I’ve been into photography for a long time now and I have just been looking through images I have taken over the years, I thought I’d share some of my favourites.
One of the things I want to do this year is to try and diversify the locations in where I take photographs. One of the places I am planning on going soon is a place called Surprise View in the Peak District. This area not only has some wonderful scenery but, it also is one of the few dark sky spots in the country. I really enjoy doing the odd bit of astro-photography and one of my current goals is to take a decent capture of the Milky Way. This is my best attempt so far from my back garden (Where there is a lot of light pollution)…
Below is a selection of my favorite photographs over the years:
So I have just finished setting up this site in which I envision that I will be able to post details (and images) of any photographic adventures that I have over the coming months. I am looking forward to the summer and the opportunities that this will present.
I live in the UK not far from the peak district where there is some of the best scenery that Britain has to offer, later on this year I am also planning a visit to somewhere in Europe that includes
Turkey, so I am hoping to come away from those trips with a few nice photographs to share.
I am also planning on purchasing a Canon 10-18mm F/4 lens for some wider landscape shots, been wanting to get into some panoramic shots for a while and this should allow me to explore that style of photography for a very modest price. I will also do a review once I have received the lens so check back if you’re interested in that.
My kit at the moment consists of a Canon 7D, Canon 70/200 F4 L and a Sigma 28-70 F/2.8. All of which are pretty decent bits of kit.The Sigma is fantastic especially considering how cheap it, I fully recommend it if you’re looking for a cheap lens with reasonable features.
Thanks for stopping by and keep checking back, I intend to update this page regularly.
