And to reap that golden land This is a shot I took just after sunrise in a wheat field near Cambridge, UK. I wanted to capture the sunlight coming through the power lines, and I was impressed with how well camera managed to capture this.

I came to Oxford in the light This is a shot I took of the Radcliffe Camera building in the centre of Oxford, UK. To get the vantage point I climbed to the lookout point in the nearby steeple tower of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin church. I took this shot using the OnePlus 5 panorama mode setting. I did some post production to bring out the detail in the sky and the buildings.

A Certain Slant Of Sunlight I took this photo in Petworth Park, West Sussex in the late evening around the start of the golden hour. I liked the perspective lines cast by the long shadows of the trees. Unfortunately I didn't have a lot of creative control over the brightness of the sky, but I managed to tweak it somewhat in post production.

On silver wings of steel I took this photo of the A380 that was demonstrated at Farnborough Airshow 2014. I was happy with the level of detail that was captured even though I was using my old sigma zoom lens. It is like a flying skyscraper!

As the sun behind the horizon descends I managed to capture this beautiful sunset scene over a wheat field near where I live in West Sussex, UK. As I was walking through the field I came across the curved tractor track in the wheat that adds nicely to the foreground. I had to do quite a bit on noise reduction in post production though as it was quite a low light scene.

Shapes and shadows all I see This is the superstructure above King's Cross station in London. The darker part of the image was actually lit in purple light, but I decided that this capture would be best as a monochrome image, particularly because of the contrast between the lighter and darker elements. I really like these type of structures that have an organic feel to them.

Tiny, quaint, humbling bluebells I came across this beautiful spring bluebell scene in a forested area near where I live in West Sussex. What the photo cannot convey was the amazing fragrance in the air from all the flowers as they were opening in the early morning air. The scene was truly a carpet of flowers!

Some things are more than we perceive I took this photo of the side of the Velodrome building in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. I liked the way they wood panels guide the eye around the edge of the building. I did some post production to bring out the detail in the sky and the wood panels.

Here in this tunnel I took this photo in the underground tunnel linking Pancras Square with Kings Cross St. Pancras underground station. I saw the woman approaching in the distance and I wanted to capture the sense of her journey through the tunnel. I did some post production to increase the contrast between the lighter and darker parts of the image.

The pearl of Sussex I took this photo of the Royal Pavilion in Brighton from the east facing aspect of the building. I have been wanting to get this reflection shot for some time, but it was a bit of challenge as the pond is quite small. I decided that the blue sky of the day would create a dramatic feel in black and white.

White clouds morphing wonderfully This was a golden hour scene in Petworth Park, Sussex, UK a few days ago. I was really captured by the shapes of the clouds as they caught the setting sun's light. If you look very closely in the top left of the image you will seen the waxing moon.

Lost souls This is a piece of graffiti that appeared in Chichester's North Pallant last year. The girls are painted at foot level and are a bit bigger than life size. I liked the texture of the wall, and the money they seem to be swapping. The original artist is JPS Art.
