Landscape has been a part of my life for many years, it helped me with depression and brought me back from so many dark places. In April 2018 my life chance to the point I nearly gave up on my photography and the dream of travelling to capture the beauty of the land. Instead of giving up I put my equipment away and gave myself time to heal, this was hard for me but it was necessary. I was facing a massive challenge where I had to learn to walk and talk again, my photography was less important but I missed it so much. With this challenge, I faced it head on and was determined to get back out with my camera, I cried loads because I thought I was failing as I couldn't walk in the time frame the consultant had told me. Ive pushed myself so much with learning to walk and getting back to what I love best, the pushing is starting to pay off I'm now walking with walking sticks and ive picked my camera back up. I'm talking photos. Ive adapted to the sticks and the style of my photography, I'm still pushing myself and in time I will be walking without them. I wont give up on my dreams and my love of photography.
One of the many places I love to venture to is the the Highlands of Scotland. This place is magnificent, from waterfall to outstanding scenery not forgeting the wildlife. You will find many of my landscapes are of this amazing place, the newest additions were taken in December 2018 where i travelled up with my crutches and tried to see if i could still capture the beauty. Well i can say i still had it and i still loved the trill of taking the photos. The only challenge was walking to the locations and carrying my equipment, luckly i had time on my side and i could take my time with my walking.
