Highlights

Sometimes you don't get a fantastic composition but mother nature makes up for it with some amazing colours. This was the case when I was down in NZ capturing Cathedral Cove. As I was walking the path to the beach the first dawn lights were starting to appear. My main aim was to get the 'bucket list' Cove shot which I did but I had to quickly capture some of this amazing sky behind me. Don't forget to look around while you're out there! .

'Straight to the Point'
With the hope of some good colour, favourable tides and some gentle swell rolling in it was straight to Peveril Point to capture this scene.... Not a bad way to start a Monday

End of summer vibes 
We've had a good week of calm weather, sunshine and warmth so managed a couple of flights with the drone. Looks like its all change from the weekend. Ready for a winter of storms hopefully, last year was disappointing. Who's in? .

End of season Milkyway shoot. Each year I say I should shoot this more often and once again another year passes by 😔 Maybe next year. So amazing to sit under the stars and witness this

Had some last minute plans for last nights full moon but sadly the good old English weather put pay to that! Maybe next time, so for now, this shot capturing the moon rising above Old Harry Rocks⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today marks the start of Swanage Lifeboat week 2019 and with the British summer weather being its usual cheery self it's a timely reminder to take care if you're by the coast so these guys and girls don't have to go out in conditions like this.
If you're in or around Swanage then be sure to check out the various events going on. It starts today with a charity golf day which is where I'm heading now and ends next week with free entry to live bands, bbq and beer tents where I'll also probably end up catching up with the boys and girls.

Finally!! After a few failed attempts and not a lot of action I got a few lightning shots, this being one of them. Recent storms have failed to materialise or been just too far away for me. I wanted to shoot somewhere new and ended up in Calshot, looking over the Solent and after the rain had cleared managed this and a few other shots. Home at 3am before 7am alarm call for work! 
Thanks to @sebster_06 for keeping me company - cool start to the school holidays for him! .

Leaving New Plymouth in the cover of darkness and in rain on the NZ trip I thought I'd missed the best opportunity for capturing Mount Taranaki, but then as the clouds cleared and dawn started to break I caught a glimpse of it in the wing mirror so quickly set about finding a composition. These are my favourite sort of shots, opportunist ones that you make the most of when they crop up unexpectedly.

'Dawn Patrol Reflection'  No better time to take things in and reflect on all that is going on around us than during a peaceful sunrise or sunset. .

FB reminded me today that two years ago today I was out witnessing this! Epic night and one of the last good storms we had here! Really hope we get some decent action this year or a trip over the Channel will be in order.... Is the weather effected by brexit too? Storms not allowed to cross the channel?

I put a fair bit of planning into the NZ trip lining up locations with tides and moon phases amongst other things but I was in the hands of mother nature for some of the colour during sunset and sunrises..... thankfully she was more than obliging on most occasions .

Hands up if you would rather be sat on a beach like this, all to yourself with no one else around!!
Another of those hidden beaches down in NZ with nothing but drift wood on the golden sand
