South Downs National Park UK.

South Downs National Park UK:  I had just a few minutes left before the light was gone, with everything ready i managed to fire off a frame or two and hope for the best. Using a slow shutterspeed i also hoped the sheep played there part and stayed still just for that  second exposure. After getting the film back from the lab and viewing the results i think it worked.(Just) This Image can be purchased from

Dorset Coastline

The Dorset Coastline 2012.Kodak Ektar results: Very pleased with the results, this film offers very fine grain, good density and above all sharpness, detail and contrast. My overall view on this film is impressive, and will be a contender against the trusted Fuji Velvia. I think both films play there part in different situations and the Ektar will bring even more confidence in my Photography with a couple packs in my camera backpack on my next outing.

Derwent water

I thought I would put this one up, this image has been taken so many times, however it is still a favorite of mine.
Taken November 2010 at 7.00am in thrashing rain and high winds, did not think the image would work, but even in these conditions it was possible to create a sense of mood. You can Purchase  this image from

New Year

Ok! Here's the start of my new blog, just returned from the New Forest National park in the UK, decided to carry on shooting film over digital this year. Why! As still getting better results from large prints. On this trip I decided to use the Kodak Ektar instead of the trusted Fuji Velvia (still waiting for the results from the lab) will post later on the outcome.
Anyway, not a bad holiday shoot, was blessed with the weather and light plus not to many crowds of walkers.
Also this year I'm still following my passion for the Panoramic format, it's just the way I see things now after all the years of using  this format.

Will post again later with the Ektar results.
