Sunrise at Corfe castle with @nseymourphoto. Not the conditions we were hoping for, but still a beautiful morning and pretty happy with how this turned out. 3 exposures used here, a long exposure for the sky, one for the castle and hills, and another for the sunstar. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
There are certain places you dream of going, but you just can't see how it could happen because of your life circumstances or finances etc. Don't give up, doors will open, things change and happen in your life that you never expected and those dreams and places you wish you could experience become a reality. I have proof 👆
Door to the galaxy.
What an incredible weekend of clear skies. 2 nights in a row shooting the milky way. It's summer in the UK, and that means that the milky way is only visible after midnight when twighligt has faded. Then you only have a 3 hour window before twighligt starts for sunrise. Two verrrrry long nights, but totally worth it.

Shot this with the highly impressive @pluto_trigger. This Bluetooth remote controlled by a brilliant app is packed with some incredible features, 24 to be exact. With sensors built in to the trigger it is capable of triggering lightning strikes, sounds, infrared and comes with a lazer which you can also use to shine into one of the sensors to trigger the remote. One of my favourite features is the built in ND calculator which works out your exposure taken from your base exposure and ND filter, it comes up with the exposure time and all you need to do is tap the button on the app and away it goes. Seriously, this gadget is a revelation. Check out @pluto_trigger to see more.

The wise sleeper.
Yesterday was an incredible experience for me. I spent about an hour shooting this owl in Micheldever forest while it was fast asleep. I consider this a huge privilege and a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was so close to him that I could have touched him. Not one bit concerned by my company, the only thing it wanted was sleep! The purple background are bluebells. #NTchallenge @nationaltrust
It's been a joy shooting in these enchanted woods the last couple weeks. Yesterday I was treated to an encounter with an owl, which I'm still trying to comprehend. Anyway, here's a shot I took last weekend while out with @nseymourphoto. Glorious sunlight and the bluebells in full bloom!
Where is your happy place? A place you feel at peace, an escape from the crazy everyday life. Where you can connect with nature again and forget about everything else? Mine is fast becoming these magical forests in my area. The coast would have to be up there too ☺️
