Sankey Valley Park by Cluke111
Sankey Valley Park
Hello and thanks for visiting.

This is a two shot HDR image taken a while back but just discovered today when I was reviewing my older files - I really need to do a proper sort out.

Shot on a beautiful and calm day looking south down the Sankey Valley Park here in Warrington when I was out and about looking for autumnal images to take. I think this one fits the bill nicely.

I hope that you enjoy the work and thanks once again for your visit.

Sunset in Florence last year. Me, my family and a whole horde of other toggers and tourists waited for over an hour on the off chance that the setting sun might break through an overcast sky through a small gap in the clouds near the horizon.. and then this happened...

Thanks for visiting and I hope that you enjoy the work

My name, or at least my internet name, is Cluke, but because of other users getting to this name before me I'm more easily found as Cluke111. This has been with me for some 5 or 6 years now so the name has pretty much stuck.

Having taken early retirement a few years ago I'm enjoying a second chance at life, love and travel and I would now describe myself as an aspiring, opportunist, amateur photographer, a wannabee artist, a keen gardener and all round nice guy - although my partner would probably suggest that house husband should come before all of the previous descriptions, and that the word "grumpy" should appear at least once.:-)

I'm an opportunist photographer in that up until now most of my travel and location photography has been done when on family trips and holidays. And that usually means seeing a picture, getting out the camera and setting the controls, carefully composing and taking the shot plus a couple of extra ones and then legging it like hell to catch up with the family who've grown bored with waiting and wandered off out of sight! Any other work has either been done in my garden or at locations that can be easily reached from home in between school drop off and pick up times. :-)

I've also discovered an interest in some of the more simple fractal programmes and I'm currently trying to make space at home to rekindle my painting and drawing interests. All in all a very productive time of life.

Many thanks for visiting my page and I hope that you enjoy the work.


Cluke :D

I know this has been on my front page for a while now, but the fact is I like it so much that until I can come up with something as pleasing I'm reluctant to replace it. So please, enjoy. :-)

I got a little fed up with my front page so I thought that I would give this StashWriter  thingy a go after seeing the results on other Deviants front pages. This coincides nicely with some shots that I've posted from a recent holiday in Rome where I was trying out a new camera. I've been very
 pleased with the images so far and I wanted to try and display some select ones as a set. I like what I'm seeing so lets hope this looks as good when I upload it.

And whilst I'm here I'd just like to say a big thank you to all of my watchers for all of the support and encouragement that you've given me over the years and thank you to any other visitors that have been graceful and generous in commenting and faving my work

Here goes then....
