Country Matters


s a writer and photographer specialising in the outdoors and travel I'm frequently mistaken for someone on holiday! Of course, I'm not: when I'm walking the fells of Lakeland or the bleak acres of the Migneint in Snowdonia, or partaking of a little liquid refreshment in an auberge in some rural part of France, I'm working - honest. Okay, it's the kind of work I longed for during thirty years in local government; it pays half as much, and involves much longer hours. But there is no going back; guess I'll just have to keep on writing.

I reckon everyone has to have a purpose in life. Fanciful as it might seem, I like to consider a sizeable chunk of mine to be sharing with others the unadulterated joy I get from recreational walking, and the pleasure of visiting places that for years I'd never heard of.

I sincerely hope that through my writing and photography you find inspiration that will encourage your own exploration, and your own joy in the great wealth of nature, history and culture that awaits.
