2014 moments #10

I’ve enjoyed sharing my 10 favourite photographs of 2014 with you over recent days. These are the shots that stood out to me and had a particularly strong sense of place and meaning. You can find a gallery of the top 10 after this, the final entry.

The centre of Westminster


This is a piece of pure architectural opulence, captured at the Palace of Westminster in London. The nerve centre of British political life, I wondered if the likes of Margaret Thatcher had ever stopped in the Central Lobby and peered upwards at this sumptuous ceiling. I also spend a lot of time taking photographs with my head flung back – it’s worth it every time.

  1. Opulent is the word for today’s number 10 Mike! A great shot.

    All 10 are stunning images and I would be hard pressed to choose a favourite, so I won’t :) An interesting and I’m sure enlightening time looking back on your year of photography and I’m looking forward to what catches your eye in 2015.


    • Thank you as always for taking a look, Lee. Yes, that is a ceiling to end all ceilings! Well the reflection is now at a close – time to look ahead. I made a tentative start today with a houseplant of mine which has unexpectedly produced a beautiful stem of flowers. I’m afraid there won’t be much pollination going on there! More on that soon…

  3. All very striking Mike and shows the diversity of your photographic skills off so well – if I had a favourite it would be Freers’ bliss because I love emptiness! Best title goes to Content without water – shall always think of this when I see boats on an ebb tide.


    • Thanks so much Laura, this is really appreciated. I think for sense of place I’m with you on Freers’ Bliss which catches a memorable moment. Now it’s time to look ahead and seek out some fresh material for the year ahead!
