MFPOTW – RED

Winter shot of the beech tree at the  Bolehill quarry in Peak District. It was winter and this little tree shouted at me. I’m very happy how Kodak rendered the colours…

Have you been to the Bolehill Quarry?

MFPOTW – Frosty morning

Rays of the first light of the day are touching the frost. Mornings like this are the best.

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?

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 🙂

Are you frustrated when you are waiting for the light and nothing happens?

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….”.
