Here’s some great photos from around Scunthorpe by Kev, a good mate of mine, hope you enjoy then and please, follow his “NorthLincs” blog.


Central Park fountain, looking West, taken with a 50 second exposure time. I like the effect it gives the falling water and how the water in the pool has a glass affect.

Central Park fountain, looking East, again with a 50 exposure. The water in the pool is quite choppy as the fountain cascades into it but with a long exposure it gives this calm glass affect.

Looking along Kingsway towards the Queensway Roundabout again but taken a little closer to the sign.

Big thanks to Colin who invited me along to the first meeting of the Scunny Cruise Club thisĀ evening.

I’ll be putting an article together about the club on Visit Scunthorpe in forthcoming days once I’ve got more information about the events they are planning for next year.

In the mean time, here’s the photos I took, it was great meeting you all, and I hope to see you all again at future events.

Please feel free to download / copy / paste any of the pictures for what ever purpose you like free of charge. All I ask is you share links to this blog and / or http://www.VisitScunthorpe.Com so that people are aware of what I am doing.

If any one would like a print out of any of the photographs then pls download them and get on with it, alternatively I can do A3 prints for a tenner.


I’ve been meeting up with the local candidates in the Humberside PCC elections for Humberside, and this week I had the opportunity to meet with John Prescott. Very impressed with the size and magnitude of his campaign, and also the fact that I got to spend about 1.5 hours with him chatting, photographing and walking the streets of messingham.

There is a full account of our meeting on the Scunthorpe Community news forum Visit Scunthorpe, below are the rest of the photos, as per usual, free for non-commercial use providing they are fully attributed to the blog, any other uses, leave me a comment.
