CLIMBERS IN THE DISTANCE

June 10, 2023

Hi Everyone

Well here I am walking along with my compact camera or phone and I see this shot. However it's nothing special, and that's the lesson. All the photos we take cannot be brilliant, or should I say GREAT. It's a pretty shot up a gorge that has some climbers traversing. I did a 30 second edit and cropped into a portrait orientation to try and help emphasise the height. The light on the trees is sympathetic and it's all really nice, but it would not win any competitions. I will keep it and I share it here with a smile as I had a lovely walk and the climbers added a bit of drama.

Do not be scared of taking and keeping a photo you like, remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you like it then that's all the counts. However the other side of the coin is on balance I bet we take many more photos, especially on our phones, than we really should. We can easily become overwhelmed. Try and have a sort through and delete the really duff shots and only keep the ones that mean something, notice I did not say good ones, the ones that mean something. I often find if you leave it a few weeks and then sort through your photos it's easier. I think the emotions have reduced and one can be more self critical and sort quicker.

For this sort of shot I would say try and get it right at the time. Look, think what you are trying to achieve and only take a few, then maybe change location as who knows around the next corner could be an even better view point.
