I don’t think I like photographing landscapes…

… I think detail is my photographic thing.

I like landscapes and potraits – some of my own but especially some done by other people – but in my own photography I really like to capture a detail that you may have to look at for a moment or two to work out. Here are two photos I took back in May, but have only just put into my RedBubble shop.

I like the backdrop of the silvery water highlights, against the strong vertical and horizontal lines, overlaid with the diamond mesh, whether a shadow image or reality. The monochrome nature of the subject – the Bristol Channel usually looks brown/grey, metallic or pearly – adds to the abstract quality, I think.

Editing was minimal with these: a little cropping was about all that was needed.

Hopefully, even if you prefer a landscape yourself, you’ll agree these make good images!
