A Whale Of A Time In Kerry

A Whale Of A Time In Kerry

Kerry, on the glorious west coast of Ireland, has a lot to offer, including some of the loveliest landscapes you could wish to see, great mountains to roam in and the Atlantic Ocean, where you can see seabirds, seals, dolphins and whales only a couple of miles from the coast. On our week-long holiday, the people we encountered were delightful and full of Irish charm, and our accommodation and meals were all great. The icing on the cake was that we saw it all in great weather which,

What It Takes To Take A Pic. 5: It’s all down to the light….

Holkam Beach in North Norfolk is greatly loved, particularly by those who have a passion for the area; and there are many. You emerge from the pine-covered dunes onto sand that stretches for miles to the east and west, and also quite a great distance out to the breaking waves when the tide is out. A lot of this coast is salt marsh, which is beautiful and fascinating in its own way, but darker and more muddy than this expanse of firm sand and dunes. Of course

Doug Kennedy Photography Bulletin 2015

This is my first photography end of year bulletin which I hope you will find interesting, but if not, just respond to it saying something like ‘no thanks’ and I will remove you from my list. The two biggest events for me during the year were the publication by Oxbow Books Ltd. of North Downs Landscapes in May, and Norfolk Landscapes in October. If you bought either of them, thank you very much indeed, and if you have any comments or can do an online review,

What it takes to take a pic. – Number 1: Golden Moments.

What does it take to take a pic? Well, not just any pic, but one that is good enough to publish in a book of landscape photography, where the subject is right, the light is interesting and the setting is appealing. If you are photographing your neck of the woods this is relatively straightforward, as locations are close enough to visit on impulse, or when conditions are right, or simply by going for a walk (or run). This is how it was for my first two books, Chiltern

Autumn In Norfolk

Autumn In Norfolk

Doing landscape photography in Norfolk is a subtler business than in, for instance, Yorkshire or the North Downs (all books to be published by Oxbow Books) as most of the county is rather flat and agricultural. The south-wast of the county is mostly ‘marshland’, which is a continuation of the Cambridgeshire fens and well drained for agriculture, or flat forest and heath around Thetford. The south-east is very flat ‘Broads’ country, with a lot of lakes and waterways, many of which have been dug out to
