Anticipating Autumn

Anticipating Autumn Anticipating Autumn Anticipating Autumn

My favourite time of year is fast approaching, I can feel it in the air everyday now.  The keener eyed among you will notice a change to the revolving pictures on my homepage to reflect the new season.  It will come as no surprise that autumn is my favourite season, most landscape photographers favour either this season or winter.  Everything seems to come together in the autumn for photographers; the days are shorter making sunrises so much more achievable without the constant tiredness that accompanies a landscape photographer throughout the long summer days.

With those shorter days comes a much better quality of light, making rich landscape photographs possible right through the day.  The colder weather forecasts bring the promise of mist, frost and dramatic skies; all perfect conditions for photographs.  All over the countryside the changing season is evident, bracken covered mountains and moorlands change to beautiful brown tones, while woodlands explode with yellows, gold and red leaves.  Autumn really is a fantastic season for photography, and as always, I am completely thrilled in anticipation of its arrival.

Having said that, from a personal photographic perspective autumn can be a frustrating season.  This is my busiest time of year, but not for taking photographs.  Over the next few months my workshops kick up a gear; as well as having a busy 1-2-1 schedule I will be away in the beautiful Lake District leading group workshops with Dawn 2 Dusk Photography.  Before then, I am heading out to USA to again lead a group workshop in Yosemite and the Eastern Sierra mountains for Tatra Photography.  Hopefully I will get chance to grab a few photographs myself from these trips which will appear on my website over the coming months.

To sign-off the season here is a small selection of my favourite images from this summer.  Look forward to seeing you in the autumn!
