BMC Lancs Guide out

In August 2016 the BMC Lancs Guide was released, I’d done a lot of climbing action photography for this, and was very pleased that nearly 40 of my images were chosen.

Some trials with ICM

In search of some exercise and fresh air, we went on one of our favourite walks down lower Monsal Dale, in the peak district. It had been very rainy, and the day involved much finding of driest ways around large patches of deep mud. Light was flat – little sun to be seen – so…
