Different emotions are coming to the surface.

I don’t know about you guys but this type of weather gives me the blues. Maybe I've SAD'S

, who knows, but I tend to find cold wet drizzly days rather depressing, especially when you have only a couple of days at the weekend. I don’t know about you guys but on Saturday I tend to do the boring household things, tidy up, food shopping… and more depressingly at this time of year ‘Christmas shopping’ )o: And on Sundays it’s time for fun!

ANYWAY as a landscape photographer what do you do when the weather is overcast, dull and generally grey? Do you stay home? Do you stay in bed, NO! You get a grip and force yourself out to feel the wind and rain on your face!

I personally find this type of weather very frustrating, (especially when you get up at dawn and the sun doesn’t even give you he slightest degree of interesting colour).

It makes the job a lot harder. Hey when there is a fantastic sunset, its not hard to move people into some kind of emotion, or if there is a massive storm on the horizon its not difficult to get those viewer emotions working.

Anyway to flat dull boring light! What to do? Work with different emotions…

A photograph doesn’t have to be pretty or dramatic to be powerful, but you do have to work harder at it. Anyway I'm not sure if this has done that, concentrated on the subtlety’s but I hope you feel something for it even if you don’t like it.
