Just back from a couple of weeks travelling around Donegal. The main photography locations were Malin Head, Horn Head, Crohy Head, and the Glencolumbkille Peninsula. Fabulous landscapes, great wildlife....Great skua, Manx Shearwater, Peregrine falcon being the highlights. Amazing seafood and of course a wonderful warm Irish welcome.

On the way back to England from Donegal, I spent a few days on the beautiful coast of County Antrim. The standout locations were Fairhead, Murlough Bay and Torr Head.

A climbing trip to Lochaber was curtailed due to poor weather so we headed out to the Isle of Mull where we escaped the worst of the weather, enjoyed exploring the coastline, and saw hen harriers, white tailed sea eagles and otters.

A return to the Mont Blanc Massif in August and September 2015 provided a fabulous opportunity to meet up with some good friends, go climbing, do some long days running in the mountains, and of course, make some new images......

September and October provided a few, rare days of inversions with oceans of mist over the Esk Valley up here in North Yorkshire. Unusually for me, I managed to be in the right place at the right time on two occasions.......

 All of these images were taken up on the Oakley Walls above the Esk Valley, looking over to Glaisdale, to Lealholm and into Great Fryupdale.



At the end of May, my client and I finally met up for a much postponed photography workshop. We were particularly wanting to photograph some of the less well known limestone pavements in dramatic light. Between October 2014 and May 2015 we must have postponed about a dozen times... eventually we made it, and we were able to make some dramatic images...
