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 through iStock (Getty Images)(www.istockphoto.com). I am slowly but surely putting all my photographs into iStock Library. ........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

It is amazing, but I did look a little silly taking it. Many thanks. Cheers Bob

Quiraing is the name of this area of pinnacles.

This group of photographs were taken on walk from the National Trust carp park at Fell Foot, which is at the bottom of Windermere. Climbing up through the woods to reach the very Scottish Simpson Ground Reservoir, then meeting Sow-How Lane passing through the farm. There is a track that avoids the road down to the car park for Gummer’s How. So I followed this, which does descend a little. Then, taking the well used and well signed posted route to the top of Gummers How. The views were very impressive and I will do this walk again.

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.

This group of photographs were taken on walk from Grasmere heading up to Sour Milk Gill until we reached Easedale Tarn. Descending via Easedale Valley or is it Easedale Dale or just Easedale? As you can see on some of the photographs, the footpath was like a mini glacier in parts, but there was always a route to the side of it. As I didn’t have any crampons, I was just a little more careful. Walking with my brother Ashley and his wife Madeleine, who are both a lot fitter than me, but they did walk at my pace (slow).

Hi Mahdi, Many thanks for your kind comments. All the best to you in Iran. 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.

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