Me and my stuff

I've always liked photography, and for years used a number of Canon and Minolta film cameras. I sold the lot in 2003 and bought a Nikon Coolpix 4500, but soon decided that a digital SLR was what I really needed.

Since 2004 I've been through five Canon EOS bodies from a 20D to a 5D Mark III, and 20 lenses and extenders from 14mm to 500mm. Thank god for Ebay.

SUNDAY 12th JULY 2015


It's a famously well-photographed scene but I thought I'd give it one last go before they lower the track to put the electric wires through Sydney Gardens, in Bath. No doubt they'll tidy up the errant buddleia as well...

This was on the return past Twerton Meadows; a shocking 16 frames at 1/50th and this was the only usable one. I really need to practice my skills.



Shaun the Sheep. Like Gromits only different. I thought I might try to do a version of this but unfortunately the Clifton Tower of the bridge is covered in scaffolding and plastic sheeting. So I had to find a different shot...



Last year I had a good run with the Peregrines in the Avon Gorge, but this year I paid fewer visits and needless to say didn't do well. This pic of one of the young birds was the best of a lacklustre bunch. Good airshow practice though :-)
