Michael Lynch
Pictures from his corner of the how he describes his photographs.
Cycling and walking the Downs and other areas of the Rother Valley he carefully spies photographic opportunities.
Not using a digital camera, his photographs are taken with his collection of second hand film cameras. He gets the negatives developed at Peak Imaging, thereafter he scans them and usually makes some adjustments in Photoshop. This gives even more 'mood' to his work, varying from the 'romantic to the slightly spooky'.
Although not a professional photographer he does sell the odd print here and there to try to recover some of his costs.
He has contributed a number of his photos, spread throughout the site, the bulk of which can be found in the Rother Valley Trail

Including our 'in house' photographers and a large contingent of local & UK contributors, we have many contributors, ranging from as far afield as France, Holland, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the USA
As of 1st October 2013
This combined site is composed of over 16,630 pages and contains over 28,350 images.
