The theme for this week’s photo challenge is Rock and while my initial thoughts were to photograph my family because they are my rock, it was at the point I find out that there is no way on Earth they would allow me take their photo and then publish them. I tried to sweeten the deal with a very poor attempt of including our two border collies however the two dogs were nowhere to be found either. So with little choice I’ve been forced to find an image from the archives.
I spotted this scene as I walked along the foreshore and intially had planned on lining up the sun with centre however it just didn’t work. So as the old saying goes, if at first the composition doesn’t work, move three feet and its changed.
P.S I’m not actually sure that’s a saying but try it some time!
I have no idea why but the most popular post for 2018 wasn’t even written in 2018. I originally wrote this blog post in 2011 and to this day, still attracts viewers. Drum roill please, The most popular blog post of 2018 is 12 Real Landscape Photography Tips
Some of these tips are, to be honest, are real obvious but how many times have you gone out to take photos and not known the tides or worn incorrect footwear, left the torch at home etc. We’ve all done it at some stage and I’m still forgetting something. For example, recently I had to hold the filters in front of the lens because I forgot the filter holder attachment and I knew exactly where it was, at home!
Maybe I should add ‘Don’t forget filter holder attachment’ and change the name to 13 Real Landscape Photography tips.
Let me know in the comments if you have any tips that should be added to the list.
