Display Change in Gallery in the Gardens Buxton

I changed my display yesterday in Gallery in the Gardens in Pavilion Gardens Buxton. Several new hand-printed darkroom silver gelatin pictures as well as lots of small mounted darkroom prints at £5 and £15. I'm still being very cautious because of Covid-19 so it's been a long time since it was last updated, it was pleasing to do it at last!

Glasgow to Cape Wrath Trek Diary and Photos

I have pulled together a new gallery web page for the trek I did from Glasgow to Cape Wrath in Scotland over 3 Summers 2003-2005 with friends. Lots of black and white photos and maps of the route.

Swiss Alpine Pass Route

The Swiss Alpine Pass Route runs for 200 miles  between Sargans and Montreux over 18 mountain passes. It is also called the Via Alpina 1 for the part between Sargans and Lenk.

My wife Jan and I walked it with 3 friends in two 8 day sections, the first from Grindelwald to Montreux in 2006 and the second in 2013 from Sargans to Grindelwald. Both trips were in Late August/early September.

I wrote daily blog posts at the time and have combined these, illustrated with mobile phone pictures as well as the black and white photographs that I took on my Mamiya film cameras. There's lots of other information there as well.

Here is the link to the new web page: Swiss Alpine Pass Route

Northumberland Coast Path Trek

Jan and I walked the Northumberland Coast Path in May 2019. It runs from near Ellington in the south to Berwick upon Tweed in the north and we took 6 days to walk the 75 miles.

I posted a series of blog posts at the time but I've pulled them all into one document and added a few more photos.

3 Peaks Dales Way Trek

I've created a web page from the log and photos that I took on a trek that I did with good friend Al from Gloucester in 2019. 

The trek was based on the Dales Way but between Kettlewell and Dent I diverted us over Pen y Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside. 

You may have seen some of them on my blog posts at the time but I've added some new ones too. Here's the link:
