Red Bus

Old rusty, abandoned Lancashire Red Bus, sadly this one had been in a crash many years ago but hopefully its parts will be used to keep other historic buses keep going. There is a strange obsession as a photographer to photograph anything Rusty..

Part of a series of sculptures at Lee Quarry in Bacup, part of the Rossendales valleys of Stone series. This sculpture is called Ferro-terrasaurus and was inspired by industrial Machinery created by Robin Dobson. Photographed on a Moody day the rust and cloud really add to the presence on the hillside.

Churchyard Gates

I visited this local North Manchester Church and was struck by the contrasts of the place. I photographed the Church from the graveyard gates which were a little overgrown but the gates almost framed this pretty church view. I have limited the colours in this picture to sepia tones to keep the scene simple. I hope to visit again soon as there is so much to photograph.

After weeks of rain the sun made a welcome entrance and for a few minutes it uplifted my soul, maybe spring was not so far away after all…Photograph taken of a church reflected in the flooded fields of the Fylde in Lancashire.
