As it’s the start of 2019 I thought I’d share My Top 5 Photos of 2018. These aren’t the photos that received the most likes, or the most amazingly technical photos…these are ones that I enjoy.
Photos for me should transform you back to that moment when you took it, and make the person looking at the photo drift away.
These aren’t in any particular order.
This photo was taken in July and was just a case of being at the right place at the right time. I was in the middle of setting up on the tripod for a landscape photo when I looked on this plant and noticed a couple of ladybirds.
A quick swing of the tripod and get set and this photo was taken. At the time if was my favourite of 2018.
August saw us heading to West Wittering for a bit of a spur of the moment family break. The weather was perfect, and it was just what we needed.
On one of the days we visited a place called Selsey, a pebble beach where there seemed a lot going on here.
Of course we had ice cream on the beach.
August was also when we visited The Lake District, this time without children. It was a trip we’d planned for 12 months and it was perfect. We’ll certainly go back at some point.
So calm and peaceful.
The beautiful Lake Windermere in the Lake District. Away from the crowds it's the most peaceful location you could imagine.
The Autumn/Winter time is my favourite as a photographer and in 2018 it didn’t disappoint. This was the perfect misty morning in Sussex and I got exactly the photo that I was after.
The drama, the mystery.
The misty mornings is what landscape photographers are all after.
The final photo of the 2018 collection, this was taken in Lewes the day after Boxing Day.
While everyone else was sleeping I went to explore around Lewes.
The town was empty and completely quiet as the sun was starting to rise.
I’ve enjoyed my photos of this year and I hope you have too!
