To go to my shop, Rainbow Frames,where I have a vast selection of Photo Frames (click the link Ѻ to the right of my photograph). Photographs are for sale £25 for personal or £50 for business, phone me on 07814-907104. ........About me:---- I have been taking photographs since 1976 (Yes,I'm old) and still get pleasure from some of my results. I started with a Zenith EM, then a Pentax SP500. Then a upgrade to a Minolta 7000, followed by 9000, 7Xi. I then spent a lot on a Bronica SQAi with 3 lenses. I then had a few years off using a Minox. Returning when digital photography became available. Starting firstly with an Olympus 2mb compact. Then I bought a Panasonic Lumix superzoom before changing to an Olympus 2/3rds format. Then changing to a Nikon D90, which is an excellent camera and had a snap focus option. Upgrading again in 2013 to a Nikon D7100 which is extremely capable and encourages me to try different things and improve. I still have my Sigma 10-20 and a 50-300 Macro lenses. I still use the Nikon GPS to log each photograph as I take it, which helps when uploading images. I recently bought a 10-17mm Tokina Fisheye lens (March 2014) which you can expect this to be used often, initially. I also use my Nikon P6000 (with GPS) which is an amazing little camera.I tend to take this on days when its either the weather is uninspiring or I've already saturated the area. I also enjoy birdwatching and hill walking, these mix nicely with my photography. I run a internet shop (http//stores.ebay.co.uk/Rainbow-Frames) selling photo-frames and cufflinks, compacts & pill boxes. I used to have a High Street shop in Stone which I sold similar items including my photographs and I offered a bespoke Picture Framing Service. Many thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the photographs. Cheers Bob

This group of photographs were taken on a walk with my brother Barry and two sisters Janet & Heather. We were staying at the fantastic accommodation of Bramblebank (link to the house :- Google

We decided to go to Cartmel and visit the Priory and then head up onto the Hampsfell to enjoy the surrounding views from the superb viewpoint. This has a compass that you point a any direction, then look at the angle, then consulting the information board, you can find out what it is your are looking at. It could do with a little tender love and care. Afterwards we drove to Grange-over-Sands and walked to see if we could visit Holme Island. We couldn't as it was private. For a link to the Wikipedia page on Cartmel try the following link:- Google


Taken on my Nikon D7100 with GPS using my 10-17mm Tokina Fish-Eye, Sigma 10-20mm Wide Angle or Nikon 28-140mm DX lenses. I also use my Nikon SB-910 Flash when required.

Hi Gully, It is a good pub and one I often call in for a coffee whilst on a regular walk.Cheers Bob

OK Bob, anytime....and i'll drop you a mail

These photographs were taken on a walk Ilam Hall National Trust Caravan Site. I walked up to Castern Hall. Google Then along the Edge, dropping down into the Manifold Valley before returning via Throwley Hall . Click to see more info on Throwley Hall Google I had a good sighting of a Hobby on Castern Edge. Great to see, but not if you are a Dragon Fly or a small bird.

Castern Hall information from Wikipedia, thank you.

Taken on my Nikon P6000 with GPS, sometimes using my wide angle adapter.

One of two similar shots, but the photographers among you will notice a slightly different speed & focal length.
