Photo Links

The links here are mostly those that Dave Butcher has found useful in the past. They are also biased towards the equipment that he uses, the places travelled to and other information sources, some that relate to his background and others that have not always been easy to find. We hope you find them useful. Please let us know if any of them are no longer working.
