I promised myself that I was going to enter every round of this competition this year in my continuing effort to expose my photography to a wider audience. So far I’ve entered the first round ‘Water in the Landscape’ and with the deadline of 30th March for round two (‘Natural Light Portraits’) I need to find a willing model if I’m going to carry on fulfilling the promise.

Details of the competition can be found here.


Here are some old photos I found while looking for content for a new post. These pictures were taken at the Hill of Crosses near Siauliai in Lithuania. My girlfriend, who is Lithuanian, took me there when we stayed with her parents for a few weeks back in 2010. There are tens of thousands of crosses placed on the hill and it is a truly breathtaking sight.

In preparation for setting up this blog I took a walk to the rock gardens around the corner from my flat. Here are a few selections from that trip.
