Showing posts from April, 2016


April can be a difficult month. The days are getting longer, but the forests are still bare until the end of the month. We've had some lovely evenings recently, but I've just sat at home, unable to decide what to do. An evening on the South Downs, overlooking Kingston Ridge was just what I needed to gently ease me back into photography. The great thing about this location is I can pick a composition I like and wait for the light to change. You may recognise the windmill scene from last September. How the landscape changes over the seasons! And the windmill is now complete. Most photographers would use 300mm and 500mm lenses for wildlife, sports or photojournalism, but long focal lengths are ideal for the gentle, rolling South Downs landscape, where the vantage point may be a mile or two from the scene.
