I was born in London and spent my early days tramping round Epping Forest with an ancient Zenith camera. I now live and work in Southampton, UK and I’m a keen walker and photographer and spend a lot of time in the New Forest and the Lake District.
I’m particularly interested in mountains, waterfalls, sunsets and the sea but I try to have my camera with me whenever I can in case something catches my eye.
A week’s holiday in North Devon should have yielded a host of photographic opportunities… but the weather had other ideas – although a few good sunsets were grudgingly provided by Mother Nature as small compensation for battering me all day with wind and rain.
The weather in the UK may not be the best for the time of year but it did mean that there was some snow on the Cumbrian Fells. There was just enough to pick out all the gullies and folds in the land without making everything look white and blank. It also meant that I could climb a couple more mountains and get some shots from the top. / The route up Wandope (near Buttermere) started well but then…
Just back from a week in North Wales. I was hoping to take the camera up some mountains but the weather was so awful that there was very little point. At lower altitudes I managed to get a few good shots – and the rain meant that the waterfalls were spectacular!
Sold my first two pictures today! It gives a buzz out of all proportion to the small amount of money involved… many thanks S & R – you know who you are!
