  8. 8. Images from the exhibition are still available online at
  9. 9. Oxford Floods, January 2014 Like many parts of southern England, Oxford has seen its share of flooding. The first spell of flooding in January coincided with some very bright warm days which encouraged me to explore the watery landscapes. By mid-February, it would be fair to say that any novelty value has very definitely worn off.
  10. 10. There are more images from this collection at
  11. 11. Aviemore Sled Dog Rally, January 2014 Every January the UK sled dog community come together at Glenmore in the Cairngorms for a major rally.

  13. 13. Up Helly Aa, Shetland, January 2014 The Viking heritage is important to the Shetland Islands. One of the key outlets for their inner Viking is the Up Helly Aa fire festival. On the last Tuesday in January, the streets of Lerwick are filled with hoards of bearded torch-bearing Vikings intent on burning a replica long boat.

  15. 15. Shetland Sunrise, February 2014 One of the real bonuses of spending time on a small island is the opportunity to see dramatic sunrises and sunsets. In early February sunrise is around 08:00, so it’s not too much of a challenge to get up to Sumburgh Head for the pre-sunrise light show.

  17. 17. Wave Power, Shetland, February 2014 Shetland really does have potential to exploit both wind and wave power. Spending time around the coastline really does bring home how much energy is caught up in even quite modest waves. I’ve been trying to capture images that give a sense of this power.

  20. 20. Next time: Shetland Islands I’ll be back on Shetland to watch some more waves, and to see the sea birds returning to the cliffs and beaches around the islands.
  21. 21. Next time: Lofoten Islands I’ll be revisiting the Lofoten Islands to photograph the mountains when there isn’t a covering of snow on the peaks and the roads.
