A studio shot of an orchid – another example of nature crying out to be photographed.

So this morning I did as I was told.

Nikon D800 + 70mm macro lens, SB800 Speedlight bounced off a white umbrella.


Riding High

Taken at the Sovereign Park SkatePark in Eastbourne this afternoon. This guy was brilliant!!

What a place to practice your fast-action photography.

On my D800 with a 24-120mm lens @ 42mm, ISO800, f/5.6 at 1/8000 sec.

A Gaggle of Geese

Taken at Walton-on-the-Naze, this was one of about six ‘gaggles’ of geese that all moved across the nature reserve at some secret signal.

I was lucky enough to catch these ones in tight formation.

Nikon D800 + 300mm lens @ 240mm, ISO 400, f/7.1 @ 1/1000 sec.


Sometimes just the graphic shape of a blade of grass is all it takes to find beauty in this world.

This was pulled from a field edge on a local walk and then photographed against a black cloth in my table-top studio.

So simple, yet so amazing!
