Nile turtle in the Dalyan River (video 1:29, travel, journal)

This Nile Turtle arrived for breakfast every morning at the Longhouse Inn Hotel by the riverside in Dalyan. It was fed on any leftover eggs (scrambled and boiled). Some establishments on the riverside lure the species with chicken skin in order to attract more customers, a practice which is in fact harmful to this secretive turtle which is unable to digest this food alien to its natural diet. I would imagine eggs aren't great for it to be eating every day either…

Photographs from Luxor, Egypt (2004)

In December 2004 I went to Luxor in Egypt with my first digital camera, a 4.0 megapixel  Canon Powershot A80. It was before I was serious about photography and I wasn’t that impressed with the results, mainly because I hadn’t developed my ‘eye’ and didn’t know how to make the best of them.

Eight years later, I’ve sorted through the photos I took then and found much that is interesting and have uploaded a load of new images to my Egypt set on Flickr.

Castle Hill

Man-made Castle Hill in Brailes, Warwickshire, is a prehistoric burial ground that was used as the mound for a Norman motte-and-bailey castle. Brailes (spelled Brayles in early historical documents) is a civil parish about 3 miles (5 km) east of Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire, England. It comprises the two villages of Lower and Upper Brailes but is often referred to as one village as the two adjoin each other.
