My German pointer Otto, who is now 11. The picture was taken on a hiking holiday in Cumbria and is very unusual, as it is one of only a few times he has willingly gone for a paddle (he hates getting his feet wet!).
I took this picture two years ago while out on a walk behind my house. This is one of my favourite photos. For me, it captures the essence of long summer holidays at home in Devon. Every day I would wander around the surrounding fields and woodland with my dogs and friends.
This here is our new black Labrador puppy Roper. We got him in September last year and hope he will grow up to be a superb working dog! At the moment he still enjoys burying my shoes in the garden…!
When the ‘Beast from the East’ hit the country last year, my family and I went to Dartmoor, which is very close to where I live. This shot of Saddle Tor was taken just before it started to snow very heavily. When the weather is like this, having a pick-up truck makes all the difference!
This was taken last year on a holiday in the Brecon Beacons. I don’t think the photo does the sight justice – the view was breathtaking! At the Llanddeusant Red Kite Feeding Station you can watch hundreds of wild red kites swoop down to retrieve food provided by the Welsh Kite Trust. Obviously, trying to photograph that was a challenge, so I urge you to go and visit in person.
A close-up of an everyday item for me, but a challenging image for others…!
I took this photo during a trip to the Highlands with my family. We were so lucky to spot these seals basking in the sun. While seals are also common where I live, it was nice to see wildlife up close. I always enjoy watching seals. They’re usually really friendly and so inquisitive.
