Sunset at Wahiba Sands desert in Oman. Half an hour before sunset there was no wind and bright sunshine. At sunset, the wind picked up and the sands on the desert floor swirled around our feet. It was not the sunset I was hoping for, but I am happy with this shot that sort of reminds me of a picture my parents have on their wall of elephants in Africa. The colours are similarly muted. It may be the shape of the trees. Anyway, here it is. I hope you like it. Pictures of camels and sand dunes may follow.
This weekend we spent a day on the Gower in South Wales. This is Worm’s Head in Rhossili. It can be reached when the tide is out along a quite “awkward to walk over” causeway.
After the bustling streets of St Ives, a sunset trip to Cape Cornwall is a beautifully peaceful fillip. One of my favourite places in Cornwall it is wonderful place to watch the sun go down sitting on the rocks and thinking about the past and the future.
One of the most amazing trips I’ve been lucky enough to go on was to New Zealand over Christmas and New Year in 2013/14. Towards the end of our trip we went on a boat trip on Milford Sound. We had great weather on the first day, kayaking and swimming from the boat. Taking pictures of the waterfalls that cascade down the sides of the fjords. The next morning we woke up to mist and rain and fog. A totally different experience.
I shot this image in 2007 one during an extended work break in Vancouver. We had a good meal in some bar & grill place. I dusted it off for a Getty stock call but the image. I found out that I used to shoot in JPEG (not RAW) and it’s a little soft and therefore not up to get over the Getty quality bar, but I quite like it nevertheless.
We spent a lovely day walking from our cool AirBnB in Hell’s Kitchen to walk the High Line and the from there to the World Trade Centre, City Hall and then we found ourselves at the Brooklyn Bridge. You can’t shoot it without hundreds of people in the shot, so I just went with the flow.

I spent a few days in New York at the weekend. Love those towers of dreams and toil and consumption. I’ve only visited the city a few times but its energy is contagious.
I have been walking the South West Coast Path over recent years, knocking off one section at a time when I have time. So far I have walked from Polzeath to Land’s End (although there are a couple of short sections that I need to fill in on that stretch). Last week I started the walk from Land’s End along the South Coast with the first section to Porthcurno. I was hoping to catch some great light at Nanjizal (I didn’t – I’ll have to go back another time), but I did see a seal pup high up on that beach, and spend a lovely hour on the beach at Porthcurno.
