O.K. so after a little detour into Spain, I've returned to the Morocco series I had intended to post.

This shot is from the dusty little village we visited just outside Asila in Northern Morocco and must be the local taxi rank. This shot was taken from the car window on our way out of the village, and again, what attracted me the the subject, is the texture and colours of the building and the colorful character sitting on the chair.

Up early this morning and got out to shoot the sunrise, there was a wonderful mist hanging over the landscape this morning, it was so beautiful , it makes you realise you are lucky to be alive.

Thanks for all the comments on the Poppy shot, much appreciated feedback. This is another photo over the Guildford fields, and not as naturally beautiful as the others, i'm happy with the colours.

I have one more shot to post from the series, and then we're away for a few days in Austria, a big party, so I'm hoping to get some good portraits :-)

Hiya, i'm back. Once again , apologies for the sporadic posting, we are in the last throes of finishing the new Narnia movie, Prince Caspian. Needless to say, everyone is working their socks off getting the project finished, and I don't have much energy for anything else right now.

This is another one of my lunchtime shots. London is going through a massive phase of redevelopment and there is construction on every block. I seem to find the machinery and other technologies make good subject matter and have been documenting a few projects.

Oh, lastly, Happy Easter everyone! :-D

Not strictly abstract, because of the helicopter, but i'm lumping it in with the series anyway. This shot, again from New Zealand, was at the end of a hard days work on set, the helicopter is one used for the film production, hence the large gyro camera on the nose.

Thanks for the latest comments and well wishes, I'm feeling much better now thanks, and as I mentioned yesterday, I got out to our local beach and managed to get a few nice shots, that i'm quite excited about. I'll start posting those tomorrow.

Just a short post tonight, as i've come down with a bug and have been off work sick today, hopefully be back o form tomorrow :-)

I discovered this shot whilst looking through my archives of Morocco at the weekend, it's from a few years ago now and I don't why i'd previously overlooked it. It was taken driving through one of the small, hilly villages on the outskirts of Tangier, this lady is wearing the traditional peasant clothes, I like the bold colours and think they work really well together.

This shot is a candid snaphot on the streets of Prague, another from our visit just before Christmas.

I don't have masses to say about it, apart from the fact I found these 2 interesting enough to want to take a photo of, and although the shot is not as sharp as usual , due to the low light from overcast weather and shooting handheld at 200mm (300mm 35mm equiv) , I'm reasonably happy with it.

Back to Prague , this time in one of the beautiful parks they have in the city. This is a pretty straight shot, and compositionally i'm pretty happy with it. Processing wise , It's just been desaturated a little and muted down, but not much else.

This ice lake is a stich of a couple of seperate shot which explains the distortion in at the sides of the image and the apparently super wide angle lense. Again, it's from my time spent in New Zealand, i like the tones in the sky and the way these are reflected in the ice.

This is one of a series of shots at this location, Poolburn reservoir that pushed me to get more serious about my photograpy. It's a wider version of this shot.I didn't process the image except for the raw converson, as i wanted to keep the muted, desaturated tones and color of this very special morning.

A colleague and i had arrived on set to find a beautiful early morning frost, we decided to take some shots before work started. The doorway is a fishermans toilet at the lake side, i love the way it's just there in the middle of nowhere.

I've included a GoogleMaps location for anyone who want to know the location of this spot.

Another shot of the Otago region in New Zealand's South Island. I was lucky enough to be asked along for a ride in one of the productions helicopters,hence the shot is ever so slightly soft. Up in the helicopter we were afforded fantastic views of the region

This region is where some parts of 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogys were shotsand you can see why from the dramatic landscape,
