About

MARTIN PHOTOGRAPHY: Joan Martin and grandsons, Jackson Martin (15) and Billy Martin (11).

As a Cumbrian born and bred, I'm really enjoying being able to combine my appreciation of the northern countryside with a lifelong passion for photography. I love the thrill of seeing spectacular landscapes  and discovering new places. I enjoy fascinating histories, finding hidden treasures, seeing all things quirky, and sitting for hours watching wildlife. Hopefully through this site I will be able to share these experiences with you and give you lots of ideas for great places to visit and explore  . . .  .    Joan
