The dam at Baitings Reservoir

I used to drive past this reservoir everyday on the commute to and from work. Usually the sluices are dry and there’s a bare ring of stones above the waterline, indicating that the reservoir still had capacity. Not today though: excess water flowed powerfully down the face of the dam, under a glowering sky. So much for summer!

Looking out from Pendle Hill

Getting closer to the sky; the view from astride the saddle of Pendle hill. Looking towards the village of Sabden: shot on the first warm weekend of spring, with clouds scudding eastwards across the pennines. Although you can barely see them here, paragliders were riding thermals rising from the Ribble valley and up the slopes. The historic Forest of Pendle is perhaps best known for giving its name to a famous witch trial in 1612.

Dogspace: celebrating the Chinese New Year

pano_dogspace_1500px

This eyecatching pack of giant inflatable dogs invaded the genteel elegance of Preston’s Miller Arcade recently, to celebrate the Chinese ‘Year of the Dog’. It was commissioned from north west-based installation artists Spacecadets. This was my submission to the spring 2006 world wide panorama event, based on the theme of ‘borders’. You can read more about this exhibition, and see the full submission here.
