It is some time since I added anything to the website. My wife passed away unexpectedly some months ago and I have not had the inclination to do much since then.

Most recently I have been travelling. I have added some landscapes rom myjourney from the Lofoten Islands to Bergen on the west coast of Norway.
The flowers were photographed at the Botanic Garden in Tromso. One of the finest Arctic/Alpine gardens anywhwere
