Thu, 20 February 2014 alien earth

There are lots of lifeforms on the planet which have that touch of the weird and alien about them. The ocean and the insect world are teeming with them. But among the plant world there are plenty of odd specimen, and as regular readers of my blog know I love to photograph fungi.
We’re past the [...]

Fri, 17 January 2014 after the sun, the rain

After a blast of sunshine this morning the rain rolled in as I was out walking the dog in Coole Park – luckily I was wearing the right clothing for the inclement change.
The light was so grey at this point in the afternoon that several of the photos I took looked just as well in [...]

Tue, 21 May 2013 the world will open if you wait

There are times when I go into the woods and it seems to open up and show me vistas of ethereal beauty. Those heart-stopping moments don’t always translate well to photographs. Photographing inside of woods is difficult. It tends to come out as one undifferentiated blob. Plus, there is the constant problem of the shade from the [...]

Fri, 26 April 2013 freshly minted leaves

I love the colour of freshly minted leaves after they break free from their sticky cocoons. They are soft, vunerable, and vividly green. The potential of a long summer shines in them, especially when golden evening light pours across their trembling veins.

I took this shot from below, looking straight up at the leaf, suspended in [...]

Evenings like this make up for the remorseless grey days of winter.

Sat, 05 November 2011 old magic persists

Tree, water and moon at dusk.
It’s still beautiful, despite the rows of houses stacked upon each other.
Even in the urban environment the old magic persists.

Tue, 01 November 2011 intimacy

Winter is upon us, but here is an image of a golden autumn evening in one of my favourite places to walk the dog: Coole Park.

Fri, 09 September 2011 Dessicated heart

A drop of love would make it beat again.

Fri, 18 March 2011 shake up the sky

I always say trees and sky belong together.
I snapped this a few days ago, and I love how the cloud formations seem like cartoon movement ripples or sound lines radiating from the tree.
As if it is hollering out: Wake up! Spring has returned!

Thu, 18 November 2010 going monochrome

I’ve been experimenting with changing some of my recent photographs of trees to black and white, and taking a slightly arty style. In some of them I’m using sepia tones. I start with the base image, go with my instinct about which filter works best and start building layers of effects.
Of all the creative [...]

    “Writing is rewriting. A writer must learn to deepen characters, trim writing, intensify scenes. To fall in love with the first draft to the point where one cannot change it is to greatly enhance the prospects of never publishing.” — Richard North Patterson
