End of An Era

 It is with a heavy heart that after 12 Years of posting to my wildlife photography blog that I have decided to call it a day.I am currently having mobility problems and am finding great difficulty in getting around as I would like.


It has indeed been a wonderful twelve years when I have taken many thousands of images of Lancashire's wonderful wildlife and put the best of these regularly on the blog.In those twelve years I have made 559 postings to my blog.I look back regularly through my work as a wildlife photographer and am very pleased at what I have achieved. It will remain as a legacy to twelve very happy years.


I will still post images to the internet but they will be on my Flickr site. www.flickr.com/photos/brianrafferty  Thanks for looking in and hope you can continue to keep in touch via Flickr. Enjoy Christmas if you can and keep safe and well in these very difficult times

  1. Oh this is sad news Brian. First of all that you can not go out in nature as you would like. 12 years of showing us your encounters with nature, amazing. Than you also will stop with Blogger that is also sad. You say you are continuing in Flickr. That is also sad (for me) because I am not on Flickr.
    I will miss your blogs!
    For you and your loved ones I wish you Merry Christmas and for 2021 all the best most of all good health and that the virus Corona may be stopped.
    Take care,
    Roos

  27. The Gas Treatment Market has been witnessing a considerable growth owing to the rapid industrialisation and urbanisation. The enforcement of strict air pollution control regulations in major regions worldwide is leading to a rise in demand for acid gas removal procedures. Furthermore, the discovery of new gas reserves across the globe is also expected to create significant opportunities for the growth of the market. Additionally, the increasing adoption of natural gas is expected to support the market growth in the forecast period, as these gas treatment systems are commonly utilised to treat and enhance the quality of natural gas for further use.
