Aurora Borealis at Saltburn by the Sea, UK. Feb 27th 2014
After years of chasing them including a fruitless trip to Iceland in 2012, I finally managed to find them. Two miles from my house. Couldn’t see much with the naked eye but the camera didn’t let me down!

Errington Street, Brotton, UK
A snapshot of the village where I currently live. An ex-ironstone mining village in the north-east of England that has seen better and more vibrant days.
I managed to pick up a Yashica T3 Super for a cheap price on eBay and took it out for a test shoot. I love shooting into the light. Some people say you shouldn’t shoot into the light. I always do because somehow I know it’s going to be beautiful.

Ralph Cross, North Yorkshire Moors, UK
The ancient stone crosses and boundary markers of the North York Moors are a well-known sight, with the most famous, Ralph Cross, used on the National Park’s logo.
While it is most likely a boundary marker, a common folk-tale is that a farmer called Ralph from Danby found the dead body of a traveller at this spot. He was so moved by this that he decided to erect a cross in memory of this poor unfortunate traveller, who had starved to death and was found to be penniless. Ralph had a hollow carved into the top of the cross so that more wealthy travellers, those on horseback, might place a few coins for the benefit of any less fortunate travellers, or as a thanksgiving for having reached this point on their journey. The poor traveller was able to take a coin, if he/she could reach the hollow, and buy a hot meal at the nearest inn.
