Best Climbing Experience
Anonach Egach in lovely blue sky and white snow in Feb, 2001 and all the foreign climbing holidays. Anything seems better when it's abroad! Ice climbing 5 ft from the road in a gorge in Scotland must be something of a novelty!

About My Photography
Mainly landscape and mountaineering. Done some portrait/wedding before. Spent many years doing 35mm but now moving to digital. Finding digital more fun to play with and cheaper on the long run.
