  • Sunset at the lake

    You can tell that I’ve enjoyed myself when I come home from a walk or a day out with a set of photos. Here are four from a chilly but lovely winter sunset on the shores of Lac Léman last weekend. I’ve loved square-format images since I started taking photos with a medium-format film camera […]

  • Île de Peilz

    I like unusual things and the tiny natural island around 500 metres from the lake shore at Villeneuve, on Lac Léman, certainly fits that bill.

    Random things in February

    Mainly speaking, the month of February is a cold one, when my thoughts start turning to days out and summer temperatures. That being said, I still managed to get out on some trips, with the main goal of getting some exercise.

  • Using a drone subtly

    Trebarwith Strand

    We recently spent a lovely couple of weeks on holiday, touring the south of England and spending a full week in Cornwall.

    The luck and beauty of life

    We are ever grateful for the opportunity to live in such a beautiful country. For the luck which means that we are of sufficient means to decide, based on a weather forecast, to drive for fifteen minutes and ascend in a rattling funicular cabin to a place which feels like the top of the world. All to […]

    Locals and photographers alike gather on the hill near Lausanne’s cathedral to watch – and photograph – the summer sunsets. The northern shore of Lac Léman is one of the best places in the country from which to photograph the sunset.

    Ask anyone who knows me well, and they’ll probably be familiar with me excusing myself during dinner to step out and photograph the sunset.

  • Experiments in HDR

    I’ve been meaning to spend a little time to sit down and really get to grips with the High Dynamic Range editing process. For the unititiated, the HDR is a photo which contains detail within a much wider range of tones than is possible through an individual shot, from deep shadows to bright highlights.

  • A Sun, Drowning

    As office workers and shop girls sway home from the city on the dusty local train, the sun reaches out orange tendrils of light. Plucking ineffectually at the clouds, trying desperately to gain purchase, it sinks inexorably in the rolling landscape before the clouds catch fire and shadow overwhelms its realm. The death is ferocious: […]
