WELCOME TO MY NEW PHOTOGRAPHY WEBSITE
Hello, I'm Dave Simmons and I have been interested in Nature and Wildlife, especially Birds, since I was a child. I began taking Birding more seriously about 9 years ago when I became a member of the local Ogston Bird Club based at Ogston Reservoir in Derbyshire.
My new local patch around the village where I live is mostly open countryside and farmland with many large areas of Woodland, the River Derwent and the Cromford Canal.
It is a beautiful and very scenic area as well as being a good area for birding.
I am a very keen Amateur Photographer and love taking Photo's. Wildlife and Birds mainly but also Landscapes & Nature. Getting a good quality Photo of a bird can be very difficult as they don't stay still for very long and are usually quite some distance away. It requires lots of patience, lots of time and luck but mainly by simply getting out there as often as you can to try and capture that really "great" Photograph.
LATEST NEWS AND PHOTO'S
Tuesday 29th October - Just spent the last week in Wales, however the weather wasn't good for much bird photography. I did manage
a couple of days when I braved the very windy coastal path to try and get some coastal landscape shots. Check them out from the homepage in the Latest Photo's Gallery. It's a stunning coastline and I got these shots between the heavy showers. More to follow.
