Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. I believe that travel broadens one’s view of the world. Experiencing other cultures, meeting people from other communities and other countries and seeing the beauty, and sometimes ugliness, of the world has helped me understand that all of our lives are at once interconnected and individual. It has made me better appreciate my own home and culture as well as that of the people I’ve met and the lands I’ve seen and I have become a much more tolerant person as a result. Through my photography I seek to document my own personal experiences, to capture scenes and events as I see them and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world I’ve seen. As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world, I hope my own contributions will inspire others to do the same.
Time-lapse of the night sky on December 28th 2014. Taken at Blencathra Field Study Centre in Threlkeld, Cumbria. It was so cold that you can see the camera lens frost over a few times before completely frosting near the end.
