MILKY WAY OVER DARK SEA
A new photograph from last night. I took a walk last night with Ainsley Bennett ( and learn't a few things about the night sky - ainsleybennettphotography.co.uk ), down to the dark beach of Blackgang Chine on the south of the Isle of Wight. The reward was clear skies, and a dark dark sea.
WHAT A SUMMER IT'S BEEN.....
A new beachfront gallery in the town I live in and love. And it's been so busy. I've loved every minute of it.
Some fun adventures too: from shooting the Round The Island Race from a 1960 plane with the doors off, to dolphins and yachts from my speedboat.
Thanks to everybody who managed to visit, and all you online guests.
And so many future plans too... my underwater camera housing just arrived so expect lots of storm and wave pictures on the website soon.... and some astro-photography ..and swimming with basking sharks (fingers crossed!)...and of course plenty of landscapes..
Happy days indeed...
I dream of seeing this - the return of whales to the waters around the Isle of Wight. Not so long ago, in the lives of our great grand parents, whales were a common sight and were even hunted in the Solent.
In the painting I've imagined a Fin Whale breaching with the Needles lighthouse behind. Lit by a crescent moon, you can also make out St. Catherine's and Hurst Lighthouses in the background.
The picture began life as a big messy watercolour, which I then rework in photoshop. Click here- The Return Of The Whale - neil williams
THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE..
Paula Russell won our raffle for Ukraine ( She was so very happy when we spoke!). We are even more thrilled to tell you we sold 641 tickets, which means that with Gift Aid we were able to send £8012.50p to UNICEF in Ukraine yesterday. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported us in this - you guys are amazing!
