Inside this issue
sponsored by ..
It’s the 200th Issue of On Landscape and I want to say a big thank you for so many of you who have supported the magazine over most of the last decade. When I sat down with Joe Cornish ten years ago to ask him what he thought of the idea, I certainly didn’t think it would end up where it is now. Charlotte and I spend most of our time managing the magazine as well as this year planning the conference and we both say how lucky we are to have a job we enjoy so much.
It has also played a significant part in our move to Glencoe where we are able to meet more photographers and have a wonderful base we use for our own outdoor activities. What have we to look forward to in the next ten years? Well, we don’t want to change things too much but we hope to make more use of our base in Glencoe by producing audio and video content and to keep on trying to get a broad selection of articles and interviews from all over the landscape photography world (and occasionally outside it).
To make sure we’re doing things that you still enjoy, we’re putting together a survey to gauge how people like what we do now and to give us feedback on some of the ideas we might try in the future. Please take a few moments to fill it out as we will definitely be using it to guide our development of the magazine in the future.
So thanks again for your continued support and here’s looking forward to many issues to come!

There is a natural meeting point of all the lines in the middle of the picture which holds the eye in the frame; so often this is not the case and we wander off the page! The trees on each edge help to emphasis this point. more
David Speight joined us to chat about his photography whilst he was staying just around the corner at the bottom of Glencoe. more
It’s been a few years (over 8!) since we performed our mammoth “Big Camera Comparison”. For those of you who haven’t seen it, we compared medium format and large format film against various digital cameras including the then cutting edge Phase One IQ280, an 80mp CCD sensor which we used on a Linhof Techno, an Alpa and a Cambo technical camera (we also tested a D800 and a 5Dmk2). You can find the results of that test here but more
Hamish Frost has taken his passion for the outdoors, added photography to the mix, and developed this to the point where he has managed to build a new career for himself photographing people enjoying the landscape. more
This question is not given a lot of thought and this can be the difference between an excellent image and an average, or even a bad one and responses can be convoluted and unclear. more
Just as we miss the autumn colours if we don’t look up in our busy lives, we can miss the autumn of our lives if we don’t make an effort to fully live it, to be fully in it. more
On our 200th issue, we decided to have a special Passing Through podcast. David Ward and Joe Cornish are running a workshop in the area and Ted Leeming and Morag Paterson are in Scotland. We decided to invite them to a roundtable discussion on what we as landscape photographers can do to help protect the environment and mitigate climate change. more
