Last One Standing . . It may not look like it but this is a single frame. The light penetrated the woods just about enough on the right side of the image. In fact even without the stag I was quite happy with the scene. The left top corner gives you some idea of the otherwise dimly lit woods. . . #nature_perfection #wildlife_perfection #wildlife #instagood #earthfocus #nature #naturelovers #animalplanet #bbcspringwatch #omgb #nakedplanet #mypixeldiary #potd #discoverearth #discoverer #wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #wildgeography #nakedplanet #epicworldpix #ourplanetdaily #planetearth #thisislondon #awesomepix #instagrammer #instagram #theprotraveler #theglobewanderer #canon #mycanon #bbcearth

'Ghosts' . . Clouds can make or break images in the mountains... quite strong winds meant that the scene changed every two or three seconds, and with a 360 view there's a lot to cover because things were happening all around. These clouds for instance were over that lake for maybe 5 seconds and then they were gone. . . #landscapephotography #landscape #mountains #wales #snowdonia #snowdonianationalpark #snowdon #visitwales #mountainscape #instamountain #landscapes #welsh #mountain #mountainstories #instagood #instamountains at Snowdonia

Here's something from moody Snowdonia last weekend. What an incredible place - was everything I expected and more. Gets the landscape photography juices really flowing... Would definitely love to be here in Winter. . . #landscapephotography #landscape #mountains #wales #snowdonia #snowdonianationalpark #snowdon #visitwales #mountainscape #instamountain #landscapes #welsh #mountain #mountainstories at Snowdonia

My favourite image from last year, I think. Why am I sharing it now? Well if you're in the U.K. and you're a landscape photographer then you would know. The Landscape Photographer of the Year (LPOTY) 2017 results have just been announced and while I didn't enter the competition this year, in the 2016 competition this image was runner-up in the 'Living the View' category. An image that I will probably never be able to replicate - not sure I even want to, just to make this one more special. There's an incredible amount of commentary, discussion, disagreements, debates every time the results of a big photo competition are announced. It's a lot of fun ๐Ÿ˜œ. I was in Wales over the weekend when it all kicked off for LPOTY 2017 and it was interesting sharing views with the group of photographers I was with. Standing up on those mountains (on a pretty amazing workshop with Greg @greg_whitton_photography) and discussing about it put a lot of things into perspective though. But more about that in another post. In other news the weather and skies have gone a bit crazy today in the U.K. because of #stormophelia. Hope everyone's staying safe on the coasts... especially Ireland - stay safe ! . . #lpoty #landscape #landscapephotography #landscapephotographer #landscapephotographeroftheyear #uk #weather #canon #mycanon #reflection #reflections #mood #moody #moodygrams #omgb #lovegreatbritain at London, United Kingdom

'Alpha' . . I'm looking forward to photographing some hilly landscapes this weekend... out with a few other like minded photographers so should be great. I hope the weather has something good in store for us because the last couple of hours have been horrendous! So here's something to remind me of better weather days... . . #nature_perfection #wildlife_perfection #wildlife #instagood #earthfocus #nature #naturelovers #animalplanet #bbcspringwatch #omgb #nakedplanet #mypixeldiary #potd #discoverearth #discoverer #wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #wildgeography #nakedplanet #epicworldpix #ourplanetdaily #planetearth #thisislondon #awesomepix #instagrammer #instagram #theprotraveler #theglobewanderer #canon #mycanon #bbcearth

I've spent a fair few mornings just watching some trees, the water and the first light of day and I've never found myself wanting to be somewhere else. . . #tree #reflection #reflectiongram #reflection_shotz #reflections #water #water_brilliance #tree_love #tree_magic #tree_captures #nature #landscape #treescape #treestagram #treescollection #nature_perfection #photooftheday #omgb #hayatakarken #wildlife_perfection #british #instagood #mood #moodygrams

Land Ahoy . . As the last big Island before the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean, leaving and reaching Ireland must have been some experience in the old days of travel by sea. I have endless respect and awe for the sea farers of hundreds of years ago, those who just set out on their relatively unsafe boats to explore unknown waters, never knowing whether they would return. To them seeing land must have meant the world, both literally and figuratively. . . Could someone identify this island for me? I think it's the one to the right of Great Blasket Island but I'm not sure. @normmccloskey @adrian_heely ? . . #instagood #ireland #instaireland #visitireland #kerry #countykerry #beach #travel #nature_perfection #irelandgram #travelphotography #irish #dingle #ireland๐Ÿ€ #travelphotography #skyscape #seascape #loveireland #discoverearth #traveler #tourtheplanet at Dingle, Ireland

Coumeenole Rock . . More coastline stuff from Ireland... you cannot get away from it in this country, it's literally all around you! Of course I will never complain when I have the coast and a wide angle lens by my side. . . #instagood #ireland #inch #inchbeach #instaireland #visitireland #kerry #countykerry #beach #travel #nature_perfection #travelphotography #irish #dingle #ireland๐Ÿ€ #travelphotography #skyscape #seascape #loveireland #tourtheplanet #discoverearth #traveler at Coumeenole Beach

'Inch' . . I've found some time to go through my Ireland images and here's one from the penultimate day in the country. I had this 3 mile stretch of beach all to myself at Inch, early that morning. What a stunning place - you could imagine yourself being on the shores of an ocean on another planet. Definitely a must visit location and I can only imagine how, to use that word, epic, it can get in different weather conditions. A 'big sky' and a 'big sea' place in one... . . #instagood #ireland #inch #inchbeach #instaireland #visitireland #kerry #countykerry #beach #travel #nature_perfection #travelphotography #irish #dingle #ireland๐Ÿ€ #travelphotography #skyscape #seascape #loveireland at Inch Beach, Co Kerry.

'The Moonlighters' . . It would have been rude not to get an image of the full moon a couple of days ago - there was no escaping its presence in the sky as it set in the early hours of the morning. The Harvest Moon is the closest full moon to the fall equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, and usually takes place around September 22. But this year's September full moon rose on September 6 โ€” a difference of 16 days. So we had an early October harvest moon on October 5 Although it has been some time since we last saw an October Harvest Moon, it is not that rare an anomaly. ('06, '09, and the next one in 2020). A harvest moon can happen on any date between September 7 and October 8. So roughly a 25% chance of an October harvest moon. Throughout the year, the moon appears over the horizon about 45-50 minutes later each day on average but around the autumn equinox it rises only 10-20 minutes later (in Europe) While it might sound like not much of a difference, but the shift brings noticeably bright nights. With shorter periods between sunset and moonrise, farmers are able to work harvesting the crops later on into the night, hence this particular moon's name. Always good to know the science / reason behind things! ๐Ÿ˜€ . . Hope you like the image. Had to deal with low-light (even though the Moon would disagree ๐Ÿ˜‰) and it wasn't easy with the animals prancing around. . . #harvestmoon #harvest #nature_perfection #fullmoon #autumn #equinox #bbcspringwatch #nature_perfection #wildlife_perfection #wildlife #instagood #earthfocus #omgb #nakedplanet #mypixeldiary #potd #discoverearth #discoverer #wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #wildgeography #nakedplanet #epicworldpix #ourplanetdaily #planetearth #awesomepix #instagrammer #theprotraveler #theglobewanderer #mycanon
