In a nutshell, I served in Merseyside Police for over 30 years and retired in 1996, built a sailing boat and with my wife set sail and 'almost' circumnavigated the globe. I've now swallowed the anchor! I have been a member of the Society since 2012. I joined the committee after three years and I'm now Webmaster.
My photographic interests are mainly landscape, but I love to try different disciplines e.g. macro, architecture and wildlife. Like so many members, I enjoy hiking in this beautiful area and find it combines so well with my photo hobby.
Other interests include music, archery, sailing and travel - which in recent years has involved caravaning.
