Photography is an obsession. I spend as much free time as I can manage outdoors, taking photographs, even sometimes at 5 o’clock in the morning !

My passion is landscapes, especially the vivid colours on display around sunrise and sunset.

    Sensational golden beauty, the morning mists on the water and soft silhouettes are peaceful and so serene. I also love the slight spherical look of the horizon and the placement of the boat within your frame. This is a beautiful shot.
    I will send you an invitation to Sensational Sun.
