WELCOME TO MY GALLERIES.
Birds are my passion but I find all aspects of the natural world of interest.
Initially most of my images were of birds photographed in Scotland but over the last few years I have had some great birding experiences whilst on family holidays in Europe & beyond which have since generated lots of new gallery material.
Whilst Scotland must rank as one of the most beautiful & scenic countries in the world it has a number of drawbacks for bird photography. The biggest problem is the weather. Dark, gloomy, grey winter skys pose major lighting issues whilst frequent rain & strong winds make long lens work difficult. I spend so much time birding in such conditions that the name Rainbirder seems only appropriate!
Thank you for visiting my galleries. Please feel free to leave comments as you feel appropriate. Advice & critical comments are particularly welcome........ I don't offend easily!!!
