The Old Lizard Point Lifeboat Station at Polpeor Cove came into operation in 1914 and remained in service until 1958 when the new station at Kilcobben took over allowing larger lifeboats to be used.
This is the most southerly location on mainland Great Britain.
This beautiful 12th century cruciform church stands at the heart of one of the most attractive villages in the Chiltern hills in Buckinghamshire.
This image was made recently during the golden hour, when evening light is at its very best.
St Mary the Virgin, Hambledon, Buckinghamshire
An image for Easter taken late afternoon during a period of wonderful light, known as the Golden Hour.
Marlow Bridge in the Golden Hour
Every now and then I rummage through my photo archive to see if there is anything worthy of resurrection. This time I came up with a series of images that I had made of old Chesham in 2013.
I was asked to produce a series of images of Chesham to be hung in a local office building. I was not ecstatic about the prospect as I was not sure that Chesham was particularly photogenic. However, as you can see from the images below there are some pleasing buildings and street scenes to be found in the old town of Chesham, which includes the pedestrian town centre.
The Clock Tower
The George and Dragon
St Mary’s Church Gates
St Mary’s Church
The Queens Head

Happy New Year to all.
This one of the first images I have made in 2016 and shows Marlow Bridge and All Saints Church basking in late afternoon sunshine.

First of all marlowimagefactory has a new blog theme for 2016, which I hope will show my images to better effect.
I have posted four images made during the final days of 2015, all of which were shot in low light conditions with a Canon 6D camera and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens.
Winter Sunset from Marlow Bridge
This image was shot from Marlow Bridge on 7th December at 16:03h with camera settings Aperture f/4.5 : Shutter Speed 1/90 : ISO 100.
All Saints Church and Marlow Bridge from Marlow Lock Approach
This image was made on 28th December at 16:20h with camera settings Aperture f/4.0 : Shutter Speed 1/125 : ISO 3200.
Marlow Mill and Marlow Weir
This image was shot from Marlow Bridge across Marlow Weir to the residential development of Marlow Mill at 15:58h on 7th December with camera settings Aperture f/4.0 : Shutter Speed 1/125 : ISO 500.
All Saints Church
This is an HDR (High Dynamic Rage) image of All Saints Church from Marlow Bridge. HDR gives a rather surreal feel and is useful in salvaging rather drab but otherwise good images.
This images was made at 15:50h on 28th December using camera settings Aperture f/4.0 : Shutter Speed 1/125 : ISO 400.
That’s it for 2015 and thanks to all who have read my blog.
Happy New Year.
My Christmas present to myself this year is a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens. This arrived at the beginning of December and has so far lived up to its fine reputation.
Here are two images that were made in low light, combining the EF 24-105 lens with a Canon 6D camera.
All Saints Church from Marlow Bridge at Twilight
Both images were possible by use of the extensive ISO range of the Canon 6D and the high quality glass of the EF 24-105 lens.
River Mooring in Silhouette
This package now offers new opportunities to explore low light level photography. Because of bad weather I have not been able to try out the full extent of the lens’s capabilities but look forward to doing so in the New Year.
