This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

Wonderfully captured!

Dhamaka says:

Thank you all - Viv, if by beautiful weather you mean sunny, about 9 degrees, with a wind chill that takes it down to zero yes. But gorgeous nonetheless

(sprocket, have you been waiting to say that?)

taniwha says:

How absolutely gorgeous

26th Apr 2011, 11:23

Dhamaka says:

it is taniwha, I can't recommend it enough, you really should consider taking the family there - Atlantic Airways fly direct from Stanstead now (which is how I got there). I'm going to do my best to persuade my brother to take his

and thanks for the HL too.. was that you Caine?

taniwha says:

It's tempting D, especially since they're near Iceland which I'd also love to visit. May have to save my pennies ...

Dhamaka says:

I met people who had taken the ferry from both Denmark and Iceland to get to the Faroes so imagine that one could drive to Denmark and from there get the ferry to both places...

crickson says:

Funny, I don't usually think of ferries as open ocean-going vessels.

I always think of the Faroes as closer to Scotland than Iceland - but still, I don't know how the Egyptians made it so far. It's more impressive than the pyramids in a way.

Far Fair Pharoes in Faroes crickson?

jphn says:

the fastest way to the Faroe Islands is taking a direct Atlantic Airways flight out of Stanstead. In order to take a real North Atlantic venture (combining the Faroe Islands and Iceland) - it is easy to take Atlantic Airways to the Faroe Islands and an Atlantic Airways flight from the Faroe Islands to reykjavik...and then a Icelandair flight back to the UK (-;

Dhamaka says:

what a great idea - As you probably know I mentioned Atlantic Airways in the thread above, but have put their, and IcelandAir's URLs in the first post in case others are interested
