Ballerina on a bridge

I was in Budapest this weekend, it is an amazingly artistic city, the light was beautiful, energy and life filled the air. Crossing a bridge across the Danube, I saw a young ballerina preparing herself, for what dance I do not know. I was just happy to capture her in a moment.

Feeling Free

There was a local Ski and Snowboard jumping competition, couldn’t resist taking my camera 🙂 Must be a wonderful feeling to be able to jump like this. On a different note, my blog has just hit the milestone of having 4000 followers. Thank you all so much, I never imagined my blog would ever have so much interest. You all inspire me to keep this blog going. Thank you 🙂

Just returned from the Middle East

After 30 hours of no sleep I’m finally back in Europe. Over the next couple of weeks I have a lot to write about regarding Syria and the Middle East in general. 2015 will be an interesting year. However, it wasn’t all work as these two photos I took in Al Aqaba and Petra show. Watch this space, lots coming.

Should have some interesting news from the Middle East in the New Year. In the meantime today was about relaxing and switching off for a few hours. I hope you like this photograph I took today at the Citadel in Amman Jordan.

An apology and a photo.

First the apology. I have had a huge amount going on recently and simply haven’t had the time to write recently. I will rectify this in the new year. All being well I will be back in the Middle East over the Christmas period to get a better picture of what is going on in the region.

Added to that I have been asked by a major Chinese newspaper to help with a feature article they want to do for the end of the year. No, the article isn’t about me before anybody asks. So all being well I will have lots to write about in the new year, saying that, I might be able to post something before but I can’t promise.

Now the photo. I was out for a walk this morning. The air was cold but the sun was peaking through the cloud. In the end it turned out to be a beautiful day. As I was getting into position for the photo below, a small owl suddenly took flight in front of me. It had been sitting in the long grass right in front of me. There was no time to get a decent shot of the owl but that moment put a big smile on my face. I hope you like the photo, I love the atmosphere of this image.
