  1. Love the image at 6:50! Very well done Steve. Very impressed with your channel. You've got yourself a sub. I'm new to photography vlogging myself and have just put together my first ever videos on my channel. I take great inspiration from yours 🙂

  2. Great video Steve. Captures the weather conditions well. I really like the first Ektar shot and the final B&W image with the millstones. Whilst I was watching I also noticed a couple of other compositions in the woods; I need to look through my shots again.

  3. If I wanted to see the those mossy, twisted trees, how far down are they from the north trail entrance on B6521 or in the town? The next time I come over, I would like to explore Padley.

  4. I really enjoy your videos, I've discovered them only recently. Thanks so much for taking all the effort to document your photo journeys so beautifully and for sharing your interesting thoughts. Keep up the great work!

  5. Steve this has got to be my favourite Video for me only because you where at my very favourite venue Padley Gorge, never taken my Large Format camera yet but will do so on my next visit , may i say visit there in the spring it’s so very different again not just an autumn and winter place to visit, when I’m there i also pop up to Bolehill quarry which is just as stunning, keep up to good work enjoy your work very much .

  6. nice work. One thing about overcast and misty conditions, you get very saturated colors and light. I need to go to Padly Gorge, with the FP4 and a green #11 filter it would make that moss really pop.

  7. I love the Millstone photograph Steve. I would do lots of dodging and burning in the darkroom to separate the different tones but that's just for my tastes 🙂

  8. Oh my goodness, this place was so magical! I kept thinking that fairies would jump out of the woods. And those trees! So twisted and their shapes… Really it was an amazing video Steve, great start for 2018.

  9. Possibly your best video ever, Steve… your video work is only surpassed by your images. Would love to know how heavy that 4X5 is – I usually drag a 6X6 (Bronica SQ series) + lenses around with me but I have been feeling the Siren Call of 4X5 lately. Wife is a bit dubious about my ability to outrun a bear while carrying a Sinar F tho (I live in BC, Canada).
