This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race"
........ H G Wells

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better"
........ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Luck favours the prepared mind"
........ Louis Pasteur

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

Dhamaka says:

Like the fern ... but then I like ferns.

Dhamaka says:

thank you and me too

OJ says:

Some lovely colours - I love the first and last particularly. The green of the tree-trunk is something I really look out for in winter.

Why so hard on yourself? Were you doing this as a professional assignment?

27th Jan 2008, 23:06

Dhamaka says:

thank you OJ

no I wasn't, although I had a couple of ideas that might fly retrospectively. I just find it so frustrating

27th Jan 2008, 23:09

OJ says:

Well consider yourself to have received a litle "stop being so hard on yourself" from me.

And thanks for the view in the last one. I'd have stopped there a moment too.

Dhamaka says:

that's a lovely thing to say. I hope to go back and see it through different seasons. Thank you for the message too

Caine says:

Great series! 1st, 4th and 7th for me. So nice to see that beautiful, lush green and running water.

These are great, D. I love Exmoor, it's a beautiful part of the country. 12 good shots out of 60 is a pretty good average in my book.

Dhamaka says:

Caine and SuziQ - thank you. I love those mossy tree trunks

Mandy - thank you but there you have it. You see the light was golden with a hint of salmon pink. The quality of light was spectacularly gorgeous and I'm told it's like that most of the time!

Jigalong - thank you and welcome back!

Hari - thank you, but I couldn't manage the exposure (as you can see from a couple of these)

Carpe - the daffodils were up and it felt like spring

Lovely part of the world, and I think your pictures do it justice

midlife says:

The picture on the bottom looks unreal. It would be great to zoom in and see more of the bottom picture close up.

30th Jan 2008, 03:13

Dhamaka says:

Jane Doe - thank you!

Midlife - thank you. It was just as cold and bright as it looks, I assure you. If I have the time I'll see what I can do
