Autumn photo workshops started!

My programme of autumn photography workshops has started, kicking off on 9th September with my Atlantic Coast Landscapes photography course, held at Hartland Quay, on Devon’s north coast.

We had some pretty mixed weather, with a rain shower before we started out from the car park, and another shortly after we returned at the end. Inbetween we had a mix of sunshine and cloud, which gave us quite a useful variation in the types of light. It was also pretty windy, so we had plenty of good surf to complement Hartland’s rugged Atlantic coastline.

Photography was a mix of sandy beach, rocks, a wonderful waterfall, and clifftop views, all of which worked quite well, with photography running throughout the afternoon right up until after sunset (though heavy cloud cover alas stopped us actually seeing a sunset!).

I’m very pleased to be able to announce that I’ve been asked to be the principal judge on this year’s annual Southwest Coast Path photography competition! The competition, run to promote the loveliness and importance of the landscapes along the southwest peninsula’s southwest coast path, will be on during the autumn, starting from now and ending at the beginning of December. I’ll be selecting the winner out of a shortlist of – hopefully – fantastic images. So start submitting really soon – not to me but to the Southwest Coast Path organisation.

Along with this article are a few of my own southwest coast path landscape photos here, just to whet your appetite – at least I hope it will!
