Welcome to The World of Steam Railway Photography and Wildlife Photography

My web site was created in May 2007 and now contains over 3000 pictures.


Three new Wildlife Galleries featuring a trip to China in October 2016.


One new Wildlife Gallery featuring a trip to Spain in December 2016 and also a new Gallery featuring UK birds in January 2017.


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
