I started a new photography project in the summer which was to try and work within a mile of my house. It is easy to overlook what is right on your doorstep in favour of bigger gardens and more obvious landscapes.
It’s not my intention to shoot exclusively within a mile of my house, but to put additional effort in to doing so.
My first trips out were not as successful as I had hoped but there is lots of potential and I find making images with restrictions can be a real catalyst for creativity. In this case, it is location based but you could challenge yourself to only use a particular lens or only take a handful of images per day.
On one trip, out, the sunset was good but I struggled to find the view I needed to get the most from it. Instead, I started to concentrate on abstract images and clouds and often excluded the landscape all together.
This is the first image from the series and I will continue to work and add to it over the seasons until next summer.
