Stealing IS a crime, right?

One of the web's greatest photographers, the Icelandic _rebekka, is having her photos ripped off and sold on ebay and elsewhere by http://www.only-dreemin.com . Companies need to know that posting a photo to the internet DOES NOT make it public domain! Let's shut them down!

Amble Harbour

The story of Amble goes back to the very early days of Northumberland's history. There is evidence of prehistoric burial grounds on the links, and at Gloster Hill there are signs that the Romans once lived there.

The colour of the tulips caught my eye, very powerful. The shot was taken at Wallington Hall in Northumberland.

The lunar eclipse provided a spectacular sight. During totality, the moon appeared bathed in a bronze glow.

Sunday In Saltwell Park

Saltwell Park, based in the heart of Gateshead, is one of Britain's finest examples of a Victorian Park.

Known as the 'People's Park' and part of Gateshead's heritage since it opened to the public in 1876, the Park is steeped in history.

Fountains Abbey

Visited Fountains Abbey near Ripon yesterday. It's one of my favourite places to go to, great walks and loads of photo opportunities including temples, follies, waterways. There is also a huge dear park there as well as a lake with swans, ducks etc.

This photograph is my first attempt at HDR, it is a combination of 3 images.

A close up of a Hyacinth taken on the Canon 400D. I was messing about seeing how good the lense is that comes with it. I have sharpened the image in PS and highlighted it a touch.

Timanfaya National Park (Fire Mountain), Lanzarote.

I visited Lanzarote in 2006 with my wife, daughter, friends and their 2 daughters. We stayed in a villa owned by the friends which is in Puerto Del Carmen. One of the trips we went on was Timanfaya National Park (Fire Mountain), Lanzarote. It's a fascinating place that was created between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes covering over 50KM2 rose up to devastate this part of the island and several villages. The last eruptions were in 1842 but due to very little rain fall and lack of erosion the area looks much as it did just after the eruptions.

Itchy Fingers

The weather is still bad, raining most of the time and still cold. I've not had time to get out with the new kit but i will be out this weekend regardless of the weather.

This weekend the theme will be bridges across the Tyne. I'm going to try and stay away from the normal shots you see and try something different.

It should be fun....

Well winter finally made an appearance last night. It reached -4 and all the new growth in the garden has been desimated. Still it makes for some great photo opportunities.

Stay tuned....

Talk Photography

After a long and sometimes painful search for a decent photography forum i found these guys.


What a great, friendly and talented bunch of people they are.

New Year New Start

Well 2007 brings a new or should i say old hobby. Photography has always been something i've loved, be it looking at other peoples images or creating my own. After years of film SLR and then compact digital i've bitten the bullet and bought a digital SLR.

I went for the Canon EOS 400D, this was my first choice with the 350D a close second. The camera is an awesome piece of kit and should last me for years. I look forward to getting back out there and taking some great (and not so great photos).

I will update this Blog with photographs taken while on my travels. Please feel free to leave any comments, feedback is good.
