  2. Kiwi's photography course - it's free*

    How to get a photo similar to the one I took today of the Old Coach Road and one which I'm quote chuffed about how it came out.

    Step one

    Take lots of photos from all sorts of angles.

    Here's the original and not very interesting shot which I took looking down the tunnel of trees but from ground level to get the fallen leaves in shot.

  3. Old town to home, 24 hour photo bivi blog

    I recently rode the full length of the towpaths along the Leeds - Liverpool canal.

    Why? I live in Liverpool and ride short sections of it nearly every time I ride on my local trails as it runs straight through the village where I live so I use this rather than use the busy roads and because I was born in Leeds it would be good to ride to it rather than drive to it on the M62.

    I've thought about doing this ride for a few years now but never had the chance, bike, work, home ...
