I mainly attempt landscapes in North Yorkshire. I don't go in for much in the way of 'Image Manipulation' (digital or otherwise), I draw the line at ND Grads and then basic cropping, level and curves adjustments initially in Nikon Capture NX2 or, since Dec 2013, Lightroom.
Action wise I mainly photograph Horse Trials (aka Eventing) and Horse Racing, although I've dabbled in motorsport as well.
Initially my photography was almost entirely B&W. Between 1987 (leaving school) and 2005 (first DSLR) my interest in photography faded somewhat and although I took thousands of pictures in that time they were mostly 'snaps' on cheap lab print film.
My main purchases listed below, mainly so I can remember when I bought things;
Mar 2005; Nikon D70 & 18-70 kit (D70 now given away)
Apr 2005; Nikon 70-300 ED (later sold to help fund Sigma 70-200 f2.8)
Jul 2007; Replacement Nikon 18-70 (first one broke)
Jul 2008; Sigma 70-200 f2.8
Feb 2009; Nikon D90
Jan 2010; Nikon 12-24 f4 (used, sold May 2012 to help fund FX wide angle zoom)
Mar 2011; Nikon 24-120 f4 VR
Feb 2012; Nikon D800 (took delivery April)
Jun 2012; Nikon 16-35 f4 VR
Nov 2013; Olympus E-PL3 and small tripod for overnight business trips and the like
Apr 2015; Nikon D7100 (Nikon Factory Refurb) and 3rd party grip
I also had a very cheap used Nikon 18-135 which I used with the D70 as the family snapshot kit, before giving that combination away. Also Manfrotto tripod and head, Lee ND Grads, ND and Polariser and more camera bags than I care to count !
