New Website

Well I've been and gone and done it!  I have launched a new website.  The plan is to have 2 main sections - Landscape and Rallysport.  So far I have only included Rallysport pictures and over time as I work to scan my back catalogue I will include samples of pictures taken on events over the period 1972 to 1992. 


Landscape pictures from the back catalogue will start to be uploaded shortly.


Have a look

In the meantime here is the picture that initially generated interest when it was published on the Online Photographer last year and made me realise that many people are interested in old rally pictures  - Achim Warmbold  - Donegal Rally 1975:

Moneyscalp Wood

Approximately 14 hectares of  larch trees in Moneyscalp Wood County Down have been felled to prevent the spread of the fungus-like pathogen known as Phytophthora ramorum.


The Forest Service plans to replant the area following the completion of harvesting operation but because spores from the disease remain active in the soil for a period following the felling of trees this restricts the range of species suitable for planting.
