With Christmas just around the corner I thought i would take the opportunity to mention some promos available on some of the online shop where i sell my images. Who dosent like a discount, right?

Tonight’s Supermoon is a combination of two astronomical phenomena – a Full Moon and lunar perigee. Perigee is the lowest point in the Moon’s orbit when the lunar orb is closest to our planet. If a Full Moon peaks within 90 percent of perigee, it is popularly known as a Supermoon. As a result, a Supermoon can appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than an average Full Moon.

August Photos 2019

Some of my recent photos and edits, a mixed bunch as I get bored editing similar photos one after another, hope you like them; let me know in the comments below if you have a favourite.

Peace rose, formally Rosa Madame A. Meillan’, is a well-known and successful garden rose. The cultivar has large flowers of a light yellow to cream color, slightly flushed at the petal edges with crimson-pink.
Sempervivum is a genus of about 40 species of flowering plants in the Crassulaceae family, commonly known as houseleeks. Other common names include liveforever and hen and chicks. They are succulent perennials forming mats composed of tufted leaves in rosettes.
At the time this piece was created, watch movements and cases were sold separately. A watchmaker would craft each timepiece by hand, and then wholesale his movements to jewellers, who might either fit the piece in a particular case, or, allow the customer to choose a case and watch separately. This custom has resulted in many watches which bear the name of one person or maker on the movement and a different one on the case or face of the watch. The movement of this watch is a fusee, a rare type of movement that runs not just on coiled springs, but also employs a grooved cone wound with a tiny chain, which coils around another post in a pulley system. Inspired by the winches and counter balances of the rigging of sailing ships, this method was used to refine the timekeeping of the movement by regulating the speed at which the mainspring unwinds. This movement is inscribed with the watchmakers name, Char Davidson, and home city: London. Research could provide no watchmakers registered in London around this time with the name of Davidson, however, a Charles Davidson, watchmaker was operating at this time near Dundee, Scotland. It cannot be proved, but it’s believed that this watch was made in Scotland, but inscribed with the city of sale – London – instead of the city of manufacture – Dundee. There are several reasons that this might have been done, but the most likely is simply to fetch a higher price for a piece marked with the cosmopolitan city ‘London’! This watch, like all fusee movements, is a key wind. Dates back to around 1793

July Photos

Some photos from the last few weeks, managed to get a day out in Snowdonia. The day started off grey and overcase to bright blue skies, which is always a challenge, but as I was on my own there was no rush or plan.

Recently bought a macro lens Tamron 90mm, as i spend a lot of time at home looking after my Dad it seemed a worth while investment especially with all the flowers blossoming in the garden.

The charismatic, pink flower spikes of Foxgloves are famous as both a reminder of the hazy days of summer and of their deadly poisonous nature. Digitalis purpurea while very beautiful with its trumpet like blossoms, are very poisonous to dogs, cats, and even humans! Foxglove contains naturally-occurring poisons that affect the heart, specifically cardenolides or bufadienolides. These poisons are called cardiac glycoside toxins, and they interfere directly with electrolyte balance within the heart muscle. The Latin name, Digitalis, means ‘finger-like’ and refers to the tubular flowers of the Foxglove. It is also the name of the drug that comes from the toxins of Foxgloves and is prescribed for heart conditions.

June Photos Snowdonia

My first day out in over 6 months the weather forecast had showed my chosen day as being the best for the upcoming week.

Where I live on the coast was lovely when I woke and I was excited to be getting out after so long, I even watched a few YouTube refresher videos on using my camera.

It’s nearly a 1 hour drive to the mountains of Snowdonia and the weather had changed dramatically on arrival, most of the day was thick clouds, rain and wind not the ideal weather for a photography day out in the mountains especially when I like to get foreground, middle and distance compositions.

I decided it was pointless being depressed sitting in the car so braved the elements with my 10 stop filter fitted to the camera to try and get some drama.

Here are a few that I managed.

rain clouds and long exposure at Llyn y dywarchen fishing lake and boats, Snowdonoa north Wales, UK
Gwynant Lake one of the most dramatic and beautiful valleys in Wales. Its northern slopes rise to the summit of Wales highest mountain Snowdon and to the south lies the relatively undisturbed hills of Moel y Dyniewyd and the Moelwynion range.
