Photographing the Forests of Olympic National Park

Hall of Mosses Trail, Olympic National Park

This week, I had planned to share more of the images from my recent outing to Blackpool. But then something happened, and I became side-tracked. I wish I could tell you what it was, but I don’t know. This seems to happen to me with increasing regularity. You might think it’s my age, but I … Continue reading Photographing the Forests of Olympic National Park

A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

Earlier this week, Tuesday to be precise, I headed over to Blackpool with a friend. Blackpool is a great location for photography and often produces amazing sunsets at this time of year. As the conditions looked promising, we thought this would be worth trying. Whilst I enjoyed the morning, my shots weren’t up to much. … Continue reading A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

Peak District Winter Landscape

I’ll start by apologising that I wasn’t able to post last week. I simply had too much work to find the time. This week, after a week of rain here, I thought that I would share a winter image from the Peak District that I’ve just processed. Well, two images to be accurate, because I … Continue reading Peak District Winter Landscape

Another Misty Landscape from Bole Hill Quarry

Last week, I shared an image that I had taken at Bole Hill Quarry in the Peak District. This week it’s the turn of another from the same shoot. It’s difficult to describe quite how wet and unpleasant it was when I took this shot, although worse rain was still to come. The only thing … Continue reading Another Misty Landscape from Bole Hill Quarry

Wet & Misty in the Peak District

On Wednesday, I arrived home from a trip to the Lake District where the colours were turning autumnal. Feeling motivated to get out for some photography, I checked the weather forecast. I could see that a mist was predicted in some parts of the Peak District the following day. It looked like there would be … Continue reading Wet & Misty in the Peak District

The Best Sunset

In September 2020, I was fortunate to witness the best sunset I’ve ever seen. Whilst I have seen lots of dramatic and beautiful sunsets, this one sticks in my memory as the best. The colours were so vivid and lasted so long. I remember the sky colouring up at least an hour before sunset and … Continue reading The Best Sunset

Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

Here in the North West of England, the weather has turned decidedly chilly in the past couple of weeks. Whilst it doesn’t often feel warm where I live, the house feels more like a fridge at the moment. It may have something to do with the 24” thick solid stone walls. With the feel of … Continue reading Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

One thing that I’ve become almost obsessed with recently is creating natural colour in my landscape photos. Because of this, I’ve found myself reworking some of last year’s photos using the latest editing tools. Here’s a great example from the Panasonic G9. Surprise View in the Peak District. Panasonic G9. I’ve reworked this several times … Continue reading Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

The Excellent Panasonic G9 High Resolution Mode

Last week I mentioned that I’ve been doing more work using the high resolution mode of my Panasonic G9. In this week’s post I want to share some of my thoughts about using this for landscape photography. Here’s a recent example from last week, shooting with the G9 in the 80Mpixel mode. After sunset at … Continue reading The Excellent Panasonic G9 High Resolution Mode

The Best Light for Landscape Photography

In Friday’s post last week, I shared a photo I had taken the week before, even though I had been photographing the day before. Now that I’ve had a little more time to process those images, I want to share one today. Higger Tor from Carl Wark in the Peak Disitrct Capturing the Image I’m … Continue reading The Best Light for Landscape Photography
