‘Bluebells in Raindale’
‘Bluebells in Raindale’

An early digital image I made on a trip to Robin Hood’s Bay with David Tolcher and Guy Aubertin. Raindale is an amazing collection of trees about 20 minutes up the coastal path from the bay. It has also become tick city. On the return trip a couple of years later I whitnessed my friend remove two on site. I found more than one that evening. This is becoming an increasing problem in many of the places I like to photograph with no obvious answer. However it starts with awareness and vigilance.

Technical details: Sony a7r and my fun cannon 35mm tilt shift. Not used often enough but always produces a wonderful analogue feel when it is.
