In the British Isles there is always something to photograph not far from your doorstep, be it a famous garden such as Bodnant, your local town or city, or one of the country's many public attractions.  I've a separate gallery for landscape photography, but this page includes a small selection of locations that hopefully will inspire you to grab a camera and explore your surroundings.

Bodnant Garden

I've been visiting Bodnant Garden since I was a child, photographing the gardens' iconic features such as the laburnum arch and Pin Mill.  In recent years I've been experimenting with different views, some of which can be found in this gallery.

Dudley Zoo

Dudley Zoo has twelve Tecton buildings, designed by the Lubetkin group they are listed structures, but as they're no longer suitable as animal enclosures, are quickly falling into disrepair.

Chester in the Snow

My home city of Chester, famous for its Roman Walls, zoo and racecourse, but not so much for snow, in fact snow hardly ever 'sticks' around for more than a few hours, so after an unusually heavy fall, early one morning I headed out with my camera...

Exbury Gardens

Exbury is an informal woodland garden in the New Forest that has a large collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias.  The garden is at its best in May, but the 'perfect' time to visit can often be down to luck and the particular season.
