Chester Zoo is my favorite zoo. Its recently gone through a bit of a transition with the addition of the Islands zone, but its all for the better. From a photographers view, its so great to be able to get images of these fantastic animals. Without having to photograph through wired cages.
We recently spent a couple of days in Chester, initially travelling up there to visit the Zoo, but we also got to explore the cathedral. The cathedral has amazing architecture and history as you can see I managed to get some stunning images.
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.
