I'm lucky enough to have two images reach the final and be commended to appear the this years book. Its the 10th year and a real privilege to share the pages with the high calibre of winners this year.
Cloud cover taken on a trip to Scotland. The scenery is absolutely breath taking with ever changing conditions makes it a fantastic place for photography.
Taken above Bolehill quarry in the Peak District. Always a real pleasure to have a local image in the book. The Peak District is such a special place, and one of the most varied landscapes in the UK.
Photographer John Gibbs has kindly organised a print auction for fellow photographer Marc Elliot who tragically lost his leg in a motor bike accident. I've been a long admirer of Marc's work on flickr and he is a hugely talented artist.
To bid and support the auction you can visit John's website here. There are some outstanding images to see and a great chance to get hold a beautiful picture for a worthy cause.
The annual Landscape photographer competition has just released this years shortlist. I'm lucky enough to have had three pictures chosen to be entered into the final round of Judging. Good luck to all who have entered and fingers crossed........
I have visited this location many times waiting for the right conditions, and one foggy morning I headed out hopeful of some Autumn colour with something close to what I had imagined. As I entered the archway to the forest I wasn't disappointed, the quiet stillness and atmosphere was perfect. These images are a collection from a few hours exploring the beautiful area.
I've been lucky enough again to receive 2 images shortlisted and one commended for Landscape Photographer of the Year for the 2nd time running. The prestigeous awards book organised by the hugely talented photographer Charlie Waite will be available from November and an exhibition will be running at Waterloo Station till February 2016.
This location is right on my doorstep and i've walked the area many times and has views of the countryside and wonderful pathways through woodland areas where deer can roam. I've taken the odd image in this area but never any I have been hugely happy with. On one particular cold and frosty morning after a recent snow fall mist had risen in the valley. This isolated elements of the landscape making a once busy scene into beautiful simple compositions.
I'll be exhibiting work from the Peak District at the Nicolson Gallery and Museum in Leek from July to September. Its open for 10am - 4pm Monday to Saturday.

Both images where taken this year, one on a misty morning on Mam Tor looking over Hope Valley and the second on a beautiful morning on Curbar Edge.
