Images like this are made or broken by split seconds. What I really like about this image is that all four legs are completely off the ground. You can’t plan for this you can only fire a burst and hope to capture the moment.
This is one my favourite places to work in the UK due to its unique nature. The mountain goats can be found high up in an abandoned slate quarry which offers so many photographic opportunities. The environment is littered with old building which have long been left to fall into ruin by spending time with the goats we were able to learn that they would use these buildings to shelter from the rain.
What strikes me the most about this series is how they look like a studio set up by in fact they are wild goats in their natural habits and all light was provided by a small opening to the right of the goat.
With the heavy rain forecast all week I know where I'll be heading later this week.
Over the past few years I’ve been working on and off with the local Canada geese. I’ve mentioned this many times but there really is no better way to hone your photographic skills then to work locally and with accessible subjects. One of the best things about working locally especially at this time of year when your alarm is set for silly o clock. Is you can crawl out of bed just before sunrise and be on site in a matter of minutes then back to bed once the best conditions are over.
This Image was taken a few years back high up in the Carneddau mountains. It’s an area close to home and one I love to spend time hiking/exploring. What’s everyone’s favourite natural space not necessarily to go with the camera just to spend time and unwind? I’d love to hear your answers 😃
