Liverpool waterfront by night

A night time view of Liverpool: European City of Culture 2008. Standing with Albert Dock behind, and looking towards Pier Head and the Three Graces (The Royal Liver, Cunard and Port of Liverpool buildings).

Liverpool One at night

Inside the main concourse at Liverpool One, the newest and biggest retail development in Liverpool. I loved the lighting, walkways and the raindrops on the metalwork in this scene.

Night falls at Sol den Serra, Ibiza

Some friends recently held their wedding at this wonderful venue in Ibiza. It lies overlooking a small secluded bay on the eastern coast of Ibiza, the famed ‘white isle’ in the Mediterranean. The weather was perfect, and as dusk fell the venue’s illuminations cast a surreal glow on the partygoers. We ate great food and toasted the couple and the speakers under the stars (the barbeque is clearly visible and was still warm when this picture was taken!).

I shot this as Andy, one of the guests, was at the climax of his party piece – a breathtaking performance with fire sticks. As he had to substitute a barbeque gel for the more usual paraffin he later revealed an impressive collection of low-intensity burns on his arms from the spattering fuel. Not a pastime for the fairhearted!

I loved the intensity of the lights and fire on the beach, and knew it would make a great panorama for this event. Thanks to Jack and Vix for the wedding invite: it was truly a night to remember, and I’m happy to have captured a flavour of the occasion.

Dusk in downtown Todmorden

Looking towards the portico of the magnificent Victoria Town Hall in Todmorden, from the grounds of St Mary’s Church. At 10secs per shot, the long exposure captures a lot more variation in colour and detail than I could see at the time.
