IMG_7430Yesterday morning I had a wonder around the more urban areas of my local town looking at some street art.

So in the afternoon I went back into town again, this time to visit a small area of ancient woodland which has been there since neolithic times and still remains right in the middle of the town.

Brumby Woods, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, contains many ancient trees and is home to a wide variety of animals and birds including woodpeckers and foxes.

Archaeologists have also found signs that the area was used by bronze age settlers and the Romans.

Here’s some photos taken yesterday afternoon after the rain. (more…)

I don’t know why I don’t go to Twigmoor woods with the dog more often, perhaps its because the park is more popular with other dog walkers so she gets to play with others more. It’s also closer to the house than the park too. However, yesterday evening I decided to take her to the woods, and looking at the trees outside the house turning to Autumn, decided to take camera with me too.

As I headed out the door, I figured what the hell, camera without tripod is just going to lead to frustration in half an hour, so I took the tripod too so I could get away with a bit of a longer exposure.

There had been some discussion on a facebook group about the Gull Ponds at twigmoor, and I realised, that despite visiting 3 or 4 times a year, I could not recall in adult memory going down to the sandy beach there, so I decided that was where I’d go.

Dog loved it, as I expected she had loads of fun digging up the sand, running in and out the water and getting generally mucky.

Here’s some photos I grabbed in the woods, there are even a couple of the dog! (more…)

Following photographs were taken for Visit Scunthorpe and North Lincolnshire Homes – the region’s social landlord highlighting their properties, the town, and the area. Many of these photographs were taken from the roof of Crosby House, one of three 19 story social housing complexes in the town.

Going down Doncaster Road yesterday evening and the conditions were “just right” for a few nice photos of Scunthorpe’s new entertainment venue The Baths Hall.

Some shots I’ve taken as part of a project I working on for the www.VisitScunthorpe.Com web site.

The town’s motto is “The heaven’s reflect our labour” due to the orange glow which surrounds the town from the steel works.

In order to fund the site next year, we are putting together a calendar for VisitScunthorpe.Com showing night time shots of the town, here’s a flavor of what to expect.

If you’d like to pre-order a calendar then drop me a comment and I’ll get in touch, they will cost £12 each and should be available by October. Orders may be placed by emailing Editors@VisitScunthorpe.Com
