About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres.

I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

Walking around the perimeter_1

Life is about finding solutions and compromises to day-to-day issues. Shopping for example. Men aren’t much good at patiently waiting while their wives shop, and wives certainly don’t like their husbands fidgeting around while they shop. When we go to … Continue reading

Woven

I’m not sure whether the elements of this beautiful weave are from Willow trees (genus Salix) or perhaps, more likely, of Dogwood (genus Cornus). This was taken at Wakehurst Place an estate not too far from us which also is … Continue reading

Footprints

The snow of last February is almost forgotten although for me down here in West Sussex there was never much of it – barely an inch at a time. I would have liked a little more. It melted rapidly, all … Continue reading
