When the fog rolls over the rocky hills of Bodmin moor, it is easy to lose your sense of direction. You only have to read Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn to understand how the moors can be claustrophobic and foreboding. But for a landscape photographer, these can be the best conditions for some atmospheric photographs.
Bodmin moor in Cornwall is a fantastic location. There’s something both mysterious and enchanting about them. I love how the bracken changes colour with the seasons; how the rocks and boulders seem ageless. When the weather is clear, the moors feel like they could stretch on forever.
We were heading up to Bideford via the ‘Atlantic Highway’ (a.k.a. The A39). It is a long, twisting road, that seems to take forever. We made a stop at Rough Tor, near Camelford and took a little break by walking to the top of the hill to do a quick recce for a future landscape shoot. We had hoped for a beautiful sunset… but the low lying clouds and mist looked like they were going nowhere. It was a beautiful walk, regardless of the weather. I hope to go back some day when the conditions are just right.
Landscape Photographer undertaking commissions
If you have a favourite location, have you ever thought about commissioning a professional photographer to create some memorable wall art?
That is exactly what I do. I listen to what you love about a location, the reasons, which parts. And I use that to study a location until I get the right image for you. Then I use this image and print it on a top quality, luxury fabric print so that you can treasure it forever.
