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.

Hello everyone. Usually I tell you when I am going away but this time I am telling you I have come back. I had good wifi last week so you didn't even know I was on holiday did you? Apart from the fact I didn't upload anything new last week it was just like I was here. :hug:
I spent last week in Dumfries & Galloway which is the area of South West Scotland. I went there for something different and that is what I got. An area loaded with history and with some beautiful landscape but not quite what I am used to. Not quite the huge views I love on Skye or in the Highlands but with their own beauty for sure. As the rest of the UK had a heat wave............I didn't. Weather was a challenge all week. Initially jut because if was a dull flat grey which gave way to some non stop rain after a couple of days. Thursday was a glorious bright and sunny day but with no pretty sunset or dawn. Thunder storms were threatened for Friday but never really appeared but the wind was very strong. Far too strong to climb where I had gone. So, a challenging week which forced me to look at other options so I found myself at ruined castles and abbeys and at ancient chambered cairns. I found it frustrating at first but I really settled into the week and was sad to come away. The lesson for me was to deal with what I had and not dream of what I did not have. I played with my converted Nikon D70s too so there will be some b/w infrared from this week as well as some of my normal stuff. I will start uploading soon. :hug: 

So that week is over and it is back to work for me tomorrow. I always find my first week back very hard. I just want to be back out there with my camera. Well, that is the compromise I guess. I work so that I can play. I just like to make sure I play as much as I can :D

Since my last journal I have found some new lovely people here. Some have found me and some of them I have found. This really is somewhere I love to be. I know there are issues that upset people and sometimes people have enough of it but for me it is all about the people. I could leave dA as could anyone. I could just put my pictures somewhere else but hey, that would mean leaving all of you behind. That is not something I would want to consider. Each and everyone of you make my day at some time or another. You make me smile. You make me sing. (Really) You make me want to get better at photography and at being me. I love giving my support where I can and commenting whenever I can. I love seeing your pictures and reading your words. I love all of it and I will never take it for granted. :heart: I think I am a better person that I was before I joined dA. I know I am a better photographer. I have you to thank for both of those things. So thank you all. :hug:

And now, as a small way of showing my thanks, take a look at some of my recent favourites in no particular order and from beginners to experts. Please give them all your support if you can. :hug:
