Recently my good friend and fellow photographer, Lee Glasgow, and I came up with the idea that we should get together regularly to help each other out, share knowledge, and inspire each other. So for our first date he suggested a walk to shoot some landscapes. The plan was Derby but as heavy fog had set in and the general atmosphere was rather grey we decided it could end up being a waste if we spent all that time travelling for nothing but dull grey weather. So the more local Bradgate Park became the destination of choice.
It turned out to be absolutely perfect. By the time we arrived the fog had lifting leaving stunningly beautiful frost everywhere. We even had glimpses of blue sky initially, all renewing my love of landscape photography, something I've not taken much notice of in years.
And from this trip I managed to produce 4 images I just love, the one below being one I plan on enlarging and framing for my home. Now I can't wait to shoot more landscapes and will likely plan weekends away with this in mind. What fun it was to do photography for me again. I'd almost forgotten it used to be my hobby.
