North of the border

I’m rather fond of Scotland. I don’t go there nearly as much as I ought to, mainly because it’s such a hike, but every time I’ve been I’ve discovered something new. Whether it’s the tranquility of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, the stark beauty of Glencoe or the nordic history and diverse bird life of Shetland, it’s got pretty much everything.

Spreading the love

Last year, The Guild of Photographers asked me if I’d like to come along with them on a photo tour of Iceland. I don’t need to tell you my response. Acting as a combination of participant and Iceland ‘expert’ (I hesitate to use that term as I know there is so much I still have to learn about the country) I flew to my second home on 10th March and spent 8 amazing days with a lovely group of photographers and our brilliant guide, Siggi.

Believe it or not, ‘Little Britain’ is one of the many names given to the French region of Brittany. This ties in with the French name for it, ‘Bretagne’, as compared to their name for Great Britain, ‘Grand Bretagne’. Settled by migrants from Cornwall and other Celtic regions of the British Isles, Brittany has its own distinct identity and even has its own language, Breton (or Brezoneg) which is very similar to Cornish.

I recently visited on a family holiday, staying in the region known as ‘Cornouaille’ in the south west of Brittany, near the city of Quimper. Some photos are online on my site, and all are available to buy as prints. Please feel free to have a browse by clicking here.
