Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

That's outrageous. I would be apoplectic to find an image of mine on Party Political Propoganda particularly at the blue end of the spectrum:0 I've signed and now back to the real world of Glastonbury. Nice shot Doug. I hope you dived in to the middle of the circle for the next one :)

Plagiarism is rampant everywhere Doug. Long ago I found three of my food - photographs in a leading regional magazine in their recipe section!!!
