Elements of Fire Devon, March 2019

Reading Time: 1

I can’t think of anything more difficult to photograph than a fire juggler. The scene is pitch black, with quick bursts of very bright light from the flames. Trying to photograph the person, the flames and the ambience is incredibly difficult. This time I used a mix of flash and a beach bonfire to get these results…

Torbay is such a lovely place to live

Reading Time: 1 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…

Reading Time: 1 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

Reading Time: 1 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.
