About My Photography
No comment, apart from the fact that after years of using medium and large format film I find the latest advances in digital photography very exciting, and very liberating for photography in general.

Anything Else We Should Know
I can't stand bigotry and narrow-mindedness (i.e. any kind of brainwashing, in politics, the arts, or science).
Now, in 2016, I feel that the UK's vote for Brexit and the US election of Trump for President represent the most serious double threat to life as we know it in Western society – civilised, tolerant and friendly – that I've seen in my lifetime.
Feb 2018. Since I wrote the above, the effects of the disastrous referendum have gone from bad to worse, splitting the country up and down as Leavers foment hatred and further division. Unfortunately, this phenomenon has spilled over to the once-excellent UKC forums, so that they are now more or less dominated by extremists (with the exception of three or four brave voices) – some of the worst culprits appearing not to be climbers at all.
Aug 2018. Happy to see that my comment above is no longer correct. The forums now seem much more balanced and are returning to their former excellence.
