Over the last few weeks and months I’ve been putting in the miles in the Great British Northern countryside, in preparation for next month’s Everest Base Camp trek, accompanied by Polly, my kids Sam & Harry, my old friend Brad, and of course Morgan the dog.
Though the primary purpose was fitness and weight loss, I couldn’t resist taking the camera. The following images range across Cumbria’s Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors, and Yorkshire’s East Coast on the Cleveland Way.
I can’t say I’ve shed many pounds, but I’ve enjoyed every moment, except perhaps the popping the massive blister at the end of the three peaks 🙂

This week I got to move into our stunning new building at Leeds Dock. It’s a cool workplace designed bottom up for the development teams, and with Sky 2 and the soon to open Sky 1 it demonstrates Sky’s commitment to building a world class technology campus in Leeds.
The building really comes alive when the sun goes down becoming a great subject to test the Sony RX1rII. Some quick snaps follow.
All images were shot at ISO200, aperture priority, using a tripod, and post processed in Lightroom.
