Fishing Pond at Abney Hall Park

Fishing Pond at Abney Hall Park

Taken back in March of this year, the photograph above shows the fishing pond at Abney Hall Park. It was a lovely day when we went, Claire and I had a great picnic. It is definitely somewhere I hope to go back to this summer. Apart from the few twigs in the bottom left hand corner of this picture I really like the image. I realise it doesn’t have a particular focal point but I wanted to share the image to show you want a nice place Abney Hall Park is. More of an afternoon walk / picnic place rather than a full day out, but I know that many people don’t know where the park is or have never been to it.

Castlefield canal boats at night

Castlefield canal boats at night

I am sat here in my one of my grandparents arm chairs after what seems a whistle stop tour of London and a complete mad rush of a week before hand. I am spending the next few days resting with family in Nantwich in Cheshire, where I am hoping to get a chance to write up my adventures, plan my next couple of photographic trips and work on some new features for the website. The photograph above is of Castlefield, the boat to the right still wasn’t in the perfect place but I have now worked out that Monday evenings are the most popular for boats mooring overnight on this part of the canal. The picture above was taken this time last week on my previously talked about night walk around Manchester taking photos for a competition. I didn’t enter this one but now I have enhanced it a little for the website it looks much better than I had originally thought, oh well I can’t do everything!

Sunset reflection on GMEX, Manchester

Sunset reflection on GMEX, Manchester

The photograph above shows the side of GMEX Exhibition Centre from the GMEX Metrolink platform. It was taken on the 25th of January, after being inspired by a few interesting reflection photos online I have started looking out for reflections in my photography. I feel this sunset works particularly well on the side of the GMEX building in Manchester.

Boats at Dunbar Harbour, Scotland

Boats at Dunbar Harbour, Scotland

Travelling onwards to the East coast of Scotland we came across the historic picturesque town of Dunbar. It had a very interest harbour with hundreds of seagulls and dozens of boats of various types. I really enjoyed the interesting photographs from around the bay, climbing on rocks and sunbathing by the sea. The photograph below shows a couple of the fishing boats inside the harbour walls.
