In the last week, we’ve been down to London to watch Chris Packham present the Wildlife Photographer of the Year (with some stunning images, well worth checking out). We have also helped to organise a mini-event at the Joe Cornish gallery for David Ward’s exhibition “Overlooked”. I was foolish enough to offer to talk, and from her comments, so was Lizzie Shepherd; but we supported each other well enough to get our presentations out of the way with few problems before the big guns arrived. Joe Cornish and David Ward gave us a run through some of their thoughts and photographs within the rough theme of the exhibition, and very enjoyable it was too.

It was great to see so many subscribers in the audience and it reminds me just how important it is to get out and say hello to people and see how On Landscape plays its part in helping the community of Landscape Photographers. We’ve recorded all of the talks and will be publishing them in the following issues. Thanks to Joe Rose at the gallery for helping organise the event and for the great work she has put into the exhibition, to the recently mobile Greg Whitton for helping film the event; and finally, thanks and congratulations to David Ward on tweaking expectations and actually selling some prints at an exhibition (and quite a few by the sounds of it!). David’s exhibition runs until 14th December if you get a chance to head up to Joe's gallery in Northallerton.

We’re back in the Highlands now though and enjoying the very scrappy autumnal conditions. Fortunately, once you’re used to the Highlands you know there is always a silver lining somewhere in those wet, dank and uninviting clouds and as I look out of the window I see a break of blue sky illuminating the hills. With the inspiration from all that’s happened in the last few weeks, I shall have to make the most of it and get out with my camera!

End frame: Tree Vision by Sandra Bartocha

I can remember this image stopped me in my tracks. It is taken from a series produced by Sandra and is also an image that is evidently an abstraction from reality. more

An exploration of Brian Eno’s ‘Ambient 4 : On Land’

The album includes tracks titled, ‘Lizard Point’, ‘Lantern Marsh’ and ‘Dunwich Beach, Autumn 1960’. My interest was piqued. Where were these places, and what did they have to do with the music? more

Stephen Segasby

Early in the interview, Stephen mentions that as well as needing time to attune ourselves to a new place, leaving the familiar allows us to re-evaluate what we have done there. more

Creation by Passing Ducks and The Representation of Reality

I suggest only that if an image is to have any deeper meaning in the realist sense, then keeping a strong link between image and the real landscape is important. more
