The Mull tour has been and gone and we had another successful tour. I will add details of any future tours, to Mull or elsewhere, as the occasion arises. Thanks for your interest!
November is the time of year when, like most sensible people, my thoughts turn to warmer places. This year I had toyed with the idea of several tropical destinations but, for various reasons, decided in the end to try southern Portugal, the region known as the Algarve, inspired by the variety of reptiles and amphibians […]
In March 2015 we made a second visit to Chilean Patagonia. For two weeks we toured the region from the coast at Puerto Natales to the Argentinian border. Our daughter Victoria had organised accommodation at some of the more remote estancias, and we were privileged to visit some areas that are rarely seen. The Sierra […]
Named for the distinctive Joshua Trees, Yucca brevifolia, that grow in the northern part of the park, Joshua Tree National Park covers the transition between the Colorado Desert to the south and the Mojave Desert to the north. The northern half is best known, with its forests of Joshua Trees and unusual rock formations. This a photographer’s paradise, […]
After spending an enjoyable but unproductive day at the Ainsdale Nature Reserve on the Merseyside coast looking for signs that the natterjack toads had started breeding (they hadn’t) we decided to use the last couple of hours of the day to re-visit Antony Gormley’s installation on the beach at Crosby, a few miles south. Named […]
This year our workshop on Mull had mixed weather – two glorious days, two rather wet and windy days and two days with a bit of each, but we found plenty to photograph, as usual, and on days when photography was not possible we held Photoshop and Lightroom tutorials, largely thanks to Alex Hyde, who […]
Hall of Mosses, Hoh Rain Forest on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington state, USA. I have just added a new gallery “American West Coast“ to display some of the photographs taken on a trip to this interesting and varied region back in 2008. Sorry it’s taken so long!
Nick Garbutt and I are pleased to confirm that the annual one-week workshop on the Isle of Mull is guaranteed to run now that we have the minimum number of participants. This will be the tenth year we have visited Mull to photograph its spectacular scenery and wildlife and Nick and I are both looking […]
It may sound like something out of one of Edward Lear’s nonsense poems, but there really is a place called Rosh Pinah. It’s a small mining town in southern Namibia, along the C13, a road that runs from near the South African border at Noordoewer to the small town of Aus. For about 100km, between […]
Calabria – the “toe” of Italy – is not well-known to tourists and those that do make it tend to stick to towns such as Tropea and Pizzo, on the coast. The interior, though, is mountainous and covered with extensive forests of beech and pine. We based ourselves in the small town of Serra San […]
We had to go to Liverpool on February 23rd to pick up a passport, and used the rest of the day photographing buildings around the waterfront and Albert Dock. The weather was superb and the architecture equally so. It’s easy to see why Liverpool was awarded the “European Capital of Culture” accolade in 2008. The way […]
In September I led a small group of eco-tourists to Sabah, Borneo. This was my fourth trip, although the itinerary has been different each time. On this occasion I stayed on for a short time to visit the Mulu National Park, in Sarawak, which I had not visited before, and the Mount Kinabalu National Park, […]
