When you live or spend some time in the UK, you soon realize there’s one thing the Brits have in common: we love to moan about the weather. “It’s too cold. It’s too hot. It’s raining... again!” No matter what’s happening, there’s a small weather forecaster inside us that loves to give its opinion. Luckily this month we’re joined by professional photograph Gary Clark, who enjoys taking his camera out to local landscapes and battling the elements to capture striking shots – whatever the weather.

“I’d never really consider shooting in the midday sun with no cloud,” he says, “but with my filters, I can go out no matter what. Ideally you’d have an overcast day to really open up the exposure time and shoot some silky-smooth images.” But this is England, and we work with what we’re kindly given by Mother Nature.
