Douwe is very active and playful. The challenge for this shot was to have him stay still for at least a few moments.
In this portrait I have accentuated the yellow end of the colour spectrum and added a textured effect known as craquelure.
Here I enjoyed the contrast between the dark, foreboding storm clouds in the background and the strong sunlight that was still shining on my favourite Clydesdale.
Photo of a friend, taken in natural light near a window with a slight golden tone added.
Argos was perhaps the cleverest dog I’ve ever known. His favourite snack was an apple core. Somehow he could detect the exact moment you had finished eating your apple!
More by good luck than by careful planning, as I was photographing something completely different I happened to catch this shot of a local cat looking very regal on a fence.
Taken as the rising sun was reflecting golden outlines along the fence and from these two adventurous dogs.
Taken on a crisp misty morning in winter, looking directly towards the rising sun.
An attempt to highlight the colours of the flower heads and the vase, by reducing the remainder of the photo to sepia.
I guess everyone needs a few sunset photos in their collection, so here’s one of mine. Taken at dusk from my home in Hastings.
