When I photograph, what I’m really doing is seeking answers to things.

MFPOTW – The quarry reflection

I found this little spot when I was walking along in Bolehill quarry in Peak District. It was winter and I liked how dead bracken reflected in the pool. I’m very happy how Kodak rendered the colours. Shot maybe needs a little bit of crop from the top, but at this point, I’m not sure …

What do you think shout I crop it tighter?

Let me know below!

MFPOTW – Waiting

Most of my landscape photography is about waiting. Waiting for the right condition and light to make that exposure.

This shot is from below Stanage Edge in fabulous Peak District. Unfortunately just before a sunrise belt of clouds came and the light did not happen. I like the shot anyway 🙂

I made a book with Saal Digital.

How was the experience? Here is the story.

Somewhere on the internet, most likely on Facebook, I found the advertisement. It said something like: “We need photographers to test out products….”.

MFPOTW – In the mist

MFPOTW – In the mist

Early morning shot from Peak District. Unfortunately, there was no light . Instead, I had lots of mist to play with.

Shot on Kodak Ektar100 and with focus softened by mist I’m quite pleased with this one.

Do you like to shoot in the mist?

Edward S. Curtis – Self-portrait Published in 1910, possibly earlier.

To the oft-asked question, “What camera or lens do you use?” I can only reply “I couldn’t tell to save my soul—it is enough for me to know that I have something that will make pictures and that it is in working order.”

MFPOTW – Bathing in the morning light (Peak District edition)

MFPOTW – Bathing in the morning light (Peak District edition).

Early winter morning at Ramshaw Rocks in beautiful Peak District UK. 

The exact moment when whole Ramshaw rocks were bathing in winter sunrise light. I love those moments. The composition is not the greatest but I like the sense of light on this picture. As usual Kodak Ektar 100 did not disappoint.

Have you been at Ramshaw Rocks or The Roaches? What did you like the best?
