Landscape Photography | From Sand to Shingle

In this, my first landscape photography adventure of 2018, I head to the Suffolk coastline in search of classics. Starting the day with a dawn shoot at Southwold and a row of lonely beach huts, we then head for Pin Mill to shoot wrecks. However, on route, we stop off at Shingle Street and I tick off one of my all time favourite locations. In doing this, the wrecks at Pin Mill was sacrificed due to time constraints, but I think it was well worth it!

  1. Really enjoyable video Simon. Both images were just so inspirational for those of us who are just picking up our cameras again after a long long break. The first had interest and colour throughout and though a million miles from calling myself a photographer, I personally felt you more than did justice to the shingle. The use of the Little Stopper created an amazing atmos in tandem with the detail in the sky. Loved the drone shots and music to. Many thanks for sharing your day.

  2. Shingle street is a tough place to shoot , just finding a good composition is a task within itself so fair play on your image. Shingle Street is becoming a popular choice , we have been going there for a few years now and always seems to change. Nice job in a difficult environment.

  3. The smile on your face when you nailed the shot brightened my day. Great to see a video with you out with a camera. Both of the images were brilliant and I really like the way you edit your shots, it’s almost invisible and nothing it over edited. I’m not sure if one of Lee Acaster got one of his Landscape Photographer of the Year on Shingle Street, one with the hut on it, I really like his work, his photography is so special. As soon as I get to East Anglia I tend to forget landscapes as it’s incredibly rich in wildlife. I’m really pleased to see you back, to me you are a true inspiration with your entire attitude to the natural world.

  4. Superb video Simon, and nice intro! I love Lee's low key and high contrast images, they really are other worldly, and do a great job of making the focal point grab your eye in the way they "grab" the light. Your image of the shingle island was fantastic! Glad to see you got a good day out of it.

  5. Nice to see that you have ventured into my neck of the woods. Can I ask when you mentioned wrecks, was that Pinmill near Ipswich or Orford as I don’t want to think I have missed something. I really enjoyed the vlog. Great quality 👍

  6. Good job on the shot of shingle island. I really like the long exposure shots and the effect they have on water. I have watched Lee Acaster's videos several times and his images are special but I'm sure he didn't just pop in, take the shots and leave as you did. I suspect he did many visits perfecting his approach. We each learn from each other and our own experience to bring our unique perspective. I enjoyed the video!
