Sunday Morning White Out

13 Dec 2017, Posted by Elliot Hook in landscapes, trips

It’s been a good few years since we’ve had any decent snow here in Bedfordshire, especially snowfall coinciding with me being able to get out and shoot in it.  So last weekend, when a large portion of the UK had a good covering, I took…

Bluebells 2015: Redux

19 Apr 2016, Posted by Elliot Hook in landscapes

As controversial a subject that bluebell photography can be amongst the UK landscape photography community (well, not bluebells per se, but shooting seasonally obvious subject matter with little imagination or thought for originality), they’re still a highlight of my photography calendar as they are indicative…

2015: A review of my photographic year

There has been one view that I’ve struggled to take a decent image of for around 5 or 6 years, but I think I’ve recently made some progress. It’s a view from the Bwlch y Groes pass, the mountain road that links Lake Vyrnwy with Dinas…

2014: A review of my photographic year

27 Dec 2014, Posted by Elliot Hook in landscapes, wildlife

2014 has been a relatively quiet year, photographically, compared to previous years.  There have been times when whole months went by without me picking up my camera and whilst I have taken plenty of images throughout the year, I’ve published far fewer on to Flickr…
