Memories of Summer

Last summer I took some shots of a friend's dog - I couldn't post any of them here then as they were for a gift for the owner. They remind me of the glorious days of warmth and sunshine that seem so far away at the moment...

Snow Portrait

Isolating the subject from the background can be a difficult thing to accomplish in photography, but on the day I took this is was a breeze - a snowy, foggy day made everything white, except beautiful lady you see here...

Saltburn Pier

Saltburn-by-the-Sea (to use its full and rather unwieldy name) is fortunate enough to have its own pier. A picturesque spot, it's a natural magnet for photographers - I saw three others on the morning I took this!

This is a long-exposure shot, which means the picture was taken over a relatively long period of time (15 seconds to be precise) - this turns the sea into something like a low-lying fog, which gives a very magical effect.
