This is the river close to home. We had just had a fall of snow and I played around with software trickery.

This particular shot started off as seven images and I processed them into a single HDR image. This was long before the days when even mobile phones had an HDR option, and I thought the processing brought the still-laden sky, in particular, to life.

These birding cruises we used to take offered so much material, not just sea birds. Returning back to port one evening, I looked out to sea…

From another reenactment. Can you imagine? Somewhere, Monday – Friday, some guy keeps a tank locked up in his garage? Or, maybe he parks it on the street outside his house? I wonder if anyone ever dared give him a ticket?

You know last week I mentioned that Rouen was one my favourite haunts? This is the cathedral, we did this crazy silly trip one year, the weekend before christmas.
