Hold on... what??? So I logged in this morning to see that this photo: Has been given a DD!! I honestly never thought I'd get one of those, so I am truly stunned. Thank you to anyone who suggested and to Kaz-D (https://www.deviantart.com/kaz-d) for featuring it! I'm a very happy guy this morning! As many of you have seen I'm not as active here as I once was, but hopefully that's starting to change as I come back, and hopefully more to come in the very near future. Thanks to everyone who's stuck with me for my rather extended hiatus :) .

Hi everyone, First off I'd like to confirm that I'm still here, and am still out taking photos. Apologies that I'm not active on here at all recently. I've been very busy with various things over the past few months, and really haven't had time to get on here and respond to anything. This does not mean I'm leaving though! I will try to get back on here a lot more in the next few days, and should have new uploads up soon. I currently have over 1000 comments and nearly 700 deviations to look at, so please bear with me as I catch up! Many more up-to-date pieces can be found on my Facebook page here: www.facebook.com/lbraileyphotography Or on

Hi everyone, Hope you're all well, and again apologies for the lack of activity on here recently. I'm just reaching the end of the year though, so I should be free soon! This is just a quick post to ask a favour from you all. As you all know, I entered (after much cajoling) the Marwell Wildlife Photographic competition last year, and was lucky enough to win one of the categories. This years contest has just been announced, and whilst I still have a long time before deadline day, I'm really struggling working out which five pieces to submit. I have already had suggestions for http://www.lawriebrailey.co.uk/Pages/OnTheHunt.aspx and http://www

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.

May your Birthday be special in every way
and as special as you are:
