My Feet Were Still on the Public Footpath, Honest!

    Newer Older

    Oh, some shots have to be done, and this one just had to be. It’s the first shot from an evening chasing a sunset and bluebells, with a friend. We were on our way to an established wood and this was the starters to the main event, but I couldn’t resist contorting myself over a stone wall and under some barbwire to make this shot of somebody’s private bluebell woodland! My feet were still on the public footpath so I guess this shot is still legal, that is unless somebody places copyright on flowers and trees!

    Oh yes, one other thing that some of you may find interesting; I recently had a chat with a friend about some of my images and the stories behind them. Tim (Parkin) videoed it for his excellent new online magazine “Great British Landscapes” that he and Joe Cornish set up a few months ago. If you haven’t already seen the magazine then I highly recommend you take a look for some in-depth content from some skilled and accomplished photographers. My videos are in issue 13, link in my profile pages... I do recommend you take a look at the site and enjoy the fantastic content, (from the other photographers, naturally!)

    Oh and one last thing, myself and Antony Spencer (winner of the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2010) are running a long weekend seascape workshop in Cornwall this summer 5th 6th and 7th of August. So if you fancy an intensive inspirational weekend, take a look at my profile for the links... (End of personal plug)

      As good a bluebell shot as I have seen Jason, all the best locations are off the beaten (or public) tracks!

      Just trespass and be damned next time!
      In the interests of honest communication I will say that this seems slightly over-exposed in the upper half to me. I hesitate to say this to someone of your level of expertise, but what the hell, we've still got free speech ... haven't we?
      Really enjoy your shots ... and please feel free to ignore my possibly ill-informed remarks!
