Ilam, Thorpe Cloud

Taken on a late night walk around Thorpe Cloud, the mist and full moon created a lovely atmosphere around the trees in the valley of the hills. The crystal clear skies full of stars made it even better. This is one of several images I took on the walk although…

Branston Waterpark Sunrise

Pseudo Film Experiment

It has occurred to me recently that with digital photography and the ever expanding size of memory cards it isn’t uncommon to shoot several hundred photos at a time. Shooting in digital is also very inexpensive in comparison to shooting film as you don’t have the overhead of…

I’ve had this bag for several months now, so I thought I would write a review detailing how I’m finding it. I paid £36 for the bag on Amazon early March ’15. The RRP is £54 so I definitely got a bargain! The first great thing about this…
