The Corona virus pandemic has forced me to photograph locally whilst on short walks for exercise, so my output has been somewhat limited. Sometimes this has been frustrating but it has forced me to rediscover what is immediately around me and perhaps see things in a fresh way. It has also made me look back through my past catalogue of images and given me the opportunity to rework some of the images and realise the potential in other pictures that had been overlooked.
This picture of the moon rising over buttermere is an example of one that benefited from some reworking. Firstly I cropped it as a square which worked much better than the original picture and then I made some local adjustments to exposure which greatly improved the overall photograph.
Revisiting images is something that I seldom did as I was always looking for a fresh picture, once the photograph had been worked on and published on my website and instagram it rarely had a second consideration unless it was going to be printed or put into a calendar. Current circumstances have made me re-examine my pictures and in some cases that has been a good thing.

Photographing the landscape around me is a very important part of my life. I frequently feel compelled to spend some time out there enjoying the beauty of nature and trying where possible to make an image that reflects that majesty of my surroundings here in the Lake District.
My aim with this blog is to share some of my thoughts and pictures in the hope that they encourage you.
