I'm originally from a small village in South Wales close to the beautiful Gower Peninsula. Now I live in Santa Monica, California and enjoy the sunshine year round. I love seeing and contributing to the photographs displayed on this wonderful website. Some of the photos displayed appear to be out of this world, but actually they are simply part of this great world that we take so much for granted.
