I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

Exploring the surface of Lake Superior

The surface of the lake is almost completely solid at the moment. It was the
strangest experience, walking among frozen waves with nothing but ice as far
as you could see. I imagine the polar regions of the planet feel the same
way. Totally desolate, empty, and beautiful.

Yes, that's precisely how they feel. It's what makes them so beautiful.

This is the most amazing series. I love the way you've used the light and shadow.

Aww, thank you! This experience has really made me want to see the polar regions, and I now know how those poor penguins feel - it was proper cold.

Lovely set. How far out did you venture?

Only a few hundred meters from the shore, although it was quite hard to tell where that was. It was difficult terrain to cover without snowshoes. At places the snow was nearly up to my waist and it was very slippery with ice.

In retrospect it was possibly quite an unsafe thing to do. If the ice had given way it would be hard to find someone in such uneven terrain.

Wowza, that's spectacular!

It's official: Crickson can walk on water...

But, it's my ambition to walk on custard.
