TRIP: Best photograph from my Scotland Trip.

Having sat down and started to run through some of the photographs from my trip to The Lakes and North Scotland, I came across this picture...

This is one of those pictures where a detail that you neither aimed to capture, or indeed realised you'd captured, changes the whole character of the photograph. Imagine my suprise.

This will always make me chuckle...

TRIP: Afternoon at Lulworth Cove.

The light last weekend down here in Dorset, was pretty spectacular.

Having spent the last few weeks on the road participating in exhibitions and shows, I feel very glad to be out of the city and back in the expansive arms of the countryside!

I've been wanting to paint some more seascapes for a while now (well, ever since painting 'Spring Tide'' really) so over the weekend I made several trips down to Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, sketching and photographing the epic closing of a day. Clear, still, winter air, with waves of warmth from the last of the sun.

The trips have yielded a handful of images that will hopefully make their way to becoming a painting.

Enjoy the photos.
