Recent Travels and Activities

Digital photography tends to make me shoot more. No digital photographer relishes the prospect of spending time at the computer processing the images, but it is a necessary part of the job. As such, many of us have a considerable backlog of material but I have strived to update the website through to Summer 2017. Happily the selects are now posted to the site.

�

Brenda and I made four major excursionsout in 2018. We travelled to Newfoundland for a month in late June and July, camping along the eway. Late last year we participated in the Grand European River Cruise, through Viking and then in December travelled to South America for two weeks in the fabulous Falkland Islands.

�Future Plans

�� Costa Rica in December 2018, Bc Grizzlies this September.

�.The blog has been occasionally updated this winter, where I have now posted 20 small photo essays, travel updates along with some nature photography tips.
