Spiritual Home
Thaken at Irton church, just outside of holmrook, Cumbria. The mountain tops to the left are the Wasdale valley, with Great Gable taking pride of place centre stage. Never been to this location before but I will return, many photographic opporunities abound. This is 3 shots all bracketed by 2 stops either way. Merged in Photomatrix pro, then stitched in Auto Giga Pano, finished in Nik colorefex.

Thank you so much for viewing my work.

Below are the artists whose work has inspired me since my last journal entry. The selections made by no means cover everyone that deserves to be here. In time many many more will follow, as with each passing week I discover so many more talented creative people on here, that one journal entry could never do them all justice. So many of you out there are producing work that leaves me in awe, and it would be unfair of me not to acknowledge the creators of work that has caught my eye and imagination.

I would encourage you all to visit the pages of these fine artists, there is much to learn and so much to be in awe of. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this journal, I hope you gain some inspiration not from the journal, but from the works contained within it.
Simon

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom
I am a amateur photographer who became interested in predominanly early morning landscape photography when I bought my first canon eos digital camera. At the time I lived in the Lake District in England, and that inspired my interest in landscape photography. I then lived in New Zealand in an area where I took mostly early morning misty shots. After 6 Years though the lakes of Cumbria drew me back. I am very keen to engage with other serious photographers, all be it I am an amateur, to learn and develop my skills.

I would also like to thank my wife, Dawn, whose encouragement and support motivates me to get better each day as a photographer.
TO EVERYONE THAT VISITS MY PAGE, FAVOURITES WORK, PLACES A WATCH, A LLAMA BADGE OR COMMENT, I THANK EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU. SADLY I AM NO LONGER IN A POSITION TO ANSWER YOU ALL INDIVIDUALLY, SOMETHING I ALWAYS PRIDED MYSELF FOR. I RECIEVE A HIGH NUMBER MOST DAYS AND CANNOT DEVOTE THE INCREASING TIME REQUIRED TO DO SO, DUE TO NUMEROUS PERSONAL AND WORK COMMITMENTS. PLEASE DO NOT PERCIEVE IT AS IGNORANCE AS TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO VISIT MY PAGE AND I HOPE YOU FIND SOMETHING INTERESTING AND THAT YOU ENJOY.

Current Residence:West Cumbria, United Kingdom
Favourite photographer: Marti Friedlander,Yuan Li, Andris Apse, Ansel Adams

You've taken so many beautiful photos, Simon.  I could collect your entire gallery, so I think I'll just have to come visit your page every now again instead.

Simon, I'm curious as to whether you have taken any photographs which can be used as stock. If so I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction but if you don't want your photographs to be used by others I understand.
Thank you.

Hi Marni
I don't have any as stock shots I,m afraid. I have let others use my work to paint from etc or to do manipulation etc on a purely personal project for no financial gain to be shown on da etc. send me a note indicating what you have in mind if you would like me to consider it.

Thank you, at the moment I don't have anything specific in mind as it was more of a general enquiry. I'll certainly remember what you've said. :)
