Autumn's nearly here and it's time for the Editor's annual family break (i.e. my holiday). In my absence we're taking you from the coldest of Northern climates in Greenland to the hottest in the Egyptian Sahara where Quintin Lake worked on a couple of quite personal projects. Neil A White works in less extreme climates on the Yorkshire coastline (although if you've ever visited in winter you might not agree!) where his work on the Lost Villages documents the gradual but persistent erosion of the cliffs with the resultant destruction of anything that sits on them.
If you weren't able to attend our overbooked (sorry!) webinar with Doug Chinnery we have uploaded the whole session for your delectation. We have a couple of more technical articles for your delight with an introduction to the slippery thing that is "colour". We might think we know what it is but you'd be surprised. And a technique for mitigating some problems associated with over coloured shadows in printing (and for the web for that matter).
Finally our featured photographer, John Irvine, takes us on a short journey from his desire for the iconic landscape shot to visiting the highlights of his urban home near Edinburgh. Some of his recent work is quite stunning and is well worth spending some time with.
Our editor (me) has also promised a couple of diary posts from his holiday cabin in Glencoe. We have a first image below if you're interested!

Our Autumn holidays in Scotland are always a gamble. Is there going to be any decent weather? Is there going to be any autumnal colour? more
I've had Quintin's website bookmarked for some time and have been inspired by his approach to a wide range of photographic subjects and also his non-landscape work in architecture and documentary. more
The Lost Villages project aims to explore the constant battle between the North Sea and the mainland and to document the irreversible change taking place on the Holderness coast. more
It turns out that if you talk to colour scientists and colour psychologists they’ll tell you that there is no such thing as colour! This article will look a little bit more into that disturbing revelation. more
I’d like to talk about a technique I’ve been playing with for about the last year. It first came about when I started to post process colour negative scans for the film scanning business I run. more
John Irvine is only a recent convert to landscape photography but he's been producing some wonderful work and in the last few months has, through external constraints, found a passion for his local area. more
