Chesil beach, Dorset, England, UK

I've taken lots of pictures of Chesil beach in the past...but I keep coming back...

The area along the coast here is a great walk and there are many views all along the 'beach'.

The view here is from the mainland looking across the lagoon that is formed by the beach (that you can see here) that is permanently detached from the mainland....if that makes sense....you will have to google it to see a birds eye view of it.

Along the beach that you can see are lots of little huts and things and people fishing...but here I liked the dents and textures of the sand at this point.

Taken at dawn, the air was perfectly still and comfortably warm.  So it was very peaceful and quiet.  The hikers, walkers and holidaymakers hadn't got up yet!

At this time of day, you have all the time in the world to engage with the landscape and take photos that capture my imagination in some way...

After learning compositional  techniques including the ‘rule of thirds’ the next thing to do is to find something to compose with your camera, and that is where visualization comes in…

In photography as in life, there is a yin and a yang to the way things tend to work out

So when I am told one thing, I think the other, or at least I ask why.

When I am told to plan my photographic compositions ahead of time, like a day or week in advance, I frown and scratch my head.

As an outdoors photographer it is impossible to only ever pre-conceive my photography days or weeks  in advance, sometimes spontaneity and intuition are required.

After all, I see now, so I photograph now.

After I read about Ansel Adams, including his version of visualizing an image, and I realised that I had my own version, so here it is in all its glory…

Sunset along a countrylane...

This is another view taken on a bicycle, just ambling through the countrylanes, avoiding the large roads...and it's as if no one live in the UK!!

These countrylanes are always empty of traffic and are heaven for a cycletourist...and then every now and then a view presents itself, like this one....and that makes photography very easy.

Even if you saw a view in a car whilst whizzing around this bend....would you have stopped a car to take the picture? I can only say that I probably wouldn't...this view is not spectacular enough to stop, park, get out....blah blah blah...too much hassle..!  But not on a bicycle....stopping to take a photograph is a very nice excuse to stop and have a rest, as well as take in the atmosphere and just breathe in the fresh air......

Somewhere near Devizes, Wiltshire, UK

Dusk over the Atlantic Ocean...

This is sundown last year (almost exactly a year ago today).  I love the darkness that washes over the landscape when the sun goes down.

All the heat is taken out of the air, and the birds have gone home to roost...and any hikers and walkers have scrambled off home, leaving only the peace and quiet...and the gentle lapping of the sea against the rocks

The actual location is The cornwall coastline, not far from Sennen.  This was taken from the South West Coastal Path...and you can plonk yourself just about anywhere at this time of day and squeeze out a photograph!

Two fishermen fishing at dusk.

These two looked like they were settled inside their waterproof waders for the foreseeable future as they cast their lines out as the night drew in.

Minutes before, the beach was awash with sounds of children and families playing...and then, just like birds roosting...they all disappeared...leaving the fishermen and the photographers!

And a few minutes later it was dark....so I have no idea if they caught anything.....

Blandford Forum High Street, Dorset, England, UK

This photograph was taken whilst cycletouring through Dorset in England and beyond…

This photograph is really just a snap, taken whilst stuck in a traffic jam in the middle of the day….I think everyone in the town and on a lunch break, had decided to get in their cars and drive….!

So, idling away the time whilst resting my weary limbs on a traffic island in the middle of the gridlocked road, I pointed my camera slightly upwards to avoid the eyesore of the cars, and captured the rooftops and tower against a rather bland sky.

I quite liked the composition though….and although the sky was featureless, it is amazing how much detail is sitting there waiting to be utilised should the photographer so wish.


On another note I am currently converting a free ebook I wrote into a series of blog posts on my website. The ebook is called Creatively Composed and is free in return for a newsletter signup….

....So feel free to download the book and tell me what you think..! It contains all my compositional ‘secrets’….or just read the blog posts...

Sunset along the Cornwall coastline, UK

I love colour in the landscape, and for me this composition really shows off the late evening sun, but without actually looking at the sky at all.  All the colour from the late evening Sun  is reflecting in the water....

It's a very simple composition....but I really enjoyed taking this photo...just because it was so peaceful...and the compositions presented themselves to me and all I had to do was press the shutter!

For me, the root of all photography is composition. 

Composition is king, and how to compose for a particular situation is key to good photography.

And let's be frank and honest....You don’t need expensive gear to take good pictures, what you need is a good eye and good composition.

And....everyone has a good eye and composition is learnable (by everyone).

But if you want to create that classic black and white image, you first need to get the composition right.........

This is an excerpt of an article about how I compose photographs on my blog.....to read the whole article, click here....

Watching the sun go down.

There is nothing like a warm sunset!   You don't have to get up early....you are wide awake...and it's very peaceful....and you can go back into town for fish and chips!!   There are so many advantages that a sunset has over a sunrise!

This is a fairly standard composition, although I had no idea the weather would be as sunset friendly as it was.  But I put my camera on a tripod and sat and clicked the shutter every now and then!

I do love the way the light dances amongst the clouds though...however many sunrises and sunsets that I will see in my lifetime, they will never bore me.

Looking out across the Atlantic Ocean.

The islands in the photo (or rocky outcrops) are the Brisons, and sit just off the coast of Cornwall.  They do have a gap between them, but not at this angle.

I took this in the evening just as the light dimmed into sunset.

I just like the colour....not a photo to be converted into black and white....this is a celebration of the rich evening light that you get at Golden Hour...

It's a 13 second exposure which smooths out the sea a bit...but it has enough texture and detail to sit side by side with the clouds above.

And for anyone interested, I have a free ebook about composition here...

Lone figure on the beach, Ostend, Belgium.

Beaches are great for photography...eventually a couple of people or a lone figure will pop up onto the horizon.

This day was windy, really really windy....so my lens was permanently covered in sand or sea spray....so it was difficult to just wander around.

Beach landscapes are minimalist, but also in theor own way full of details and textures and movement.

For this image though, although I like the textures and patterns in the sand, with the pools of water...it is the figure on the horizon that has prompted me to process this and post it here.

I have a free ebook available on my website that describes how I see and compose images like the ones you see here....
