End Of The Rainbow

End Of The Rainbow Title: End Of The Rainbow
Location: Margaretting, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF-S
Notes: Driving home form work on evening, I noticed the deeply forbidding clouds just as the sun came out and illuminated the golden yellow field of rape. The rainbow arced into the sky, and I had to shelter under an enormous umbrella to take my picture.

High Altitude

High Altitude Title: High Altitude
Location: Arctic Circle, Caihnavarri, Norway
Camera: Praktica MTL5B / Auto Rosley 38-95mm f/3.5
Film: Kodak Gold 200
Notes: This image evokes wonderful memories of a fantastic holiday I had in Arctic Sweden and Norway in April 2003 – mushing a team of dogs with a sledge. There were six of us on the tour in total, and we each had our own team of dogs to look after to pull our equipment. We made it all the way to the high hills on the Swedish/Norwegian border. Having camped overnight at the mountain hut at Caihnavaggehytta, we set off for a quick tour around Caihnavarri before heading back down the valley and into Sweden. The scenery was fabulous and the experience was unforgettable.

Pienza Hillside

Pienza Hillside Title: Pienza Hillside
Location: Pienza, Tuscany
Camera: Canon EOS 50E / Canon 100-300mm USM
Film: Kodakchrome 200
Notes: I spent a blisteringly hot week in Tuscany visiting a friend who was studying in Siena in June 2001. We hired a car and drove about to some of the remote towns and villages. These few lonely trees stood out on top of the hillside ridge and made a great addition to the scene. Strong lighting and a polarising filter helped to saturate the colours.
