Landscape photography in a forest in Northern Ireland

Over the last couple of weeks I have been doing commercial photography, wedding photography and all the associated editing. This morning I was supposed to be preparing materials for prospective wedding clients but… I heard the weather forecast. Today was to be the last sunny day for a week so let’s change plans. I’m a great believer that your schedule should be driven by you and not the other way round. Within a few miles from my home is a small but nicely diverse forest and with the promised sun shining I jumped in the car and this is the result of a very enjoyable hour in good autumn/winter bracing air. Perhaps not classic landscape photography but I wanted to convey the openness of a forest at this time of the year along with the colour, shadows, light and space.

For any photographers reading this all the photographs were taken with a 20mm lens on a full frame camera with minimal cropping. In my humble opinion the only way to go. Any comments you may have (good or bad) just drop a line in the comments box at the end of the post.

Chasing the light

It had intended to be a walk on the beach but the weather decided otherwise. Rather than just give up, go home and make a cup of tea I decided to wait it out just to see what the weather would do. On the north coast of Northern Ireland there is always the chance the weather will change quite quickly and with that the light also.

While I was watching through the rain I could see it clearing but at the same time another front moving in. In the short dry interlude I managed to get these two photographs. Beach weather no but the drama in the storm building and the short but dramatic piece of sunlight made it all worthwhile.
