Unfortunately the Tyne Tour for 2020 didn’t happen last weekend due to the restictiction currently in place in England for Covid-19. The decision not to run the event was definitely the right one. I for one definitely missed seeing the action unfold from Rescue Rock on the North Tyne. For all those that also missed not being in the Tyne Valley last weekend here is a post with some images from the last few years.Continue reading
I thought I’d post a few of my MTB Enduro shots from the last couple of years. I hope I’m starting to get my eye in.
Shots at the Ard Rock and Ard Moors 2018 were taken with a Nikon D500. All other shots were taken with a Sony Alpha A9.
The links will take you to my Roots and Rain pages where you’ll find tens of thousands of my images from these events.

I have taken around 2k images on the North Tyne today, or #thetynebezi as its now know. At 1.84 on the gauge the river was running well following rain last night and release from Kiedler water. The images were taken using a professional full frame camera. The images posted below are low resolution.Continue reading
More images taken from Rescue Rock on the North Tyne. Welcome to Tyne Tour 2017 – Part II.
Water was low but the stoke was high. Great action, warmish weather and great light have made for a great day photographing paddlers at the Tyne Tour 2017.
This is just a small selection of the 1000s that were taken today.
The organisers of the Tyne Tour are ramping things up a bit for this years event. For 2014 the Tyne Tour will become the Tyne Tour Festival with a greater number of attractions/events based at Tyne Green in addition to the Tour and world famous Ceilidh.
I travelled just under two hours North for the official opening of North East Kayaks and Paddles. When you travel so far to a store you hope that the range of stock is up to scratch and that your journey hasn’t been wasted. This was certainly the case today. Loads of kit from Palm, PeakUK, Nookie, HF, Werner, Robson, Dagger, Pyranha, P&H, Wavesport, Liquid Logic, Sweet, Shredready plus lots more. There seemed to be plenty of stock and a wide range of sizes and colours. Here are a few shots from today.
