The passing of any year brings thoughts of change, the chance to shuffle off old habits and the opportunity to make new starts. The end of the year typically prompts most photographers to take a look at what they have produced over the last year and the web is full of the ‘top 10’ or ‘best of’ choices for the months that have passed.

For me, it’s been a fairly unproductive year, and it wasn’t that surprising that my top 10 images came from post-conference vacation in the Lake District all but one from a fleeting trip on the Ullswater steamers courtesy of Mark Littlejohn (and the top three being taken within seconds of each other!)

The next thoughts as the year clicks over are New Year’s Resolutions (and for those of you who said their own new year resolution was 3840x2160 - very funny… ). Most of these will be some variation of ‘getting out more’ and I think we can all agree that that would be ‘no bad thing’ but I’d like to tempt all of you to add “create and share a project” to that list (and if you wanted to share it via On Landscape - just drop me a line!)

When it came to setting my own intentions for 2017, they definitely include the above but I’m also adding ‘produce more content for On Landscape’, after all this is one of the main reasons for our move to the Highlands of Scotland. Getting to grips with producing video content is definitely one of my challenges for the new year but I look forward to sharing the results with you, whatever the medium, and I also want to wish you all well for your own personal journeys in 2017!

Meeting of Minds Conference Exhibition

During our Meeting of Minds Conference held at The Rheged Centre from the 18-20th November 2016, we ran a community exhibition. Each of the delegates was invited to submit an image into the exhibition which was to be exhibited in the Rheged's main exhibition space. Fotospeed supported the venture and kindly printed and mounted each image on foamboard for us. The exhibition was part of our goal of creating conversation and bringing together like-minded people to talk about their craft more

Endframe: Upper Torridon, Winter Dawn by Joe Cornish

The midground provides a delicate connection between the upper and lower regions of the frame, with the two crops of land almost ‘reaching out’ to each other. more

Alex Winser

Alex credits his interest in photography to a love of nature which inspired him to buy a camera and explore the world of macro photography. more

South Georgia

Travelling to the end of the world is not an easy task, and South Georgia certainly qualifies for this category. First, you need to cross 1850km of open water from the southern tip of South America over the Scotia Sea to get there; a voyage which can be a stormy inferno if the luck isn't with you. So I thanked God that this time mother nature was kind to us as we had four days of gentle rolling on more

Moving into Film

Looking back over this journey I think what I can conclude is that I have begun to really appreciate the process of making the photographs, rather than just taking them. more

Bye, Bye Landscape Photography, Dear

Sheer populousness is often a sign that something has peaked, and that its exciting, pioneering days are over. Given how varied the world is, and how different people are, I wondered: why do so many landscape photographs look exactly the same more

The Path of Opportunity

Once the brain is primed to pursue a singular goal or solution, it will focus attention on that outcome to the detriment of others. more
