Biography

I’m an amateur photographer who lives in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire: I enjoy photographing the countryside near where I live. Although I’ve had a camera for 50 years or so it’s only in the last few years that I’ve taken photography a little more seriously but only a little, I still enjoy the process. Thanks.

YouTube channels I subscribe to that help me with my photography: Thomas Heaton, Simon Baxter, Serge Ramelli, Phillip McCordall who I can’t recommend highly enough, Paul G. Johnson, Mujahid, First Man Photography and of course, Mike Browne. Others that I watch on an occasional basis: Gavin Hoey and Kelvin Designs.

All work is mine, unless otherwise stated, and subject to copyright.

          Thanks Olga and it certainly was. I notice I've made this a bit misleading date wise on the photo but I didn't get around to processing this image and a few others until 2016.

          Beautiful image Butch. It's a shame to think about what beauty was lost to the erosion, but that same erosion made this image possible.

          Was there a walkway to these things, or did they have to use a boat?

            There were built on the shore in 1980. Since then the erosion that has taken place has moved the shoreline about 180 feet behind them. This was a single house with the four dooms connected. The floors and connecting walkways have fallen away.

              Now the area where they were built was remote and was only accessible by boat. The owners would take a boat to Marco Island for food and such.
