Taken in nithering conditions at the mouth of the Tyne, temp -6c, wind off the sea, and humidity was 70 to 80%. I could only stand there for an hour before loosing the feeling in my hands, only get the feeling back all in one go whilst warming up in the car. Ouch! I must be getting soft in my dotage.

Canon 450D
f/16, 20 seconds, ISO 100
Sigma 28-135mm @ 50mm

Inspired by my dad in visual arts and music from a very early age. He mentored me in photography, film processing and printing when I was 7 or 8 years old. He wouldn’t teach me to play guitar though so I had to teach myself, and played bass in a group while I was at University for pocket money. I took early retirement in 2009 and rekindled my passion for photography. My art is eclectic. I’ll photograph anything and everything. The world is full of images just waiting to be captured.
