In the small village of Iken in Suffolk there is a lone dead tree which resides amongst the reeds in the salt marsh. What was once a nature reserve became a salt marsh following floods in 2013. This photo is of the top section of the tree, rising like Medusa into the sky. Even though the tree is no longer alive, beauty remains.
Russ Weymouth UNITED KINGDOM
I am a landscape photographer based in the UK. I love exploring woodland and hiking up mountains in search of amazing light and epic compositions.
I have a passion for photography and the natural environment. Growing up I was often exploring my local woodland, discovering hidden trails and new environments. Since I first visited Scotland in 1999, I’ve enjoyed hiking up mountains and roaming through forests.
Among my favourite locations which I keep returning to are Glencoe in Scotland and Snowdonia in Wales. If you find a place you love it’s worth returning there as the weather conditions and time of year can dramatically change the scene.
My first camera was an old Pentax film camera (I can’t remember the model!) and took to it instantly. This was years before digital cameras, let alone LCD screens, so the learning curve was steep. I remember the anticipation on waiting for the negatives to be processed, and the disappointment a few days later when I received the prints.
My first digital camera was the Canon 20D back in 2005. Several thousand photographs later with a few upgrades along the way I feel it’s time to share my photos and not leave them gathering digital dust on my computer.
