About Me

Formerly avid caver, now enthusiastic canoeist (white water and sea kayak, occasional open boating). Skier, ski-tourer, cyclist, walker, climber, mountaineer, photographer, boat-builder, reader... About two thirds of Munros bagged, which I'm aiming to resume now the kids have flown. The b******s have added more to the list (some promoted from tops of Munros I'd already climbed) so I seem to be going backwards, especially as I've decided I should climb every hill which has ever been a Munro (323 of which I've done 209).

I first discovered geograph whilst searching for photos of new rivers to paddle and quite a lot of my photos (and descriptions) are aimed to meet this need, since photos from on the water seemed under-represented. My best hope for getting the green squares, however, seems to involve sea kayaking to remote skerries or bits of coast far from roads and paths.

Personal milestones:

First photo shortlisted for PoTY, a week after becoming a user. My first winner was a year later in week 10 of 2010 (another visit to Mull) and a second after a wait of 12 years. As many of my better submissions in the first few months were from my deep past, those weren't eligible. I've had two winners of YOMP - one from the Lakes (where I've stomped about for years) and one from my first (and so far only) visit to Knoydart.
