My travel photography portfolio site had been looking a little bit dated, so I’ve gone ahead and updated the look of it and added a whole bunch of new content as well. Please have a visit and let me know what you think!

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to visit two of Portugal’s cities, Lisbon and Porto (with a side trip to the village of Sintra). I’ve now published a gallery of my photos from the trip and you can see them here.

Both cities are worth a visit with sites and culture abounding in each. I could have spent a day inside Lisbon’s wonderful monastery, or another just exploring the hilly streets below the castle. In Porto, when the sun shone, there might have been nothing better than to sit by the river and gaze up at that captivating bridge.

I would have hoped for better weather for my day trip to Sintra, but you can’t win them all. I had to content myself with indoor shots of that strange village’s eclectic sites. The fog when I got to the Palace of Pena made for rubbish photography: “Here’s a shot of a castle. No really, I promise, there’a castle in there somewhere!” I’ve spared you the flat white shots.

Instead, enjoy some of the sights Portugal’s cities have to offer.

I know a lot of people have been pretending 2016 didn’t happen and that includes me. I just skipped that year. Forget about it. That means no blog posts were necessary. But it’s a new year, so I’ll try to be at least somewhat more active here and to get that started, I’d like to […]

I know a lot of people have been pretending 2016 didn’t happen and that includes me. I just skipped that year. Forget about it. That means no blog posts were necessary.

But it’s a new year, so I’ll try to be at least somewhat more active here and to get that started, I’d like to present you with a batch of photos from Copenhagen. These images have languished unseen for too long on my hard drive, so have a look and enjoy. Click the photo below to see more.

There’s little better than being able to wake up, walk outside and see a view like this. That’s just what you can do if you’re staying in Tadapani, Nepal whilst hiking the Ghorepani Loop.

Here, fellow lodgers at the local guesthouses have woken early to watch the first rays of the sunrise hit Mount Machhapuchchhre also know as Fish Tail for its distinctive double-summit shape.

Photo of the Day

There comes a point on the Everest trail when you find yourself incapable of properly watching your step because of the views. The mountains that were already towering above you somehow find a way to become ever more dramatic and iconic. Their permanently snowy peaks inspire awe and before too long, you have to stop not just because the altitude has made you breathless, but the view demands that you pause to appreciate it.

Here is one such view as Lhotse, the fourth tallest mountain in the world, rises behind a stupa built as a memorial to Tenzing Norgay above Namche Bazaar.

Photo of the Day It’s been almost a year since I visited Nepal.

It’s been almost a year since I visited Nepal. That’s far too long for me to have a cache of unshared photos from that wonderful country, so I’ll try to rectify that over the next little while.

The highlight of the trip was standing with the Himalayas towering overhead. For this photo, I woke before dawn and hiked up from Namche Bazaar to a lookout point where I could watch the clouds roll up from the valley below. About a minute after taking this photo, I was enveloped in grey and couldn’t see a thing.

2016 approaches and you’re going to to need some way to remind yourself not to scribble the wrong date on your cheques (if you still write cheques). What better way to do it than with some lovely images from Scotland? A few of my photos are featured in two of the Scottish Field Calendars for […]

2016 approaches and you’re going to to need some way to remind yourself not to scribble the wrong date on your cheques (if you still write cheques). What better way to do it than with some lovely images from Scotland?

A few of my photos are featured in two of the Scottish Field Calendars for 2016 including my image of Dunvegan Castle on the cover of the mini version of the calendar. You can preview/buy the mini calendar here and the regular one here. Below, you’ll find the images they’ve used.

And there are plenty more of my images of Scotland here and here.

Another long-overdue collection of images is finally live on my site. Please take a moment to browse my photos of Jordan here. Though a not insubstantial time has passed since my visit, the memories are as vivid as could be. Here’s just a quick sample: Hiking in Petra, hitchhiking with some random moustached man whose […]

Another long-overdue collection of images is finally live on my site. Please take a moment to browse my photos of Jordan here.

Though a not insubstantial time has passed since my visit, the memories are as vivid as could be. Here’s just a quick sample: Hiking in Petra, hitchhiking with some random moustached man whose car interior was totally and completely wrapped in cling film and who smelled like candy, floating in the Dead Sea, leaping from ledges into sand dunes and racing down them like a kid, getting pelted in the back with a stone by some seven year old girl (wtf!), getting chased by camels, balancing precariously on giant natural arches, walking in Moses’ footsteps, exploring medieval castles and forts, having an ibex steal a potato from us, eating some pretty great food, listening to the haunting, synchronised call to prayer alone on a hilltop beneath a roman ruin in Amman, rescuing a donkey from a cliff, etc..

There are plenty more memories to be shared in photo form, so please visit the gallery.
