  1. This one should really be retitled ‘Awaiting the Applause’- because that’s exactly what it deserves! A man of your considerable talent should really be getting national coverage, and i’m quite surprised that it hasn’t happened already…The term ‘undiscovered genius’ often springs to mind when I gaze at the wonders on your site.

    I know that canal photography isn’t everyone’s bag, but surely most people can appreciate the sheer craftmanship in a picture like this. It’s an absolute delight, and by no means a one off; the whole Grimes collection is indeed a testimony to a gifted-and clearly humble- artist, who is long overdue his big break.

    I know I speak for many when I say it can’t happen soon enough…we await the thaw…heralding your titanic arrival on the world stage!

  2. Now that’s what I call a proper photographer’s shot.

    The breaking ice makes a really absorbing pattern; the angle and lighting is spot on; and the cobalt turquoise shade on the barge makes a really nice colour distinction. An imaginative title too.

    You’ve clearly got a real passion for photography.

    Just one request: perhaps you could upload a picture of yourself on your ‘About’ page. It would be nice to put a face to all the images.
