In 2014 we spent 3 weeks touring England and Scotland. It was a dream come true for me and one I hope to never forget. My in-laws were living in Surrey and thought I might like to see this train bridge. The Ouse Valley Viaduct near the town of Balcombe was built in the mid 1800's and is still in use today. A public hiking trail crosses the field, goes under the bridge and continues up the river valley. I new the shot I wanted before I even got out of the car, this image. I walked to the closes end of the bridge and with my back against the last column I shot down the length of the bridge. I zoomed in to help compress the perspective and shot three different exposures to capture the range of the tone and color. To this day this is one of my all time favorite images
Author: I began my journey in Photography in 1986 when I purchased my first SLR. By 1987 I was working in the photofinishing business and within another year I was photographing professionally doing portraits, wedding and models. From 1987 -1997 I worked in every aspect of the photography world including camera repair. In 1997 began work for one of the worlds largest photofinishing suppliers as a field service engineer and today I still work for this company as an account executive.
My love of photography has spanned decades and as the years have gone by I have adapted and changed with the times. I ultimately settled on Landscape, Wildlife-Nature and Architectural photography and now I sell my work at local art shows and on my website.
