Take nothing but photographs. Leave nothing but footprints.

Day Walks

A few of my days out with a camera.

Worcester May 2018

A few pictures from around Worcester, inlcuding some from the Sky Lounge at the top of Cripplegate House.


Malvern May 18

The bluebells at Malvern are stunning again this year, a short walk over the hills from Great Malvern to British Camp.


Chaddesley Bluebells - May '18

The bluebells at Chaddesley Wood.


Malvern April '18

A place I never get tired of, British Camp at Malvern.


Worcester February 2018

A short walk with a long lens.

This is something I like to do every now and then, I usually use a short zoom lens for my pictures, it is easy to use and means you can take photos without much planning. Using a longer lens means thinking more about the pictures you can take and how to frame the images better.


Stourport and Habberley Valley

Local to me and often overlooked is the canal town of Stourport and Habberley Valley.


North Wales

A few pictures from a trip to the land of long place names.


The Forest of Dean

A day out in the Forest of Dean, including walking the incredible sculpture trail.


Snow in Worcester

A few pictures of the recent snow in Worcester.


Porlock

During my recent stay in Somerset I managed to get over to Porlock for the day. a lovely little village with a fantastic harbour.


Minehead & Dunster

I was working as a volunteer recently in Minehead and managed a few short walks around the local area.


Cardiff to Barry Island

A couple of days coast walking inĀ  a new place, Cardiff to Barry Island.



Devon & Cornwall

A short break to my favourite places.


London

A day out in our nation's capital.


Blackpool

Home of the "Kiss Me Quick" hat and the drunken hen party weekenders.

Yes, it is tacky, but that is a part of its faded British charm, I love Blackpool.


Snowy Malvern

Snow on the Malvern Hills, April 2016.


Worcester Floods

The floods in Worcester, early 2016.


The Bluebells at Malvern

Another good year for the Bluebells at Malvern.


Worcester February 2016

Just a short local walk as my mobility is limited at the minute.


Malvern and Worcester - October 2015

A walk over Malvern and around Worcester city.


Worcester October '15

A few pics around Worcester.

 


Malvern October '15

Testing a new camera


Progressions of a Cornish sunset

Chapel Porth beach.


Wheal Coates

Cornwall, by the sea.


Tewkesbury Medieval Festival 2015

The Medieval festival in Tewkesbury has been running since 1984 and is thought to be the largest of its kind in Europe.

Lots of fun for all ages, well worth a visit if you get the chance.


The Thames Path

I walked bits of the Thames Path from the Thames Barrier, down to Woolwich, under the river then up the south bank, I love the mixture of old and new, the rural and the industrial.


The Shard

I love this building and was lucky enough to get a few decent shots on a recent trip to London.


Worcester and Malvern - June 2015

A gentle bimble over the hills.


Gwenapp Pit and Tehidy Woods

Gwenapp is believed to have been built on the sunken head of an old mine, it was made famous by John Wesley, the founder of Methodism and used as an open air church.


Malvern May 2015

A superb year for the bluebells this year.

 


The Wyre Forest, Bewdley and Stourport

A walk in the forest followed by a bimble round Bewdley and Stourport.


Malvern March 2015

A walk over the ridge from British Camp to Great Malvern.

A lovely sunny and suprisingly warm day. I tested a new tracking app on my phone, results are here:

This seems to have similar drawbacks to most of the other apps, massive battery drain. I think most of them will use the battery up in far less than a day.

 

 


British Camp March 2015

Cold, clear and blowy today, but wonderful none the less.

A short walk from the car park at British Camp to Midsummer Hill and back again.


Worcester to Droitwich Feb 2015

Last time I walked this I walked up the river, then along the canal, this time I took a different route along the Worcester to Birmingham canal.

The local volunteers were dragging the crap out of the canal, the ones shown were taken from one small stretch.

I made it just in time, the rain was just starting when I left Droitwich.


Malvern February 2015

A chilly, frosty walk over the hills.

Still busy though, half term meant lots of people on the hills.


Worcester Feb 2015

Replacing the dodgy lens on my camera seemed like a decent excuse.


Birmingham January 2015

A visit to the theatre seemed like a great excuse to take a photo or two.


Worcester to Droitwich January 2015

A stroll up the river and along the canal to Droitwich.


Malvern January 2015

My first proper walk of the year, over the hills into Great Malvern.

Chilly, but stunningly beautiful and the hills were quiet.


Minehead, Dunster and the Dream Garden October 2014

On the way back to the South West Coast Path, another day out.
