Another year passes and another years worth of photographs are prepared for archive (being moved to external drives to clear up space on my laptop for next years images). While I was getting this ready I thought I’d have a quick look through to remind myself of the years activities and some of the highlights. Here are forty Seen and Unseen images of 2017 that have until now remained unseen and provide a backdrop to 2017.
Seen and Unseen images of 2017
Note: Images are shown chronologically throughout my year
- The Bell, London E1. A traditional pub in the heart of Jack The Ripper territory in London, now more commonly known for it’s wonderful street art painted exterior.
- Office Door, Brick Lane, London E1. One of the colourful entrances to an office in Brick Lane, London. Tastefully decorated with miniature knickers and underpants.
- City Hall Building, London South Bank. Photographed early evening before the sky went black. A fascinating building both inside and out.
- Curbar Edge, Peak District National Park. A winter’s morning up on Curbar Edge in the Central Peaks.
- Derwent Dam Towers. Following heavy rain water flows over the top of Derwent Reservoir in the Peak District. This is the dam that was made famous by the Dambusters film and was used for training runs for the Dambusters operation during the Second World War.
- Water running down the face of Derwent Dam. First time I’ve visited this dam when it’s been full. A fabulous sight to see with the water running down the face of the Dam.
- Reflections at Sheffield Station. An image taken during the night out in Sheffield with Penistone Camera Club. The lights reflected in the water were more interesting than the lights themselves.
- Reflections at Sheffield Station II. Late evening sunlight captured shimmering in the water.
- The Tour De Yorkshire at Thurgoland Bank. 2017 and the Tour De Yorkshire came to Penistone; They’ll be back again in 2018 during Stage 2 of the 4 day race.
- The Yorkshire Dales near Dent. An overcast day but pleasant enough for walking the hills of the Yorkshire Dales near Dent.
- Wild Fell Pony, Howgill Fells, North Yorkshire Dales. Up on the Howgill Fells North of Sedbergh, Wild Ponies still run wild. This one was relaxed enough to let me approach and take a photo with the fells in the background.
- Old Bike at Grassington. This bike was here last time we passed through here, and now over a year later it’s still here. It does make an interesting photograph though.
- Orchid at Pye Flatts Meadow, Silkstone. Another visit to this wonderful wild flower meadow with Penistone Camera Club. I wanted to isolate this orchid from the background so I got down low and photographed it against the sky.
- Orchid at Pye Flatts Meadow II. Slightly reduced aperture and lower camera angle captures some of the background.
- Window Brick Lane, London E1. Another interesting window in Brick Lane.
- Low sun and tide over St Alban Bay, Jersey. It had been a rather wet day, but late evening the sun finally broke through just as it was setting lighting up the wet sands of St Alban Bay.
- Waves at Le Corbiere, Jersey. It was a windy day and the sea was rough.
- Dog walker, St Brelades Bay, Jersey.
- Where the sea and sky become one. With the sea mist the sea and sky have no discernible separation. Looking east from Mont Orgueil Castle, Jersey.
- Mont Orgueil Castle, Jersey. Captured at low-tide from within the harbour.
- Corner Shop, Saltaire. Now a gift shop and art gallery. This would make a fabulous bread shop!
- Rose Bay Willow Herb. A Summer’s evening spent at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve.
- Ducks and Geese at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve
- French Cathedral, Berlin. Stately French church dating back to the 17th century featuring a domed tower with sweeping views. Matched by a similar Building; Neue Kirche, Deutscher Dom on the opposite side of the square.
- Walk on by. Berlin underpass.
- Dome Interior, Beliner Dom, Berlin.
- Memorial to the fallen, Jewish museum, Berlin.
- Afternoon sun on the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin
- Central Library Building Berlin. The Book Burning Memorial lies under this plaza as a permanent reminder of the 20,000 books that were burned here in 1933 at the behest of the Nazis.
- City Trams in Berlin. A typical street scene in Berlin. Here just outside Alexanderplatz Station, Berlin.
- Dome Interior. St. Hedwig’s Cathedral, Berlin. It was too large to capture the entire dome but this gives you an idea at least.
- Model of the Berliner Dom, Berlin. It give you a sense of scale and it’s setting.
- Back at The Bell, London E1. Recently repainted in an Alice in Wonderland theme.
- Grey Squirrel, Sheffield. This Squirrel was so tame and ready to pose. It was like working with a professional model.
- The Grey Squirrel and I decided to add some props into the mix in the form of a tree.
- The top floor of the main warehouse building in Saltaire. This is just about half of the space which measures around 400m end-to-end. This floor of the building is now used for exhibition spaces.
- Typical Street, Saltaire. Looking towards the mill. A route hundreds of mill workers would have walked every morning on the way to the mill.
- Reflection of St Pauls. Another rainy day in London. This morning I felt the reflections of St Pauls Cathedral across the pavement were more interesting than the drab wet buildings of the city.
- Morning Commute. The view of St Pauls Cathedral over the Millennium bridge.
- London Dawn. Another image from my hotel window looking east over Waterloo Station and towards Docklands and the City.
