Photographer's Note

I have spent the last 6 weeks looking at photographs and uploading some of my own to Trek Earth. I have enjoyed the opportunity to comment/critique others photos. While you can enjoy looking at photographs in a book or gallery having to put into words what it is you appreciate about a picture requires thought and consideration and is a really valuable exercise.
This writing along with the really helpful and supportive comments I have received for many of my own postings is helping me sort out what and how I want to photograph. Circumstances are currently preventing me travelling far from home and while I could post photos from previous trips my current interest in improving my own work means I am revisiting local settings and posting current work. I am finding that planning when to go and seeing the same coastal and river areas at different stages of the tide and in differing lights and weather is offering great opportunity to experiment with technique.
My apologies for the lack of variety in settings but I am hopeful that travel later in the year will give me the opportunity to apply what I am learning in differing locations. One other result of all this looking at photos is that I am becoming more self critical. Unless I get out even more and until the weather improves this is going to result in fewer postings then over the last 6 weeks.
These sea defences are close to home and I have photographed them often. Never though at high tide in winter afternoon sun with a northerly gale blowing down the coast. It was great to be outdoors but care was needed with the equipment.
