On a recent visit to the Lake District, I used some free time to create some images of Stockghyll Waterfall.
Tips and photos from the Durham stage of the 2013 Pearl Izumi Tour Series.
When I added up a new wideangle lens, graduate filters and a clear south-eastern sky forecast at dawn, my inspiration screamed “COAST”. This was the result from my shoot in December.
When I needed a new camera bag to cope with a longer lens, I decided to go for a rucksack. After a few months of use, this post summarises how I’ve found my choice.
My photography friends accuse me of “pixel-peeping”, but I find that if the details are right then you have a sound base to build on. So when I found focussing problems on one of my lenses, it set me on a small voyage of discovery into autofocusing and microadjustment. This second instalment details my final testing process and results.

My search for the perfect way of carrying an SLR camera for fellwalking is over! For now… 🙂
Leave your zooms at home! Limit yourself to a single prime lens and see the range of compositions and styles you can achieve. This post includes bluebell and woodland images taken using a Canon 100mm macro lens.
Having trouble choosing between the 70-200mm zoom lenses in Canon’s range? You are not alone. I’ve just been through the same difficulty and share my thoughts and conclusions in case it will help you decide for yourself.
In my continuing search for the perfect way to carry an SLR camera while fellwalking, this part details a chest-mounted pouch system and its first trial.
