What was your path to becoming a Landscape Photographer & What was your first camera?
What was your favourite Landscape Adventure Story since becoming a Photographer?
Its hard to pick one out as a stand out story, I’ve lots that stick in my head but not for reasons I can describe in detail. I love storms and the more dramatic the better, especially beside the sea. One evening on the beach at Ballycastle I had been photographing the Pan rocks during a particularly high tide, the waves were massive and the sky had those huge types of dark cloud that just added to the scene, over Rathlin the first rumbles of thunder could be heard followed by lightening in the distance, there was no way I was leaving as the dark closed in and my hope was the lightening would get closer, by now the tide was almost at its highest and the waves were rolling right into the bank and every now and then I would have to lift the tripod and get myself onto higher ground to avoid getting wet, needless to say even with the wellies on I didn’t stay dry and found myself waist deep in water holding onto a fence that runs part of the beach, my tripod was set at a height of about 5ft so I dug it firmly into the sand and held on for grim death, we both came out of it unscathed but it was a lesson on how nature is always stronger. I did get a few lightening shots but nothing worth showing and the experience still makes me smile. It hasn’t stopped my fascination with the sea and I still get wet on occasions but only to the ankles.
