Originally from Cumbria (Lancashire really), Lynn and her family retired to North Yorkshire in 2011. In 2015, after her husband declared that she needed a hobby (because she was driving him mad!), she decided to dabble in photography.
Until then Lynn enjoyed taking family holiday snaps with instant and later bridge cameras. After purchasing a Nikon DSLR, Lynn decided she needed help improving her limited photography skills and subsequently joined Kirkbymoorside and District Camera Club.
Lynn likes to photograph a variety of subjects, from landscapes to architecture and wildlife but admits she is not keen on creative photography, but will have a go!
Lynn combines her enjoyment of photography with her love to travel and has recently returned from her first wildlife photographic holiday to Kenya.
On a cloudy morning in the Maasai Mara, our jeep came across a cheetah hiding in the long grass. After a few more jeeps joined us, the cheetah decided to take note and sat watching us watching her.
|Taking a Rest
During a recent trip to the Maasai Mara in Kenya, my jeep waited for over 2 hours for this leopard to decide to come down her tree. She never came down until all the jeeps had disappeared, but I managed to get some wonderful images of her relaxing in the high branches.
|Yosemite Valley Glow
Taken on a January evening after an extremely cold and snowy day, the sunset was well worth the early setup of my equipment. The setting sun striking El Capitan, with the reflection in the river, lit up the then darkening valley floor. The fog was an added bonus.
This was my second attempt in 2 days to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The first time, the road up to the overlook was closed and I needed to walk up from the bottom car park. By the time I reached the overlook, the sun was already up. Two days later… success! The sunrise was far better than the one I missed.
|Junagarh Fort Entrance, India
This beautiful staircase was once the main entrance to Junagarh Fort. Now tourist pass by it on the way to the new entrance. Not many take the time to stop and admire the craftsmanship. Finding a gap in the constant flow of visitors to frame and take a picture was challenging but I somehow managed this handheld shot.
There are lots of different birds nesting, feeding and rearing their young at Bempton Cliffs, but by far the most prolific are the gannets. I spotted this gannet preening in the sunshine with the cliff behind in deep shadow.
I particularly enjoy taking photographs of egrets although they can be hard to photograph when in bright sunshine. This egret was enjoying a stroll along a shell covered beach in Florida on a very hot November afternoon without a care in the world, except his next meal!
|Kulata Tjuta (Many Spears)
This sculpture was part of the 2017 Tarnanthi Festival in Adelaide, South Australia. There are 500 aboriginal spears suspended in midair with the only light coming from the central pendant. The sculpture was made of wood, spinfex resin and kangaroo tendon.
