For a while I worried that this autumn would be like so many other recent ones: trees stripped of their leaves by high winds, and endless grey dulling the colours. But I’m glad to see that the autumn colours have finally reached their peak here in Lincolnshire. Here are a couple of images from my morning walks this week.
I spend far too much time sitting down. My work day is normally 10.00-18.00, and most of that time is spent sitting in a chair, immobile. Time to try something new.
After the near-effortless progress of the first week, I expected the second week to go just as easily. But my progress is slowing and I’m finding it more difficult to hit my daily goal.
I’ve interviewed Highlands-based landscape photographer Ali Horne for the Sidetracked Field Journal.
At 25, Ali Horne is a full-time professional landscape photographer known for his dramatic images, subtle colours, and striking depiction of mountain landscapes. But his images aren’t confined to the Highlands. Alistair has travelled all over the world with his camera, seeking out unique viewpoints and telling stories through his images. Although he mainly focuses on landscapes, he dabbles in the odd portrait when necessary.
He’s the driving force behind the Highland Collective – a group of eight Scottish photographers exploring the landscape and showcasing the beauty of the Scottish Highlands, encouraging more people to visit… but to tread softly when they do.
