Travel photography [Dec. 28th, 2015|10:41 pm]

No surprise that at this time of year the Guardian Travel supplement hasn't had much of interest to say. But it's been making up for it with some very pretty pictures.

Last week they published three Instagram pictures from Max Avdeev taken in Yakutia. If there's a way to link to Instagram to show only photographs tagged 'Yakutia' by a single photographer, I have yet to find it, but the tag 'cold assignment' seems to be all his own. More photos on his website, especially these of Kotelny Island.

Thuis week, the Big Picture featured this amazing image from Chase Guttman (website), who has won Young Travel Photographer of the Year (same link leads to some fine photographs of Iceland in a younger age group). What amazingly well-travelled young people these are...

Poking around the internet I found this BBC article about another set of prizewinning photographs. My travel envy was alleviated by the realisation that my favourite set had been taken on Spittal beach in Northumberland (you have to scroll right down the page to see them).

These are all stunning photos, and I wish mine were half as good. But every now and then I'm quite pleased with one. This is my favourite from our pre-Christmas visit to London:

I like your photo. It's a good composition, without trying so hard (like the ones in the links).

Thanks! The pictures I linked to are amazing, I think - but I admit, some of the others on the same pages made me think 'I could do that!'

It was just that time of twilight that makes the most of any light that's around...

You *should* be pleased with this one--it's most excellent. The longer I look, the more I like it, and I liked it on first glance, so...

Thank you. All I did was point and shoot, but it worked, so I'll take the credit for that!
