The Long Wait


26 May 2017

Waiting; it’s what we do; kicking our heels by the tripod, waiting for that decisive moment which sometimes comes, but often doesn’t. Waiting for the gap in the clouds, or a shaft of light, or the mist to swirl, or the rain to stop, or the haze to be blown away, or the wind to die, or the sun to clear the hill, or the shadows to lengthen. Waiting for the light is an activity so familiar it was an obvious title for my first book. And then there’s the waiting for all the other intangibles too; the weather, atmospheric conditions and seasonal factors all of which can make or break a shoot. There’s no doubt about it; patience is a required virtue for any landscape photographer. But that’s fine by me; once I’ve found a good location I know the hardest bit is done; I’m then resigned to waiting for Mother Nature’s favour. I’ll just keep going back, again and again, until she smiles on me. It’s just a matter of time, isn’t it? But how much?
