Ready To Return

Hello again, after a rather long absence due to other commitments. One of those commitments was the painstakingly long task of revamping my website following the decision to expand the size of the pages. What should have been a fairly straightforward task became one that took many hours to complete, as the content on every single page had to be realigned to suit. I chipped away here and there, mostly during days when the weather was less than favourable, so being indoors behind the laptop kept me more than busy. Web design can be tricky, depending on what you're wanting to achieve, from the simple to the complicated. I prefer to fall somewhere in between. Since the site inception in February 2008 and a visitor count of over 250,000, I dread to think how many hours I've put into my site. It's most definitely a labour of love, there's no mistaking that and I'm quite proud of my creation considering I had no previous experience in website design. And so to the next chapter ... as prepares to go again and I now have extra time to do what I enjoy very much - getting out there with the camera.

By the way, it hasn't all been about the website. I've still been out there now and again, taking photographs. flying my drone and pulling in some nice time lapse footage with the GoPro. Yes, there's plenty of new stuff queued up and ready to unleash once I get the editing done, so stay tuned for that and much more. As the dark winter nights creep ever closer, there should be a nice balance of blog updates (and there's plenty of those in the pipeline) as well as photography outings, which should continue into 2018 and beyond. So much to do and not enough hours in the day.

Anyway, that's all for now. Just a little reminder that I still exist and with the most tedious task now behind me, it's time to go again, with the enjoyable stuff.
