Nature at its’ most artistic

Here are a few images from Cumbria’s Lake District and North Wales. All have been photoshoped but only to a degree. I always try to stick to the rule of not altering a photograph as per its’ content, but am happy to effect the colour, contrast etc. and remove blemishes such as dust or scratches.

Windermere Airshow @ Bowness

This photoset covers the Windermere Airshow last weekend, which was held at Bowness, on the shores of Lake Windermere, in the Lake District.

In all fairness it wasn’t the best airshow I had seen but it had a few notable moments and a few are captured here.

The U.S. Mustang was quite a site, and the sound was equally as inpressive.

The crowd seemed to agree, but still the mood was quiet as we had to wait a long time between planes..

But this had to be the crowning show of the day. The Vulcan Bomber thundered accross the otherwise peaceful Cumbrian sky, roaring with fury. The site was as impressive as the deafoning blasts of sound.

A taste of the North

These are a couple of choice images from my recents travels around the North West of England.

You will honestly never guess where this was taken, so I will tell you, probably…


This one I will reveal is Llandudno’s promade, in North Wales. I beautiful sight to be sure, especailly as the sun sets over the Great Orme.

Dark Imagery

These two images are from may latest set, which I posted this week.

The first is a dark and hopefully dramatic image of a bird in flight.


I have tried to give this picture a social commentary theme, using the dark water and the blurred cigerette packet to represent the dangers of prolonged smoking. It was called “Emphysema”.

Manchester: Part 1 – A Growing Cityscape

Since I first began to take up Photography seriously back in the summer of 2005, my home city of Manchester has often being my subject. It is not soley out of local pride of a strong technical interest is architecture which has driven this, but often because Iive and work here!

I would and still do, take my camera out at lunch time and on the way home and take a few shots. The challenge was to find new and interesting places to capture the city from, so particularly in 2006,  height was definatly my thing. 
Dusk And The Two Towers

This was taken on the 13th February 2006, by my Kodak Z740. This shot captures two of the landmark towers in Manchester. The foreground being the Arndale Centre’s tower, which stands over one of Britains largest shopping centres, and in the distance, on of my favoured subjects, Beetham Tower, duing in it’s construction.

Wheel Of Fortune

This shot, taken a few months earlier, at Christmas 2005, shows one of the wheels which has graced the city over the years. This stood, as does one today, in what is known as Exchange Square, at centrepeice of the city centre used for events.

This was a lucky shot to be honest. Taken after a few drinks at about 11:00pm, again with the Kodak, the fact that is came out at all was great! This is still one of my favourites.

Pastel Manchester

This was taken earlier one in the afternoon of  the 13th February 2006. This to me, sums up modern Manchester. Is this reletively small area in the heart of the city, we can see various decades of architectural designs, such as the 50’s/60’s on the bottom left, and what I suspect is a late 1970’s tower in the top right.
Modern City

Now back a little earlier, November 2005. This shot was taken with my Vivitar compact. This builing, which faces the historic Piccadilly Gardens in the city centre, had just been completed at the the time and almost every floor was empty.

I forget what it became, but besides offices, but the ground floor became shops; Rather expensive ones, too!
G-Mex Vs Hilton

And to finish with a more recent shot. This was only taken this year, 15th April,  with my camera to hand, which was my trusty IPAQ rx3000. The shot obviously suffers for the low resolution, but with a small amount of ‘photoshopping’, I tried to create a more artistic image.

In the foreground with have the ond Manchester Central train station, which for many years now has been known as the GMEX Exhibition Centre. It has just recently, changes it’s name back to Manchester Central, though to my knowledge, no rail services are planned!

In the background, the faded image of Beetham Tower is barly visable, in an attempt to highlight the changes this city has gone through over the pasted hundred years or so.
