Ongoing progress...

I got another photo used as a cover-shot, same mag as the last one... The Plymouth Magazine, Jan 2012 issue - great credit given on p3.

They want to use another one of mine for the March issue - negotiations ongoing, so watch this space.

Quietly Flows The River

To make up for sneaking one past you, this one is sill wet from the digital darkroom

The Jewel Called Spitchwick

I do like visiting Spitchwick, which is on the margins of Dartmoor National Park. On this occasion it was back in September on a photoshoot with a friend. It's not a widely known spot but it is typical of those undeveloped, natural beauty spots that are hidden from the hoi polloi that you find all over the UK.

Quietly Flows The River

You'll find cows wandering around from time to time and there's also the occasional family group of Dartmoor Ponies that comes visiting. This really is the River Dart in one of its most beautiful aspects and I hope you thouroughly enjoy my portrayal.

In a little while I'll be using it for a postcard and a wide range of greetings cards for my English Scenes series in my Zazzle store. Of course, the cards will be in addition to my gallery-style poster prints and stretch-frame canvases.

Do you know of any little-known spots like this?

Sneaked this out without showing you

Here's one I processed a few weeks ago...

Naughty, naughty

I know, I should have posted about it here - I'm admitting nothing about any more such oversights -- yet!
Beyond the Pale
I loved the fences that are used to separate and encourage areas of wild grass growth on the sand dunes, I've used them in a number of shots and this is one of my favourites.

I'm very happy with the way the title turned out. It can take me a few hours to settle on a title but this one sought me out. I won't spoil it by explaining, but feel free to say what you think in the comments, if you like :)

(More confessions to come!)

Life has been getting in the way of photography... but the worst of the redecorating that needed to be done is over. Hooray! A few touch-up jobs remain and that's it for downstairs.

Another from Lyme Regis

I still managed to squeeze in some time for the digital darkroom and this is one of the results. I noticed this family scene and it struck me as so typical of a British day out at the seaside.

It's just one of those little vignettes that plays itself out - has done for centuries, will do until we poison it all.
Typical British Family Day Out at the Seaside, April 24th 2011
Hmm... I didn't quite mean to sound so depressing in that last sentence but I'm sure you know what I mean :)

PS My dear readers, wouldn't it be just great if the family bumped into this and got in touch so I could send them a signed print?  Well, I think so :) If you do, please share!
