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.

    This is absolutely amazing, I really had to toss up, which one of the 3 images to feature, but this one stood out. Great composition.

  • Thank you so much, Alex – I really appreciate the support. I only recently discovered HDR and I am still amazed at the detail and tonal range that the process can expose.
