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

Coincidence Can be Amazing

I hope that you missed me last Friday. I didn’t post any images because I took the week off. I wanted to finish building some steps and I also went on a walking holiday to the Isle of Man. Whilst there, I shot this woodland image. Isle of Man woodland trail I spotted this as … Continue reading Coincidence Can be Amazing

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

The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama

Yesterday, I was wondering what image to share in today’s blog post. At the time I was rewriting an old tutorial for my website on stitching panoramas in Lightroom. This got me thinking about publishing a YouTube video on the subject (which I’m now working on). As part of developing the video idea, I began … Continue reading The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama

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

Curse of the UV Filter

I was out last night in the Peak District, photographing the landscape at Surprise View with a friend. We hoped there might still be some heather in flower although we knew it was a little late. As it happens, you could still find a few clumps that looked reasonable, but you had to be prepared … Continue reading Curse of the UV Filter

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
