Sunday morning, 28th June, saw the valley below our house filled with mist. It ebbed and flowed for an hour or so until the rising sun warmed it and it slowly dispersed. All the leaves and flowers were soaked from the saturated air, the suspended droplets reminding me of Lyn and Lisa’s amazing shots.

Living for partly in Italy, partly in Phuket and partly in other locations around the world – Hong Kong & Kenya when I can – I spend a lot of time photographing anything and everything. I particularly enjoy the challenge of capturing shots of wildlife large and small – from elephants to insects. A wider selection of my work can be seen on my website at
