Below are the artists whose work has inspired me since my last journal entry. The selections made by no means cover everyone that deserves to be here. In time many many more will follow, as with each passing week I discover so many more talented creative people on here, that one journal entry could never do them all justice. So many of you out there are producing work that leaves me in awe, and it would be unfair of me not to acknowledge the creators of work that has caught my eye and imagination.

I would encourage you all to visit the pages of these fine artists, there is much to learn and so much to be in awe of. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this journal, I hope you gain some inspiration not from the journal, but from the works contained within it.

Passing Through by Capturing-the-Light
Passing Through
This was taken in the Wasdale Valley, from the footpath just past the Youth Hostel on the side of Wastwater Lake. The evening sun beginning to set to the left out of view casting its warm light onto the Screes to the right turning them golden before my eyes. Great Gable centre stage in the distance being carressed by the clouds passing through. I find it amazing that viewpoints like this are rarely shot. Further up the lake there was a herd of tripods, shutters clicking at Britains favourite view, yet here I was alone and for a while the world was my own. Sometimes I wonder if its only photographers and artists that see the true beauty of nature before them as whilst taking this shot, lots of vehicles could be seen on the lane out of shot to the left, heading out of the valley. Their day is done, finished walking and enjoying the countryside, yet for most of the visitors, the most they see of the magic of a golden hour is viewed solely through their rear view mirrors! If only they realised exactly what they were missing out on, camera or no camera, its a sight to behold, one that lives on in the mind for ever.

Thank you so much for viewing this work. Should you be drawn to the landscape of the Wasdale valley, there are many more shots of it in my gallery. Also I would encourage you to view my favourites, and journals as there is a wealth of photographic talent in both, crying out to be seen by all.

I am a amateur photographer who became interested in predominanly early morning landscape photography when I bought my first canon eos digital camera. At the time I lived in the Lake District in England, and that inspired my interest in landscape photography. I then lived in New Zealand in an area where I took mostly early morning misty shots. After 6 Years though the lakes of Cumbria drew me back. I am very keen to engage with other serious photographers, all be it I am an amateur, to learn and develop my skills.

I would also like to thank my wife, Dawn, whose encouragement and support motivates me to get better each day as a photographer.

Current Residence:West Cumbria, United Kingdom
Favourite photographer: Marti Friedlander,Yuan Li, Andris Apse, Ansel Adams

Rhuari thank you so much for your kind words they are appreciated. I have looked at your page and you seem to have a good eye already, your flower close ups are excellent and your light painting looks good. Both are areas i have no experience in but appreciate  good shots when i see them. You will get plenty of support and encouragement here in DA, and that will help you with your course. Good luck with it all and I am sure your work will go from strength to strength.
