St.Mary’s Lighthouse is a great place to visit. I love the place. This morning I have shot several shots on the colour slide and negative films.

But also few exposures on Fuji Acros. It makes me sad knowing that this film is no longer available. 

What is your favourite B&W film?

Last photo trip of the year 2014

Posted

Last photo trip of the year is already something like a tradition. Every year my friend Chris is organising an all day trip to coast. 2014 was not an exception and despite the weather ( it was snowing in Midlands…) we set off for North Wales coast .

Last photo trip 2014 started from Nottingham at 4 am we drove to village of Talacre. Lighthouse on the near beach was the main reason for the stop. Still in the dark with headlamps we walked to the beach to find the best spot. And we waited for sunrise. Tide was out and it was not easy to find interesting foreground on empty sandy beach. Sunrise and light was good only slight negative was blank sky, but hey ho… landscape photographer has to work with what he have at that moment. I enjoyed to be out again and I have some decent shots from the morning.
Next plan was to go to Anglesey and check some coastal locations. First we stopped at Rhoscolyn. Sun was high and we walked along the beach to explore. I did not do any pictures here. Next and final stop was planned on the coast not very far from Rhoscolyn village. Coast is dramatic with the cliffs and sea stacks.

Evening was good but I struggled a bit with composition, nevertheless I enjoyed the day. It was a great trip.

It’s been a long winter this year. We had snow here in England in some places, even after Easter. But time has come and I went out with my camera again.

First time I have been to Anglesey not long time ago in December 2012. Straight away I fell in love with the place. I had to come back. This time I wanted to see more, lot more…

Last phototrip of 2012

When I was asked to join my friends for a photo trip in December, I have to admit, I was excited. The destination was Anglesey,  an island off the north-west coast of Wales.

This year’s December was very wet, the South part of Wales was flooded and it was raining when we set off from Nottingham. Our main goal was to photograph the sunset on Black Point, especially Penmon Lighthouse on the coast.

Whitby

Although the main focus for this trip was nearby bay called Saltwick Bay, I ‘ll call this summary :  Whitby. Just because I love this town…

Whitby is a seaside town in North Yorkshire. The place is known for not only for its beauty but also because of Captain Cook. The town has a strong literary tradition and can even be said that the earliest English literature comes from Whitby as Cædmon, the first known Anglo Saxon poet was a monk at the order that used Whitby Abbey during the abbacy of St. Hilda (657–680). Part of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula was set in Whitby, incorporating pieces of local folklore, including the beaching of the Russian ship Dmitri. Stoker discovered the name “Dracula” at the old public library …. but enough history.
