Epping Forest

Epping Forest is a former royal forest that is managed by the City of London. It covers 2,476 hectares and contains areas of woodland, grassland, rivers and ponds. It is considered to be a special area of conservation and site of special scientific interest. To read more about the Epping…

Stourhead

There is a fine eighteenth-century house here, but the fame of Stourhead does not rest on it at all but on the landscape made by succeeding generations of the house’s owners. No man-made landscape in England is more beautiful; indeed, it is a place of European not solely English importance.

Stowe

The house at Stowe has been a school since the 1920s. The surrounding grounds, the first commission of the eighteenth-century’s best-known landscaper, ‘Capability’ Brown, have been in the hands of the National Trust since 1990. With their lakes and follies, the gardens have plenty of calculatedly surprising views. Catherine the…

Upper Diabaig

The sun is setting behind the Isle of Skye (the hills in the distance). The loch in the foreground (Diabaigas Airde), was partly covered in ice, muting the reflected colours a little.

Annat Salt Marshes

On the right day, the sunrise strikes the slanted bowl that is the peak of Beinn Alligin. The first sunlight of the day makes the slopes burn a reddish/pinkish hue. The photograph was taken in an unnaturally mild February; usually at that time of year there would be a dusting…

London Underground

Explore the different lines. They each have their own character. The architecture is sometimes distinguished and the signage is of course iconic. Compare the main photo’s 1940s restraint (St John’s Wood, a grade II listed station) with the second photo’s ‘in-your-face’ brutalism (Westminster). The third photograph leaves you in no…

Salt Marshes at Seilebost

The Isle of Harris, with some exceptions, is a sunset rather than sunrise location. The winds on the isle can be fierce, so a good, firm tripod is essential, and fitting spikes to the legs is probably a good idea. This shot was taken at about 8pm in May: 70mm,…

Deal beach

This is a long pebble beach which is an interesting spot for a stroll with your loved ones. It’s a calm place with a friendly neighborhood. Do not miss to try out the home made sea food restaurants around. Further along the beach road, you can find the Tudor rose…

Pulteney Bridge

The city of Bath is a wonderful place to visit – both for exploring the history and the numerous photographic opportunities. Pulteney Bridge which crosses the River Avon (not the same one as found in Shakespeare country) is beautiful at any time of the day. Like much of the city,…

Halnaker Tunnel of Trees

I took my picture of this tunnel in the fall/autumn and I suspect it is the best time of the year to get the picture because the colors are the richest and warmest. In fact I took this picture in early November. I photographed in the morning, and a bit…
