About Me

Formerly avid caver, now enthusiastic canoeist (white water and sea kayak, occasional open boating). Skier, ski-tourer, cyclist, walker, climber, mountaineer, photographer, boat-builder, reader... About two thirds of Munros bagged, but this game has been somewhat in abeyance as the kids grew up. I'm now starting to pick up the thread again, but the b******s have added more (some promoted from tops of Munros I'd already climbed) so I seem to be going backwards....

I first discovered geograph whilst searching for photos of new rivers to paddle and quite a lot of my photos are aimed to meet this need, since photos from on the water seemed under-represented. My best hope for getting the green squares, however, seems to involve kayaking to remote skerries.

The personal milestones seem to add up quite quickly:

My first photo cited in Stellar Examples Game for Information was submitted on my second day as a user, but the next took a while longer (and was not an exciting photo). A third materialised after a solo sea kayak trip to Mull and a fourth after another Mull visit (must be a particularly inspiring place!)
NM8172 : Camping at Seilag on an inland sea kayak trip by Andy Waddington NY9516 : Race Yate bridleway by Andy Waddington NM6622 : Port a' Ghlinne landing by Andy Waddington NM7734 : Lady's Rock beacon by Andy Waddington

My first photo shortlisted for GoTY (PoTY nowadays) was in week 10 of 2009, a week after becoming a user, but it took a while to get the hang of it. My first (and so far only) winner was a year later in week 10 of 2010 (another visit to Mull). As many of my better submissions in the first few months were from my deep past, those weren't eligible.
