During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    pity it can’t stay like that looks very pretty xx

  • So true! Newly fallen snow is magic. And sadly it too quickly vanishes like magic too.

  • Thank you Vadim! Wanted to do something different but took a bit of experimenting before I reached something I was happy with. Just wonderful hearing you like how this turned out. …Sylvia

    This looks fabulous! Snow can make anything it touches into a magical scene :-)

  • Thank you Trish! Snow really does have a magic touch to make anything look like it’s straight out of a fairy tale. Most of the time… that more than makes up for the fact it feels like it came straight out of the arctic! ;-)
