As Is

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

    Nice shot, have you cropt this photo?

  • Thanks Hawker – no – straight from the camera – I had the zoom lens on and it was a but difficult and as I said to Hilary I decided to leave the tree – bad idea?

    No not the tree, try cropping the foreground close to the boats and see what it looks like.

  • I will experiment for sure Hawker, and we will see what it looks like :)
