Bowder Stone, Borrowdale

People have been visiting the Bowder Stone for over two hundred years, where there has even been a ladder in place since the 1800s so that even genteel visitors may mount the rock and enjoy the views. The views are much less exciting these days, being masked as they are by the surrounding forest.

Capo Sant’Andrea, Elba

The rocky coastline in the north west of Elba is unique in the world; granite magma, deposited by a volcano seven million years ago, is impregnated with orthoclase crystals and forms a peculiar, smoothed surface.

Eagle-eyed viewers will also notice my new logo embedded into this photo, which has been professionally designed for me and which forms a part of the […]

On my first ever trip to Scotland, to visit Jo for the first time, I had to suffer a day without her while she worked. Jo’s parents took me to a local beauty spot and I tried to distract myself by taking landscape photos whilst they walked their dogs. The peaty, dark brown river, running […]
