Friday image No.038


This week's image was just for a bit of fun and experimentation. Whilst I was in Bolivia I was camped half way up a volcano at around 4,300m. The sky was as clear as anything and the star show amazing. I decided to pop the camera on a tripod, whack on the old fisheye lens [...]

What a great group of people you are


I just wanted to post a quick note to say thank you for all your messages of support.

The Bleak Weather Returns


I was out walking yesterday in the Lakes - what a mistake. The weather was dreadful. It was windy, foggy and the rain was driving down hard. Despite this I managed to pull out the Sony RX10 and rattled off a few frames. I quite like the one above as I think it conveys well [...]
