Soft Light at Cold Coombes

Cold Coombes is somewhere I havent really explored much despite living nearby all my life. The sun was out on force and clear skies also meant the last light of the day should produce some nice soft shadows over the South Downs, really emphasizing the curves and shapes of the landscape. I am now fully…

Bluebells Forest in Sussex

If you go into the woods today you`re be sure of a Bluebell suprise, or something like that anyway. Its that time of year again when the bluebells are out. Due to a mild winter, they are out early this year and I headed back to my old haunt in Ifield to capture the Bluebells…

South Downs National Park

I was commissioned by the South Downs National Park SDNPA recently to get images for their Autumn Campaign which is to get people out of cars and onto public transport and then walk or cycle the sites of South Downs. Took me from Eastbourne to Hampshire, It was a fantastic project and something I would love…

South Downs Wheat Fields

Around sunrise and sunset usually produces the best light especially when it comes to landscape photography, but broken clouds in the middle of the day can cast some interesting shadows, especially over fields and hills. They can bring out different shapes and textures of the land and the below images are an example of this.…

Colours of London at Night

Headed to London with some friends to get some shots, photographic eye candy everywhere. I have been wanting to get the Iconic Red bus over Tower bridge shot and the Olympus OMD with its 5axis IBIS helped capture this without a tripod, making the composition much easier to do amoungst the crowds of people and…

More poppies in Sussex

Well I guess you have to make the most of it whilst they are still around, although not as vibrant as they were a couple of weeks ago, they are still a bit of a spectacle, It is interesting that in the fields where the AMEX stadium is they looked stunning but now pretty much…

Poppy Fields in Sussex

Poppies are always a spectacular sight, especially for Landscape photographers, this year has been no acception with a usual haunt for Poppies in Falmer near the AMEX stadium. I bypassed these fields on my way to Brighton recently, and it certainly was spectacular. Also I dont think I have ever seen it so busy there,…

Bluebells in Sussex

Its that time of year again for Bluebells. I missed them last year but have recently popped to my favourite haunt to grab a few shots.

A gallery of bluebells are available to purchase as a print or canvas here http://www.sussexscenes.co.uk/gallery/sussex-bluebells/

Brighton has Sun!!

Well this was a bit unexpected. I was humming and haring about going out as it looked hazy and too much low cloud in the distance but a sudden break in the cloud and the sun blasted through. I would usually plan where to go when taking photos but at this time I was in…

Tree in the Wind

With the cold windy dull conditions we have been having in Sussex this Spring, I decided to try something a little different with a daytime long exposure. This shot was taken using a Lee 10stop  with soft grad filter for 30seconds, and the blured branches are actually from the long exposure and not something I…

The Slanted Tree

This one is an interesting composition, looking across from Devils Dyke this tree next to a road was slanted. But composing the tree upright in the frame gave a very interesting perspective of diagonal lines from the fields and the road in the image. One I shall return too to get a slightly wider field…

Rough Seas in Brighton

I was briefly in Brighton today, so headed down to the seafront for a little walkabout. The weather was dia, but sometimes can make for some interesting photos. The camera and lens was quickly getting coked in water spray (OMD is weather sealed, but lens isnt), but managed an interesting wave with the Brighton Pier…
