UK Prime Minister David Cameron. A photo from his recent visit to Liverpool

Arriving on his helicopter and leaving soon after - there was only a short window to photograph David Cameron on his recent visit to Liverpool. With the fastest growing economy outside of London - Liverpool is the place to be!

Promotional photos for the new BBC series of Antiques Road Show

Jonathan Pratt and Charles Hanson were in Liverpool last week as part of the new BBC series of Antiques Road Trip. They're cruising round the UK in an old Alpha Romeo picking up various bargain antiques along the way. There was no love lost between the two and before they came to blows I managed to grab a couple of promo photographs that are going to be used to promote the new series.

"The programme pairs Britain’s best loved antiques experts and sends them on a nail-biting road trip across the UK, competing with each other to make the most money buying and selling antiques. The battle of wits, expert knowledge and egos has proven to be a compelling combination, with the series attracting audiences of up to 2.6 million."

So I woke up nice and early...

for the sunrise... which is not really saying much as the sun only gets up at about 7:30am this time of year in the UK! Still in Wales - out in the countryside, surrounded by farmland, the sun started creeping up over the distant rolling hills... I looked to the east to see some brooding storm clouds ominously rolling their way towards me... the perfect formula = dramatic clouds + sunrise. This black and white HDR image - edited with Adobe Lightroom initially - 3 blended exposures (-2, 0, +2) tone-mapped in Photomatix 3, then back into Lightroom to convert to Black and White. Phew!
