and ideas …
I love landscape photography !
However … once home on the screen often what I see is just another snapshot and not at all how I envisioned or felt at the time, for me that’s not enough.
I really really want the outcome after looking and processing an image to express the moment . It’s a tall order and not easy .
Experimenting with ICM seems to have hit the button with me on more than one occasion, and I get it . feel it .
With a good helping of some music I’m able to forge ahead and work it all out creating different moods by way of processing techniques and edits with the particular photographs I’ve taken .
This week I’ve been hopping in and out of the car locally almost desperate for THE shot . Sometimes one can try too hard and come home feeling disappointed , but it’s all part of the journey . * note to self .. remember that .
I’ve realised much as I love the expansive view it perhaps pays off to be a little more open and wonder more about what if ….
Yesterday is a case in point , a trip into Worcester with no real expectation I took this quick ICM shot of a young woman walking along a pathway strewn with bright Autumn leaves . Such a surprise … I had a feeling there would be something to work with once home .
A few weeks ago in the Algarve looking out across the rocks into the late sunlight became this …
But landscape … aah it’s there … at the right time waiting … like me …
This was last week at The Tump as I call it …
… sitting on that bench with a view I revelled in seeing the golden light unfold across the sky , revealing mist filled hollows and fields touched with frost . It was a good morning to be up there , but glimpsing that rising chimney smoke made me think back home a certain someone might be up the kettle ready and boiling :) I was soon on my way .
So much to ponder … and lots more pictures to be taken … but hey
It’s Friday !
Here comes the weekend … I hope you have a wonderful one x
*Poppy .. yes .. somehow it just seems right here even though it’s a retuned blog :-)
- A big shout out to Maureen … I’d really love to know if you broke through that fence . Sadly no previous email works and apparently no way to contact on your blog x
