All pictures are taken with a Nikon D80 and with either a Nikkor 50mm/1.4, a Sigma 80mm Macro or a Nikkor 28-300mm. Locations are mainly Pembrokeshire, Wales and around the Cotswolds/England, some on other travels.

I normally edit my images afterwards by adjusting contrast, size, colours and brightness creating increasingly more abstract compositions.

Other interests of mine are close-ups, macro-photography and looking at textures and light. Over the last year, I’ve moved towards ‘upcycling’ fairly standard land- and seascape shots by using mirror or fragmentation techniques.

One thought on “ABOUT

  1. So Bertram, I guess you have just become one of The Spikey’s, that small clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70′s, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear from you, serious.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, and hope you have a great day…
