Inspired by the paintings of Monet, this week’s Picture of the Week is a splash of summery woodland, a glade filled with light in the depths of the dark wood. Not every picture needs to be sharp.

POTW – Santa Cruz Waterlilies

This image has been well received on ePHOTOzine. It was shot, not deep in the jungle, but deep in the jungle displays of the Eden Project. These huge waterlilies are quite unusual and they also add to the pallette of … Continued

POTW – Old and New

In the background we have Sweetheart Abbey (Old) and in the foreground the village of New Abbey (New), although to be fair both are really quite old. A New Year looms upon us, and soon we can look forward again … Continued

POTW – In the Cloud

This is called stretching the concept of a “small building” a bit far maybe, but who needs an excuse for posting a picture of the House in the Clouds in Thorpeness? As is well documented, this was once a simple … Continued

POTW – Three Red Fire Buckets

Plus of course another Small Building, and I just love finding small buildings to photograph. Here the image also relies heavily on the geometrical patterns, all part of the interest in architectural shots. We see plenty of huge pixel counts … Continued

POTW – Beauty in Decay

We may not have any abandoned French Chateaux or even abandoned asylums nearby, but we do have some modest abandoned little chapels in our local cemeteries. The light is constantly changing, bringing out new colours and textures and there is … Continued

This week’s Picture of the Week is from our rainy visit to Arley Hall, definitely a home from home. There’s something wonderful about the colour when it’s raining, and it is some reward for wandering about getting thoroughly wet!

POTW – Volcano!

On 5th November we went to the Bonfire Night and Fireworks Display at Lancashire Mining Museum, along with a couple of thousand other people. There’s something almost hypnotic about watching a bonfire catch and grow, and this is my favourite … Continued

POTW – Derelict Chapel Interior

Atherton Cemetery has two derelict chapels sitting next to each other and there is another at Tyldesley. These always hold a fascination as we always want to know what lies within. This image is from a sequence shot when we … Continued

POTW – Very Cosy

I didn’t ask, but this was an oddity at Lancashire Mining Museum, previously known as Astley Green Mining Museum. It was a gorgeous, sunny Thursday afternoon and I was shooting location pictures for a soon to be seen review. This … Continued

POTW – Infra-red in Tyldesley

The new IR-converted DSLR is going well, and this week some warm weather tempted me out into Tyldesley Cemetery in the hope that there was plenty of IR light around. And there was. I liked the tones that came out … Continued

I do like quirky titles for images, and this week the Picture of the Week is from The Photography Show at the NEC. The quirky title has a quirky image to go with it, courtesy of the exhibition organisers who … Continued
