Welcome to Emma Maye The Wool boat for exclusive knitwear, photo art and knitting supplies

 Colin has been capturing images of the world around him for years and now believes he has become accomplished enough to present  images to you which you may decide you would like to own.

Last up dated 26.4.19. with two new images added to the canal gallery of the results of vandalism. 


As well as trying to follow the main photographers rule and "always carry a camera", and so try to capture images of the world as they appear before me, as Henri Cartier-Bresson said the "decisive moment", I will set off with the camera on the tripod and wait for the right light on a landscape. I hope you enjoy what you find within and will come and visit Emma Maye The Wool Boat. 

The images you will find here are a small selection of what I have in my collection so if you can't find what you are after please get in touch.

At the moment I have seven galleries, though there is some cross over between subjects.

The Amble gallery. Following a weeks holiday in a cottage in the north east town I am slowly adding images to this gallery. A former mining and fishing town under going a bit of a resurgence and had ben named by The Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in 2019. 

The Railway gallery The newest gallery, I thought it was about time as it's one of my best loved subjects.  Up dated 10.2.19, a image published in The Railway Magazine 

Birds Gallery, I'm not really a twitchier, but there are that many birds around the waterways I take the chance when it arrives. up dated 28.3.19

Photo art, my more creative pictures, updated 16.12.18, Images of the lit up pit head gear at Astley. 

Canals Gallery, the natural subject, updated 16.5.19

Burscough Gallery quite a few of these have been used for the yearly calendar I produced for a few years.

Christmas cards that I've produced over the years.

The View from the galley Gallery, at times a different picture every day, normally taken in the morning from one of the galley windows on "Emma Maye" up dated 1.3.18

All these images can be reproduced as a print or I can supply them as a electronic file, and a lot of them I make up into greetings cards that I sell from Emma Maye.

I also sell stock images through Alamy,
