Christmas Day out.

I got lots of “Merry Christmases” on the way down from the morning shoot at the Storr. But I had it all to myself, as far as I am aware, for the first two hours. Unless of course other photographers were hiding in the mist? Here’s what I managed to get:

Oh the weather was very fickle and I though I won’t see anything but, still, I waited and waited and here it was for the few brief moments. Happy days and a happy walk back.

Merry Christmas everybody! This is how I like to spend it.

Where does the time go…?!

I don’t know why exactly I needed a break from photography? Maybe I was just preoccupied with other things? Maybe I was feeling like I was not doing it “for myself” at that time. Suddenly everyone was taking pictures and I guess it put me off a bit. I think I had to come to terms with that and learn to do it for myself again and not to compete with anyone.

Now it feels right again. I can do what I want to do and photograph the way I want to photograph.

I was glad to get my butt into gear again and catch a good sunrise a couple of weeks back. Though I nearly didn’t get anything decent. The chosen shot nearly didn’t happen.

I packed up my gear and headed home dissatisfied but when I glanced behind me on the way back to the car, I spotted a possible composition using the fence. And so I unpacked and set up again for that last shot. It worked. I was happy with it and headed home to see the image on the big screen. It got a seal of approval from my partner. He always tells me straight :-).
