Photography - Monochrome Series
I’m a keen amateur photographer so I thought I would share some of my favourite shots on my blog. I hope you like them.
These particular 3 photos (Scroll down) were taken over the past few years, all will have been taken on a small Sony compact. They are all, in fact, full colour pictures, and have not been desaturated at all in Photoshop.
The top shot was taken in Les Deux Alpes on a snowboarding holiday in March 2008, on a piste called Jandri which was my favourite run in that resort.
The second shot was taken in Wales in 2007. My then girlfriend (now wife) were visiting my Mum and Dad, and they took us to a cove on the Pembrokeshire coast called St Martin’s Haven, where we could see, and indeed hear, the seal pups. It was a wonderful few hours and whilst walking around that headland I saw this particular view. I loved the wonderful, rigid geometry of the rocks and balance to the whole composition.
The final shot was taken in beautiful Newquay in Cornwall on a windy day in 2007. With the winds so high and the waves so explosive there was a huge amount of water spray in the air, and that is what helped give the shot so much depth as even relatively nearby headlands faded into the haze.
