About This Image 1

Fire In The Sky   About This Image. On the evening of the hottest day of the year I decided to go out with my gear to take an image. The sky was clear and the image I wanted required very low sunlight. The Low sun picks out all the branches of the trees with a red hue that looks stunning. I live not far from a river and the lock that is there is fairly heavily used, but I thought it would be worth a visit even so just in case. However at...

Trials and Tribulations

It is now 4 months since I decided to become a photographer that earns a living from taking photographs. Why the phrase professional photographer is so difficult to use I do not know.

Moving on

I have made reference to a poor year last year in terms of taking new images. I stand by this the whole thing collapsed into a large hole. Looking back this was probably the right thing to happen.

A Journey

A couple of week ago I wrote about the impending trip to Africa to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. In the post I wrote about fears and the fact that it was so far outside my comfort zone as to be in a different country. (Which it was) Lets get the elephant right in the open. I did not summit, but I am happy with the decision that I took at the time and it was entirely the right decision. What I want to tell you about is how I felt about it all....
