CATCHING THE MOMENT - NO.1

I am no photographer, but these are a selection of photographs in which I was in the right place at the right time.

Living in the mountains above Cortona, I am surrounded by nature. When I can’t sleep, I have the consolation of amazing dawns. When I go out walking, I usually have the company of at least one of my dogs and more often than not my cats. One of my dogs is a Labrador who loves any type of water whether it be a puddle or a stream. At home we have a pond filled with croaking frogs who give me endless pleasure.  I am no photographer, but these are a selection of photographs in which I was in the right place at the right time.
