Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. Although always having an interest in photography it was not until 2005 that I acquired a digital camera and started to take photographs. Being an IT person I found it easy to analyse and understand the results and therefore I quickly mastered the camera.
The difficult part is mastering the composition and I know from looking at other photographers work that this can take years to achieve. Fortunately, I am very lucky as I have an understanding wife and lots of time to go out taking pictures. There is nothing more rewarding than watching wildlife or seeing the sun come up over
the horizon and it can be even more rewarding if this can be captured into a photographic memory that myself, and hopefully others, will be able to enjoy. I really appreciate you looking at my work and hope that you might contact me with any feedback.

2018 October - Ecuador

Another place on my bucket list and the first real time in South America (other than Chile in transit to Antarctica). The trip consisted of three days in the capital Quito, followed by five days in the Cloud forest of Mindo and then fourteen days on a boat around Galapagos. Quito is a beautiful city and it was a nicce place to acclimatise to the altitude before going up to the cloud forest near Mindo. The cloud forest is really all about birds and this was my first chance to photograph hummingbirds and hopefully to see the elusive Andean Cock-of-the-rock. The Galapagos was all about reptiles with a few birds and mammals. The whole trip, four weeks, was extremely enjoyable and very sociable. On the boat, Tip Top II we meet some great people and had a really great time. Thanks to all my new friends for being so patient!
