Dorset Landscape Photography: WASHED UP

Its been a very long time since my last landscape post, but here is a mono long exposure shot while working on my uni projects again


Its by no means anything special but its one of a few I’m working on editing at the moment



Available as a print, as always, and any feedback welcome


A bleak Weymouth Day

I shot this small series while shooting for a uni project I was working on.

my Aim was to show the bleak reality of a coastal town out of tourist season. A contrast from the busy beaches and bustling shops.  To shoot this one i decided to use my new lens baby muse, and limit it to just a f5.6 aperture. This is a very soft lens and gave itself well to the concept i had. the images have then been edited in LR to reflect a moody and grainy scene, with dark blacks and lots of film grain added.


I think it works Really well, this here is a small selection of what was shot  on the day, I may as time goes on release more, or i may not. Who knows.


I may also revisit in the summer with the same kit and same idea but shoot weymouth at its busiest and compare the two.













And thats it, I hope you have enjoyed looking at these, Any prints or questions please ask!



Dorset Landscape Photography: S A V I O U R II

Hi all


Never realised I hadn’t shared this image with you all! Shot back in September when I had a day off from the day job.

Having moved house recently (might I add never in wedding season again!) I’m within walking distance of the Nothe Fort area of Weymouth.

The day was very overcast with broken clouds, the sort I love for Long exposure work. The wind started off seeming promising as the clouds were moving quickly, so would create some great shapes. However it was probably gusting 40mph! not great for keeping a camera shake free for 2min plus!.

Any images I had shot at the end of the pier where there is a large metal viewpoint with a great spiral staircase, were completely unusable due to the vibrations through the camera being buffeted by the gusts.

So back up plan in place, I retreated to the base of the pier sheltered by the fort itself. Where there is a Life Buoy attached to the railings. I’ve shot similar LE’s before.

Shot on the Canon 5dMKii, 17-40 @20mm, ISO 50, F/14, 99 seconds

Wheat Fields

Wheat Fields

In the Summer it Can be a struggle to get out and shoot, what with the Daft High heat we’ve had recently, To the normal Boring Blue sky’s and lack of interesting cloud, Harsh light and Boring One tone green.But none the less Went out for a Drive around some of the lanes here, And found this Wheat Field, So with a Long Exposure and a Black and White Conversion to add some interest and Mood to the summer Scene.

So it Can be worth it, But im Still Looking forward to Autumn and Winter That’s the Type of Weather I love.

Also for those of you who read the photography magazines One of my Images Of Lyme Regis had been featured in this months Digital Photo, So if you get a chance Do please check it out


Maiden Castle Dorchester

Maiden Castle Dorchester

This was shot from the top of Maiden Castle In Dorchester, an old Hill top castle, None of which remains, just the steep grassy banks. Found this Great broken gate for some foreground interest. Taken as the sun set for some nice soft light and the star burst as it set.
A tricky Exposure to take 5 stops of Filtration on the Sky to level out the scene a bit, Shot at F22 On my Canon 1DS II And the 17-40 l To get the star burst I wanted.
