Title • in winter's depths

I managed to spend some time up at Fleetwood today, and while the light was pretty atrocious for most of the time we were there, it did brighten up just as we were about to leave. As with yesterday's shot, I had a great deal of trouble producing a colour version of this shot I liked – it's almost as though winter sucks the colour out of everything, leaving nothing but drab greys and browns in its wake – but I'm reasonably happy with how this one turned out. If you're interested though, I did produce a monochrome version too:


In many ways I think I prefer the second version, but a lot of my recent entries have been in black and white (or shades thereof) so I thought it was about time for a change. Let me know which one you prefer.

On another matter: it looks as though the new version of the site has settled down – it's a few hours since anyone emailed me with a problem – so it looks as thought the move went reasonably smoothly. As you can see, things are pretty much as they were on the previous version, but I've reworked a few sections. My about page is a bit more comprehensive, I've added a frequently asked questions page (that I haven't had time to write yet), and I've overhauled the buying prints page (and have also included some custom purchase pages for each image). Other than that though, it's pretty much business as usual ... fingers crossed :-)
