Welcome to my web gallery. It gives a flavour of my nature photography work in a diary format. This blog will be updated regularly with new pictures. All photos are taken 'in the wild', with love and respect for nature.

Weather changes are often announced by interesting cloud patterns in the sky. Yesterday a transition set in to colder weather with easterlies. Early in the morning the sky above my local patch was dotted with altocumulus streaks. I choose a more or less symmetrical composition with the horizon in the middle to emphasize the open space and to create a clear vanishing point. In order to create a more balanced exposure I manoeuvred the rising sun behind a little tree and used a neutral density hard gradient filter of 2 stops.

Nature photography is my passion! The diversity of nature keeps inspiring me. I always look for opportunities to capture the beauty of the world we live in.
I am 52 years old, happily married to Judith.
