Following on from the last image of Bamford Edge... I don't usually post several images from a location in succession but it seemed right to do so on this occasion as this directly follows the last image in terms of the reason for being there.

A fabulous sunset and and sky on Bamford Edge which, if we had left it much longer we would have missed, "on the last minute" would probably be the best way to describe our arrival here.. I do like to get to places early and set up and wait but a visit to a friend of mine nearby did delay us a while, as did the climb up to here after a Steak and Ale Pie in the Pub.... luckily it all worked out nicely, apart from being very out of breath for quite a while!

I was hoping to get the drone up here for a timelapse of the sunset but the wind had other ideas, it took most of my concentration to watch where I was standing here as about a foot behind me was an enormous drop which I really didn't fancy ending up at the bottom of...

Myself and Mike Muddyboots decided to head out into the Peak District for a days shooting as it it looked by far the best weather wise out of a lot of potential places.

The Bloooming Heather was in absolutely top form pretty much everywhere we went, the idea of getting the drone up to capture it though didn'y happen due to it being incredibly windy, on Higger Tor it was actually hard to stand up at one point it was that strong!

After a great feed and refeulling at the fantastic Red Lion village pub at Litton, we decided that seeing as sunset looked to have good potential that we would go up Bamford Edge to see what we could get.. The weather certainly didn't dissapoint with some cracking light washing over the heather and a decent sky, I've managed a few shots from here that I'm happy with, this being the first on the walk up to the far edge, the warm light was just so good I had to stop and set up, before carrying on to the further location.

A great evening on the tops, and once the sun had set, after a brief period of nothing much at all, once again the sky came back with a big purple and gold colour aftershow. A real gem of an evening. We also met up with fellow Flickerite Emma (Meh) who was up there shooting, great to meet you.

Skógafoss is one of the largest and well known falls in Iceland, it's sheer power as it crashes over the sea cliffs has to be seen to be appreciated, if you walk anywhere near toward the bottom of it it's like being in an industrial power shower, and the noise is truly incredible.

The one downside of this place is such is its beauty it's can get very busy, during the day coaches are pulling in all the time with tourists eager to get their selfie sticks out and generally run all over the place like out of control ants. This was the case on this day, I was over here with a few friends and I simply couldn't get the shot I wanted due to rain and the aforementioned ant swarm... they all wanted to go and do a snow mobile tour over the glacier and were getting a bit impatient with my requests to spend a long time at each location which to be honest if you aren't a photographer I totally get! So I told them to leave me here for 5 hours while they went and did that and then come back and find me later....

5 hours may seem a long time but that's 5 hours I've got to get my shots and also to have a good explore of the area well past the top of the falls.

The time went in no time and I got several shots I liked with hardly anyone around (I've included a single 'ant' for scale here), plus some others in locations rarely shot way back along the River Skoga.

I can't believe how long ago this was now, and that I've never posted it up here.

A shot from the far North East of Iceland, it's freezing cold and about 2 in the morning, the Aurora has decided to come out to play and deprive me of sleep this night, not that I'm complaining, I love a good sleep but not if this is going on outside!!

It was out for a couple of hours weaving around over the mountains, and twirling about in unfathomable patterns in the sky.

This is a series of stacked images at the same settings to give the star trail effect, along with the Aurora as I hadn't really got anything like this on this trip and it was out for so long it gave a more than ample chance to try different things.

The little hut, which made a great foreground subject, is in fact owned by the farm we were staying on. It's used for smoking Trout they catch in the river (that is just out of sight), after a nice lie in in the morning, we got to eat the freshly smoked Trout at breakfast.

A very early morning shoot at Llandudno and it's splendid Victorian Pier, after spending a few hours asleep in the car (Top tip - don't ever try sleeping in an Abarth 595) following shooting Comet Neowise on Angelsey the previous evening.

The mornings sunrise here wasn't bad at all but the light was never going to last very long due to the massive bank of clouds just above the horiizon, I decided to do a long exposure here as although the clouds were moving very slowly, there in theory should be plenty of cloud movement across the scene with a heavily filtered setup vastly reducing the light, giving me a nice long exposure time, which was the case.

I though about removing the wind turbine in the distance from the image but have left them in as I think they contrast well in the very brightest part of the image, and to be honest I don't really mind them.

The Pier gets extremely busy during the day with 100's of people on it at any one time, so it was great to see it so peaceful and eerily deserted.
