Taken at one of my favourite places in the UK Leigh on Sea, Essex, my last visit to the UK and my old hometown, back in 2006…
The circumstances for taking this photo were sad, but everytime I look at this calm scene just as the sun starts to make it’s way to bed, I think of our friends who we shared the day with and one friend who departed from our lives too young and too early! This photo is for Stuart (a lifeboatman,sailor and all time great person) and his family who are left.

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.

I also have a FaceBook Page

    This would make a good subject for a simple painting.
    Nice silhouettes and water glow.
