    Title or Location: Pin Mill
    Planning a visit to the national trust location Pin Mill in Suffolk, I researched my weather and tide apps and it was looking good for conditions. Making the journey from Chelmsford at around 5am I arrived and got all my gear and made my way to the location in the dark but by torch light. I found the composition I wanted and waited for the light to arrive and as the tide rised i managed to get this beautiful image, I used a ND8 and a polariser on a tripod. Camera used was a SONY A7IV with a SONY

    I've been dieing to get out and photograph some daffodils for the last week and on Friday 10th on my way to my local Asda I noticed them in the roundabout so when my wife went shopping on the Saturday I got her to drop me off at the roundabout so I could photo some. For me daffodils mark the start of spring the yellow of them is sublime and just some about them makes me smile

I did try the capture the sun directly in the middle of the big wheel but couldn't quite get the angle but was very pleased with the pictures I did get.

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
