 why eyes

 

:: This website was created in autumn 2004 - because I feel part of the forest where I live and want it to be appreciated by a wider audience; because people need reasons to value wild land and highlighting it's beauty is a place to start. It's a simple website where you can browse simple pictures and escape from the 21st century rush... ::

:: Most of my favourite pictures have occurred out of nothing; when Iíve walked onto the forest deep in thought, remembering my camera as an afterthought; or set off home too tired to take any more pictures only to see something new. If somehow your emotions at the time affect how you see the landscape and how you record it - maybe those are the times you capture something more than decoration ::

:: Most really good photographers talk about freezing a moment in time; if I try to do that I don't normally succeed. I think luck is involved, getting the camera on and ready to go in the nick of time and then framing something out of instinct. Think too much and the moment is lost. I fail a lot of the time through trying to recreate a previous image, I often catch myself returning to the location where Iíve got a decent photo in the past and then I'm surprised not to be able to recreate it. Only then can the quest for the iconic photo actually begin. That quest is a labour of love for me ::
