Location: Malham Cove
I’m not a full time landscape photographer. I cannot always chose the days I go out to shoot. British weather is often lousy. Can you tell where i’m going here?
The rain on that Saturday morning that session was relentless. It was soon accompanied by it’s friend, the wind. This made the session a battle for sure. I had equipped myself with all weather proof clothing but this didn’t help the concentration levels and constant wiping of the front element. I wasn’t too concerned with my camera body and lens as both weather proof. My video camera, Canon M50, was not. This made into a difficult, challenging but yet strangely rewarding photography session.
Part of the reason I opted to spend my money on a good camera body and lenses is times like I had at Malham Cove on this very wet morning. I was confident in my equipment. The vlogging was restricted however. I am a very determined individual and I wanted to produce a video and still come away with some images. Some may say i’m crazy, I have no issue with that. I like my vlogs to have a good story and what the rain did that day is to create interest and hopefully bring inspiration that we shouldn’t stay indoors just because it’s bad weather.
The trees in the images below were a good selection of opportunities in the area. The place is not just about the limestone path and 80 metre drop. There are plenty of knarly trees to be explored. I will return here very shortly to have another go when hopefully the weather will not be as distracting.
