Photography 101: Connect

This bridge connects two parts of the site at Petra and is the only feasible way of reaching some of the largest rock carvings.

Madame, who has a fear of heights, was not happy having to cross over this rather ramshackle affair, especially with the shadow pointing to the bottom of the fifty-foot deep ravine that it spans.

Photography 101: Solitude

This image was taken in Abu Dhabi and is the exterior of the building in which I used to work. Luckily, I wasn’t a window-cleaner like this poor guy, suspended about 200 feet above the ground with an awful lot of windows to clean. I can imagine he felt rather alone.

Photography 101: Bliss

When we bought Brokedown Palace almost ten years ago, we were also fortunate enough to acquire a few acres of attached agricultural land. This picture is of the field directly behind the house.

Just to be able to look out on a sunny day at this tranquil, unspoiled scene, with no sound but the birds, certainly counts as `bliss’ as far as I’m concerned.

Photography 101: Water

Where there’s water, there’s a good chance of a reflection – nature’s buy-one-get-one-free.

Today, an image from my visit earlier this year to Monet’s Garden.
