After a long run of work it was nice to grab a few days in Portugal. The coastline is dramatic and finding access down some of the cliffs is often impossible. Therefore I was very pleased when I discovered this beautiful beach with its spectacular rock formations deserted and with easy access.

Horst P Horst
A new experience for me yesterday. I went to see the Horst exhibition at The V&A. The museum has gathered together a large selection of his work from the 1930′s to the 1980′s. In a section on Platinum Paladium prints was a small version of a large still life print I purchased almost 20 years ago. Titled Wine Bottles and Fruit. shot in New York in 1949. I have edition no. 2/10. (I’ve always assumed that Horst retained print no. 1 for his archive)
Viewing Horst’s prints you are reminded of the beautiful quality Silver Gelatin and Platinum prints produce.
The exhibition runs until January 2015.

Isle of Skye.
I find it hard to imagine a more impressive view in the UK. For the lucky handful of people who live in Elgol on the isle of Skye this is their daily view. From the small pebble beach or from the out crop of rock seen in the foreground looking North west you have this amazing view to the Cuillen Mountains. I weighted over an hour for the clouds to be in the right position and the sun to be just below them before dipping behind the horizon.

All New Website
At last my new website has gone live. A huge thank you to Mark and Terry @ IWD Media Solutions for all the work they have put into my site, and their patience in allowing my endless adjustments.
I’m really pleased with the design and feel of the site, but if you have any comments please let me know.
