Yesterday I had planned to take a photographic walk with a friend in London. As it became apparent that the weather situation was not in our favour, we have found the perfect place to spend some time with photography. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has a lot of great objects which you can photograph and you are allowed to do so. I have added a few shots from the days adventures in my galleries, which even features some photographs of the worlds most feared creature. To view the gallery, please click the image below.

Seems like I am gradually converting this site into one specializing in cat portaiture. Not really, but I have to say they make great subjects to photograph, as they are completely unpredictable. But still once you had your lucky moment you will be able to recognize their particular character.

I had the pleasure to go on a helicopter sightseeing tour of London yesterday with the London Helicopter centre in Redhill Surrey. The trip was taken with a AS 350 Squirrel. With 140 mph top speed we reached London in just a few minutes to fly along the River Thames giving me some opportunities to make use of my camera. The weather could have been better, as most of central London was covered in mist, covering the glass of the helicopter. However I still managed to get some quite nice shots of famous locations such as Battersea Power Station, Houses of Parliament, London Eye and the City of London with its skyscrapers. I have added a few images to my galleries.

Due to the second volcanic ash cloud, coming  as a result of the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, our return flights from Lanzarote have been delayed by seven days. This gave me more opportunity to take photographs, including shots from a nightdive and some exciting kite-surf stunts.

I love freediving and Lanzarote offers a lot of different places to explore the underwater world where you can find school of small to large fish, Angel Sharks, Stingrays, TriggerFish, Sepia and more.

One  amazing location for freediving is a spot between Puerto del Carmen and Porto Calero. If you swim about 70 meters off shore, you can view 2 wrecks in around 20 meters depth. I have managed to take a panorama of both of these, which I will include in my Lanzarote Gallery.

Below is one of the panoramas of the wrecks I have explored
