Bempton Cliffs and Yorkshire

I have travelled to a lot of places and seen many a sunset or dramatic landscape but always return to my homeland. The following shots are from where I live and will always have a sense of complete awe, for the beautiful county of Yorkshire.©Lucas Thompson-Murphy

The cat of the house

We've had our at about 15 years and she has been a pleasure and a pain. Just like any child would be. I remember picking her up from a rescue centre all those years ago. Love her to bits though. ©Lucas Thompson-Murphy

A long weekend

Having a bank holiday weekend means an extra day to do nothing. Monday is a free day. After four hours sleep I have managed to edit some photos from last night. To be honest I was trying to get a good shot of the Milky way but couldn't get one so ventured out to the... Continue Reading →

It's a beautiful place and always busy with dog walkers, runners and families of all ages spending time out and enjoying the space. Hope you like... Continue Reading →

Scarborough from the castle

Looking out from Scarborough castle down the South bay has the be the best view. I remember walking up to the walls nearly 30 years ago and taking a similar shot on a 35mm Nikon. The sea fret rolled in and set the scene perfectly. A few years later I revisited and took the same... Continue Reading →

Photo booth, Portraits

I'm not much of an event photographer, as the shots I take are high colour or monochrome. Wedding photography would be a nightmare for me. I found it strange having the interaction before shooting. It's not a knew thing and I'm not shy in any way at all. But it's not my comfort zone being... Continue Reading →
