Keen (obsessed) amateur photographer #NP70Moments Winner

I am a freelance graphic and web designer based in South Manchester, but I love to unwind from the pressures of work by watching the sunset from a hillside or rocky edge (especially in the Peak District) - or maybe even watch it rise, if I can get myself out of bed…  

Despite being more of a keen (obsessed) amateur than a professional, I’m pleased to have been featured on BBC and Sky News and to have had images published in UK newspapers - mostly due to winning the Campaign for National Parks #NP70Moments competition in early 2019 with an image of Parkhouse Hill, but also for other images of the local area.

Curbar Light | Peak District National Park  Another take on yesterdays sunrise. The light on these stones jutting out into the valley was lovely and picked out their textures. These provided the base of the shot I shared yesterday, but I wanted to find an image where they were quite literally front and centre!  Im rather partial to shooting wide-angle in a portrait orientation as it puts a lot of weight on foreground elements like this. There was no real subject in the background (as pretty as the scene is) so this was a good candidate for a shot which is all about the foreground.  Canon 80D, Tokina 11-16mm

I really love this shot. The depth is fantastic as the eye is drawn to the stones and then into the distance, across multiple horizons.

Beautiful 🙂

Beautiful photo, it makes you wonder what formed and shaped those rocks in the first place.🥰🥰🥰

Beautiful. Loving those soft colours.

Great photo

Curbar Sunrise | Peak District National Park  A new location for me this morning - thanks to Tony suggesting a trip out - but one Ill be heading back to for sure.  A cold start to the day (nice that it actually felt like winter for a change). The sun was rising slightly behind the edge, but the natural curve in the rock created a base for the image to balance the sun on the left.  Canon 80D, Tokina 11-16mm

Beautiful photo Kieran, it is a lovely view from up there. I live a few minutes drive away from there, but always appreciate it.🥰🥰🥰

The Golden Couple | Peak District National Park  Taken last October on a very misty morning up on Winnats Pass. Normally the mist sits in the Hope Valley, but on this morning it was blowing down from the higher ground behind us.  As the sun rose and covered everything in a golden haze, I spotted a couple by the pinnacle stone, along the edge of the pass from where I was shooting. My low position on the hillside meant that they broke the skyline a bit too, which I think helped with the composition. A bit of mist is always a bonus for simplifying a scene too!

Nice

Lovely!

Such a special place😍

Again: 1: Awesome! 2: I don't know how you do it! 3: Is your photo book coming out soon?

Really thoughtful piece Kieran and what a difference between the image above and the one you took previously. Food for thought. I often leave places with a bag of rubbish and I've also noticed grass verges and hedgerows seem to have lots of rubbish in them these days obviously thrown from cars 🙁

Interesting and thought-provoking, thanks for sharing.

Good thoughts Kieran. Love the Stanage shot too.

Fantastic

Very nice mate, gorgeous light ☺️

Lovely rich tones

Lovely picture 🙂

Lovely light hitting the dunes, and little sandy path . Nice Capture! ☺👍

Agreed the texture and warm light make this so inviting...a natural duvet for some well earned rest!

Fantastic image !

Lovely shot

Beautiful colours and so much texture! I love it.

Thanks so much Kieran! Through the competition we want to show everyone the amazing worlds right on their doorstep in the hope that together we can protect & improve it for future generations!

Mymbyr Light | Snowdonia National Park  Heres one thats been sitting on my hard drive for a couple of months. Theres a lot I really like about - the mood, the curve of the lake and especially the mirror-smooth water.  The reason Ive not shared it is because I blew out the highlights in the gap in the cloud. Even though its made of three shots to allow for the extremes of brightness, I still got it wrong. Its a lesson in taking more time - I was definitely rushing when I took it, and didnt check the exposure carefully enough.  But, at the end of the day, I like it, so I think Ill share it anyway, niggles and all. Im sure I could make a motivational anecdote out of it - about imperfections not diminishing our value... or something...  Canon 80D, EF-S 17-55mm

nice mate, tbh that gap was so bright I think I blew the highlights as well lol!!

Kieran it’s a lovely image. It’s very very hard to not clip the highlights slightly in a scene like this and if you hadn’t have said I wouldn’t have even noticed! Out of interest, if you were not rushing what would you have done differently? If you had taken a image even more stops under would this have looked unnatural unless seamlessly blended and adjusted? Or do you mean to wait for the right light? I like the shot 👍

Talacre Dawn | North Wales  I really loved the light we had on Sunday morning - considering it was a borderline forecast, we were very fortunate indeed. There were plenty of brooding low clouds - nice and moody - but they started to break at sunrise revealing hints of a bit of show going on above. Plus, the low tide meant there were pools in the sand to reflect it all.  All in all, fab conditions for shooting!  Canon 80D, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

Talacre Gold | North Wales  In Feb, Im off to Skye with a few chaps from the club. Were attempting to squeeze four of us into one car (with all our collective gubbins) so we thought wed best have a trial run. So, yesterday morning we loaded up Tonys Mondeo (which has a much bigger boot than we expected) and popped over to Talacre for sunrise.  The forecast was for thick cloud, but breaking around sunrise - and it was right on the money. Some lovely colour at dawn, and when the sun made an appearance the sidelight was warm and golden.  The tide was coming in, but there were plenty of ripples and pools in the sand to choose from for a foreground.  Canon 80D, Tokina 11-16mm

It was a really productive outing :)  I dont often recognise influences in my images - I think that requires some awareness Ive not quite got yet, but in this one I saw a similarity to the work of Matt Oliver Photo. I might be over-thinking it, but equally, hes one of the people Ive paid attention to over the last few months, and if youve not seen his work, Id recommend taking a look :)  Canon 80D, Tokina 11-16mm

Ramshaw Sunset | Peak District National Park  ** A few calendars back in stock! **
All proceeds to PSC Support - http://bit.ly/kmcal2020  Took a trip to the Staffordshire end of the Peak to road test the newly replaced camera yesterday, and came away with some images Im really pleased with.  I only realised on the way home, that my first shoot of 2019 was a trip to this location on New Years Day, so its nice to bookend the year with trips to the same place and reflect on whats happened in between. That first trip was a bit of a washout - murky, drizzly and disappointing but it was part of a decision (or even resolution) to get out as much as possible this year.

Þingvellir Sunset  With best wishes to everyone for a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!  Many thanks for all the encouragement and support this year. Its been a really exciting 2019, and your involvement in many ways means a lot to me. I hope youve had a great year too.  Im still without my camera (but not for much longer all being well) so heres a gorgeous wintry scene from when Susie and I visited Iceland back in January.  On the Golden Circle tour, guide took us to a spot he knew at Þingvellir which was slightly off the beaten track. It had been snowing hard most of the day, but we arrived as the clouds broke - pristine snow, and a stunning golden sky. An afternoon well remember for a very long time.

Lovely shot bud.

Morning Light on the Hope Valley | Peak District National Park  I have a tendency to shoot into the sun at sunrise/set, but for this one Id faced the other way as the light was catching on the rocks and heather. It was great to also get a view right the way down the valley, the plume of smoke/steam being the familiar cement works at Castleton.  Canon 80D, EF-S 17-55mm

Great shot Kieran (and as one that does the same like we’ve discussed!). Cracking view of the cement works from up there isn’t it (and any inversions), didn’t realise this myself until the other day too.

Love this shot Kieran. The sun is setting off the rocks and heather really nice with a lovely backdrop also! Great composition. ☺👍

Stunning
