I came, I saw,
I photographed.

“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart, and head.”
-Henri Cartier-Bresson
may I add, “and the Soul.” – GQ

I have been taking photographs of landscapes & nature for many years. Taking photographs of the beauty & magnificence of the natural world has always been an interest of mine.

What we see and what the camera sees can often be quite different, and it is this difference that draws me to capturing scenes that lifts the spirits, and be truly grateful that we live in such a beautiful world.

Being mindful of the world around as is, I believe , that most essential skill in the photographers arsenal. Mindful of fleeting moments, the small things that often go unnoticed , the changes of light, the patterns at light, and mindful of the planning required for that “perfect” shot. That said, I don’t really believe there is a “perfect” shot of anything. Every photographer is creating their unique view of the world and is never to be repeated – a unique capture in time.

Photography takes little time to learn the basics, but a lifetime to master. The tools of photography are like a painters brush, paint and canvas. It is the photographers imagination, insight & perception as like an artistic painter, that brings any photograph to life.

I am always discovering new ways to express my joy of photography which creates new ways of looking at things. Photography is a beautiful endeavour, with every photographer producing different interpretations of the same scene. It is their unique view of the world. My viewpoint, which I am sharing with you through my photographs and comments, is hopefully one that you will appreciate.
