Out of all my shots taken on our 40th anniversary trip to Venice at the end of September this year, this one of the gondolier was Doug's favourite which is a fitting tribute to him.
No clicks please
Just in case someone has not been on the Forums recently... sadly Doug died on the 30th November.

My heartfelt condolences Louise at this very sad time for you and us aswell. Though I never met Doug, I felt the relationship I had with him via this site, was one of a genuine friend and mentor. He is still in my "favourites" and will remain so as a tribute to his wonderful personality and his great skill with the camera.

So many couples never make five years and although I don't know you personally, I know through your's and Doug's time on ePHOTOzine it seems you had a wonderful 40 years. So sad to hear that news the other day. I really thought Doug had pulled through.
We at ePHOTOzine wish you our sincere condolences Louise.

Very sad to hear of your sad loss Louise. My thoughts are with you.

I think I saw you and Doug one day about three years ago near Lochan na h Achlaise... I wish I had come over to say hello then. Doug used to keep me right on EPZ when I made mistakes about locations of places and Lochs. He had a great knowledge and obvious passion for the beauty of Scotland.

Kind regards

Jim

Louise I was so saddened to hear the news about Doug's untimely passing away. He was a real gentleman and his stunning images a source of inspiration to countless ePHOTOziners. Although I never meet him (which I count as a great loss) he always took the time to comment on my uploads and encourage me since I joined this site. I will miss him greatly. My thoughts are with you and your family through these sad times.

I haven't been on EPZ for some time and so have only just learned of Doug's passing. I am so very sorry to hear of this, and send my love and condolences to you. He is a great loss not only to photography but to the world around him, which he brightened with his kindness and humour. I will always be thankful for the encouraging and kind comments he continually made on my amateur efforts. They were most appreciated.
