It’s All About Location…For Danger

Posted by in blogs

Ok, as our featured image will prove, my brother and I returned yet again to Hermitage Castle and I thought It would be a great idea to hike a bit away and get a long shot of the structure from a distance (somewhat).

I walked away to the far end of the field, towards the boundary wall and found a flat bit of ground to stand, turning up my camera to more likeable settings, I looked down to adjust my footing for a more stable stance.

Noticing an odd pattern on the ground, the long grass that had been compressed had about seven to eight holes, roughly the size of a kids fists, I thought this was an odd pattern, possibly made by anything.

Only, as I shifted my feet and raised the camera to take my picture, I got the sounds of animals, but gone were the birds in the trees and the sheep in the fields as I could not help be drawn to one sound, a bunch of very loud, very pissed off hisses coming from my feet or more importantly what I was stood on.

Now I can safely say I am not a marathon runner but I can say I looked like one with how quick I moved from that spot, you always hear how the perfect shot needs the perfect location, well turns out I had neither.

One of my loves of photography is that no two photos are the same, whether water, land or air even fire is forever changing, light is forever altering the landscape, that shadows are constantly on the move, the same image can never be captured twice…my favourite effect is shots with a water surface reflection…See staff page for more…
