“The Yellow Jersey Rides into Bordeaux”



Congratulations to Jonas Vingegaard and Team Jumbo-Visma. 

Celebrate his win with a “Toast”.  In this case a Glass of White Wine as he rides into Bordeaux on the 7th July 2023.  I took this photo roadside in Bordeaux as the peloton approached the city towards the end of the 7th stage of the 2023 Tour De France

Timed to perfection Jonas is right in the centre of the lens formed by the wine in the glass.

 “The Yellow Jersey Rides into Bordeaux” is available as limited edition Acrylic Glass prints or Matt finish Dibonds in 3 different sizes and in Landscape or Portrait format.

I’ve just had a very happy customer pick up this canvas as a present for his dad.  Lionel and Phil Handy are local classically trained musicians and I’ve done a number of shoots with them.  This photo of Lionel is one which I edited especially for competitions but they liked it too, so Phil thought it would be a great present as a canvas.  For me, this kind of photography is the most rewarding.  Something that the family will appreciate for years to come.

The company I use do a great job with canvases and acrylics but I also print, mount and frame myself.

If you fancy a photo shoot and canvas for yourself or your family just get in touch. tel. 07920 887909

I live in a great place.

I am so lucky to live here in the New Forest.  When you get to know the place and the seasons you have great opportunities to play with your camera.  Clearly other people love the place too because some of my local photos continue to do well in worldwide competitions.

This photo of the pine trees on Aldridge Heath came 5th in a “Woodland” themed competition.

And this photo of 4 Red Deer Stags taken at dawn in August when the antlers were covered in lovely velvet is one of my more successful images.  In this case it came 4th in “Wild Deer”.


I have also sold both these images as impressive large acrylic mounted prints.  Acrylic mounted prints look particularly good in more modern homes whilst canvasses do better in traditional cottages.
