Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

On tuesday (12/7) I took a short trip over to Scarborough, North Yorkshire for a nights stay. Despite the rain, still managed to get out and about with the camera, here are a few shots from my iPhone whilst I catch up on my photo editing backlog.

Then as I was heading home, the sun was out.

Overall it was a good little break, now I have got my interest in photography back my motivation seems to be returning too.

New instagram

To go alongside the website refresh, I have created a seperate instagram account just for my Landscape photography. I will still post on my normal account too but i am keen to boost a social media presence so I have decided to create a landscapes page in the hope i can boost my sales and exposure of my work.


The Trick with instagram is to find the right hashtags for your photos, but you are limited to no more than 30 on any one photo in the description bar. 

I found this article online that I found useful. https://fstoppers.com/originals/three-easy-ways-drive-new-followers-your-instagram-free-instagram-tips-part-1-159155

Dont forget to check out my instagram and leave comments etc. 

Whitby

Back on the August Bank Holiday I went to Whitby, North Yorkshire with 2 friends for the day. It was a great day out and quite warm too, I took my camera with me to get some photos as the town is so photogenic and as I enjoyed my previous shorter evening visit there with the camera last year, I knew that I would get some good images.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape.

This weeks Photo challenge is probably my favourite as I focus a lot of my photography on landscapes. I do have a wide range of photos on this genre to share so have decided to do this in 2 parts with another post later on in the week.

These two are my favourites, i will be posting another post on this weeks subject later on this week.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons(Spring)

I have decided i wanted to do another post on this weeks theme seasons.

Reason i have chosen to do a second post rather than include more than one photo in my first one is this photo is focused on the next season of the year up: Spring.

Clarence Dock Golden Hour

This photo I took at sunset at Leeds Dock, a area just on the outside of Leeds City Centre, a great spot for photography.

Below are some of the posts i have enjoyed from this week’s challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons(Winter)

This weeks photo challenge is seasons:
At the moment in the UK we are in winter but we have had hardly any snow here in England, just a lot of rain and cold weather. This photo is from a the other year but in march when the snow was very heavy, a sledge dumped into a bin at a local park.

I hope you have enjoyed my interpretation of this weeks photo challenge.
