I went to Berrow beach with my Horseman view camera, in hope of finding the wreck of the Norwegian sailing ship SS Nornen, which ran aground in 1897.

A couple of shots of Hereford […]Read more "My first shot at developing – results"

First we visited the cathedral. It seemed rude to take photos inside, but I managed this photo of […]Read more "A weekend in Hereford"
