Dragon Sanctuary

Welcome.
The Dragon Sanctuary is my personal on-line photo album, which in June 2013 celebrated its
10th anniversary. I hope you have as much enjoyment from looking at the pictures as I have in taking them.
At the last count, there were about 250 pages (not counting the menu pages) containing somewhere
around 3800 photographs and 57 videos. Many are of railways, but there's lots of other subjects to look at as well.

Navigation.
The site is divided up into various sections and there are two types of pages on this site;
Index Pages and Picture Pages and both have a short menu at the bottom of the page.
These menus enable you to easily move around within each section or return to the Home Page.
Additionally clicking on the 'Dragon Sanctuary' logo at the top of Index Pages or the Dragon
picture in the top left corner of Picture Pages will return you to the Home Page.

Updates.
The site is updated whenever I have new pictures to add, which is quite often. The most recent
major updates are shown on the Home Page. A full list of recent updates is available on the
Updates and What's New links on the Home Page.

Dragon Sanctuary Video.
I have produced a number of slideshows and videos which can be found on the Dragon Sanctuary Video Page.
Some of these are just slides set to music, some contain slides and video while the more recent ones are video only.
'Dragon Sanctuary Video' is neither a club or a company, it's just the name I produce my videos under.
Some have asked why there's background music on the railway videos because they'd prefer to hear the locomotives,
so would I but sadly that's not always possible. The camera audio track is sometimes unusable because of
excessive wind noise or loud and inappropriate comments by people standing near me. So I replace it with music.
Here's a thought, if you see someone using a video camera, keep quiet if you're near them because you could ruin their video.

Dragon Sanctuary Blog.
This is intended to be a companion site to the Dragon Sanctuary. Quite often I have thought it would be nice to be able to
offer a few words of explanation or comment about the photographs and videos I add to the Dragon Sanctuary, but there is not
really the space to do this here on the website pages. The blog is the answer I have come up with and as the main content of
the website is photographs of railways the main content of the blog will be photography and railways, but not necessarily in
that order. Other topics may appear as well of course. visit the blog.

Why Dragon Sanctuary?
The answer to that is far too long a story to put here.
The short answer being that I like dragons.

Where are the Dragons?
Some can be found hiding on various pages throughout the site.
The City of London Dragons have their own page here.
Most of the smoke breathing, er, creatures, can be found on the railway pages.
