#MySundayPhoto - My Photos from the Week

#MySundayPhoto - My Photos from the Week

I thought I’d try something a little different this year. With #MySundayPhoto ending at the end of 2018 I wanted to keep posting on a Sunday and so I think I’m going to post my photos from the previous week that I’ve shared on Instagram.

My focus this coming year really is on Instagram and growing that. It’s the social media platform that I enjoy the most. Instead of sharing photos everyday what I’m finding works for me is sharing a photo every other day.

#MySundayPhoto - My Top 5 Photos of 2018

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.

#MySundayPhoto - The End

Whilst it seemed like everyone in Sussex was still in bed I was up exploring.

This was taken the day after Boxing Day, it was a misty start to the day and I was looking forward to getting a few misty scenes.

As I was setting up the sky suddenly came alive, the sun was rising and bringing a burst of colour. It only lasted a matter of minutes, I was in the right place at the right time.

Merry Christmas!

I wanted to take a photo of a Christmas tree to share on the weekend before the big day.

This tree is located at the top of School Hill in Lewes. I thought a long exposure created an interesting effect and something a little different.

Towards the end of the year it’s the perfect time to take in all that nature has to offer before the festivities take over.

We live in such a beautiful country and I sometimes feel like we forget that.

This photo was taken overlooking Lake Windermere in The Lake District, one of the most amazing places in the World.

OOO I am not a fan of the dark mornings but every now and then we get treated to something a little bit special.

Whilst on my way into Lewes the other day I could see the sun starting to rise and I knew if I made the effort I could get a nice photo of the mist covering the trees as the sun added colour to the sky.

#MySundayPhoto - In The Mist

#MySundayPhoto - In The Mist

The beauty and calmness of a misty morning. An area I’ve walked many times but with the addition of mist, it adds a blanket of beauty.

This image has had the colour drawn out of it as I personally think this works better on this type of photo.

You’d never get bored taking photos of woodlands, there is always something developing, some new life being created.

We may not have vast rolling hills nearby, but what we do have is the most wonderful woodlands. Areas so quiet and peaceful you could lose yourself for hours.

Whilst walking in the local woodland looking for Intimate Landscape details I stumbled across this scene. The colours caught my eye with the rustic bark and the golden fern in the foreground.

I’d felt I’d lost some motivation and a walk amongst all the Autumn colours was the medicine that I needed.

This week in Lewes it’s been their annual bonfire celebration, this is one of the largest bonfire events in the UK and people from all around the World come to visit.

On the morning after I thought I’d have a little walk around the town and up by the castle I came across this quaint looking lane.

So the end is near…

So the end is near…

I’ve made the decision to call an end to MySundayPhoto, it’s not an easy decision but after 5 1/2 years, almost 300 weeks I think the time has come.

I honestly can’t thank everyone enough for the support each and every Sunday. I wouldn’t change any of it but I’ve planned my Sundays around commenting, and now it’s time to move on to new projects.

Is there a better time to be a landscape photographer?

We’ve been lucky in Sussex with our weather, most days it’s been chilly but sunny and this has meant getting out with the camera is so much easier.

This is one of the walkways in the local woodland that I love taking photos of. This has it all, the rustic leaves, green in the trees and the blue sky background.
