Waiting for a boat
Long exposure at a jetty on Derwent Water near Keswick in the Lake district at sunset. About 10 minutes after I took this image the heavens opened. Such a peaceful spot, there was only one other photographer there at the time
This pier is loctaed in Boscombe at the east side of Bournemouth, it was refurbished in 2008 and won 'Pier of the Year' in 2010. There have been several issues with the pier in recent years including hairline fractures of each of the concrete support piles plus lights that leak rainwater shorting out the electrics. I think the Victorians may have done a better job building piers.

Lighting the Sky
The grade II listed 'Low Lighthouse' at Burnham on Sea, Somerset. Captured on an evening when there was a particulalrly vibrant sunset. I actually toned the colours down a bit! Caught the shadows from the legs nicely.
Evening at the Pier
The soft, warm amber glow over Clevedon pier moments after sunset on an April evening.
The Scaur water flowing through the old rocks at Capenoch, near Penpont in South West Scotland
Clifton Suspension Bridge

Into the blue
Boscombe Pier near Bournemouth in the blue hour, with the last glow of a November sunset.
The Tree & The Tower
A shot of a tree growing in Lake Vyrnwy with the Gothic straining tower in the background as a contrast against natures beauty. A polariser was used to 'see' through the water, whilst a longer exposure helped both soften the water and give motion to the clouds
Rockpools at Gullane Beach, near Edinburgh, in the early evening autumn sun. I was waiting for a friend to arrive as we were giong to do a sunset shoot, but took the opportunity to capture these pools in the warm glow of the evening sun
'The Blocks' otherwise known as 'the zig zag pier' is a concrete breakwater at St Monans in the East Nuek of Fife. For over a century it has helped shelter and calm the waters into the main harbour.
View down Langdale Valley looking towards Bowfell and Crinkle Crags in the Lake District. I was lucky to get some great sunlight on the hillsides before the coulds rolled in
The Forth Contrast
The Forth Rail Bridge in the late evening, with the Road bridge in the background and the new road bridge under construction beyond that. Contrasts between old and new, plus the weather with the dark clouds moving over the sun and the blue skiy.
Three Forth Bridges from different eras, the Forth Rail bridge in the foreground with the newer road bridges beyond, The dynamic clouds help create the mood in this black and white version
Colourful winter reflections of the hills and water house on a still Talla resevoir, Tweedsmuir
The Talla resevoir water house, reflected along with the hills, clouds and vapour trail, such a peaceful place on a winters afternoon

Ray of Light
Star trails over the old lighthouse at Southerness on the Dumfries & Galloway coast, taken on what has become a rare night of clear skies in South west Scotland
A New Day Dawns
The pre dawn light reaches over the horizon at Southerness lighthouse on the Solway Coast in South West Scotland. This is a really peaceful spot to watch the sun come up and see the colour reflected in the waterpools left by the receding tide
