In order of personal favrouites
Landscape photography has been my main focus over the last few years. I started in my local areas and expanded my reach, visiting more places around the country. My largest project was a trip to Wales last year, where I visited famous waterfalls in the hope to capture a new side of them. Amongst these, holidays have provided me with new places to take photos, such as Amsterdam and Thailand.
This photo was taken nearby to my accommodation and was the last stop of the day. A 10-minute walk down a narrow path led me to the open water in front of this waterfall. From the ground, I couldn't find a working composition, to my right was a large hill with a drop off into the waters. I decided to clamber up this and get a better viewpoint. Once I was up I had an amazing view of the water and this ended up being my favorite picture from the trip.
Amsterdam is one of my favorite places to take photos, this photo was taken while walking around the canals. I was fascinated by the narrow canals and tall buildings, therefore I wanted to get an image of both. This spot is right next to the photographer's gallery and in winter the moon can be seen through the gap. This was taken on my Canon 7D and is a stitch of several different images.
I also experimented with layering images on this trip, for example, this photo of the trams. They evoke a sort of edgy feel which is true to Amsterdam's nightlife and combined with reversing and moving I think they really work. This was an experiment for me and most likely a one-time thing but was still a change from the usual.
This was around the time that I started taking photography seriously, it was a cold evening and I decided to take a visit to our local beach, Using no ND filters was a challenge and without HDR it was even harder. I waited for the sun to set so that the light was balanced, this was when a mother and her cygnets walked past from the nearby reserve. I had to adjust my shutter speed quickly and capture the image. This is one of my favorite images.
