I was writing the heather article that is in this issue, last week and I thought “Wouldn’t it be nice if we could get a two or three of our subscribers to submit a couple of images” and so I went onto Facebook and posted a request. Charlotte also tweeted it on our account and within about a day we had over thirty submissions and at the end of Friday we had nearly 60 submitted pictures! Now we’ve tried to include as many of the pictures in our article as possible which makes for a bumper issues but because we were taken aback by the submissions we may have missed a couple so please forgive us and drop us a line if your image didn’t appear.

What this really tells me is that although we’re not a particularly big business in comparison with the Outdoor Photography’s and Amateur Photographer’s of the world, our readers are not only very talented but extraordinarily community minded in making these submissions.

Because of the success of this, we’re going to try to run a community contribution article once a month and we’ll get a more formal way of submitting pictures so we don’t lose any. Our next article (in a months time) will be on Birch Trees so have a dig in your portfolios and keep an eye out for the call for photos (we’ll announce it on Twitter, Facebook and Email).

So from Charlotte and I here’s a great big thank you!

Heather – Calluna Vulgaris

It’s heather season in the Northern hemisphere and those areas blessed with this glorious plant are being presented with one of the wonders of nature. In certain places in the Yorkshire Moors, Peak District and the moors of Scotland there is a swathe of mauve that can extend from horizon to horizon. If you’re driving over the tops of the Yorkshire moors it can seem as if you are afloat on clouds of blossom. If you live in a moorland more

Endframe: “Rainbow Over The Potala Palace” Lhasa, Tibet, 1981 By Galen Rowell

"Rainbow Over The Potala Palace" doesn't have a complex composition, creating order from chaos, or much navel-gazing value, but the fabulous conceit here is that what looks like a simple image has a fantastic back story and one that we can take a few lessons from. more

The Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands, also known as "the islands of sheep“, lie in the Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Iceland in the west and Norway in the east, and north of Scotland. more

Light & Shadow; Namibia dunes

I was lucky enough to visit Namibia in April this year, and one of the highlights of the trip was capturing sunrises and sunsets on the dunes, both at Sossusvlei and further north. more

Laki

Laki is today a quiet photogenic area in the Icelandic highlands. Together with the 565 square kilometre Eldhraun lava field, it reminds you of a place which was once hell on earth. I have always found this place and its history remarkable. I can just dream of how this once looked when the eruption was in full action. Unfortunately or maybe even fortunately, today we can only observe what is left of it. more

Dylan Nardini

I love experiencing my surroundings and observing light in its many forms and this for me is what landscape photography allows me to do and hence why I love it. more

Cooking up a Classic

Rafael Rojas talked at the Meeting of Minds Conference 2014 and explained how landscape photography as a creative way of personal expression is not just capturing pretty pictures of beautiful scenery, using advanced cameras or travelling to exotic locations. more

Beyond The Spectacular Landscape

Like many of my peers, I was first drawn to photographing the natural landscape after seeing spectacular vistas of wild looking places featured in coffee-table books and glossy magazines. more

Thomas Peck’s Critiques

How much more difficult does it become, however, for the viewer to link the images when they are abstracts as we see here in these shots by Edward Burtynsky? more
