Castlerigg Core - The Galactic Core of our Milky Way Galaxy over Castlerigg Stone Circle. In the heart of the gas clouds lies a supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A* that lies 26,000 light years away from the 3-5 thousand year old stone circle near Keswick
Andromeda, Blea Tarn & the Langdale Pikes - The photograph that started it all for me. The first ever glimpse of our sister galaxy Andromeda that lies 2.537 million light years away and contains a trillion stars. Here you can see it over the stunning Langdale Pikes and beautiful Blea Tarn. An amazing night to be out walking the Lakes. Langdale at night, it doesn’t get much better
Ben, Floyd & the Core - My award winning shot. Here you can see Floyd and myself silhouetted against the galactic core of the Milky Way Galaxy. In this shot you can see Mars, Saturn, the summer triangle of Altair, Deneb & Vega and of course the gas clouds at the centre of our galaxy where 26,000 light years away lies a supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A*
Blea Lights - A night spent playing and experimenting with photography in the Lake District. Here I left my camera sitting on a tripod in the tarn taking photos as I ran back to the van and drove and down the road to create the light trails.
Borrowdale Glow - Derwent Water one misty night in the Lake District. The old jetty looking across Borrowdale to Catbell’s and St Herbert’s Island. The lights from Keswick giving colour and light to the mists. A stunning night in Borrowdale

Orion & Sirius over Buttermere - The Dog star, Sirius and Orion high above beautiful Buttermere and the beautiful mountains of Fleetwith Pike & Haystacks
Orion over Castlerigg - The constellation of Orion above the 3-5 thousand year old stone circle at Castlerigg near Keswick. Some stunning January snow and a sky full of stars. An amazing night to be out in the Lake District
Sycamore Gap Starswirl - My best selling image and one made of from 140 separate exposures stacked together to show the rotation of Earth over 45 minutes. In the sky Cassiopeia, the Double Cluster and Polaris make up the startrails
4 Dogs & a Bench - Walking Loughrigg with the then pack one beautiful winters day. Looking across Rydal Water and White Moss Woods to Grasmere, Helm Crag and beyond. Another beautiful Lake District day
