Pirates descended on Battersea Park for the annual SunWalk London 2014. Waving their cutlasses and shouting "oooarrr" quite a lot drove the rain and clouds away. It's always so wonderful to see everyone really going to town on the decorations and add in the magic ingredient of kids beating their parents to cross the line - what more could you ask for!

Aly and Sage had arranged for a dog wash at the wonderful Wag N Wash in Camberley to raise money for charity. One of Sage's favourite vets, Fiona, passed away and this seemed like the ideal way to celebrate her life, raise some cash and have a lot of fun.

I wasn’t sure what to expect to be honest. Photographing dogs being groomed sounded very interesting and…very wet! Add in 40 of them and well, I leave your imagination to fill in the blanks!! Aly and Sage had arranged for a dog wash at the wonderful Wag N Wash in Camberley to raise money for charity. One of Sage’s favourite vets, Fiona, passed away and this seemed like the ideal way to celebrate her life, raise some cash and have a lot of fun.

When my daughter first came home from hospital and we undertook the dreaded first bath, she looked at us with and expression of “do you have any idea what you are doing.” Much soothing and clucking noises followed. Mainly for us I think.

And that is just what this was like! Over a few hours dogs form the small (very) to the big (huge!) were washed, shampooed, clucked and fussed over. Just like children. Some dogs loved it. Some dogs were erm..backed into a corner. Just like children! It was a wonderful and uplifting thing to see and photograph

Thank you Edinburgh!

Thousands of women and men wearing brightly decorated bras were walking on sunshine, as they completed their Power Walking challenges at The MoonWalk Scotland 2014. These amazing people set off from Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park at Midnight on Saturday 7th June, pounding the streets to raise money and awareness for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk. Over half a million pounds had been raised before even one step had been taken!

An incredibly wet day made for an exceptionally difficult course as the team of 60 from Walk the Walk walked from London to Brighton. Mud mud and more mud.  No one should belittle the achievement of those who didn\’t quite get there this time. No one should underestimate the sheer bloody determination of those who did make it.

The smell was quite simply overpowering

Gearrannan,-Red-and-White---HebridesThe Outer Hebrides is an odd kind of place – don’t get me wrong I think it’s wonderful but this windswept outcrop is a little strange. No trees. Just lots and lots of weather. It does however have some of the oldest rocks in the world – the wonderfully named Lewisian gneiss, a mere 3 billion years old. I’m not much of a geologist but you do end up having slightly more than a passing interest in rocks if you spend long enough looking at them.

Which is either suffering for your art or just a hairs breath away from insanity, looking at rocks for a long time that is.

But that’s what I was embarking on, very very early on one June morning. The Hebrides have the same magical quality as Iceland in that at that time of year the sun never really sets. It just bounces nicely off the horizon. The beach at Gearrannan (northern Lewis) is a remarkable place to photograph, but trying to make sense of the chaos that evenly sized, similarly coloured rocks present is tricky. It’s a bit like making a photograph of  spaghetti hoops interesting.

After much rock gazing I had found a composition that worked, naturally it was just near a decomposing seal. It stank of rotting fish. A lot. What to do? Photograph or not…Luckily I came equipped with the most trusty piece of photographers kit – my T shirt which was employed as a (rather ineffectual) haz-mat across my mouth. I was willing myself to believe that it was working…

What I will say is that it concentrated my mind but using a view camera is not necessarily a quick process. It can be if needed. But photographing rocks at close quarters with a tripod that was doing it’s best as a gymnast is laborious.

Still the end result was worth it and “Red and White” has been one of my more popular images in portfolio. Now you know the back story of how it was made  / smelled.

Landscape Photography, Berkshire

(N.B. The image is clickable, supersize and shareable..give it a try! Reading the post on your phone? Rotate the screen to horizontal and enjoy the image larger)

It felt like someone was tapping me on the shoulder. I felt sated after my last image and had been meandering my way back to the car. My morning had started well and had now come to a close. But this tap tap on my shoulder was very tangible and although the sun was up and the mist lifting I was still feeling rather spooked.

Tapppp it went again. I stopped and turned around.

Fairy Glade - Crowthorne WoodsLandscape photographers, perhaps all photographers, would love you to believe that every image is planned and co-ordinated. They say that’s how they arrive at their best work. I must be doing something wrong then. I am “just a wander around and react to the moment” sort of photographer.

I have walked past this grove of trees every time I have come to Crowthorne Woods. It is much like any of the others, pretty in its own way. Except with these conditions it was transformed. I was made dumbstruck for the second time that morning. This landscape photographers wet dream of a scene is not meant to happen here in Berkshire.

Yet here it was in all its beauty. Radial beams of sunlight piercing the mist. Lancing between the trees. Lighting up the ground, the bark…the smile on the face of this photographer.

I hope it is one of those images that speaks for itself. Click on the image…on a nice big monitor and enjoy it. If you do, please tell me in the comment boxes below…
