One Week In The UK

Sunrise at Durham Heritage Coast, UK

Sunrise at Durham Heritage Coast, UK

I spent last week in the UK. I visited the awesome guys at Sunderland Office of my company.  UK is kinda my second home even though I lived there for just 2 years. It’s mainly because my younger daughter was born there, my older daughter started attending to the kindergarten there and it’s also a place where I bought my first car :) I stayed in Highfields Hotel in East Rainton. It’s located close to the place where I lived when I lived in the UK.

It sucks I wasn’t that much into photography when I lived there. There’s so many wonderful places to visit… I knew I wouldn’t miss that opportunity this time! I’d get up at 5AM and grab the first bus at 6.18AM to barely make it on time (before sunrise) to the coast. I must say the interesting parts of the coastline were not always easy to get to! Slippery (and huge) rocks, ruined stairs didn’t make my life easy and there were a few occasions I nearly broke my leg or fingers. But hey, everything for the photo, right?

So I think I managed to make 3 not too bad shots during that week. I’m hoping I’ll be visiting that place more often now. There’s still many places in the area that I’d like to visit in the mornings :)

But what’s even more important, the people there (my team especially) are just great!

Sunrise at the beach

It's been a while since I went out to shoot photos. After checking the weather yesterday I knew I couldn't miss the sunrise today. And, you know, I usually prefer shooting black and white gloomy landscapes of doom but each time I see a sunrise like today I just lose my mind run around taking…

Frozen Lake

Another winter morning. I set my alarm clock to 6AM but completely ignored it :) I woke up about 7AM and to be honest I didn't think the weather was that good. But then I thought "Hey, at least I'm going to have a walk". When I arrived at the lake, the weather wasn't better…

Sunrise in Gdansk

I recently discovered a new place in Gdansk - Góra Gradowa (Gradowa Hill) which has a fantastic view at the Old City of Gdansk. The picture above was take during my third visit there. The clouds on the horizon looked like they could make the sunrise completely invisible but there were a few cracks that…

Gdansk at Night

Gdańsk... I remember that when I lived in the UK I missed this city much. It was here where I went to University, it was here where I got my first real job, it was Gdansk where I got married and it's the birthplace of my older daughter. We now live close enough to Gdansk…

The Wind

After a very foggy Saturday came a very windy Sunday. All fog was gone. In fact, it was so windy that I would sometimes have trouble taking photos because I couldn't hold the camera still. Fortunately I took a heavy tripod and after driving my wife to her photography school I decided to revisit one…

The Month Of Fog

November is upon us. And it's one of my favourite months when it comes to photography. Most of the November days in my area are very foggy. I love this weather. The only thing that sucks about November is how short the days are. Oh well... you can't have everything, right? Last weekend Karolina had…

I’ve been dabbling in the sea after sunset again…

.. and it was warmer than I thought it would be :) It's almost November after all and the temperature outside was 6 degrees C (42F). It was a very busy day. Karolina spent it in analogue portrait photography workshop at her school and I attended free Fujifilm Workshop. It was fun, though not my…

Yet another morning at Babie Doly

After a week in the UK I finally had some time to look at the photos I took last week in Babie Doly near Gdynia. When I arrived there I thought I wouldn't get any good photos. Skies were almost absolutely clear and there was only a narrow but very long cloud on the horizon.…

Homage to Mr. K. (Super Moon Rising)

You're all probably sick and tired of all those colourful photos, right? Yuck! So lets go back to B&W for a while. One of my greatest  inspirations has always been the one and only Michael Kenna. Stark compositions, contrast and yet softness, it was all there. If I were at least 1/100th as good as he…
