About me:

A keen amateur landscape photographer and sailor. Many of the photographs have been taken locally on the daily walks with my english springer spaniel, Laddie or from my small sailboat Orion. Usually I am travelling light, either with a Canon Powershot G10, a Canon Powershot A590IS or with a Pentax K-X
