    Tick bite. Should i be worried?

    The classic bulls eye rash symptom does not always occur, if you start to feel fatigued or get flu like symptoms over the next 2 weeks insist that your GP starts you on a 2-3 week course of doxycycline without waiting for a test. You can elect to take doxycycline as an antimalarial and it is...

    beautiful, I love the contrast between the light and the shadows on the poppies and the moody sky

    Crook Peak Sunrise

    thank you for the feedback. I chose to limit the sky as it wasn’t that interesting, but see what you mean Thank you. I was fairly limited from a composition point of view due to the number of people around. I also really like 3 due to the light.

    Crook Peak Sunrise

    thanks, yes I loved the side lighting and had other plans for it, however with all the people that turned up it wasn’t feasible as there would have been about 30 (appropriately socially distancing) people in it

    Malvern Hills sunset

    Quantock Hills Sunset

    With the relaxing guidelines we decided to go for an evening walk in the Quantocks on Sunday, we elected for the evening as we thought it would be quieter than the day. During our 4 hours out we only saw about 10 other people. It was great to be out walking again, and using the camera. These...

    Talk to me about editing on an iPad Pro

    if anyone has a suggested workflow for panoramas in lightroom and affinity on the ipad that would be great. Panoramas and photo merging are the one think i’m missing at the moment. The way I ended up doing it was to: Process one image in LR Sync all changes Export to tif Open in afinity Merge...

    Scalaber and Nidd falls

    I like 3 the best, the addition of the foreground definitely worked. I would probably have used a polariser to reduce the reflections
