Geraint Ashton Jones
Director - Alligin Photography
A love of the outdoors, its wildlife and sport has defined me and my outlook on life. As I have grown older and the mountain marathons have taken their toll on my legs I no longer rush past our great landscapes, strain to get to the next check point, drive onward and upward to reach the distance summit or to discover how far I could push myself in the pursuit of exhaustion. Instead, with a slower pace, I now seek to travel within the landscape. With more time to observe there is more time to appreciate what we have around us, if only we give nature the chance to reveal Herself.
As a youngster I was never far from the sea and spent many hours swimming, surfing and messing around in rock pools. Later life was spent on the water in sailing dinghies, yachts and windsurfers. It was listening to a presentation from Gill about her diving and underwater photography that re-kindled my interest in the aquatic world and led to our joint collaboration in the project "Below the Skye Line".
