Biography

All my photos I load up are also loaded to Flickr where you can view larger;

https://www.flickr.com/photos/colin-mair/.

I am an amateur photographer and I have taken up photography again, a few years ago, after a break of about 25 years when I had a Pentax and Olympus 35mm SLR.
I am now using a Sony A6000, with a Sony A5000 as a back up and get out most weekend to take some photos.
I have now explored the wonderful world of Manual lens, including old Russian ones which are surprising good!!!
Hope you enjoy the photos and maybe help inspire and give ideas,....

        Lovely. I'm assuming the postcard you sent me from NZ is still in the post?

          Thank you, Howard! Now that you mentioned it, I can't recall seeing a postcard anywhere, but did notice the postal offices had free wi-fi :-)

              Absolutely! I always got excited about the returning images. Just to see if they turned out. Even better when they were alright.

                beautiful light and colors! I stopped drinking milk after a girlfriend said to me: "what are you a baby cow?" Haha!

                  Thanks, I like this image but it needed a bit of work in LR to lift the shadows. I suppose I do imply that I have milk for breakfast but actually it tends to be vodka or gin or both but I didn't mention that in case people judge me?

                Wow! Another beauty Howard. I love the composition with the large area of the sky.

                  Thanks, I don't really have an immediately recognisable style of landscape photography but I do tend to include a lot of sky.

                    In looking at the thumbnails I see most of them are showing a lot of sky. Good, not so good? All I know is you have captured so many really beautiful images. Great work!

                  Thanks, it was a little after dawn but the sun took a little while to get over the hill but the mist helped to diffuse the light making it more interesting.
