I have always loved photography, but I really started enjoying it in earnest when I bought my first digital SLR, sometimes referred to as a DSLR

Favourite topics include my garden, including the rose seen here, bought as a 40th birthday present by my brother, and many of the local beach at West Kirby, an area famed for its sunsets
