Even if I went several times to Dorset, all I knew was “just” Durdle Door. Don’t get me wrong, that place is still one of the best I’ve ever seen, but there’s much more than that. Even if spring isn’t ideal for photography in this county, it’s definitely worth a visit. Yellow fields everywhere, amazing coastlines and sunny days. I loved it!
In my opinion, the most beautiful thing about landscape photography isn’t the fact you see breathtaking places and travel a lot. It’s actually that it pushes yourself to go beyond your own limits. I am a very lazy person, pretty sensitive to the cold. Every morning it takes ages for me to wake up. Furthermore sport is not really my thing. I know, not exactly a nice picture of myself. But still, landscape photography makes me wake up in the middle of the night, makes me be outside fighting against strong wind gusts and walk along disconnected sloping tracks, while carrying a heavy backpack on my back. And you know what? I love it!
I can’t say Trevose head lighthouse is on top of my favourite spots in Cornwall, but I can’t even deny that here there's such a suggestive view, especially when the sky adds a pinkish atmosphere. Now, you can already imagine how beautiful can be the rest of the county…
240 seconds of exposure hoping there were no gusts moving the tripod. Fortune favors the bold!
A stunning view from Fleetwith Pike, in the Lake District.
Coming back to the same place and feeling amazed as it was the first time. That's the magic of light conditions.
Burst of colors
The calmness given by the ocean and the happy mood of its colours. I just love Cornwall.
The Cornish hospitality wasn't so pleasant that day, due to the very strong wind, which caused high waves crashing in front of us and even worse, our lenses.
But this didn't block us to take some shots, several squirts of water and finally a pint of beer in a cozy and warm pub facing the cliffs.
Into the wild
Just in time for the sunset
England is not very famous for being such a sunny and warm country. But not that day! When a friend of mine and I arrived to Eastbourne, East Sussex, it was really hot, like a typical day of summer in a mediterrenean country. And we were really missing that! So, we decided to enjoy the sun for a couple of hours and then walk to the cliffs for taking some photos. Without realizing it, we spent the entire afternoon sitted on the seafront while drinking Pimm's. We started walking toward the cliffs really late, but we were really lucky, because we arrived just in time for the sunset and this is what we found once there: a spectacular fireball going behind the cliffs. I didn't have so much time to spent for composition and preparing my tripod. I just wanted to capture the moment. And I think I did it!
