Thanks for visiting. This is my first blog so will proceed slowly!
Well December and winter is upon us. An interesting year to say the least! The final tour of 2016 engulfed the stunning and remote part of Scotland. Ardnamurchan. The most westerly part of the UK mainland. I have added a gallery on the site of some of the images captured there. I will let them tell the story.In November I was delighted to gain to photographic distinctions for my work.
I gained an Associate with the Welsh Photographic Federation, and a “D” distinction with the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain. The year has been busy with presentations and workshops. Several bookings are now “pencilled” in the diary. I think 2017 will be a very different world!

Back from a 9 day visit to amazing Dubai. Unfortunately picked the wrong season! Temperatures well into the 100's with high humidity to mach. However it is indeed an incredible city, big on all fronts. Would like to return in the cooler seasons.
Well 2016, like other years, is wizzing by! Is this an age thing? The older you get the faster it goes. But hey, Age is just a number, someone once told me.
Major part of my home based work has been preparing and staging my own exhibition. ~ It is staged at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire. Very pleased to the reception that it is getting. Some wonderful comments by friends and visitors. I have recieved lots of requests and invites, to judge and present and camera clubs throughout Wales and beyond! Busy time ahead. Heading out today (26th August) to celebrate my 72nd birthday, in UAE Dubai. Report and hopefully images on my return. So must leave it here for the time being. See you all soon. Please come back.
Well, here we are another year. Time fly's. First trip of 2016 was a great trip to the Yorkshire Dales with my good friend Jo Cameron. Lots of snow and red squirrels alowed us to have a great trip. Despite some "hairy" moments of the icy "Old Coal Road" we survived.
February/March. An amazing photographic safaria to Tanzania,East Africa, with friend Jeff Thomas. it was a wonderful trip with many great sightings and 4000 images now to go through. A new gallery on my site features some of the fantastic sightings we encountered.
