Images taken of Astronomical Objects as a natural extension to my Landscape and Fine Art work.
Please note that images in the slide shows on web sites may not be correct as only some colour information is used, so speeding up the slide show.
Similarly all of the images in this gallery are uploaded, smaller in size and with a reduced color range so they can be viewed on a variety of computers and devices.
Images taken on the D800E, link to ideas and thought about moving from 5 by 4 transparency to digital, and also to try to get the same style, perspectives and a concentration on Texture in images and suitability for scientific and technical projects that were particularly useful with large format or other DSLRs.
My favourite images, usually taken on film and then converted to monochrome. I usually realise I want a black and white image at the point of taking it. Earl digital printing was so inferior for black and white, that it was only recently that I could realise good quality monochrome prints without resorting to a darkroom.
Water is a fascinating subject to me particularly as it is so challenging. Is it still or in spate? Is it ice, water, mist, boiling, aerated and bubbly or transparent and mirror like. It requires a physicality to take images of fifty foot seas perched on the cliffs above them, and yet a subtlety and patience to capture water at its most mercurial or diamond like. Photographing water takes us to the limits of our technique and our often our equipment beyonds its limits.
