Landscape Photography – Success with Repeat Visits



I was a little concerned as I wandered around an unfamiliar area of moorland with the sun quickly rising and no composition in mind. I yomped around through the thick heather, looking for something that I could work with under the conditions. It was getting a bit late by the time I found a fabulous tree but what a find it was. I’m getting to know the tree quite well now and I’m determined to make a wintry photograph that showcases it in all its delicate and cascading glory. When limited to your local landscape for photography, a healthy dose of determination makes a big difference. I think my results improved with each visit and my interpretation of the tree changed with the conditions and as I familiarised myself the details of the tree.

    I think these are my favorite photos of yours from the entire year… Extremely beautiful photos; feels like a complete set just off of these weeping birches.

    In the version with pines behind I would try filtering quite sharply for the cool green of the pines and reduce the saturation of that tone range drastically to almost grey. I would keep the warmer green tones of the mold on the silver birch limbs untouched.

    Great channel Simon. I like the way you give an insight into your thought process for your images which are always brilliantky executed. I love woodland, I have lots of woodland round the area thst I live in but I have to admit to struggling with the subject myself. Sometimes just being out is enough and I don't always take any images.
    I would like to ask about your tripod head, it's very unusual and I've never seen one quite like it. What made you choose that particular one?

    99% of YouTube 'photography' channels = gear reviews. Simon Baxter's channel – a REAL photography channel. Ideally, more channels/ photographers will learn a thing or two from Simon's approach. Good stuff Simon, keep it up.

    Beautiful as always Simon. There’s a real feeling to the landscapes down there. We’re all a bit wild and rugged, yours feel calmer and more gently accessible. Hmmm, we should talk about that 😀

    You reminded me of that one tree in my local park I keep going back to. It's already given me one of my fav photos, but I'm sure there's a lot more to make with that beautiful one. Oh and I liked that "cascade" photo a lot. Thanks for giving me a chance to experience "proper" nature, even if only vicariously.

    Loved the last few images of that tree, brilliant work. Your videos have such a calming influence, they’re good for the soul.

    I love the image you’ve called "Cascade" , certainly my favourite so far. Look forward to seeing the next instalment from there 🙂

    Hi Simon. Great ideas come by surprise probably more than we realise it. I keep good photography areas on my GPS and often I go back and try to make a better composition or just wander around looking for new photo ideas. It doesn’t always work out though. At least I’m happy to be learning from Blokes like yourself. Our Aussie bush areas aren’t like the U K but I keep trying. Our bush is very harsh but there are photos out there and I will keep on keeping on. Stay safe.

    Beautiful images. I find your work so inspiring especially when you seem to find order out of the chaos of the forest. I find it so frustrating trying to achieve that when photographing my local bushland and rainforest (SE Australia). I will keep trying and will continue to be inspired by your images. Thank you for sharing.
