Isles of Scilly + photo on BBC TV.

The Isles of Scilly often get overlooked as a photography/holiday destination. True, they are expensive to get to and you have to book up well in advance but the scenery is stunning and they are well worth a visit.


Scilly consists of hundreds of little islands and rocks. Only 6 of the islands are inhabited – total population: only 2000 (bit more in summer!).

The best thing is to stay on the main island of St Mary’s and after a good breakfast potter down to the harbour and catch a launch out to one of the islands for the day. It’s as simple as that.

Scilly is unbeatable for beautiful seascapes.


I love the huge granite boulders.


Funny the way the grass is growing – looks a bit like the boulder has been dropped into water and it’s splashing – only it’s grass, not water.

Photo above: Nikon D80, with 16-85mm at 85mm. ISO 200, 1/1000 second at  f8.


I think this is a lighthouse of sorts. Evening shot. I like the cloud looking similar to the rocks.


Some of the shapes of the rocks are amazing. Nikon D80 with 16-85mm at 48mm. ISO 200, 1/250 sec f8. Exposure + 1 stop although looking at it you might have thought it was – 1 stop.

And finally:

This shot was used 3 times on BBC Wales last Friday to illustrate the weather. It was taken near Llangors in the Brecon Beacons on my tiny but excellent Sony RX100.
