Since COVID I have been working from home. I have been getting my exercise by cycling around the quiet fields and villages south of York early morning or evening - always taking the camera. I have watched how the fields change over the seasons and have captured this on camera.
I am also keen on “reading the landscape” both directly and via maps, I will talk about some of this within the talk - with the aid of the Photographs. I believe that photography is more fun if you have knowledge of the subject that you are taking.
My talk will focus on the area south of York centered on Copmanthorpe with Rufforth in the north, Tadcaster in the west, Escrick in the east and Stillingfleet/Acaster Selby in the south.
The subjects will focus on the fieldscapes in spring/summer/Autumn including:
- Rape fields
- Wheat & Barley
- My own favourite - potatoes.
There will be less fieldscapes in winter but will be supplemented by some night photography i.e. car trails, light painting etc
