work through, PhotoBox, Zazzle, Greetings Card Universe, etc.

    Wonderful view along Grisedale valley in typical Cumbrian weather! I suppose that low cloud stretched all the way from Dollywaggon Pike up to Helvellyn? Excellent composition and use of light.

  • Thanks for your comments David.
    Yes, I was in and out of the cloud all day and didn’t see much from the tops. (Despite the optimistic weather forecast).

    A fine beauty, Dave, always admire a photographer willing to hike it, and this one looks like you got your exercise. Love the far far perspective and the purple shadows mountains always seem to achieve.

  • Thanks Syd. None of the English hills are very big in the grand scheme of things of course, but you can certainly work up a sweat if you’re carrying a load of camera gear!
