The photo I’m sharing today is a photo taken from the highest point in South England,Leith Hill in Surrey. It’s a hill just south west of London that commands an awesome view of the landscape around it. Atop the hill is some kind of ancient Gothic tower where you can take some of the best photos in all of England! This photo itself was taken from the base of the tower — I loved the light, and the family having…

This is a recent photo of mine, taken on some heathland in Surrey. For some reason (which I still don’t know!) a herd of Highland Cattle had been transplanted to this heathland in the South of England — some 600 miles away from where they’re meant to be. Anyway, the focus of the photo is undoubtedly the cow, but it just so happened that the sky decided to spoil me at the same time. It may not look very real…

If you’re an avid Sebite (OK, perhaps it’s too early to go and deify myself) you’re probably well-aware of the what’s to follow… but it wouldn’t do any harm to read all about what’s hapnin’ (too much Marvin Gaye!) here on my blog.

This is an ‘original’ photo with only minimal cropping, and no colour correction. This is a post…

We rarely get sunsets worth mentioning in Sussex — our atmospheric conditions are mediocre at best. However, with a little bit of fun (HDR), I created a landscape that has an awful lot to look at  — the tree in the foreground, the line of trees in the background, the details of the grass. And of course, quite a spectacular sunset! This is a post for Skywatch Friday.
