Met up with Rebecca and Chris in the Devil’s Punchbowl, Hindhead. They love to go for walks here and it was the perfect location for an engagement session.

The first photo was made at the top of Gibbet Hill, which has stunning views across the countryside.

London Photo Walk

I was recently invited in to London by fellow photographer and good friend Jackie Wood. The initial plan was to join an evening photo walk to capture images of London lit up after dark. It seemed like a good idea, but since I don’t get in to London often I suggested we make a day of it.

The photos here were taken during the day as we found our bearings. It may seem odd but I have never seen Tower Bridge raised for a ship to pass, so we headed over. Jackie was prepared with a timetable for the expected openings for the day and we managed to catch not just one but two passages of a tall ship.

It was also a great location to capture the old and new across the river, the Tower of London itself, plus the “Walkie-Talkie” building and the “Gherkin”.

The number of cranes shows how much building work is still going on in London.

After that we headed over to the Tower to see the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, a sea of ceramic poppies. Planted in the moat around the Tower, each poppy represents a British soldier who lost his life in World War One.

The poppies are available to buy, with proceeds going to services charities.
