We spotted a few photos appearing on Flickr from local photographer Ian Hex and we thought they deserved to be shared.


Ian describes himself as an “office monkey” by day but once he’s free from behind his desk he’s off in and around Preston taking photos.

Take a look below at some simply stunning shots of Preston and then check out his blog Light Sweep for more of Northern England’s natural landscapes.
