Description I had an unwelcome surprise on the way to this isolated beach. The main road was poorly signposted, and I just turned off at junction where a sign simply said Beach. After crossing several hills and cross roads on this narrow track, and after seeing several soldiers in the distance, I spotted a sign for vehicles going in the opposite direction which read Grenade Range - Keep Out I had travelled about 5km across it by then! Finally at the beach, the heavy clouds opened up to create this picture. The location was the south coast of Cyprus between Larnaca and Ayia Napa.

Hi, my name is Rod and I live in Burton upon Trent, United Kingdom, a town which is known internationally as the capital of British brewing.
Photography has been my passion and main interest since my parents gave me a Kodak Brownie 127 for my 8th birthday. I still have the Brownie and I still have the 1920s Praktica which I bought second-hand a few years later, as my first 35mm SLR. I have covered most aspects of photography, but my preference is for landscape, nature and architectural photography. I am also keen on night shots and I enjoy snorkelling and underwater photography.
I love to travel, and I always have a camera with me where ever I go, ready to capture the unexpected as well as the planned shots. I try to use as little editing as possible with my digital work and I limit this to cropping and the occasional colour correction.
Well, thank you for visiting. Please browse through some of my pictures, and I hope that you find something of interest.
