I had my first camera for my 10th birthday - a Kodak 120 - and have been taking photographs ever since. In fact, some of the old black and white photographs I've put on Geograph were taken with this camera. I became interested in Geograph in 2005 when I saw it mentioned on the ePHOTOzine website. It has made me look at my surroundings in a completely different way. I have taken many photographs which I would not have done otherwise. As well as new images, I have also used a lot of photographs from the archive that never saw the light of day. Those thousands of photographs I have taken over the years are now being dusted off and sorted out. I also have the dubious distinction at one time of being the only woman on the "Most taken in a Day" Leaderboard with 258 images taken on a visit to Lindisfarne on 31 March 2009. However, I am now no longer on the board with the prolific contributors we now have. I am pleased to have been asked to be a Moderator.

Although Geograph aren't always that keen on sunsets I love them as each one is unique, depending on the time of year, the weather and the atmospheric conditions prevailing at the time. The image of the silhouetted trees was taken in February and the Millennium Dome from the Thames Barrier was taken in March. Both images show the colours which appear after the sun has set when there are ice crystals in the upper atmosphere which reflect the red of the setting sun:
