About This Site

I am a Norfolk U.K based amateur photographer with a variety of interests, from searching quiet countryside for birds and butterflies, to the adrenaline rush of mighty dragsters. In this blog I hope to share with you some of my images and experiences.  Check out the HOME page for portfolios of images, use the back arrow to return.  The BLOG page is short accounts.  See the side bar on the right.  Images on the BLOG page are not as sharp as the originals due to compression by wordpress

I have been a nature lover from a very young age.  Living in Norfolk gives me access to some superb sites, however it’s nice to visit other parts of the Country to see and photograph new species.

Drag racing is another of my interests.  I have been going to meetings since 1976 and still love it. The noise, smell, colour, speed and close-up action is addictive.  This is the worlds fastest most powerful motorsport.

I started taking photographs as a small child when I was given a Box Brownie.   Later I had various 110 instamatics before purchasing my first 35mm slr, a mighty Zenith ttl.  I found the cost of film and developing very prohibitive and gave up after a few years.

A few years ago I inherited a Nikon D3100.  Once I had learned how to use it and edit pictures on the pc (not computer literate!) I was hooked.  Now I have the 5300 and love it and hope my images keep on improving.  Again please note that the images on the blog page have lost a touch of sharpness from the originals.  This is due to compression.  Better images are on the HOME page.
