The lady.

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess with blonde hair and a face ingrained in side me for life. A lady you gave me hope and made me smile when I looked at her, I fell in love with her, never would I meet her but would show my children her and tell her she was special.

She was elegantly dressed in emerald green walking with grace and style gifted to her by her mother and father. The lady in Red would be seen daily the media haunting her from a simple run in the morning to just getting out of her car, hounding her just to get an image to make public all round the world, just to make money.

So the morning came when i was lying in bed when my daughter came in and said the Princess is dead daddy. Don’t be daft i said, she cant be. The rest is history as they say.

Me and my daughter went out that day and bought a Red Rose called Remember and planted it in our garden. I looked after it for years only to move up the country never to see it again. I really hope it is a lovely mature rose bush with beautiful flowers like the Princess was Blooming all over with amazing grace.

I Still think she was done away with, but i know we will never find out the truth so no point going over it again.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
