Born in Newport in South Wales (UK) a very long time ago; lived in Scotland (Greenock), then Sussex (Worthing), Devon (Yelverton and Plymouth) followed by Wales (Barry, St Athan and Neath/Castell Nedd) again. Moved back to Scotland at last in 2011 !!
Although Scotland is my favourite place, I also love Ireland and Italy.
I have met many fantastic people and good friends here on Flickr, many of whom have helped me enormously with my work - both directly and indirectly. Thank you all for your wonderful encouragement and inspiration!
Some of the other places where I can be found:
Jane in Colour
Firth of Clyde / Around Scotland / Around Kilmarnock /
(If you just wish to contact me, please write using either Flickr Mail or the contact page on Jane in Colour or RedBubble and I shall respond as soon as possible)
My new camera (bought at the end of November 2012) is a Nikon D600. I have also bought two lenses: the Nikon AF-S VR 70-300 f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED and the AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED.
(My photos on Flickr which appeared before the end of November 2012 were taken mainly with my Sony DSLR A100 and my lenses were the Sony Kit Lens (18-70mm f/3.5-5.6), Cosina 100mm f/3.5 Macro lens and Minolta AF 75-300 SLR 1.5m/4.9ft Zoom Lens. I also used a Sony HVL-F42AM Flashgun.
Some other, older, photos were taken with my little point-and-shoot Sony DSC-W50 - and a few of the very old ones with a Konica Minolta DiMAGE S304 which I no longer have.)
I love colourful effects of all kinds (you'll never see any black and white photos on my Photostream!)
Besides photography, I love making kaleidoscopes and fractals. Some of my various images are on this page.

"Although I registered here in 2008 I wasn't active untill I came across one of Jane's photos on Google, I was completely taken aback, it was such a brilliant image and I had to know how it was done. I decided to message her and was surprised by her reply, she was more than helpful, she gave me details and tips on how her photos were done. I was under the impression that people didn't like to divulge their secrets but Jane's kindness started making me think otherwise.
I decided to stick around only because of Jane, I started doing similar photography and with her help I was improving day by day. And today I am only here because of her kindness towards me, If she hadn't replied to that first message I sent her I know for a fact I wouldnt be here today.
It is an honour to call Jane a contact, I am in awe of her talent. She is a truly amazing person as well as a photographer whom I would love to meet one day.
Thankyou Jane for all the inspiration."
