At the end of each year I review what I have achieved with my photography and consider what needs to be done for the next year. More an exercise in review and planning than of New Year’s resolutions. Here is my choice of my best pictures from 2014. I have been a bit held back by work and health issues in 2014 so when reviewing my pictures, while I feel the best are some of my best ever.
I can’t help but feel I could have done a lot more,
time allowing and, while the health issues were out of my control the work side of it could have been better dealt with. That is NOT going to be repeated in 2015. By the end of March the current treatment should be complete and I expect to be 100% again. Work is being re-organised and the important stuff like photography and time with my wife and family will come much more to the front.
As you will see I do like being by water it’s my favourite place to be and to photograph. Several of these were taken on one magical morning; such days come along but rarely but the more time one spends out with the camera the more chance you have of encountering that magical light. The first rule of photography is to be there; the second be patient and of course you must always be ready!
To be ready is one thing, to be able to wait is another; but to seize the right moment is everything. Arthur Schnitzler
