2015: Me and My Fuji The learning curve is more of a histogram
One early visit was to Queen's house in Greenwich. A much photographed location, so I tried to find some unique vantage points and views that juxtaposed the historic and the modern that is so apparent in London.
The Old naval hospital with the financial district in the background. A view almost directly opposite the one portrayed by Italian master Canaletto in his "Greenwich hospital from the North bank of the Thames".
The QUEENS HOUSE AND FINANCIAL DISTRICT
One of my favourite views of London, as seen from outside the Royal Observatory. So many elements here - the metallic glint of the ultra-modern financial district, the classic architecture and symmetry of the Queens house and clock towers of the Naval hospital, and even a cross made by the paths in the foreground reminiscent of the English flag.
A quiet little secluded outcrop near Nash point in South Wales. I won't give away the exact location - half the joy is finding it for yourself! But sitting there alone listening to the waves crashing onto the beach and watching the sun hit the rock face is just bliss. The nearby lighthouse is well worth a visit too.
Some sheep eagerly await their lunch on the Glenridding fells. After the recent battering of incessant rain, it is so nice to remember that Lakeland can sometimes look like this too!
The wreck of the Helvetia on Rhossilli beach in Gower, with the Wurms head in the background.
Craig goch dam, Elan valley. One of Wales' lesser known gems, this place.
