Samaria Gorge

Friday, October 24th, 2008

What’s your perfect walk? Downhill all the way? Natural spring water breaks every mile? Hot sunshine? Little stone sculptures lining the trails. A cold beer and a dip in the sea followed by a brisk, coast-hugging ferry journey back to the car? You would probably like the Samaria gorge walk then.

Holy Island and Clauchlands Point from Merklands Point, Arran, Scotland

Cir Mhor from Glen Rosa, Arran, Scotland

I am starting to realise that to get any better at landscape photography, that the next level requires a big increase in the investment in not only time and effort, but also in (counter-intuitive) anti-social behavior. To get the magical shots means pre-visualising a shot, then going back to the location in ideal lighting (sunrise/sunset) at least once. On this trip this Easter trip, this would mean being on the hill at 4.30am, and therefore quickly using up any accrued brownie points with the already very patient other half!

Old ruin, hazy hills, Snowdonia. Even in mid-March, this felt like one of those perfect summer days that you wish would never end.

Forest panorama, graphic details.

The original of this image is made up of three images blended to together to form a very high-resolution landscape image. Graphic icons added later.

New Brighton lighthouse.

I think this lighthouse is probably a much photographed spot on the Wirral coast. I must time going back here with lovely ‘golden hour’ light or perhaps when there are stormy clouds in the sky.

I have incuded this shot as reminder to try more of this technique, i.e. the contrast of the motion blurred birds and the pin-sharp foreground elements.

Dispite the overcast skies yesterday, I spotted a enough potential in New Brighton to justify popping back today, this time in bright sunshine.

View from Glencaple, Solway Firth, Dumfries and Galloway. I had to wade through ankle deep mud (gloop) to get this shot. I wanted to go further onto the mud flats, but the mud threatened to get much deeper really quite quickly.

Warm early morning light pooring into an disused outbuilding, adjoining the Hendre Isaf Basecamp bunkhouse, Betws-y-Coed, North Wales

Snowdon from Llynau Mymbyr. This is much used road-side photography spot, lazily captured in mid-morning light. At sunrise though, Snowdon glows bright orange from this location. I must go back.
