That might sound a little fatuous but the grass or the light won’t necessarily be greener 1000 miles away, you get my drift? It’s so easy to think great pictures are only made with ultra-expensive equipment on the other side of the world. I am just as guilty of familiarity breeding contempt as anyone.
A few wise words
The more one looks,
the more one sees.
And the more one sees,
the better one knows where to look.

It has been queried why a person with few observational and abstraction skills to make a significant visual design will suddenly gain them after travelling a long way from home, if they did not already have them before they left home.
This picture “Wooscoombe Wood Lane” is a 15 minute bicycle ride from home. It combines Infrared capture with Selenium and Gold Toning on a foggy day.
Being a photographer is about understanding the light and conditions and how to use them to your advantage.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog, be brave and leave a comment or two. It won’t hurt I promise, you might even enjoy it.
