It is with pleasure that I find myself living back in the South West of England, a move that has had me in search of new locations to shoot when it comes to my passion for photography. I would be lying if I didn’t say that I missed the ease of access in the North of England to mountains, and of course the proximity of Scotland, as well as the company of my good photography friends (fortunately we will all be reunited on a trip to Iceland later this year).
Devon alone has roughly 450 miles of coastline, then add Cornwall and Somerset and Dorset to that and you have an amazing photographer’s playground…
However the one thing that the South West has is coast, and I mean; lots and lots of coast. I think it is fair to say that where land meets water there is always a good opportunity for some stunning landscape photography. In the UK as a whole we are blessed with some amazing locations and, let’s face it, all are relatively close, it’s just that most of the time you are looking for something that is drivable in about 2hrs max. Devon alone has roughly 450 miles of coastline, then add Cornwall and Somerset and Dorset to that and you have an amazing photographer’s playground, especially for one who, like me, loves a seascape.
Even though I grew up down here I can’t remember many of the amazing places from my childhood. I have so far mainly managed to point my lens at the well-known locations, but gradually I will build up my knowledge and hopefully bring you even more wonderful visions from my camera and my mind. Below you can see some of my journey so far, I hope you like them?
