About My Photography
It has been point and shoot with an ok digital camera until now. I have just bought a DSLR though and am hoping the quality of my shots will greatly improve. Have to figure out all the crazy functions first though....

Anything Else We Should Know
2012 was an awful year for me, and I barely climbed. Whooping cough and the long term cough that developed because of it has meant a year of little sleep or exercise. Hopefully things will get back on track in 2013!

In 2010 I was away travelling and spent some time climbing in Oz where I was sampling the delights of amazing climbing areas such as the Grampians, Arapiles, Mount Buffalo, Frog Buttress and the Blue Mountains. Was totally amazing and I would love to go back.

My heart belongs in Scotland though and the quality and variety of the outdoors here, combined with our access rights, means the experience is second to none.
