The Climbing Professor

Ex professor actually, erstwhile Professor of Primary Care & GP, tireless fighter for the NHS, afficionado of strange African music, DJ and climber enjoying his retirement in the very best way possible. On the rock with the sun on your back.






I don't think his daughter was quite as keen as he was.

Re: The Climbing Professor

John - I saw your post of the Prof earlier, and wondered then - do your climbers wear helmets? The photos I see out here all do.
Rather him than me - prefer my feet on the ground.

Re: The Climbing Professor

I think that all rock climbers are nuts!! Having said that I am jealous that I couldn't face that kind of hobby...I prefer photography....and enjoying others work!!

Re: The Climbing Professor

Thanks for commenting. Re helemts, that crag is pretty safe, nothing is going to drop on your head, plus people of our age have done all of teh stuff we can do on them and aren't likley to fall off.. On bigger stuff - mountains/seaccliffs etc - helmets are de rigeur.

Re: The Climbing Professor

Well I'll join him in the love of African music but not the rock climbing.

Nice pics.

Re: The Climbing Professor

You've captured it well, John - looks like a challenging crag, power to the professor!

Re: The Climbing Professor

Excellent photography capturing the level of concentration require to be a rock climber.
I must add that the 'professor' looks far too young to be retired - he has hair after all!

Something I've never dared to do. Good photography subject though and I would have been very happy to have taken No2 - well all of them really.

That second one is a superb portrait of a man in his element. Lovely shot.

Re: The Climbing Professor

Cheeers. It's not nearly as scary as it looks, this climbing lark. Just jolly good fun.
