New Display at Buxton Gallery in the Gardens

I changed all of my framed photographs in my display in the Gallery in the Gardens in Buxton Pavilion Gardens. This is my local Gallery.

There are a few new prints in the browsers too.


I had been meaning to make the change for some weeks and had all the pictures ready to go. Jolly pleased to finally make the change!

The Gallery is the home for High Peak Artists, of which I am one. The 43 of us in HPA rent the space from the local council and we share the running of it between us. It’s open every day of the year except Christmas Day. All of the work is original and includes several types of painting, mixed media, print making, ceramics, wood turning, fabrics and textiles, glass and several jewellers.

New Alpine Images

I have added a lot of new photographs to my web gallery. These are from various trips over the years and include ski mountaineering and skiing.

Locations include:

The Gran Paradiso area of northwest Italy near Aosta.
The Bernese Oberland around Murren.
Mountains around Saas Fee, Zermatt and Gressoney.
Photos from the summit of the Aiguille du Tour near Chamonix.
