Step outside your door and look

Summer is arguably not the best season for landscape photographers. Sunset and sunrise shoots are for the really committed snappers, trying both consecutively leaves very little sleep.


Also, the landscape can be a little featureless with the light somewhat too contrasty, but stop complaining and look. There are always good images any time and place. My life long mantra has always been when asked where is the best place to take great images? "step outside your door and look"


The following are some of my recent images from the last 4 months:


Early spring in a valley of Black Mountains, a heavy frost reflects the glow of sunrise.


Three Cliffs Bay near Swansea. A grey day delivers soft light in this estuary.


Looking down from the wall of Graig Goch Dam. The early morning sun highlighting the shoreline of the reservoir.


Wild Garlic signals Springtime: at last...


Another Springtime spectacle – bluebell woods near Crickhowell



Early summer evening – after a grey day the afterglow from the set sun reflects off the cloud base and paints the landscape in a subtle mauve.



The Elan Valley – one of my favourite locations for exploring, hiking and taking images.



Welsh Lamb – hello :-)


Hay Bluff "against the odds" – nautical twilight with a waxing crescent moon.



Misty morn...


Thank you for getting this far, I hope you enjoyed my images, please leave your comments or ask any questions below.

Akin to the athletic saying “no pain no gain”….who says landscape photographers are not a hardy bunch?

A stunning selection as always Peter ........ but I think almost as remarkable as the images are is you energy - the "getting up there & getting out there". Well done - please keep them coming.

It's sometimes very very difficult Neville I must admit, dragging myself out of bed, but it is so ingrained now I switch off the "other voice" and just get on with it.

I really enjoyed these images Peter, the first one is really lovely! I have been looking at a number of English photographers lately and the woodland/forest photographers in particular - that is an area I would love to explore! (Your woodland images are also great!)


The Swartland is looking beautiful at this time of year!

Thanks William, the landscape is very different here and I must admit I enjoy the change from SA. However I also miss the adventures and the wildness of South Africa.

Nice images Peter, I particularly like the first one. Some familiar places too, agree its more difficult to get decent shots at this time of year, but not impossible.
