I must admit I love our climate, were lucky here in the UK nothing too extreme a little bit of everything, apart from the wind, don't like the wind no good for tripod and long exposures. I know we've had flooding in the west and south of the country and I feel for them, I live in the north east of the country and we moan when we get hit by floods but nothing to write home about. Anyway this gets me on to light before and after bad weather, because when you have the light you also have the mood, where would we be without it, as one of the shots below will hopefully show, shot in the rain in the Lake District (Elterwater). It's just recently I've started to try and shoot the Landscape more seriously, as before this I would shoot the streets, but I find it's getting a bit harder as everyone gives you the eye and most are on there phones "boring" plus I think I lost my nerve a bit.So I'll return to the landscape enjoy the countryside and coast and take my time. Thanks This was shot just outside of Elterwater in the rain, for me at least, the dark tones to the lighter tones in the background work quite well. Same location as above, no direct light but the mood of the rain clouds makes it for me. St Abb's Head Last light of the day Stormy Cloud (Fife Scotland) Somewhere in Wales near (Tywyn) So for me it's all about the light and mood of an image even before I press the shutter, as it should be for all landscape photographers.
