For the past few years I have spent my spare time travelling to different parts of the UK to try to get to know my own country and its people better. Photography is my passion. I hope my pictures tell the story I want to tell.

Please respect my right to my images. If you want to use them for any reason please contact me first and ask me. Otherwise I retain all copyright to all of my work.

Please fave as many pictures as you like. I appreciate all of them. What I love is comments. Please leave comments. I will always reply to comments.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” Don McCullin

“I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it’s got lots of accounting going on in it–stones and buildings and trees and air – but that’s not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.” – Joel Meyerowitz

In the face of a barrage of depressing news stories from my own country and around the world I find myself wanting peace and remoteness more and more. When I go away on my little photographic trips I am in my own little bubble. I can devote all my time to searching out the beauty that nature has to offer me. I get away from work, home, stress and people. It is my escape. I breathe clean air, I smell the flowers, I lose myself utterly in the glory of being alive. I can hardly begin to explain what this gives me on a personal level. I am sure it keeps me sane in this crazy world though. When I am at home my pictures give me that connection to the feeling I had when I took the picture. The image, itself is only the capture of a split second (or sometimes a few seconds) in time but it brings back the memory to me of standing in that place, feeling the wind, jacket buttoned against the cold, wiping rain from the lens, shielding the camera from the sun (on rare occasions :lol: ), the feeling of happiness I had in that moment. This is something of what I try to convey in my pictures. I hope, with all my heart, that when you look at my landscapes you can feel just a bit of the magic I was feeling, the awe I was held in, the rapture. My aim is always to do more than just take a picture. I really want it to be magical. I want it to have mood, texture, feeling, emotion and I want it to hold you. The following two quotes are on my profile and I think the photographers say it better than I am managing to do. 

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” Don McCullin

“I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it’s got lots of accounting going on in it–stones and buildings and trees and air – but that’s not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.” – Joel Meyerowitz 

If I am managing to do any of this, even on a small level then I will be happy. I will keep trying to do this and hope to succeed. 

In a week's time I am going on a trip I have long wanted to make. I am going to Iceland. It will only be a short trip so I am hoping for weather I can deal with and I am hoping to see some of the magic of that most beautiful of countries. I am only there for four days so they will be long and full of mystery and discovery. I hope to capture a little of what it has to offer and I will be back to share it with you. 

OK. Now to feature some of your pictures. As always I have been collecting your works and loving seeing what you have been creating. I thank you all for the friendship and love you show to me. It really does mean so much to me. Being here among you wonderful people is not something I ever take for granted. I relish every moment I spend in your company and would love to have dinner and/or drinks and/or climb a mountain with you. Thank you for being there for me whenever I need you. :heart: 
Here we go then. A selection from the last few weeks of art from you......you amazing, lovely people :heart: :heart:
Please take the time to fav or comment if you see something you like. I'm sure the artist would love to hear from you.

Hi Quintin 
Im actually in Scotland on a vacation at the moment but when I get home next week I'd be happy to chat with you if you would like. 
Just drop me a note so I have it there to reply too. 
The best advice I ever heard was from a landscape photographer who said you have to get up and get out there. Pretty sound advice :lol:
Anyway, I'll be back in a few days.
