Danesmead Nature Reserve is a small reserve of woodland near Broxbourne. These photographs were taken during a work through the reserve in early summer.
I tried to show the way that the sunlight streamed through the trees and lit up the vegetation. However, the photos may just be too dark to really get a feeling for the light that day.

A wide sandy beach, a cloudy day, a sea wall and a nuclear power station across the bay...it can can only be an English sea side resort. In this case the town of Burnham on Sea in Somerset to be precise. These landscape photographs were taken on a short walk along the beach with some friends on a breezy Saturday morning in June. The images were shot with a Holga 120GCFN loaded with Shanghai GP3.
For a cheap film, Shanghai gives some great results and is rapidly becoming on of my favourite films.
The photos above are my favourites of that morning but click on the link to see the full gallery of landscape photos.

I visited Knebworth House a couple of times this summer taking a variety of cameras with me. Knebworth is a stately home in Hertfordshire and has become famous for hosting rock concerts. It has attracted some of the great monsters of rock such as Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden, Oasis, Robbie Williams (!?) etc, etc,
Less well known is the fact that some of the best British Scientists in the world have been busily bringing monsters of a different kind, ie dinosaurs, back to life in Knebworth's grounds; creating a real life Jurassic Park in Hertfordshire.
While two year old toddlers screamed in terror I managed to keep calm and shoot these puppies in glorious 3D with my faithful Nishika N8000. Vincent Price would have been proud of me and I hope you are too. For the technically minded the film used was Kodak Pro Color which I bought on Ebay off some bloke in Thailand.
I also manged to shoot off a few rolls with my holga and Vivitar UWS without ending up in a T Rex's tummy - those shots are buried somewhere in my huge backlog of images to process. In the meantime feast your eyes on these 3D corkers. Grrrrrrrooooooaaaaarr!
