A week in the Lake District by Andy Cole (flagman) Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 351 W: 44 N: 607] (2408) :: 2006-05-19 - 2006-05-26 :: 3415 Views

I visited the Lake District for the first time since really getting back into photography, so with the intention of getting some good wildlife or landscape shots, preferably both. I'll post some of my favourites here. (5 photos)

A day at Whipsnade [III] by Andy Cole (flagman) Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 351 W: 44 N: 607] (2408) :: 2006-02-18 :: 3626 Views

It was a very gloomy day that we chose to go to Whipsnade with some friends, and very cold. The last visit was unsuccesful, photography-wise, and I expected the same due to the poor weather and poor light, but I always take the camera anyway. Happily, I got some of my best photos from many visits in the last 6 months. More will be added. (5 photos)

I am a regular visitor to Whipsnade Wild animal Park in Bedfordshire, so a lot of my posts are from there, the animals are just to much more interesting than the birds in my garden! Here is the second of my travelogues, I'll be adding more, I hope the quality of the photos improves each time.
Enjoy!

A day at Whipsnade [I] by Andy Cole (flagman) Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 351 W: 44 N: 607] (2408) :: 2005-07-09 :: 3640 Views

Just on a whim, we went for a day out to Whipsnade Wild animal Park in Bedfordshire.
I haven't been there for years, probably about 10 years, and it hasn't changed much. It holds more interest for me now I've got back into photography and have all you nice people to share my photos with :) So I've bought a year's pass and I expect this will be the first of many travelogues - Hopefully the quality of the photos will improve each time :) (6 photos)

A week in Elveden Forest by Andy Cole (flagman) Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 351 W: 44 N: 607] (2408) :: 2005-04-22 - 2005-04-29 :: 3883 Views

I spent 7 days at Center Parcs in Elveden Forest, Suffolk in April 2005. There is much wildlife there, here are some of the highlights. For those not familiar with Center Parcs, they are holiday parks with an emphasis on nature and sports. Each village is usually situated in a forest containing lots of wildlife, mostly water birds as there is usually a lake and many smaller water areas in the village. Ducks, geese and swans are common, of course, but there are sometimes more rare animals including some endangered species. Unfortunately my travelogue consists of the more usual subjects. :) (11 photos)

2 trips to the Maldives by Andy Cole (flagman) Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 351 W: 44 N: 607] (2408) :: 2000-05 - 2001-05 :: 5421 Views

I first visited the Maldives in May 2000, and was looking forward to tring out SCUBA diving and snorkelling in what was rated as one of the best places in the world for diving. I was not disappointed.... (full story) (7 photos)
