Wahiba Sands desert, Oman

IMG_5801

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.

St Ives sunrise

As 2017 comes to a close, I am pleased to share this picture with you of a wonderful sunrise I spent in the harbour in St Ives a month ago.  This year has been a challenging one on the family side as we said goodbye to my dad.  It is the first serious loss I have experienced and it hit me hard.  I have had a tough run at my day job which has also knocked me for six.  On the positives I have achieved some of my 2017 resolutions, but I hope to develop my photography 2018 and dedicate the time I need to make that happen.

For all those who take time out to have a look at my page, I wish you all a very happy holiday and say a big thank you – your visits mean a lot to me.

Best,

Keith

Shenandoah sunrise

So if you followed my last blog, you will know I’ve been playing around a new “darkroom” system and using USA pics to try it out.  Here is a shot I took on Shenandoah’s Skyline Drive at sunrise earlier this year.  It was a truly remarkable drive and I hope I get back again sometime.  I hope everyone has a happy weekend.
Here’s a bonus shot taken the same morning.

Grand Canyon Sunset

What an incredible place, the Grand Canyon is.  I spent a lovely couple of hours watching the sunset over the canyon in the company of around 50 photographers, each hoping to get an original take on this view.  I just managed to get a standard postcard image.  But I’m happy that I had the opportunity to visit this site place which just fills you with awe.
