There are so many wonderful old places in Cambridgeshire that it is difficult to choose one location over another. The challenge is to try and create your own vision of what are probably very familiar landmarks. King’s College Chapel is known worldwide, but it is difficult to pass without getting the camera out. Likewise, Ely Cathedral is immediately recognisable to many, and the lure to capture it one more time is very strong.


For a county that has a reputation for being flat there is a surprising variety of photographic opportunities. The fenland landscape doesn’t offer drama, but rather peace and tranquillity, it also offers something unique; big skies. Standing in a fenland vista it is only too easy to know not only what the weather is doing, but also what it has just done, and (crucially) what it is about to do!
