So the holidays are over and it's back to work for everyone. Given the weather in the UK at the moment that's no great loss to us photographers though. I hope you've all had a refreshing break and possibly got a few new toys to play with in the new year. We had a chat with a few of a our regulars and asked them what 2013 was like and what they hope to see in 2014 and asked them to show some of their favourite work from the last year. I for one wished to get out a little bit more, a desire I'm sure is matched by many a photographer, professional or amateur.

The new year is going to be interesting for many reasons for On Landscape not least the conference in November for which we're now taking bookings (click here for more information). We'll be featuring interviews with the speakers and portfolios over the coming months.

Everyone knows that On Landscape likes the occasional tree photograph and even David Clapp is moving from auroral to arboreal in his latest article on misty woods. Hans Strand has a particular love of woodland and what woodland they have in Sweden! Hans talks through a few of his photographs and the ways he sees them.

David Ward takes a look at the history of landscape photography and the way that we have seen the landscape, touching on elements of the sublime and picturesque along the way. Great reading and a lot of links to follow to new info.

Finally we have a great interview with our featured photographer Esen Tunar and I have written a second in my series on colour in photography - this time looking at how our memory and knowledge of colour affects the actual colours we see.

Here's hoping for more photographic opportunities for everyone in 2014!

The Forest

Ever since I started photography in the early eighties I have been strongly attached to the forest. The tranquility, the scents and the feeling comfort being embraced by trees, stimulates my senses. By stepping into a forest I transcend into a meditative stage, where I forget the stressful dayly struggle and become a photographing indian, looking for camera compositions. I really like this friendly “hunt“ for new perspectives. I often return to the same forests over and over again. more

Changing Landscapes?

When Eadweard Muybridge – he of the random extra vowels in his name and inventor of the camera shutter and remote release – made his images of Yosemite in the late 1860’s, landscape photography was an altogether more physically challenging experience than it is today. We may think that we’ve got it hard walking a mile or two from our cars and waiting for an hour or two in the cold in our modern wind and waterproof clothing more

Hans Strand’s 2013

We asked a number of our contributors to answer a few questions on their past year and what 2014 holds. 1) What have you been doing photographically in 2013, anything new & different or exciting trips that got the juices flowing ? I have been doing my regular stuff. A mix of Swedish bread and butter landscapes to keep the financial wheels spinning and some intimate landscapes for my soul. In March I went to The Lofoten Islands in the northern part more

We asked a number of our contributors to answer a few questions on their past year and what 2014 holds. 1) What have you been doing photographically in 2013, anything new & different or exciting trips that got the juices flowing ? Finally fulfilling my long held ambitions to visit Spitzbergen (in June) and New Zealand (in August) were definitely my highlights of 2013. I actually made very few images in Spitzbergen but I was deeply moved by being in a more

Andrew Nadolski’s 2013

We asked a number of our contributors to answer a few questions on their past year and what 2014 holds. 1) What have you been doing photographically in 2013, anything new & different or exciting trips that got the juices flowing ? Not as much as I would like! The pressures of my commercial work and the commitment to getting the pdf issues of onlandscape out, nearly on time, has often left me exhausted and that has meant precious little more

Joe Cornish’s 2013

We asked a number of our contributors to answer a few questions on their past year and what 2014 holds. 1) What have you been doing photographically in 2013, anything new & different or exciting trips that got the juices flowing ? I was involved in a lot of exhibition mounting, at the Station in Richmond, and at the gallery in Northallerton, both my own shows and group shows and collaborations. I also chaired the judging of the competition, Best Shots, more

Memory Colour

In the first article in our series on colour we jumped in a bit at the deep end and looked at just what colour is. This second article will take a look at our perceptions of colour and debunks the accepted belief that colour is something that an object has and that we can clearly see just by looking. Firstly though I’d like to talk about a rather clever experiment that was done in Germany about 10 years ago. They more

Two Days in the Clouds

In late November last year, whilst on a break from my foreign schedule, I headed off to Dartmoor, to photograph in some of the thickest fog I had seen in a long while. The unusual event saw visibility down to just a few metres, which was perfect to try out an intimate experiment, one which I thought I would borrow from the great minds of large format. The recent resurgence for shooting trees and forests in ridiculous detail has always more

Esen Tunar

Esen Tunar has been impressing people with his astrophotography and aurora pictures on Flickr for some time but he's not just a sky watcher as the images in this weeks featured photographer show.. Can you tell me a little about your education, childhood passions, early exposure to photography and vocation? I was born and grew up in Cyprus. Most of my childhood passions were influenced more
