    Title or Location: Norwich
    There are a set of steps in front of County Hall in Norwich where people gather to eat their lunch, mainly street food bought from the colourful market just below. I have taken many street photographs there. The pigeons and gulls gather there to pick up food scraps. I wanted to get a picture of this pigeon waiting for a meal opportunity, but with the view of Norwich behind to give a sense of the location. The scene shows the iconic market and Norwich Castle in the background. A focal length of f

The wind pump dates from the 19th Century and was used to drain the land at Minsmere Levels near Leiston, Suffolk. It was relocated to the museum and restored in 1977.

    Title or Location: Elmswell, Suffolk (What3Words ///megawatt.starts.different)
    On 10 September 2023, I ventured out early before sunrise to try & capture the recently discovered comet Nishimura (C/2023 P1). Unfortunately, the glow of the pre-dawn sun washed out the possibility of seeing the comet, which was due to be just above the horizon. In this shot, taken at 5:15am, the crescent Moon is framed at the top of the shot with Venus below. The Suffolk countryside makes the silhouetted horizon. The two red lights on the horizon come from the top of the Mendlesham transmitte

    Title or Location: Dunwich Heath Beach
    I took a walk from Sizewell Beach to Dunwich Beach, somehow avoiding a soaking from the storm clouds all around, managing by luck to just stay in a small pocket of dry for the whole of the 5 mile walk.As I approached Dunwich Heath this huge menacing cloud formation was straight ahead, looming over my oasis of sanctuary, the Dunwich Heath National Trust Tearoom, which can be found within the old coastguard cottages, the row of white buildings on the clifftop. I reached for my camera and snap,

    Title or Location: Edmonds, WA
    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I

    I took this image on Nov. 2, 2021 at 7 am on Nov. 2, 2001 at 7 am. As I was driving around the Cove I came upon this Buck as I came up over a rise. I had a feeling that he was about to cross the road. My hunch was right. He crossed one fence and eventually crossed the other one. I was ready for his movement. I took a series over shots. It was very exciting.Canon EF 100-400 f4.5 - 5.6L ISO 4,000 f8 1/200s

    Canon EOS 800DEF 75-300 f/4-5.675mm1/640F4.5ISO 200I was out practicing my technique. Had spent a little while chasing squirrels around the park. This took me to an area of the park I had not been in. The way these two tulips were complete opposites and yet seem to lean on each other drew my attention to them.
