Exmouth resident James Airth talks about his passion for pictures often captured while out for a run.

My little daughter loves coming here and watching all the boats come and go. The marina has changed dramatically over the years but I still love the vibrant atmosphere of the place.

All my photos are taken using my iPhone and mostly when I am out on a run. I sometimes like to edit my photos to add a bit more atmosphere or a change of perspective.

I do not have one particular favourite thing I like to take pictures of but just if I see something I like when out and about I generally end up taking a photo of it and deciding later if it is worth keeping.

I have been taking photos for several years and am just starting to choose what subjects to shoot and when. I have only recently in the last year moved to Exmouth and am starting to discover all the new places where to take great photos. I may at some point even invest in a camera!

Lovely walk along here most evenings and the photos are always amazing whatever the weather. One of my favourite places in Exmouth.

This photo reminds me of foreign holidays I took as a child with my mum. It's Exmouth but could be anywhere on the Mediterranean coast.

A bit of peace and quiet. Amazing sunshine and a clear blue sea. Perfect. Picture: James Airth A bit of peace and quiet. Amazing sunshine and a clear blue sea. Perfect. Picture: James Airth

Exmouth to Exeter cycle path - I like to use the cycle path a lot and this shot is taken on the bridge just before the commando training centre.

One of our best places to go and eat and drink and meet friends during the summer. Love the views from here. Picture: James Airth One of our best places to go and eat and drink and meet friends during the summer. Love the views from here. Picture: James Airth

One of my favourite photos. Just the simplicity of a beach, some buckets and spades and the fun you can have. A perfect day with my children. Picture: James Airth One of my favourite photos.

Took us ages to find a crab when we were on the rocks at low tide in Exmouth. I found this one and it took about half an hour to get this shot. I love the way the crab came out and just stared at me. Placed him back in the sea after and safely out of reach of the seagulls. Picture: James Airth Took us ages to find a crab when we were on the rocks at low tide in Exmouth.

I had just finished a very hot 5K run and the sea was the perfect place to sit and cool down. The waves were just washing over my feet and the sun was directly in front of me. Perfect photo.

This bee was so busy collecting pollen from the flower it did not even notice me lean right in to get this shot. I took several photos but this one shows the bee perfectly formed and balanced.

I took this photo during a run very early on a Saturday morning. Just as I approached the end of the beach the fog lifted to reveal the sun slowly rising over the back of Orcombe Point. After taking the photo I sat and watched the sun fully come up. Picture: James Airth I took this photo during a run very early on a Saturday morning.

This photo was a spur of the moment shot. I was eating out at the tapas restaurant in Exmouth when I saw this amazing sunset starting to form. It grew bigger until the whole sky seemed to be orange. Incredible sight. Picture: James Airth This photo was a spur of the moment shot. I was eating out at the tapas restaurant in Exmouth when I saw this amazing sunset starting to form.

I took this photo after going out during a storm. Just as I arrived at the top of Orcombe Point the rain stopped and the wind died down and for the briefest of moments the sun came out. It was quiet and calm for about five minutes before the storm started up again. I edited the photo to make it a bit more dramatic. Personally one of my favourite photos.

I took this photo after taking my children to school. The weather was awful but I just wanted to get a photo which showed the power of the sea along the Esplanade in Exmouth. The clouds above were just rolling across as the waves crashed up over the sea wall. Picture: James Airth I took this photo after taking my children to school.
