One of my most favourite hobbies is to take pictures.  I have been doing this since the early 1980's and have taught myself how to use all sorts of different cameras and techniques.  It is one hobby that I can do even with rheumatoid arthritis, although I tend to do less travel and wildlife work as time moves on.

Below is just one example of one of my shots - it is actually 15 pictures put together as a panoramic high dynamic range image.

Eyafjallajokull, Iceland, 2012


I have an album that I use as my photography portfolio.  This album has some of the pictures that I consider as my favourites:

Below are just a few of the shots from my portfolio:

If you have any comments on the photos (i.e. you like them, hate them, or want to know why I would ever take pictures like these...) please feel free to comment. 


I have recently been doing a number of High Dynamic Range photos (HDR). The link below takes you to some of my HDR images:

This folder has pictures from the Iceland trek that Wendy and I took in 2012. We were members of team Canada for the Arthritis Society and were able to raise almost $18,000 for this charity.

I have collected a number of cameras and photography accessories over the years.  Here are some pictures of what I have.  I'll try to post full information on each camera in the future (when I get some spare time).
