About Me

Lone tree at Llyn Padarn Llanberis, Snowdonia

My name is Gerald Murphy.  I am a retired local government officer. At the time of my retirement I was an IT manager and had associated responsibilities for training. I had previously been involved, in various organisations, with aspects of industrial training and management development. My main hobby is photography and, until 2016, hillwalking in Snowdonia. Sciatica has put an end to mountain walks and, as a carer for my wife, opportunities for photography excursions are now more limited. Since July 2022, I have started using this site as a photobook.

I am married and live in Merseyside. I have a son by my first marriage – my wife died in 1998 – and two grandchildren. My second wife was also widowed when we met. She has two children by her first marriage and now has six grandchildren. Sadly, she now has Parkinson’s disease.
