I was advised, because of health issues regarding a blocked artery in my left leg, to walk everyday or risk losing the leg which, to be honest, I quite like attached to the rest of my body.
Having to walk on a daily basis meant I needed motivation, so in 2004, at the age of 55 I took up photography again after many, many years away from the hobby.
The images in these galleries are mostly as a result of my daily walks (more precisely my daily stop/start hobbles).
The gallery is split into various categories and the number of images will grow almost on a daily basis. By clicking on each thumbnail you will be able to view images at up to 1200 pixels.
Some galleries contain images that are very similar, maybe a birds head is turned just a little more etc. I upload all images so that you can decide which is best suited to your needs rather than me restrict it to the images I prefer. Click the image above or HERE to enter the gallery.
Though I try my best I cannot guarantee that all images are correctly identified. If you see errors or missing IDs that you can correct then please let me know.
Because of the high volume of images in the galleries file sizes are kept quite low and may not reflect the true quality of the original images. However, some images may only suitable for web use.
