The New Forest

As much as photography can be a very personal and subjective passion, it can also be wonderfully social. I recently spent time in the New Forest with new friends, both Paul and Nick were great company.

We hiked for hours and took photos throughout the course of a cold, soggy and somewhat chilly day. It was a terrific way to explore a new place, filled with plenty of chat and banter, yet with lovely serenity too.

I’ve not done as much landscape photography as I would have liked, but every time I do, I really enjoy the challenge it poses. You have to be dedicated, prepared, patient and determined to get great shots. I look forward to spending more time with these guys in future, thanks for a great trip! 🙂

Here are some of my picks from the day.
