I don’t normally comment on my own work, but I do like this image. Not sure why, but maybe that’s the appeal.
Yesterday was a beautiful bright and crisp winters day and so I set out in search of 3 trees I noticed some time ago with the idea of photographing them. That’s what I do. If I see something and the light isn’t right, I make a mental note and return. When I reached the place where I thought I’d seen them, they had gone. I know I had the right location because I saw them after photographing the Prime Minister (shameless name drop, so would you). Not to feel too despondent, I shot this little bugger instead.
Sometimes I feel like I’ve been doing this job for a long, long time
Is it possible that too much detail can detract from the feel of a picture? These 2 pictures are of the same scene. Which one suggests Autumn more for you?

I know the possibility of this happening is extremely rare, but I feel it’s worth considering, however remote. Should you be driving to an extremely important business meeting and you get distracted by a great landscape possibility with a dramatic sky, don’t park up and vault a dry stone wall into a field of deep, deep heather which may hide a quagmire that could swallow you up to your knees. Arriving looking like a bog hopper could take some explaining. Bear it in mind however unlikely it may be.
