My Passion for Landscape Photography
Let's face it, living where I do it is hard to ignore the glorious countryside around me. I have the New Forest on one side, Purbeck's on the other and an enormous beach in the middle. What isnt to like! But, with our very busy lives- when do we have time to stand and watch its splender? That is my motivation.
The best time of seeing this gorgeous place of ours is at sunrise. Having the place to yourself and listening to the birds doing their morning chorus, is in its self enough motivation but trying to portray what you see for those couple of seconds when the sun goes over the horizon is something else. Everything has to work with you in getting that stunning shot. Most of them you can not do anything about, like the colour of the sky, the tides etc but getting at the right place and the right time with the right composition is all in my control and that is hopefully what comes across in the pictures
Here is a selection of my pictures taken in the last couple of years. They are mostly taken locally around where live.The badge on most of them is with a monthly competition with the Guild of Photographers.
