Echoing around Moss Rigg quarry, the evocative call of a peregrine falcon accompanied the taking of this photograph. Looking into this deep and gaping lesion, these tall larch trees somehow gathering enough light to prosper; a magnificent union of sight and sound in harmony at this tranquil landscape.
Colin is first and foremost a lover of the landscape and in particular the Lake District, being a regular visitor over 30 years. Inspiration for Colin’s photography derives from his connection with the landscape itself, a photographer of the ‘place’ more than the ‘location’. His work at Thirlmere, Delamere Forest and Holme Fell reveals the developing narrative of the land and how nature strives to meliorate the open wounds left by our intervention.
Seeing beyond the obvious is important to Colin and so he allows repetition of visits and the passing of time to reveal both the intimate and wider scenes that are typical of his photography.
