Bokeh journey I captured this shot on my OnePlus 5 by shooting the Christmas lights on an outdoor tree in manual mode. By setting the focus to the smallest setting, the bokeh effect came through.

A beam travelled from that tiny spark I captured this shot of New Brighton Lighthouse as the sun was setting over Liverpool Bay. I used a tripod for a long exposure of the scene, but thankfully the clouds were moving slow enough to not blur. The detail of the light on the lighthouse in the water came out quite well.

Now you're up, later you're down I took this photo at Farnborough Airshow 2016. The Airbus A-400M Atlas is such an impressive aircraft to behold, especially with the grey lines on the wings and the spiral prop engines. I did some post production work to bring out the clouds because the scene was very bright.

Softly curve away This is the wooden side of the Aquatics Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. My eye caught the curves of the building and the way the overcast sun was glinting on the woodwork. I shot this in RAW on my OnePlus 5, and I was impressed with how well the post-production recovery worked.

Season of mists This was a scene I captured on a misty and somewhat rainy day overlooking Rydal Water in the Lake District, UK. I made use of my 2-stop gradient filter to balance out the sky as it was very bright and overcast. I wanted to capture the mists as the worked their way across the hill, as well as the reflection of the grass and trees in the lake.

A Half Remembered Dream This was a shot I took across Grasmere Lake on an overcast morning in September. The water was almost mirror-like which gave me a good reflection of the scene to work with.

Innominate Tarn This is a view from the top of Haystacks in the Lake District, Cumbria UK. On the centre left of the scene is a body of water called Innominate Tarn, which is the final resting place of the famous British fellwalker Alfred Wainwright. I was curious as to why he had chosen this setting for his ashes until I saw the scene which is dominated by the fell Great Gable to the top right.

Humble dales and mountains bold This was the view from an ascent up Haystacks in the Lake District, Cumbria UK. I created an HDR image from a single exposure, in order to bring out the overcast sky. This is the northern face of Haystacks, facing the top of the Honister Pass.

The legendary creature, startling white This was piece of graffiti I came across in Ulverston, Cumbria UK. I was really struck by the art, particularly because it reminded me of the origami in the film Blade Runner. I did some post production work to selectively colour the artwork and bring out the detail in the bricks.

Guardian angel of the night I captured this shot of New Brighton Lighthouse as the sun was setting over Liverpool Bay. I used a tripod for a long exposure of the scene, but thankfully the clouds were moving slow enough to not blur. I was happy that the reflection included the yellow light towards the top of the structure.

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.
