It was some time after our trip to Europe and my partner and I started getting itchy feet. This time we went somewhere a little closer to home, first to Cambodia to see the wonders of Angkor Wat, among other temples and ruins, and then to Phuket in Thailand to relax in the tropical sun.
If there's a point where I could say I had started to become serious about photography, this was it. The memories of fighting with my old point-and-click spurred me on to take the plunge and buy a DSLR.
Now I had the control that I wanted, but little did I realise just how much there was to learn! Here's some of my favourite shots from this trip.
