Charles was introduced to photography by a friend a few years after he retired in 2000. He feels he is still on a steep learning curve both with the digital camera and the necessary computer work.
His main photographic interests are wild life (birds mainly) and farming and farm animals (principally sheep).
He also limits his sphere of photography to within twenty five miles of his home. This is no hardship as he lives in the Yorkshire Dales. Many of his photographs are taken out of the window of his Land Rover Discovery which is a very good mobile hide.
