Getting that feeling of place and time in landscape photography is a gift. I am not sure if it’s best expressed in black and white or colour but I know a bucolic scene when I see one. I hope to do more landscapes next summer.

This is a view at the entrance to the nature reserve I frequent. In fact I have taken a lot of shots of birds from just this spot. The black and white has a bit of a sketch element to it, an effect I quite like here. Always nice to photograph a place you love.

My opportunities for landscape photography this year have been few, but I have taken advantage of them. I have tried many of the tricks the articles talk about like leading lines, foreground objects etc.. After a while you get an idea of what works for you, the same for editing. Learn, but make it yours.

In photography there is an an aspect of reportage, but nothing is ever perfect. We look for symmetry, leading lines and catchlights etc., sometimes more implied than present, hopefully having the desired effect. I often feel perfection is the enemy of the good in photography, that sometimes the audience should do a modicum of work to fill in the blanks.

These tree photographs were taken in early spring, when there was still a chill in the air. I liked the abstract nature of the canopy; little has been done to to enhance the photograph. The original files were taken in black and white on my Fuji camera.

I did a couple of series on trees at two different parks, this is the first. We tend to ignore trees as merely a feature in a landscape. I thought I would try for something a bit different using contrast and shadows.

Even without the ducks this would be quite an interesting scene, calm and placid. I took about 20 photographs but only one had all the elements I wanted, especially the ducks in a good position. Sometime patience is rewarded.
