Land and Stones

This small selection of black and white photographs from the British Isles landscapes is one that I intend to expand because the varied landscape of the UK continues to be an inspiration to me. I try to explore an area thoroughly so that I can anticipate how it will look in a particular season and time of day. This involves a good deal of walking and climbing, though I must admit to have done my fair share of road-side photography especially in Scotland. Walking in such beautiful surroundings are a reward in themselves and even in the most foul weather there is always something to be seen and learnt: I will even use bad weather as a chance to reconnoitre a new area for future photographic visits.

The waterfalls of the Hepste and Nedd fechan rivers in south Wales vary greatly with rainfall and are often shaded by a canopy of overhanging trees, making the timing of a visit an important consideration.

The weather on the west coast of Scotland and the Isle of Skye in particular is almost reliably warm and settled in early June when the peaks of the Cuillin hills can present more of a sunburn hazard than the traditional Scottish 'trench-foot'. Additionally it is too early for the blood-thirsty midges to have appeared in any numbers. I have not had an opportunity to visit Skye in winter so that is something I must attend to.

Individual prints can be purchased, unmounted by arrangement - drop me an email to discuss.
