Where did Autumn go!

Where did Autumn go! Where did Autumn go! Where did Autumn go!

Big apologies for the lack of news updates in recent months, autumn has been an extremely busy season for me!  After the usual bad summer weather resulting in limited opportunities, autumn has offered up some memorable conditions for landscape photography.   Luckily I have been in some wonderful locations to make the most of the weather, and as a result captured some of my favourite images of the year.   For September and October  I was back up in one of my favourite places, the Lake District firstly for a week of photography and then leading two group workshops with Dawn 2 Dusk Photography.  It was a real thrill leading the participants to many of my favourite locations in the Lakes.  Soon after, I hopped on a plane bound for Slovakia to lead two more group workshops in the spectacular Tatra mountains, this time for Tatra Photography.  After some uncharacteristically poor mild weather days, the temperature dipped sharply and we were treated to a magnificent display of ice and snow for the remainder of the trip.

Back home in Devon for a few days, then I made the lengthy drive all the way up to Scotland for a week of photographic indulgence.  I had been desperate to revisit the Isle of Skye since my last trip in 2005, so was thrilled to finally get back up there in early November.  As ever the weather in this part of Scotland is challenging, but on this trip we were treated to some moments of pure magic.   Fortunately, we were in exactly the right places to make the most of the light, namely the other worldly landscapes of the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing. 

I am happy to be back home now for the Christmas break, and am looking forward to further adventures in 2013.  So far next year I am running group workshops in the Brecon Beacons, Iceland and then Yosemite to lead the first group workshop for Tatra Photography outside of Europe.  Six places sold within the first few hours of the workshop being announced, so if you would like to join me on this one you may want to book your place sooner rather than later! 

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.
