My Blog So Far.

Can I say thank you to everyone who has visited my site read my stories and veiwed my images. I really need to explain the reason behind my doing what I do.

My images of wildlife lead me here, i think this was my saviour. When I say that, I have to tell you of my struggle dealing with mental thoughts memories of my early life that stay with me and haunt me, my parents and family that won’t go away,

So my images led me here, and quickly I learned that I was relating to Alcohol Childhood and other things that had nothing to do with photography.

So I started writing about my childhood and can I say I am very sorry if I upset anyone, I wanted my story to be told as it was from my heart with no stone unturned. By writing I am releasing my burden the one I have carried with me for so long.

Not for Sympathy not for a tear or sadness just an understanding from you the reader. It’s not all bad as you have seen there is humour funny stories and love and happiness. That’s been my life so by telling you of my life lift s heavy weight off my shoulders, I have felt a different person since opening up to the world of my upbringing and hopefully have helped others with there trapped thoughts.

Again I am sorry if I have offended anyone or upset anyone in anyway.

Ron. More to come.

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.
