South Hams Landscape Photography
The South Hams are a wonderful place to take landscape photographs. It’s an area which (in my view) has the most the amazing views and locations. Whilst taking landscape photography in the South Hams is not my job, it IS important to me. Mix my love of getting fresh air and penchant for tinkering with gadgets then send me out with my Camera and I’m happy.
I’m out most often around the most Southerly area of the South Hams taking landscape photographs in and around Kingsbridge, Salcombe, the lovely beaches at Bantham, Bigbury and Thurlestone as well as along the breath taking South West Coastal path running from Wonnel Beach all the way to Torcross and beyond.
I sometimes venture up onto Dartmoor to take landscape photographs there. Catching a summer sun rise over the moor is something worth getting out of bed at 3:30 for! My favourite areas for taking landscape photographs on Dartmoor would be around Hound Tor in Winter or in spring the Bluebell Lawn at Halwell. Oh, and the river Dart. So much choice, thank goodness I’m not limited to a roll of 36 exposure on 35mm film anymore!
It’s not all Beaches and moorland sunsets though…
However, I don’t only take Landscape Photos in the South Hams, I do sometimes go for moving targets such as people or wildlife or buildings (they don’t normally move by the way…)

A lovely February walk along the Cliff tops from Overbecks in Salcombe towards Bolt Head. I'd not got a lot of time, so it was a brisk march towards the cliff tops. A couple of walkers ambling along enjoying the view were greeted with a smile and a "Good Morning"...read more
I was out in the fresh air quite some time today, a trot around the Great West Run Half Marathon in Exeter this morning then out to Bantham Beach in the gusty golden hour. To be honest, I'd had a long sleep in the bath after the run, so missed the current weather...read more
I'd not been to Dartmouth Regatta before, not because I didn't want to, just that I'd always been doing something else when it was on. An early escape from work allowed the unexpected opportunity to break my Dartmouth Duck. My main interest was to see if I could...read more
Well, no fair maidens to be seen this morning, but a lovely quiet windless dawn after a colder night gave ideal conditions for mist in the Avon Valley at Aveton Gifford. The obvious view points for 'mist in the valley' landscape photography shots are from the main...read more

How lens dirt ruined my photos We just can't help taking dirty pictures. However, it's not what I had planned when I crept from the warm covers at 3:45 this morning to see if I could catch the Sunrise falling on Salcombe from Snape's Point. No matter how fastidious...read more
