New Project – It’s early days
It’s very early days as far as my new photographic project is concerned. For a variety of reasons I have only ventured out on a few occasions with my camera since the turn of the year, however this will change as the daylight hours start to get a little longer.
Each trip has been very worthwhile as I start to familiarise myself with the area I have chosen to photograph. Even if the conditions aren’t perfect, the shutter is always released. Sometimes the purpose is to simply record a place and a composition I would like to revisit when the light is more favourable.
For the time being I thought I would share with you a small selection of images which only make me want to get out and about even more!
I should add that I have split toned these images however this may not be the final treatment. The jury is still out and it’s a decision that doesn’t need to be made right now. Rather like sketches made by an artist – they are experimental and may not truly represent the finished body of work.
As I have mentioned previously this is a long term project and I am just at the beginning.
To fully appreciate these images do click on the picture itself and a larger version will open in a new window.

A lovely series, especially the 3 water(?) tanks.
Thanks Vicki. I am fairly sure they are in fact grain silos. Either way it makes for a pleasing mono image.

These are excellent. I can’t put my finger on it, but I find the first shot to be absolutely engrossing. I think it reminds me of walks in the Genesee Valley when I was very young.
Thank you Robert. I am pleased you find first image engrossing and that it brings back memories from earlier times.
A solitary tree in winter always looks good, so my favourite has to be the one of the field with the telegraph pole.
Thanks for your comment. The inclusion of the telegraph pole was essential to the picture in my view so I am pleased you like it. Many people would have composed the shot in such as way to leave it out, but it’s part of the landscape and that’s what I am trying to depict in this project. Thanks again.
