Torbay is such a lovely place to live

It’s been high tide at sunrise all week which makes it difficult to find a location with any foreground interest.

This morning I headed over to Anstey’s Cove in Torquay. This is a nice location because it has some rocks, the sun can glow nicely on the rocks and there are a few compositions. The sun remained firmly behind a thin band of cloud so no golden sun on the rocks this morning, but it sure did look and feel peaceful.

Have a great weekend everyone!

An epic sunrise in Paignton this morning…

The colours were exploding, the waves were crashing and the coffee was smashing 😀☕️😀

As soon as I woke up I could see that the colours were likely to explode in the sky. I grabbed a quick flask of coffee and headed down to Paignton Pier as quickly as possible. On arrival I was greeted with high waves, surfers and a few other photographers.

I’ve never had so many keeper shots in one session but out of them all, this one really stood out the most.

One of the best things about working in Devon

I loving living and working in Devon. When you go out and stretch your legs, you’re never quite sure what you might see while you’re out.

I went out yesterday afternoon and came across two seals, one of which was very interested in me and my camera…

When it comes to seals, you should never swim with them, feed them or try to disturb them. I was stood in one place and the seal came right up to me. I admit, I have never been this close before, but that is what makes living here so brilliant, lots of chances to get to experience the things you’d love to experience.

What a cracking week it has been at the Paignton Regatta. Last night there was Klassica and Wrong Jovi performing live on the Riviera FM stage. There was a huge turn out for this and it was a great evening of entertainment!

There is still a few tribute bands to go; Bee Gees, Take That and Elvis. Check the Paignton Regatta website for more details.

Here are a few of my photos from the evening…

Some of you may know that I co-host the #TorbayHour radio show on Riviera FM on Mondays. Rivera FM has a stage and live music will be going on all week. I went there yesterday and it was a really great day with lots of good music.

These were some of the pictures I took…

The live music carries on all week on Paignton Green from 10am each day.
