Lockdown Landscapes

So how is everyone doing? It's been an extraordinary three months. Hopefully, we can start to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

When the UK finally followed the rest of Europe and locked down, life was pretty much as normal for me. I was in the middle of doing what I do every March; updating portfolios, printing images, and testing new things out. Unfortunately, a month later I was starting to climb the walls. With restrictions on movement and social distancing, there wasn't a lot for me to do photographically except take a camera with me on my daily walk. This is something I haven't done for more than ten years. Sure, I take my phone, but this usually involves a more casual mindset. It's there in case I see something, rather than being a reason to look for pictures. Taking a camera with me was novel at first, but quickly became the norm. I started to shoot the places I see every day and this became a wonderful antidote for lockdown. I took inspiration from David Alan Harvey and his project on the Outer Banks and decided to use this time to put the start of a project together. These are some of the images I've taken within the past couple of months.
