Winter cycling

It can be harder to go cycling in the Winter; the days are short and the weather is colder. However, a ride through open countryside, with the wind at your back and the low winter sun illuminating leafless trees and ploughed fields, can be a breathtaking experience.

The Shape of Trees

On cycle rides I notice the changing tree shapes throughout the seasons, . This inspired the “Shape of Trees” project, which captures the various changes trees undergo throughout the year and as they age. A calendar featuring these photographs is available for purchase for 2024.


In praise of the humble beanbag! It’s an affordable and portable photographic accessory for when you want to support your camera for longer shutter speeds and don’t have your tripod with you.

A cycle ride

From the sea to the city

Sometimes I have ridden to the end of the road and looked out upon the sea. In July 2023 I went the other way. After holidaying near the North Norfolk coast I cycled back into Norwich to catch the train home.


Much of my photography is made whilst out cycling on country lanes. As I ride along I have plenty of time to look around me, and one thing I notice are the “Slow” signs painted on the road. This is a meditation on the painted sign.


Keeping a journal of your photographs can slow down how you photograph, engage you with your subject and makes your photographs more real.


What always draws me to the Fens time and time again is the sky. Nothing grows taller than the trees so the overhead panaroma is almost uninterrupted.
