I have an obsession with storms, clouds, light and any weather related photography. It is such a challenge for me and so thrilling. If I see a storm I am compelled to grab the camera and gravitate to a good vantage point (if I can find one without getting myself killed).

I also greatly love portraiture, especially children and babies.... capturing each individual personality and creating something to be cherished is something that always makes me happy.

Working on post processing skills - I feel mine are lacking and I'd love to take some workshops on advanced techniques.

    "Rachel, i am sure, was my very first friend when I joined the happy band of FLICKR members just over one year ago. She made me feel so very welcome and we both soon found that we had much in common in our mutual interest in travel, perhaps archaeology and
    certainly in ancient Greek mythology. I soon realised what a natural
    photographic skill she was developing, and continues to develop.
    Although she always finds time to keep in touch with her friends,
    she leads a busy life and gives the utmost priority to her young son,
    (who shares her interest in photography), her husband and her
    canine and feline pets. Her cheerful mail can raise one's spirits
    with words or music at any time.
    I am pleased and honoured to have her as a Flickr friend"
