Having climbed to the top of Capstone in Ilfracombe I then made my way back down the path when I noticed this view. It gives a great shot of Ilfracombe complete with a bonfire in the distance. Picture: Nick Dee
An Ilfracombe photographer has been sharing his stunning landscape shots on our iwitness24 North Devon website.
Nick Dee takes most of his photos around North Devon, and particularly his hometown of Ilfracombe.
He said: “I have been taking photos for the last couple of years and it has become my main hobby.
“I enjoy taking a wide variety of photographs including landscapes, seascapes, night shots, buildings and some astro photography.
On one of the few occasions when we had a clear night I managed to capture St Nicholas Chapel. The moon is just out of view but it lit up the chapel beautifully. Picture: Nick Dee
“I also look to capture storm shots, from a safe and secure position, which I find amazing to watch and photograph.”
Nick said he feels Ilfracombe is a ‘hidden gem’ and extremely photogenic, with something new around every corner.
He added: “The North Devon coastline also produces some outstanding sunsets, which are always so good to watch.
“I particularly enjoy taking night pictures and capturing the beauty of the lights in and around Ilfracombe, especially around the harbour area.
This was a sunset shot taken at Combesgate Beach near Woolacombe. It really is stunning there. Picture: Nick Dee
“I feel that I am so lucky to live in this area and I enjoy taking and sharing my photographs to those who love it here but may not be able to get out as much as they would like.”
