Photos Selected By Getty Images

Tuesday June 29, 2010

Nine of my photographs currently on Flickr have been selected by Getty Images for inclusion in their image catalogue.

Eight are currently live and available for purchase/licensing, the ninth is currently in the Getty Images processing queue.

I’m not sure how well these images will sell (if at all) but this may mean that my images get into print or other media use!

[Edit: 17th July 2010] The ninth image has been cleared by the Editors and is now listed!



A Week in Norfolk

Sunday June 13, 2010

Uncharacteristically, I went away on holiday last week.  I took the week off work and we headed up to Norfolk – a part of the UK which I’ve never visited before.

The Trek was strapped to the back of the car with the intention of a few long rides in this relatively flat area of England, a good way to get me back on the Trek after my 307 mile Charity ride.  Since that ride in April I haven’t been out on the Trek and I’ve only had a few gentle rides into town on the Dahon so I was hoping that I hadn’t done any permanent damage to my knees and that I would still be able to cycle.

The bad news was that the weather was pretty poor.  The good news is that we had some dry spells during the week and we managed an 11 mile ride around the Norfolk countryside and I didn’t have any pain from my knees.

We’d booked out ‘Little Lodge 1‘ for a week.  A perfect, modern, self-catering cottage on the edge of Bylaugh Hall’s estate (closed and repossessed?).  The cottage had parking and storage available for the bikes so it was an excellent choice of accommodation.  The owners of the Lodge gave us a warm welcome upon arrival and the Lodge itself was spotless.

Little Lodge 1 (2 is also available) is a great place to base a Norfolk holiday and it’s pretty central with all the major Norfolk attractions within easy reach – click here for a view/map of Little Lodge.

A great place for a cycling holiday, weather permitting!


Total Raised For MNDA…

Saturday June 12, 2010

Well, it looks like all sponsorship/donations are in for my 307 mile ride for charity.  My total is now at £2,889.10 (144% of my target) – a brilliant total, my thanks to everyone for their fantastic generosity!

You can still donate, if you feel like it, by simply clicking on the link below.  If you want to read about my ride then the report is available here.
