Find your place

Landscape photography is about capturing the world around us at any given moment. How we choose to capture it is based around a number of factors including skill, a good eye for a composition and an emotional connection. The ability to relate that emotional connection on to a sensor/film is important for the photograph to work. The choice of location also has a large influence of what emotional state the photographer is at that moment. This story is about a little place in the Yorkshire Dales. A place where I feel at ease and in my comfort zone. A place where my creativity flourishes.

Malham/The Return

Location: Malham Cove

The last time I visited Malham Cove, I was met with very wet conditions with the added element of gusty wind. That wasn’t ideal of course as a landscape photographer trying to come back with the goods. I promised a few of my YouTube channel subscribers and viewers that I would return shortly. My eye was attracted by a cluster of tree which had formed some rather interesting shapes. A return to the location was definitely on the cards when the conditions were more favourable. This morning session was about the return and the better light that had come with me.

Patience is a gift and also a very important attribute to have in landscape photography. There are many times when I have been disappointed but this has been balanced with the few occasions that I have been pleased. Happiness comes in all forms but for me in landscape photography, that feeling of elation is when the conditions and composition fall into place at the right time. I do believe I shot my favourite image of the year.
