Landscape photography can often be as much about the journey as the images we capture. Recently I headed off hoping to capture an image of snow covered mountains which involved a difficult walk and a steep ascent through hills and mountains. Although cold, the weather at ground level was pleasant for the time of year, but as I climbed higher I was met with increasingly strong winds and a temperature which was rapidly dropping. At the top of my climb the wind was so strong that I struggled to walk and it was impossible to steady my tripod enough to capture the image that I wanted. I had to settle for a different composition and faced a real challenge just to capture a sharp image let alone one I was happy with. On this day I didn’t capture one of my best images but I created memories of a day that I won’t forget. You can watch my journey here.
