2019, July 14th. Photography, a new dimension....

Although it I haven’t posted new images for a while I haven’t been idle. I’ve been working on two projects  compiling a series of stereo (3D) View-Master images of the ‘City of York’ and ‘The Great Yorkshire Show, 2019’. Stereo photography presents new challenges, not least of which is thinking in 3D to provide depth to an image. Also the picture post card type approach, blue skies, fluffy white clouds, and brightly coloured flowers in the foreground are ideal for stereo but something I usually try to avoid in my usual landscape photography. The inclusion of people is also beneficial. I very rarely crop my images, preferring to retain the full frame rectangular format of the camera.  The View-Master format however is almost square, so consideration for this must also be taken into account when taking the photograph.  

Some of the photographs  are shown in the ‘York’ page, not alas in 3D, but as one half of the stereo pair.

As a child in the early 1960’s my introduction to landscape photography  was through the 3D scenic views in my View-Master stereoscope. In producing my own stereo reels I feel that my photography has come full circle, or should that be ‘sphere’?

It is many years since I’d ventured to the top of Penyghent. I was pleasantly surprised that the climb to the summit was not too taxing despite the burden of a heavy backpack of camera equipment and a tripod.

The weather from a photography standpoint was not great, but the handful of images I captured were pleasing enough.

2020, February 8th, The Washburn Valley.


Family commitments have, in the past couple of months, conspired to keep me away from photography. It was with some relief therefore that I managed to ‘escape’ today and head for the Washburn Valley. Conditions were  good and I managed to capture a  few pleasing images.


The Washburn Valley

2020, March 5th, Southerscales

I first visited this region some 15 years ago accompanied by the photographer Derry Brabbs; that was on a hot summers day in July. Conditions were a little different today, even so I was hoping for a little more snow on the fell tops!
