I’ve always loved photography, either taking them myself or seeing them in exhibitions. So when I saw The Guardian’s latest photography awards, I just had to post my favourite ones here. It’s focused on the beauty and diversity within the British landscape, with categories including Living the View, Classic View and Your View. Feel free to share your favourite or try and guess which was the overall winner.
Nature never fails to amaze me. This kaleidoscopic set of wondrous colours was quite the sight when looking out of the window.
Regular readers will know how big a fan of photography I am. Especially of The National Geographic, with previous posts including National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year 2017, National Geographic Animal Photographs and Spectacular National Geographic Images. So when I saw a Guardian article highlighting the celebration taking place I just had to share my favourites with you too. As always feel free to share any of your favourites or any experiences of the places or animals involved.
Taken when out in the Inner Circle in Regent’s Park. The weather was so glorious I just had to go for a picnic with friends.
With Storm Emma, aka The Beast from the East, being in full throttle, I just had to show you how much impact it has had in London. These are from Canary Wharf.
Along with JMW Turner, George Bellows, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne has long been an artist whose work I admire greatly. So I was never not going to see the Cézanne Portraits at the National Gallery. As you’d expect, it really was a joy to the visual senses and I hope those anywhere near London are able to see it before it closes on the 11 February. It got me thinking which of the French Post-Impressionist paintings I liked most. You can find them below. Do you have a favourite? Where does Cézanne rate for you compared to other artists?
I’ve displayed quite a few photographic exhibitions in the past, such as this year’s National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year and Astronomy Photographer of the Year. But I do try try and show photographic events I’ve been to in person too. So it’s no real surprise I’ve added a third post to parts 1 and 2 of my time at the Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park. As always feel free to let me know if there were any in particular that caught your eye.
The Enchanted Woodland exhibition really was creatively executed, with all kinds of colours and light patterns. So much so, that I just had to include some more of the photographs to go along with the ones I posted in Part 1. I’ve included a variety so feel free to let me know which one appeals to you most.
I went to the delightful Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park yesterday. It was really was magical with sumptious and imaginative light displays. I took so many photos I’m going to put this in two parts. Is there one photo in particular that stands out to you? Has your lcoal area got into the same spirit?
I missed The Astronomy Photographer of the Year when it came out earlier but when I saw the entries they blew me away so much I just had to highlight some of them. They really do make you aware of the beauty of the world above us. Do you have a favourite? Can you guess the winner? Feel free to guess the one I liked most too if you like.
