Time for a re-fresh

Now it is time to refresh Macs Photography website.

HI, as any regular visitor to my website will know, I have not been updating very regularly. I am now in the process of correcting and refreshing my site with new and updated look and images. Thanks for your patience, and watch this space. Browse my images or follow my updated blog posts as I make improvements. Like all major undertakings this process will take time as I need to create new images and review new topics, all of which are time consuming. If you don’t have the patience to wait then sorry, but good things take time. If I rush it will not be the quality that I expect of myself or would want to deliver. Any major project is time consuming but quality takes time.

 

My office for the day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My Office for the day working for the National Trust, found me west of Prawle Point looking towards Gammon head in the near distance.

One of the most scenic and stunning views I have seen in five years working for the trust. A cold but very bright day went unnoticed as I was completely lost in the beauty of my surroundings, and gathering the images for the job.

This part of the Devon coast requires you to have the stamina of an Olympic athlete and the agility of a mountain Goat. The coastal path winds up and down steep cliff edges, and weaves between other worldly rock formations as you make your way along the path.

Also to be seen on this stretch of the coast are Orthostats, or ancient field boundaries whose exact age are not known. Evidence that at some point this part of the coast was heavily farmed by our ancestors.

Easily accessible for the fit and able, this path is quite daunting for the infirm or those among us who remember being a twenty something only vaguely. It is though, manageable  with care, and a realization of your own limits. Anyone who wants to get out and enjoy this stunning piece of our local coastline, get going.

 

Good weather

As I look  out of the window I can breath a sigh of relief that some good weather is finally arrived. Which is a blessing because I have two commissions for prints which are not possible without some good weather.  A recent shoot for the National trust was made all the more pleasant with some sunshine and the shots will be up on their Rangers web blog soon.
