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…)

I was invited by the local Unseen Paranormal Investigations team to go on a trip with them, at night, looking for paranormal activty near where I live in Scunthorpe.

Not only was this a great opportunity to do (yet more) night time photography, it also offered an insight in to the thoughts and beliefs of Paranormal Investigators.

Overall a worth while trip and an opportunity to meet some very nice people. To find out more you can follow them on facebook :


Located between Scunthorpe and Kirton in Lindsey, Twigmoor woods is packed full of Rhododendrons which in early June look their best.

Julie, Saffie and my self took the Nifty Fifty out for a few photographs one busy Saturday afternoon
