On those days when I am out for a walk and the overcast is complete, you know that you’re not going to get anything with stellar light. However, like most things in life, it’s the tiny details we take for granted that can be most remarkable. It should have worn off by now, though I […]
Daily Photo - What I See Each Day
I have a huge back catalog. Revisiting the images I've shot over the years, then adding more examples of how the modern images are different in style, is an idea that interests me.
Daily Photo is an attempt to get into the habit of sharing images more. Will I actually manage a fresh photo every day, together with a suitable short blog captions?
Let's find out shall we? It starts November 2018
This one simply re-enforces a blog post I’ve been thinking of this past week. I’m often asked, generally around Christmas time and the summer holiday season, which is the best camera to buy. “You have an iPhone ?” (other devices are available) “Then learn to use that as a camera, not a phone.“ I’m still […]
The camera EXIF data recorded the time at 05:55. Then I recalled that my camera was still living on UK time, so that makes it 04:55. I don’t always rise at that time of the morning, especially after a few glasses of red wine the previous evening. However I awoke and the sheer stillness outside […]

I have this weird clock inside my head that wakes me up. It’s annoying sometimes, especially on those days when, the evening before, you say to yourself, “I’m going to have a lazy lie in tomorrow morning.” It almost never happens. I’ve given up on the idea these days and just roll with it. A […]
This must have been an utterly terrifying place on earth to be on the dawn of 6th June 1944. Omaha Beach and that whole area of the French coastline is covered with the scars of warfare. as I stood on the same beach in 2018, utterly open and without the tiniest scrap of cover, it […]
As I’m sitting watching the international news right now, with California burning in the heat and wind of the dry climate, I was reminded of my visit there in 2015. I travelled there to meet up with Ron Chapple of Aerial Film Works. Ron’s one of the stellar aerial filming specialists in the world and […]
Today, it seems appropriate to share this picture. It was the image that hit me the hardest from my work at Thiepval two years ago when I covered the Centenary of the start of The Battle of The Somme. Just 48 hours earlier, I had wished one of my sons a happy 18th Birthday before […]
