In this video blog I work a few different compositions of a New Forest valley scene in beautiful golden hour light.
The 2016 New Forest and Hampshire County Show brought together its usual vast array of people, animals and machines which form the integral parts of our rural way of life. It was as popular as ever this year, helped by mostly dry weather and around 95,000 people descended on New Park near Brockenhurst to enjoy the festival atmosphere. Here are some of our favourite moments from this year.
Perhaps in some ways 2014 was the year I fell back in love with photography. Not that I ever disliked it before then, but over the preceding 18 months perhaps a certain staleness was creeping in. But moving to the New Forest permanently in December 2013 re-connected me with nature and gave my photography renewed purpose. Here are ten images that hopefully capture that re-kindling.
As winter started to bite in the UK, I decided to head for warmer climes and fulfil a long-held desire to visit Morocco and in particular the Atlas Mountains, the highest mountain range in North Africa and gateway to the Sahara desert beyond. As this was my first trip to the area I didn’t have a specific plan other than to try and get acquainted with the mountains and the villages of the Berber people who call them home.
