Welcome to my portfolio. With a passion for travel, most of the shots are taken abroad.
Here are some of the countries we have visited:-
Austria, Belgium, Canary Islands, Carribean, Czech republic, China, Croatia, Ecuador & The Galapagos islands, Egypt, France, Germany, Holland, Hong kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malaysia, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Slovenia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey & the USA.
We were lucky enough to get to New Zealand in 2013...another `trip of a lifetime'. You have to get them in whilst you're still fit and able!!!
Our next trip is to Iceland!!!! (must put the thermals on my xmas list!!)
We moved to Northern Ireland in 2009 and have now settled here permanently. We have recently moved from one seaside location to another. Lots of wonderful countryside and finding new places to see every week. All very fascinating and with great photo Opps.
Julie & I now only have 1 cat. In the last year we have lost `Jimmy' and `Thomas'. They both lived to the ripe old age of at least 20. Our more recent arrival, Mia, a Birman Sealpoint, was a stray. We have had her for about 3 yrs. She has a heart condition, but is stabilised on medication.
Still using my Nikon D60 (would love to upgrade but money is tight just now) with a Nikon 17-80 wide angle lens and a Sigma 70-300. I have also recently invested in a Nikon 35mm prime...has some amazing clarity.
Thank you to everyone who looks, I am always pleased to get critique/comments. I often have a go at Modifications, which is a great way of learning about photography and the multitude of software out there. I'm always pleased if others see a different approach to my shots, so feel free to mod too.
I have also recently `discovered' panorama stitching and invested ina new tripod. The only way is up!!
