And the Sun Still Rises: 365-10

And the Sun Still Rises

And the Sun Still Rises

Just when you think that even though the days are technically getting longer, the daylight is still doing its shy best to hide behind grey clouds, fog and rain, this morning’s crisp but vibrant sunrise restored my faith in the Yorkshire weather. Not that I think this photo really does it justice . I do love the way the sun can be seen glowing like fire through the trees, as it peeks its head above my garage roof.

My Talented Friends – Malcolm Stoney


Malc Stoney

Malc is an old friend who took up photography about 5 years ago. His photos explore colour and perspective, and I love his unusual take on landscape and architecture. He’s just started a foundation degree in photography which he’s pretty excited about, so much so that he’s blogging about it in his wry style. Click on any of the photos in this post to see them full size. You can see more of Malc’s work on his flickr.

Last month, this shot won top ten in the Craven Herald and Craven Museum Our Craven exhibition in Skipton. It’s safe to say he’s pretty chuffed that it will now be made into a postcard which you’ll be able to send to all your friends when you visit the Gateway to the Dales.

"Light Trails", Skipton High Street

The following shots are Malc’s entries in the Telegraph and Argus Yorkshire Landscapes competition. I love the framing and composition on these.

"Through", Pen Y Ghent

"Barbed Wire Sunset", Roman Road, Skipton

Malc  is also practicing his portraiture – I think this is a poignant one of a friend’s daughter, which you can vote for until 8th October by clicking on the picture.

"Girl on Beach", Morcambe

And just to finish, here is one of my favourites of his, which I have hanging on my wall:

"Strung Out"
