There had been a big solar flare arriving on planet earth around the 20th Jan, which lit up the northern skies with some good displays of the Northern Lights. Me being a little busy missed out on the chance of seeing these and I made a last ditch attempt to see if there were any [...]

The Dragons Back Derbyshire

A day of camera tuition with James (Granty) Grant – http://jamesgphotography.co.uk/ took us out to a delightful part of Derbyshire. Chrome Hill is just south of Buxton, and is a favourite location for James – usually nice and peaceful and very photogenic. I’ve been using a Sony A700 camera for a year or so, and [...]
