Taken on the banks of a very high River Vonne in the Vienne regions of SW France, the river was running fast and full that day!

A beautiful church inside and out, the building commenced in the 12th Century and had additions added in the 15th Century. A very historic and tranquil place to visit.

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
