Fires on Stalybridge Moors

As many of you know, there are fires on the moors over Stalybridge, all around Carrbrook. I tried to get some photos today but the Police were there stopping people, which is really a good thing as it keeps us safe. I didn’t manage to fly the drone either as there are helicopters all around dropping water, so I obviously wanted to ensure that my drone was not in anyone’s way, so it was grounded. I may try again tomorrow from a different location.
For now here are some photos of the area and some photos of the surrounding areas.
If you do go to try and see the fire, please keep the roads safe and park out of the way so any emergency vehicles can get through. Stay Safe!

Dragonfly in the garden today

I was at work until this afternoon and decided to do a little gardening while the sun was shining. Imagine my surprise when I spotted  a Dragonfly sat atop my now headless tulips. After a few minutes he was still there so the camera was grabbed, at this point it had my most used Sigma 18-70mm Art Lens installed, a few shots later, he’s still there, so then I ran in and grabbed my Canon 300mm Lens with IS, I cracked off some more shots and then decided to get the Manfrotto tripod and the 100mm Sigma Macro lens, these shots are of course the best. I managed to get very close to him, he flew off a few times but came back, I even got that on video but the lens was on auto-focus so messed up a bit. I have been back out to get some better video but he’s nowhere to be seen, I just hope he returns tomorrow 🙂

Haworth 1940’s Weekend

Does anyone remember this photo?
I thought it was about 5 years ago, but it was 7 years ago, how time flies 😮
Taken on 2011/05/15
It was taken in Haworth at a 1940’s weekend, I was walking back to the car and saw this lady leaning in the doorway, the camera was off, so i quickly fired it up and snapped this lovely candid shot. The photo got thousands of likes on Social Media but I never found out who she was to give her a copy.
Last weekend (20th May 2018) at Howarth’s 40’s weekend, I was looking for this girl, I had almost given up on the hope of finding her when whilst sat having a brew, I noticed a girl behind my parents, I was not 100% sure it was her, so asked my Dad and he said he thought it may be her too, so I asked her, and YES, it was her 🙂 WOW, what are the chances? I now would like her to see this but forgot to ask her name – bloody crazy I know :p

The eye from the sky

We had a nice drive out on Saturday with friends while the weather was great.
We went to a place we found the weekend before on the way to Wales with lovely fields of Gold (I think it’s Rapeseed?)
This is my favourite photo of the day 🙂
