Photos: Looking good Wetherby

Wetherby Town Hall

I’ve done a couple of shoots now in Wetherby (where I’ve been staying for about 5 weeks). It took the weather gods quite a while to cough up something nice for me to play with so here we go. Above we have Wetherby Town Hall. Located in Market Square, the town hall is now a shop, but looks just as good as ever, especially at dusk when I took this photo.

Sunrise in Dawlish, England. I took these photos in early December on a road trip through the UK. We were in a small campervan and I was determined to stay off main roads as we travelled west along the Devon coast. It paid off, as it was a picturesque morning when we set off and were passing through Dawlish. I really wanted shots of the sunrise, so we pulled off the road and parked along the waterfront. The coastline here is amazing – cliffs of red sandstone that have been weathered over many years. There is a train line that runs along this part of the coast which has tunnels through some of these cliffs along the waterfront. A real gem to see!

Photos: Harewood Estate, Yorkshire

A few more photos from beautiful Yorkshire. These are from Harewood Estate on a beautiful sunny day with a storm brewing off in the distance (last image).

One thing that sets the UK apart from any other country I have been to so far, is the public walking trails that are everywhere – even through some private properties and estates. Known as Public Rights of Way, these paths are often hundreds of years old and due to their age and use over the centuries they have been protected and turned into public walkways. Take a walk along one these and you will enjoy some of the most beautiful countryside that the UK has to offer. The pictures are from the Harewood Estate where a few of these public paths snake through the woods and around the grounds.

Photo: Covent Garden, London

I think I may have found Rudolf the red nosed reindeer…

Christmas is closing in fast and some friends and I found ourselves in Covent Garden (London) on Saturday afternoon sipping mulled wine and watching street performers. I never quite understood the hype around mulled wine, but now I realise I just haven’t had good mulled wine in Australia. Mulled wine in Europe is goooooddd!

Anywho, after a couple of mulled wines, darkness had settled in and I got to work on snapping a couple of images of Covent Garden from a restaurant balcony. This is one of two photos that I liked the most out of the several that I took. What do you think of rudolf-the-shiny-green-reindeer-with-a-red-nose?

Photo: Brighton Beach

Here’s a shot I took at Brighton Beach in the south of England a couple of days ago. It was raining on Monday when we arrived, but we woke on Tuesday to find the weather had cleared from the dismal greys to a bright and sunny day. The trade off for sunshine was that it was windy and coldddd. The bushes on the beach and the dingy made for an interesting composition in my opinion.

Photo details:
Nothing crazy here, just a simple shot with my 40mm prime, processed in Lightroom 5.

Enjoy!
