Images of landscapes, skies, life and water
We tend to get the vast majority of our information about our environment through our visual perception. We are visual creatures in the main and this lends itself to using photography to visually explore the environment. Much of my photography is oriented towards capturing interesting patterns and forms of a subject or landscape.
When I am feeling deeply connected I find that I begin to see into and feel more of my surrounds. I find pleasure in seeing and reflecting on the symbolism and metaphor of a scene or subject. It provides me with far greater meaning than aesthetic happy snaps so to speak. On this page there are many happy snaps but also a sprinkling of symbolic images. Most of these images were taken on my phone so are of low to medium quality. Nevertheless they provide a sample of some of the vistas and subjects I have encountered on my walks.
