Welcome to The World of Steam Railway Photography and Wildlife Photography

My web site was created in May 2007 and now contains over 2600 pictures.

Three new Wildlife Galleries features a visit to Zimbabwe during late September and early October2015.

One new Wildlife Gallery features a visit to Nairobi National Park in Kenya on the 11th and 12th October 2015.

One new Railway Gallery has been added featuring a charter on the Severn Valley Railway on the 16th November with 7820 Dinmore Manor.

I have split the UK Steam section into Southern, Western and Other.

This web site update is dedicated to a very close friend, Trevor Ford, who was instrumental in introducing me to the world of birds and birding. We spent many hours together in many different parts of the world over a period of 35 years. Mutual interests were squash, beer, sport, steam trains and of course wildlife. He spent a lifetime travelling the world increasing his life list to over 6000 species and never took pictures until the last few years where not only did he take the pictures but also used Photoshop to enhance the pictures and create slide-shows.

Trevor RIP
