When is the best time to go out and shoot landscape photos?

The natural beauty of the world is a great inspiration for me. The diverse landscapes I shoot, from the rolling hills of Gloucestershire to the rugged features of the Brecon Beacons and the Lake District, are a constant source of creativity and wonder. 

I am particularly drawn to the golden hours of sunrise and sunset when the light is soft and warm and the world is transformed into a breathtaking tapestry of colour and form. I have a love for capturing panoramic shots and for using long exposures to create a sense of time flowing and moving in my images. I believe that every photo should tell a story, and I use my 10-stop ND filter to capture the movement and flow of the world around me.
