I recently had one of my images of the Ribblehead Viaduct purchased by online puzzle website JSPuzzles, who offer free to play jigsaw puzzles. The number of pieces per puzzle can be changed from 9 to 225 making it as easy or hard as you like. It’s good fun and definitely worth a go, I’ve […]

We’ve reached that time of year when the days start to get longer and warmer and the natural world begins to leap into action. Spring flowers bloom and wildlife begins to emerge from hibernation. New lives are born and courtship and mating rituals are in full flow. For me one of the most evocative mammals […]

Situated high above Leek and the Tittesworth Reservoir the Roaches, along with Ramshaw Rocks and Hen Cloud, form a dramatic gritstone escarpment with spectacular views and unique rock formations.

To top it off there’s some stunning scenery and a couple of old packhorse bridges. Just for fun I’ve included the shot from the heart wrenching […]

As a nature photographer I endeavour to photograph my environment under a wide variety of weather conditions. Disappointingly though I have not managed many of snowy conditions. Last year we had none whatsoever, and the year before, even though there was plenty of snow, I was still getting to know the best locations to visit and […]

The conditions were amazingly varied last week at Shelter rocks on Higger Tor last with sunshine one second then dark moody skies and hailstorms the next.

These abandoned millstones below Burbage Edge are another Peak District photography spot I like to return to every so often. I knew that at this time of year the sun sets directly behind the stones, I just needed the right weather conditions and decent sunset. On Monday the forecast looked promising, so I set off […]

For much of the year grey seals are out at sea or hauled out on far away sandbanks, but from October to December the seals come ashore to give birth to their pups on the sand dunes of Donna Nook. Donna Nook is home to one the largest and most accessible grey seal colonies in […]

Carhead Rocks are one of the lesser known edges in the Peak District National Park. This small gritstone edge is situated just below the mighty Stanage Edge, with great views overlooking the Hope Valley. I visited on a beautiful autumn afternoon a couple of hours before sunset. Thanks for looking!
