Welcome

This site has been set up to showcase some of my favourite photographs.

My preferred subjects are wildlife, landscapes, airplanes(preferably classic military), steam railways and holidays. Wildlife meant birds at first but is rapidly expanding to include almost anything that walks, crawls, flies or swims and now flowers as well!

I have used a camera and/or a video camera for many years but resisted the change to digital photography as I did not like the idea of composite or contrived images.

My mind was changed when I bought a compact digital camera and then took it with me into the Red Sea as I snorkelled on the coral reefs. I could take a hundred shots in an hour and then delete the ones I did not like. What freedom! You can guess my view on the film vs digital issue but I still don't like to do much post-production work.
