Best of 2017
These photos represent what I think of as the best of my output in the last year. Looking back, it seems that this blog has been inactive for at least that long. The fact is, life has been rather busy, not least because we had a son in April. That’s not to say I haven’t been taking photos, just that they’ve been rather different…you couldn’t say that many of these relate to the wildness of the rest of this gallery, but reflect the change in my lifestyle, indeed a good number of these new photos come from my garden. They also represent a little more experimentation, trying a new lens (the other one fell from a Land Rover on holiday in Scotland), and having a go at the photography competition site Gurushots, so there are some more macro shots, and some with specific subjects relating to a challenge title. Gurushots has become rather too big for me now, so I’m not doing much at the moment, but it has been useful to test myself against other photographers and try some new styles, with some surprising results. Anyway, I hope these new photos have been of interest, and there may be more to come that go back a little further, watch this space. As for the year to come, I’m looking forward to getting my family out into the mountains and wilder places and capturing some great new material to publish here. Our first family walk was this past weekend, visiting the spectacular falls on the Nedd Fechan in Waterfalls Country, so there should at least be something to show when I get the film developed. I think going forward that will be the new purpose of this blog, rather than writing about existing photos and the subjects they depict.
These are all available to buy, and soon there will be a new way of ordering (see the previous post about Photobox closing their Pro Galleries), although it will take me a bit of working out to perfect it…you may have to bear with me. In the mean time, drop me a line using the contact form, and we’ll work something out. At present I don’t have anything listed on eBay, but hopefully that won’t be for long.
