Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Catching the slope

I find it very hard to capture slopes and hilly tracks in photographs. What I feel is very hilly and quite spectacular out there on the ground turns out to be flat and boring when loaded in from camera and leaves me, let alone my audience, saying "so what". There's a similar issue with some of the wide open views that we have here in Wiltshire.

But I felt that this picture managed to capture the drama of the edge of the Marlborough Downs at Roundway Hill Covert - (more pictures) - a beauty spot that's only 15 minutes from us in Melksham and is worth visiting at more or less any time of year (not that I would be keen on that path in the ice!)

In the last couple of weeks, I've stolen a couple of hours here and there to grab a few extra pictures even closer to home than Roundway Hill ... just look around the corner in Melksham and it's surprising what you can find - or perhaps follow one of thse links if you're not in town at the moment.

Link - Church Walk
Link - Melksham Miscellany

And near to Roundway Hill, you'll also find ...

Link - Oliver's Castle
Link - The Devizes White Horse
