“Colour Pockets”

A small storm cloud passed by as the sun started to set creating the orange patch of cloud trails on the left. It was interesting watching it, as it seemed to stay in one spot, but had a trail of turbulent vapors moving the opposite direction the other clouds were moving, which kind of gave the illusion that it was moving with them. (upon further inspection I found it’s mostly stationary)

“Peach Patches”

The sunset was looking promising while I was setting up my camera. The colours were quite nice, but the clouds didn’t cooperate, mostly staying out of frame, aside from a few patches.

You Me At Six - Slam Dunk Festival North 2015

Loads of You Me At Six shots up on my photography page here!

Don’t forget to like my page to see more shots from the festival of other bands throughout the week! :)

“Lucky 13”

I caught 13 Perseid meteors this night, which I thought was pretty good since I was only shooting for an hour and 45 minutes. I started late, but I think that’s the prime time to see them. (I’m pretty sure after midnight is the best time to view most meteor showers, with the exception being as soon as it gets dark)

“Unwelcoming Invitation”

I’ve passed this barn many times now, and I always wonder what it looks like inside. From what I can see in the windows, it looks like some kind of thrift store, or maybe a storage place for a thrift store.
It’s much creepier looking at night, and this night was foggy, which we all know is a key ingredient of any good horror film.
I think this was the first time I saw the fence open, and since it no longer obstructed the view of the barn, I decided to get it in frame as well. (it also brings the creep factor up a notch, with bonus points for the barbed wire)

“Spin Cycle”

I’ve got quite the collection of photos similar to this, but I keep trying to raise the bar, and these days it’s proving hard to beat. Even more so with sunset timestacks of this barn, as I’ve been trying to best my most famous image for 4 years now.
