Welcome to my personal corner of cyberspace. I use the site to show off some of my photographs. If you like what you see, why not get in touch?
Sognefjord near Flåm
We hadn't been to the Isle of Wight before so we decided to spend a few days in June 2018 exploring.
Osborne House is where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert would go to relax. Mind you, given the number of children they had, there would have been limited opportunity for relaxation!
Some images of Osborne House are here
The Norwegian Fjords is one of those places which everyone should visit. So, we had to go. In May 2018 we took a cruise from Bristol which had the advantage of being close to home; so not far to travel to the ship - the "Marco Polo".
Having said that everyone should visit, the whole place is overwhelmed by tourists who contribute little to the local economy. Small villages of a few hundred pople are overrun by thousands of visitors. All the visitors eat and drink on the ship so they spend little in local shops and restaurants.
Tourists will still go as the fjords are stunningly beautiful. Some images of the Fjords are here
We have been visiting the English Lake District for many years. We used to visit every Easter for years with the children. They have now long since left home.
In October 2017 we were there when the end of storm Ophelia passed through. It felt as if the hotel windows were going to blow out! More recently, in March 2018, we were there again - in the same hotel. We had just had a cold spell but we got a couple of sunny days at the beginning of the week.
The new images of the Lake District are here.
