Area covered

The main geographical areas I cover are the three national parks stretching across the north of England, and the Yorkshire coast and Wolds:

The North York Moors national park, which is my speciality, lies at my doorstep. The moors are the largest area of continous heather moorland in England and Wales, and are spectacular in August. In the winter they can be bleak and lonely, but also beautiful when covered with a layer of snow. Spring reveals colourful new foliage in the wooded valleys, and autumn colours can be deliightful.

The Lake District is arguably the most beautiful part of England, and has been a photographic happy hunting ground since my teens.

The Yorkshire Dales have a unique character of their own, and one could spend a lifetime exploring them.

The Yorkshire coast is spectacular, with little fishing villages like Staithes nestling amongst towering cliffs in the north. Further south are the historic fishing ports and family seaside resorts of of Whitby, Scarborough and Bridlington.

The Yorkshire Wolds are an impressive area of rolling chalk downs extending from Bridlington in the north to Hessle on the Humber in the south, covering both East and North Yorkshire.

My photography is of course not strictly limited to these areas, and I often enjoy photographic sorties to other parts of the UK.
