It's that time of year, and the Photography Show at Birmingham's NEC is once more upon us. Although I didn't spend as much money as I did last year, I still managed to bag myself some great deals. Best of all, I got to meet up with a couple of my You Tube heroes, Gavin Hoey and Thomas Heaton. Also captured a few rarther good images.
Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh my. Like a scene from the wizard of Oz! We visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park recently. I had been aware of the Polar Project that they have been running for a few years now, and thought I will go and get some Polar Bear images for my animal portfolio. I have to say both me and Clare, was really impressed. The four bears there, have got a 10 acre reserve that features several lakes, the largest one covers an area of 6,500 square metres, containing over 25.5 million gallons of water.
Me and Clare recently spent a week down in Somerset. This was our final trip away for 2017, so I am glad to say that I managed to get some great shots. Last time I tried to photograph Clifton Suspensions Bridge I couldn't as it had scaffolding up. Also visited Glastonbury Tor, Wells Cathedral and the old lighthouse at Burnham-on-Sea.
Florence, capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, is home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. One of its most iconic sights is the Duomo, a cathedral with a terracotta-tiled dome. The Ponte Vecchio bridge built for traders in medieval times, still houses shops. Now the shops are mostly jewellers, which grabbed Clares attention staight away.
