Inside this issue
It’s the Christmas issue and we’re mostly finished for the year. I’ve got some drum scanning to do and some final judging for the International Landscape Photographer of the Year and then it’s just a matter of mince pies and lie-ins until 2019 (yeah, right!!)
I was recently thinking back to when we had the exhibition of our delegates work for the Meeting of Minds conference. We were really impressed with the quality of the submitted work and wondered if it would be possible to put together a similar virtual exhibition of our reader's work.
So, if you would like to be included, please send an image you would like to be included to ‘mailto:email@example.com’ along with a title and short caption. We’ll publish all of the submissions into a PDF for the first issue of the new year. I’ll be digging through the admittedly few images I’ve made this year just after we make this issue live.
We’d also like to say a big thank you to all of our supporters in helping to make this magazine as inspiring as it is. To all of you who read and subscribe to the magazine, have a great holiday wherever you are.

After an excellent start to the book showing the safety, accessibility and local knowledge aspects of walking in the mountains (i.e. Where to get a good breakfast!) the book’s core content is a series of high-level mountain walks, with viewpoints selected along the way. more
If you’re an older photographer, you may remember the original ‘The Making of Landscape Photographs’ and ‘Seeing Landscapes’ books that Charlie produced in the 1990s and if you do then, like me, you would have enjoyed reading his descriptions of how he found and constructed the photographs therein. more
The eye searching for detail wants to automatically aim straight for the lovely rich cloud on the left but as soon as it does you want to explore further. more

I've been following Trym's work on Facebook for quite some time and it's nice to see work from such an iconic place as Lofoten but through the eyes of a 'local'. more
Charlie was the opening speaker at this year's Meeting of Minds conference in Penrith. His talk was on an investigation into what the landscape photographer needs to attempt to invest into the photograph to draw a favourable and positive response from its audience..... more
During this year I have participated in a project called ‘Territoire-s’, which was an artistic exchange of ideas between artists from two countries. more
Making colour management a key part of your workflow is essential if you want to avoid this disappointment. more
I am particularly drawn to the abstract impressionists, the impressionists, the cubists and so on. From this, I have found my own image making has been hugely influenced and all of my work is now abstract in form. more
