Over the moon to announce that one of my images received the award of “Highly Commended” in the Take a View – Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016 awards. I submitted several images and out of those several images one image got shortlisted. I was extremely pleased to get that far to be honest as this was my first ever competition I had entered.
I decided to give The Roaches in Staffordshire a visit. Its not far from mine I live in all fairness a short 30 minute drive away but I’ve always neglected The Roaches for Landscape Photography simply because when I first started shooting the weather was always so unpredictable and there was other places where you could guarantee a good shot. As the years have passed I have always admired other photographers scenes from The Roaches and kicked myself for not being persistent enough.
