As much as I love to shoot a colourful landscape, so too do I love to shoot a gritty mono.

A walk around the backstreets is well worth the effort as it can lead to some interesting shots, if mundane and dirty are your kind of thing.

Its amazing what you can find when you go off the beaten track.

All processed using Topaz B&W Effects 2 and Lightroom 5.

Future echo?

Things to come?

Taken during our time away in Northumberland.

We passed this service station on a drive towards the Scottish border. A closer view of the cafe can be seen here.

Will dwindling resources and changes in technology lead to more scenes like this? One day for sure I believe (hopefully not in a Mad Max sort of way though).

Processed using onOne perfect effects 8, Topaz B&W Effects 2 and Lightroom 5.

Church

Church

Taken during our visit to Somerset, sadly I didn’t manage to get the name (One day I’ll try to look it up on Google maps).

It was one of those days where it was mostly grey and windy but interspersed with the occasional bright spell, it was just a case of waiting for the right moment. This was the best I got.

Submerged

Bexhill Beach.

Some fabulous rock formations are exposed when the tide is out and yes I was stood in the water, wellies on of course. It was this shot that I believe the second of my tripod’s rubber feet got lost!
