Berry Brow Railway Station.

Berry Brow railway station is a 1 platform train halt serving the commuter villages of Berry Brow, Armitage Bridge and Newsome to the south of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. The station was opened in October 1989 23 years after the previous station had closed which stood approx. 320 metres further north. The current platform sits upon what at 1 time would have been the southbound line before the tracks were reduced to single line status.

These album of pictures was taken on the 21st May 2016 with a Nikon d3300 SLR camera.

A Winter Walk.

This is a selection of pictures taken during a walk from Sowerby Bridge to Copley, West Yorkshire when the area had a light dusting of snow. I had just purchased a Nikon d3300 SLR and wanted to try it out so this walk was the perfect opportunity. I followed a track that leads from the Mearclough, Milner Royd area of Sowerby Bridge and followed this through the Copley Valley that was about to undertake a development on industrial units and housing so will be much changed the next time I try to picture the area during the winter.

These pictures were taken on the 17th January 2016.

Allan Park, Sowerby Bridge.

Allan Park is a small public park built in to woodland and the hillside of Norland giving outstanding views of Sowerby Bridge and the nearby area. The park was opened in 1922 in the former grounds of Allan House which is now a health centre and offers limited facilities with a small children's playground and a bowing green being about the main of them. The Rishworth Branch line Scar Head Tunnel runs directly underneath the park and some of the many woodland paths that run through it lead to the top of the eastern tunnel portal. The park is easily accessed as its entrance sits opposite the Jubilee refreshment rooms and former coal hoppers at Sowerby Bridge Railway Station.

These pictures were taken in May 2016 using a Nikon d3300 DSLR Camera.

Portinatx, Ibiza. An Album of Pictures.

Portinatx is a small resort on the northern coast of Ibiza popular with families. I visited in July 2014 and whilst the scenery is stunning, the beaches clean and not over crowded, there is not much in the way of things to do. The transfer from the airport took approx. 45mins and once you arrive in Portinatx it is hard to visit the rest of the island of Ibiza due to the remoteness of the town. There are infrequent bus services, a tourist Train(bus), a few boat trips away from the resort and a couple of car rentals. The town has a few large hotel complexes and a number of restaurants and 3 beaches.
Portinatx is surrounded by woodland, cliffs and water which makes the views from all the hotels stunning, and a walk up to the Punta Moscarter Lighthouse is worth a visit as is the pirate tower overlooking the entrance to the cove. The area is also home to the Ibiza Wall Lizard.

These pictures were taken in July 2014 using a Polaroid iS2132 Digital Camera.

Honley Railway Station, Kirklees, West Yorkshire.

A favourite subject of mine for picturing has always been railway photography and whilst recently in the Holme Valley, Nr Huddersfield I stopped to picture some of the stations that can be found on the Penistone line running from Huddersfield to Sheffield.

This set was taken at Honley Railway Station which is now a single platform station opened in 1850. Until 1989 the station was served by 2 platforms but the southbound line was removed and all that remains now are some derelict coal hoppers and a overgrown inaccessible platform.

These pictures were taken using a Nikon d3300 digital camera on the 21st May 2016. I then used a orange filter in the editing to remove all colours and highlight only orange and red shades. Click the pictures to view full size on Flickr.

Fiery Sky over Brechin, Scotland.

Whilst recently passing through Scotland on my way to Aberdeen I found myself passing time on the outskirts of  Brechin. I loved the orange glow on the clouds as the sun was setting and quickly got the camera out to picture it.

The pictures were taken with my Nikon d3300 SLR Camera on the 22nd August 2016 and these are the results. Please click to the picture to view full size on Flickr,
