I love being out in nature and always have. Such times have provided me with wonderful experiences of sharing moments with wild creatures, enjoying the vastness, beauty and abundance of the natural world. These times ‘fill me up’: they nourish my soul. When I sit drinking in a beautiful landscape, or seascape, I am overwhelmed by a feeling of utter contentment, knowing that I lack nothing, that nothing else is needed; and these joys are free! Life is beautiful.

My photographs come out of my love and gratitude for this beautiful world, and my desire to capture something of my experiences and share them with others.

Having spent the first fifty years of my life in towns, I moved to rural West Wales in March 2009. I feel I have stumbled on a well-kept secret; certainly I had no inkling of its stunning scenery before my first visit in the autumn of 2008.
