Welcome. My name is Alan Richmond and on this web site I publish my favourite photos. Most of the photos here were taken by me on my Nikon D50, and processed from RAW with Nikon Capture NX2. I and my wife Lucy operate an online science shop called Curious Minds. We met when working on software for Hubble Space Telescope users. Tips: Press Ctrl & + (together) to enlarge text & pictures.
