So as this year winds down I’ve once again put a post together showing ‘My Year in Pictures‘ and have included in it pictures from many of the subjects that I’ve covered throughout the year ranging from news and feature stories, long-term projects I’ve been shooting, other events I’ve photographed for myself from things that have happened or ‘standalone’ pictures….now there’s quite a few here! So sit back and feel free to have a look through and I hope you enjoy them.

All the best for Christmas, New Year and the holidays (…especially to all the freelance photographers out there because we don’t get holidays).

We can’t afford them! 😉

Cheers folks and thanks for looking at my pictures over the last year…

A recently built stables complex was destroyed by strong winds through the night in Saltburn, Cleveland. The stables, owned by Melissa Coupe of White Heart Lodge on Saltburn Lane housed two miniature Shetland ponies, Locket and Queenie and they were both inside the stable as it was lifted up from its foundations and came crashing down on a nearby road. Both ponies were uninjured.

© Licensed to London News Pictures. 13/05/2015. Whitby, United Kingdom Lol Hodgson, the Baliff of the Manor of Fyling carries out the ancient Penny Hedge tradition in Whitby. The beginnings of this ancient custom dating back to around 1159 are unclear but some say it was penance for the accidental killing of a hermit who was a monk at the abbey. Others say it was to mark a safe landing place or to mark a garth or enclosure or simply to keep out animals. However this now symbolic custom takes place each year on the eve of Ascension Day on the banks of the River Esk in Whitby and is constructed with nine upright hazel stakes driven into the mud with an ancient mallet and nine 'tethers' or pliant branches to intertwine the stakes. Completion of the hedge is followed by three blasts on an ancient horn and the cry of "Out on Ye" is repeated by the bailiff. Photo credit : Ian Forsyth/LNP
