Based in the Cambridgeshire Fens
I live for adventure, life is just one great big adventure it's as simple as that! I take in all kinds of subjects that happens to catch my artistic eyes and my mood.
My guide to our wonderful butterflies, a life long interest in nature with my thoughts and views, where I have seen these insects, what they have fed on and views on their struggles, each photo has info with links to the main galleries. for the general photographer you maybe more interested in just images but remember without these wonderful and colourful creatures you wont be using that macro lens! please think about our wildlife before the photos, help them live on!
Building a nature garden
To photography the butterflies above you may well need to help them, by buildings a wildlife garden you are giving many insects a home and giving yourself a much wider range of photography subjects!, what more could you want?
See how we made the garden and hows it's laid out, it's fun and costs next to nothing but then again money should be no abject when saving our struggling nature.
Norfolk and North Norfolk
The county of Norfolk with it's many old village churches and villages with Norfolk having the most Saxon round tower churches in the world, standing at 124 with 8 in ruined state and then there's the North Norfolk coastline, with it's out of the way beaches and miles of salt marsh which is great for landscape photography, it's great for wildlife (mostly birds) so for me it offers a wide range of adventures.
My home county and it's love and hate relationship, for architecture we have many wonderful old buildings and our star attraction is Ely cathedral (the ship of the Fens) as for the landscapes the Fens offers something very different, this place is for the person who's free thinking, it's flat and lifeless but offers brilliant moody black and white photography, if it's cute places you looking for then the Fens isn't for you.
Boats and Shipping
You think ships and boats are just for the guys to photograph! well they not! they fun and very simple to make art from, making for great standout subjects within rivers.
Most ships have been taken along the river nene Lincolnshire to Wisbech Cambridgeshire taking in two ports.
The Great British Weather
The word weather to us English is like fish and chips, it's just perfect together.
From the stunning and colourful sunsets through to storm chasing, one of my favourite weather conditions is fog, ohh it just suits my style and turns the subjects into a moody and atmospheric dreamworld, the weather can cause mayhem yet all this power comes from the sky!
