Cockington Village, Devon 27 July 2018

Having never been to Cockington Village, Devon I decided to join members of Exeter Camera Club on one of their summer outings in order to take some images of the place. A very pleasant place and fortunately the weather was ok as well.


A Trip to the Baltic - 30 June to 12 July

I took a cruise to the Baltic visiting Kiel Canal, Travemünde, Ronne, St Peterburg, Tallinn, Stockholm Archipelago, Stockholm, Visby Sweden and created a couple of PDF documents one of them I called Mystery Cruise which gives a glimpse of the whole trip and the other just shows some of the images I obtained from the shows that were produced.

Creative - April 2018

A trip to Lympstone and Topsham with Steve Le Prevost who is a master in the art of creativity gave me the inspiration to create my own "creative" images and below are my results.



Still Life - April 2018

I have expanded on a project that I was working on with club members to put together a panel of images for a battle against other clubs in the Devon area . We produced images of computer motherboards and inserted people into them to create an impression of little people working inside a computer. Because it was great fun doing this project I decided to create my own panel which is below.

Working On Updates


Great Train Journey to Switzerland - 20 to 28 January 2018

The trip was from St Pancras Station, London to Interlaken Switzerland stopping off at Cologne for 1 night. We arrived in Interlaken with very little snow but fortunately the main trips were up into the mountains where there was plenty of snow. The Jungfrau Railway was fantastic which is Europe's highest railway at reaching the summit of the Jungfrau Mountain at 11,333 ft (3,454m). The other trip up into the mountains was going on Cable Cars up the Schilthorn. The views were magnificent from both mountains. The rest of the trip was visiting the surrounding areas of Interlaken.
