About Me

I didn't discover geograph until 07/07/07 when most local squares had been taken but I got hooked pretty quickly. My heartland is East Suffolk, where I was born and grew up, and Norfolk, where I lived for nearly 30 years! I have got lots of interests and some of them surface through my geograph submissions.

My few GotY shortlistees:
2009: TM0025 : Night-time snow scene in Roman Road (2) by Zorba the Geek TM0534 : Stratford St Mary church, seen from East Bergholt by Zorba the Geek NH2828 : Dog Falls cock chaffinch in breeding plumage by Zorba the Geek TM4596 : Swans, cows, marsh by Zorba the Geek TM0734 : Sheep-shearing: now for the legs by Zorba the Geek won! wk 26
2008: TM1923 : Female Emperor Moth by Zorba the Geek TF8745 : Red Admiral butterfly by Zorba the Geek TF8545 : Cinnabar caterpillar (close-up) by Zorba the Geek
2007: TM0733 : Human geography at Flatford on August Bank Holiday by Zorba the Geek TG0629 : Ancient oak on the way to Thurning by Zorba the Geek TL9925 : Brimming flower beds in Castle Park by Zorba the Geek TM2832 : Old jetty, new cranes by Zorba the Geek

Seven hectads completed: TM12[8/100], TM36[2/100], TM38[2/100], TM49[10/100], TM46[2/80], TF84 [3/70], TM25 [1/100]

I love panoramas and if you like them too, have a look at the panorama gallery I compiled (now unlocked again!): LinkExternal link

I've also launched 3 other galleries:
LinkExternal link - The idea is to collect locations that have figured in creative writing...and ...
LinkExternal link for those who like sand patterns. And finally, for the übergeek...
LinkExternal link - a world of blue plaques etc.

In January 2008, I reached the dizzy heights of 156th on the points table! But since then I haven't kept up. I've even dropped out of the top 200 for squares photographed.

The few GotYs apart, some of my own favourites:
TM0734 : Field mouse at bay by Zorba the Geek NZ2742 : Cathedral, Castle, Bus station, terraced houses by Zorba the Geek TM0533 : Dedham St Mary's in a sea of trees by Zorba the Geek TM0634 : Pair of Egyptian geese on pasture by Zorba the Geek TM0419 : Young Hawthorn, old Comma by Zorba the Geek TQ2779 : Detail of stained glass exhibit by Zorba the Geek NO7157 : The sea enriches - with mermaids (1) by Zorba the Geek NO7157 : The sea enriches - with mermaids  (2) by Zorba the Geek SJ2988 : St Therese of Lisieux - stained glass window detail ... by Zorba the Geek TQ3079 : Eye across the Thames by night ... by Zorba the Geek TL9332 : Scarce Chaser on bramble leaf by Zorba the Geek TM4477 : Sugar beet at cross purposes by Zorba the Geek TL9336 : Orange Tip on pink flower by Zorba the Geek TM0734 : I spotted a spotted flycatcher by Zorba the Geek TM0734 : Gerroff my maize, if you know what's good for you! by Zorba the Geek TM0734 : Kindly keep off my onions! by Zorba the Geek TM0734 : Not out-of-focus - just fluffy! by Zorba the Geek TM0734 : Sheep-shearing: the shepherd watches the shearer (1) by Zorba the Geek SP5106 : Ervin Bossanyi in St John's College Chapel (2) by Zorba the Geek TM0734 : Juvenile owl at risk by Zorba the Geek TM0733 : Spring sunset afterglow over the Stour at Flatford by Zorba the Geek TM0634 : Midsummer's Day evening across Dedham Vale by Zorba the Geek
