This is a picture of my dog, by the incredibly talented +Animal Art by LAW, that I commissioned as a Christmas present for my wife. Check out Lisa's page to see more of her amazing work.

Thanks to all for a great day yesterday. It was a shame we couldn't join you today also, but I hope you had another good day. I'm looking forward to seeing all the photos.

Here's one from Portland. I'm not sure who that is on the edge of the rocks, but I'm pretty sure +Gordon Laing is amongst the line-up, and that bright blue bag looks suspiciously like +Anthony Owen-Jones's.

+Gerard Charnley That sounds about right. She could probably smell the food!
+John Dunne Looking forward to next time already :)
+Gordon Laing & +Thomas Paris Thanks for being ghosts for me and giving it a sense of scale :) There's definitely more tripods there than people though.
+Anthony Owen-Jones I've no idea what all those yellow hats were all about. Weirdly there were about 40+ of them, but somehow your blue bag still seems to have shown up in more photos :)

Dorset Photowalk 2013 - I wasn't able to join for the whole weekend, but I had a great day in Dorset yesterday with my wife Alli, our dog, and 30+ photographers from all over the place. It was a pleasure to meet all those that I did, and a shame I didn't get chance to chat with everyone.
I'll put up some more photos soon, but this was taken towards the end of the day from Portland Bill, looking towards Pulpit Rock with +Gordon Laing+Anthony Owen-Jones and others shooting from a closer vantage point. I hope everyone had a great day 2, although I don't envy them for having to get up so early this morning to catch the sunrise at Old Harry Rocks!  My thanks to +Athena Carey, +John Dunne and +Andy Bitterer for organising everything, and to everyone else too :)

Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset - just found this in the archive from a couple of years ago. Last year we rented the distant tower for a few days.

you have! I remember you're not particularly fond of them :) The video is a bit embarrassing but it was fun to work on. Hope you're keeping well. South Africa? Moved again, or just visiting?

Introduction
Living in the Forest of Dean, England. I mainly shoot landscapes and wildlife, but most kinds of photography interest me in one way or another. I hope you like my work and enjoy looking through my pictures. My 'proper' web site is at www.benlockephotography.co.​​uk, but there's various other bits and pieces at www.benlocke.co.uk.

In addition to photography I enjoy playing the guitar, albeit not very well, and love music in general. Much of my time is spent walking in the Forest of Dean where I live, although I try to see as much of the country as I can with my wife and dog.
