I have several passions but photography has become a particularly dominant one, and it slots in conveniently around the others such as caving, Munro-bagging and bird watching, and allows me to share my experiences with others. I have created Original Take as an showcase for the images that I'm particularly proud of.

These photos currently span a broad variety of subjects especially due to my 365 project (see my blog) but the areas in particular that interest me are macro insect photography, astronomical photography and underground photography - I am still experimenting with the latter two and the galleries for these will pad out over time.

The encaustic paintings are something I have done infrequently for years, they make interesting additions to a wall if you have a small gap to fill.
