I am an ecologist and a composer of guitar based instrumental melodies signed to the Real Music label in California. I like to write about my work, music and nature conservation and how it all comes together. I try not to write about things I don't know much about.

Morning run in the snow forest

Restoring more trees to these Welsh mountains

In response to the climate and nature emergencies declared in Wales, many landowners are choosing to restore habitats in places instead of focusing mainly on food production. In these mountains we want more trees in the landscape and this is the beginning.

Moon rise at sunset

I couldn’t help being stopped in my tracks by these beautiful bands of colour in the sky below the rising moon in the east, as the sun set in the west on a cold winters afternoon

Lovely cloud reflections on wet sand

Got really lucky with the light and the shear beauty of the beach on this one. Marloes Sands, Pembrokeshire, Wales

Pembrokeshire coast at its finest

A brand new tune…

Diatoms are microscopic algae found in the worlds oceans and waterways. They absorb 10-20 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year as they float on the surface of the ocean, and they exhale more oxygen than all the world’s rainforests. These tiny drifting algae generate about 20 percent of the oxygen produced on Earth each year.

On this track I play bass, acoustic guitar, piano, electric guitar #COP26 #saveourseas #climateaction
