A Proud Partner of!

I'm very pleased to announce that I am now a partner on the very popular website, Not on the High Street. For those of you that haven't heard of this online store before, it's full of awesome and unique products made by some of the most creative small businesses in the UK. 

At the time of writing this blog post, I have available my 20 x 16 Inch Mounted Prints and 24 x 16 Inch Limited Edition Signed Prints through their website, with an option to have them framed at an extra £20.00. This is an option currently exclusive only on NOTHS, something I will have available on my own website store very soon (in the next week or so.)

Galactic Rainbow at Castle Haven - A 360 Degree View of the Milky Way

360 Degree View Of Castle Haven - Print available here

I spent over an hour taking the above photograph, which consists of over 50 individual photos, resulting in a 360 degree view of Castle Haven. Very little post-processing was needed on the milky way in these photos due to how clear it was that night, combined with the little light pollution in the West towns here. The negative-effects of light pollution is evident in the left of the image (facing East) which is home to the populated towns of Ventnor/Shanklin/Sandown. As the light pollution starts to fade out a large faint smudge can be seen, this is in fact the Andromeda galaxy!

Abandoned Playground On The Isle of Wight - Blackgang Chine

Photograph available as a Print  here

Adventureland was once a popular attraction at Blackgang Chine Amusement Park, known as the oldest theme park in the UK that opened in 1843 and is still open today. This particular part of the park was left abandoned in 1994, due to a landslide that brought the cliff edge only feet away from the roundabout. Despite the roundabout being at least 55 years old and incredibly rusty, it still spins like new! I've been meaning to shoot here since last year as it's in such a dark area of the island and an incredible location, definitely one to head back to in the very near future!
