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…)

Lies, Damn Lies and, er, Photographs

Lies, Damn Lies and, er, Photographs

We all know that a photo never lies.  Well that used to be the case (or did it?), but now you'd have to be pretty naiive to think that all you get with a photo is a faithful reproduction of the light bouncing back of a subject onto your sensor (or film). Our eyes are...

Thurlestone Beach

Who knew so many people would get married last Saturday? By late afternoon I'd been to four!  Not as a photographer, but in a supporting role as driver for my Hairdressing Partner, Sara. Another lunchtime Ginger Beer Shandy, this time in the Village Inn in Thurlestone...

Dartmouth Scudding Clouds

Another Saturday, another chauffeur mission to ferry my Partner to do bridal hair, found me with a couple of hours or so to kill in Dartmouth.  Obligatory visit to Alf Reseco for gorgeous coffee completed and it was off to find something to take photos of.  I'd wanted...

Sometimes we need a kick up the bum

I've had this site up for several months now and in honesty, hadn't devoted enough time to it.  Paid work, family and real life get in the way of our 'little projects' sometimes. In fact nearly all of the time, and so it should be. However, the need to process scores...

Mad Dogs and Photographers

We're told over and over again to take our Landscape photographs during the 'blue' hour or the 'golden' hour at either ends of the day when the shadows are long, the light soft and everything's rosy.  You get some lovely images at this time. 500px fodder to the max. ...

Aveton Gifford – Tidal Road

Aveton Gifford – Tidal Road

A bright April morning coincided with a high tide and an early wake up call from the rooks, so I nipped down to the Tidal Road at Aveton Gifford.  There's a great (still free) car park on the Timbers Roundabout at the bottom of the village on the main Kingsbridge to...

Don’t Wave Goodbye

Living near the coast it's all to easy to forget and take for granted what great things Waves are for Photographers. They come fast or slow, little or large, never exactly the same.  Oh, and they can wreck your gear if you get cocky and get too near or don't pay...
