Home My Photos My Fiction My Dolls Houses



I enjoy travelling, though for various reasons most of my travelling has been done inside Britain.

In Scotland, most of my journeying has been in the highlands. Some of the time I carried a camera; some of he time I didn't.  Some of the time the photos I took were slides, which haven't been transferred to the computer as yet.

This is a small selection of photos from my Scottish album; it gives a small taste of the country as well as reflecting my interest in animals.

I've been to England a few times, but don't have good photos of many of the places I visited.  Most of my visits to Wales were to the Gower Peninsula, where a good friend lives.   

I've only been once to Northern Ireland, and that was just for the weekend.

In the early morning I often see planes going or coming from America.  And one morning I was on one of them...

Just a few photos from my holiday touring California and Arizona.

Over the years I've taken a fair number of photos of animals and birds. Sometimes it's been easy - but often it's been a case of being in the right place at the right time.

Sometimes I think the beauty of Argyll is overshadowed by that of the counties further north - certainly when I was younger I underestimated Argyll's appeal, but I now realise how wrong I was.

When water is completely still, the reflections are fantastic. And especially in early morning and late evening, against the rising or setting sun, silhouettes can be very effective.

I've always been interested in the neolithic world, and Orkney offers a wide sample of neolithic sites, including Skara Brae, one of the finest examples of a neolithic village anywhere - which accounts for its status as a world heritage centre. However, it was not until April of 2004 that I finally visited Mainland Orkney and spent three days visiting a cross-section of its treasures.
