Anyone who has watched daytime TV in the UK will quite possibly recognise this area. This is the Albert Docks, the backdrop to 'This Morning' for many years. [Taken: 8th June 2008]

Liverpool I

This weekend I traveled to Liverpool (2008 European capital of culture), and took far too many pictures! Therefore, as a 'treat', I'll be having a 'Liverpool Week'. This first photo is of the gateway to Liverpool's China town, reputedly the oldest in the world. [Taken: 7th June 2008]

Lincoln I

This is the impressive Lincoln Cathedral. Originally it had a wooden spire on top of the stone towers, making it the tallest building in the world for over 200 years. It is still very impressive today and many hundreds of thousands of pounds are required to prevent it from falling into disrepair. [Taken: 15th April 2006]

Nottingham I

This is the famous Major Oak, found in Sherwood Forest near Nottingham. Famed for its age and size plus its ties with the folklore of Robin Hood, this tree attracts up to 600,000 visitors a year. [Taken: 30th May 2008]

Berlin III

This is a church I saw randomly whilst wandering around Berlin. I've cropped the image mainly because there was a large amount of building work going on in the foreground, which is a shame since it spoilt the overall view. [Taken: 7th June 2007]

London III

The famous London Eye, I've yet to actually ride this wheel, maybe when I do I can provide you with some amazing skyline shots of the English capital. [Taken: 11th March 2006]

Paris V

I've posted this photo mainly because I am amazed at how well it turned out. This is Les Invalides in Paris as viewed from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Considering how far away the building was and how rubbish my camera was (only 3x optical zoom, plus 4x digital) this image has come out very nicely. [Taken: 20th June 2007]
