Originally from Manchester, UK, now living in Warsaw, Poland and Tarifa, Spain, but also travelling frequently.

I currently use a Nikon D300 with Sigma lenses (18-250, 150-500, 105) and, for travel, a Sony NEX-7 with Sony (18-55, 55-210) and Tamron (18-200) lenses.

Enough of the boring stuff… on with the show.

    Awesome work. Did someone tell you about rain-x? or, did you try that out yourself? Looks really good.

  • Thanks Rich. I’m still finding my way around here and your work was the first that really caught my eye. Rain-X was suggested by a photographer at another site – it helps give taller, more rounded drops

    Awesome! Just awesome!
    If I may ask…..what on earth is Rain-X?
    Is it some sort of window treatment for when it rains?

  • Yup, that’s exactly what it is, Susan! Apparently you’re supposed to put it on the windscreen of your car…

    That’s a top shot AJ and a neat trick. I use rain-x aswell but for repelling water off the port of my waterproof housing. You can get ultra clear shots like that.

  • Hey, thanks for the thumbs up, Tim (or Nic?) Looking forward to seeing some of your work here.

    (I’m stuck in Ankara for a while but hope to be back in Tarifa late June.)
