I would just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy Christmas and New Year.

Unfortunately my 2017 Calendar has now sold out but many thanks to all of you have purchased these this year and I will be producing a 2018 Calendar which will be available next August.

Due to other work commitments my opening hours at the shop in Penrith will vary and I cannot guarantee that I will be there on specific days, if the sign says 'OPEN' then I will of course be in the shop.

I am of course easily reached via email or my mobile phone.

All the best for 2017.

A few changes to the website: A new logo (It was time for a change!), the Lake District galleries have changed from by the year to sections: West Lakes, North West Lakes, West Lakes, Central Lakes, Eastern Lakes and Southern Lakes. This is due to myself venturing into new areas of the Lake District as well as revisiting some old favourites.

Panoramic photographs are now available in four different sizes: small, medium, large or extra large with an option for the small version to be either mounted or mounted & framed.

Regular sized photographs are now available in two new sizes of canvas prints: either 12 x 8 inches or 15 x 10 inches.

Some recent photographs have been added to the 'Keldas' Gallery which can be found here in the East Lakes Gallery section.

Regular sized Canvas prints are now available to purchase in three new sizes: 12 x 8, 15 x 10 or 24 x 16 inches. Also, regular sized prints are now available as either 24 x 16, 30 x 20 or a whopping 36 x 24 inches!

Panoramic photographs will also soon be available in different sizes with the biggest print size being 24 inches in depth with an average of 5.5 ft in length and of course there will be smaller versions available.

I will soon be altering this site into different sections: gone will be 2013, 2014 galleries etc. and these will be replaced by splitting the Lake District into sections such as North & Northwest Lakes etc. As I am starting to venture further into Cumbria this will be a logical way of organising the photographs for easier access.
