Peppercombe Beach

Peppercombe Beach

A holiday break in North Devon proved much more than just an escape from reality, it gave me the chance to dip into the fine art of coastal photography. My Dad will always tell you that I do very much enjoy my lie-ins, I really do have too many, so I have to admit that I wasted the mornings. In a way I regret it now but the evenings proved to fill me with ideas of slow exposure landscape photography. Now if anyone of you have ever met me I would always tell you that I am not much of a landscape photographer and I would always point you in the direction of my Dad, who is an inspirational photographer(to me anyway), and say that’s the man to speak to. But I felt it was time for a change and having a beach about 20 minutes walk from the cottage meant that I could concentrating on evening exposures and creating that dreamy atmosphere that I had pictured in my head. It took a great deal of time to capture the chosen image, and I usually ended up walking back to the cottage at about 11 pm, but I feel that it is a very strong contender for my best landscape photograph so far. I am not sure why but it seemed to convey my feelings and emotions rather than a planned image which didn’t evoke the gently ebb and flow of the tide. Now please don’t expect to see a large amount of landscape photographs come rolling out after this post because although I might not be a committed landscape photographer I am simple someone who enjoys capturing the landscape in which I roam,searching for the wildlife which call it home.
