Difference between the two is in the lake district you can access all the land, public footpaths all over the uk. Here they do not exist, hence unless in national park etc, all your photography is done from the side of the road. I like to get into the landscape, be part of it, feel it, and try to convey that in my work.
Thank you my friend, this shot however was taken in the UK, and I would love to be back there photographing it. New Zealand is good, but the UK has many more photo opportunities, you don`t realise until you have left, then spend your time wishing you were back there!!
Well, I understand what you mean, Simon. I lived in Colorado for a couple of years and there are so many things (people) - even skies - I regret. At that time I was missing France and my family : I am happy I came back since my dad happened to know my sons before He left. But, I am sure the best pictures are the ones we keep in our hearts. Besides, I someone from UK would come in New Zealand that very person would find your land wonderful to take pictures ! Take care, my friend, enjoy the day.
Graeme, thank you, this shot is actually in the Langdale Valley, Cumbria, and if the truths told, I regret leaving the UK, believe it or not photography there is so much better than here in New Zealand. Hopefully in not too distant future I will return and pick up where I left off!!
