Images of Goa India

Here is a  selection of photographs taken whilst on holiday in Goa India. The gallery contains landscape photography taken in GOA and some portraits of the people of India.  All the indian people who appear in the photos from GOA gave permission to be photographed and some of the poorer people I paid a small fee to help them with their daily struggle for survival. The images were taken throughout North Goa at  Anjuna Flea Market, Anjuna Beach, Chapora, Arambol and Terekhol North Tip of GOA.

Whitby Abbey Award Winning Landscape

This image of Whitby Abbey is another image I am very proud of as it was awarded the coveted Gold Award for Landscape photography from the S.W.P.P. As you can see the image has excellent depth of field and the light really brings out all the tones and textures of this iconic building. The reflection of the Abbey in the water acts as a leading line for the veiwer and really adds to the images depth and composition.

Whitby cottages

The mystery and beauty of Whitby Abbey has inspired a multitude of artists, from the exquisite watercolours of J.M.W. Turner, to the dark writing of Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula. The eponymous vampire comes ashore at Whitby – both the town and the Abbey’s majestic graveyard feature heavily in this classic horror story. This legacy has led to Whitby’s macabre yet charming reputation. There are exciting ghost walks, charming Whitby cottages (said by some to be haunted!) and Whitby Goth Weekend, a tongue in cheek celebration of gothic culture and Bram Stoker’s masterpiece.

Derwent Reservoir Award Winning Landscape

Landscape photography requires a lot of patience and taking this shot of the Derwent reservoir in Derbyshire was no exception. I had to wait for the water to be still to create the perfect reflection. I also had to wait for the light  on the woodland to show the beautiful golden autumn colours of the trees. This landscape photograph won me another Gold award for Landscape photography from the SWPP.  The reservoir is located on the A57 near to the YHA Crowden Youth Hostel

The reservoir is one of a network of reserviors between sheffield and Glossop used to train Lancaster Bomber pilots to deploy the bouncing bomb. During the war the pilots put the training into practice and breached German Dams the  Möhne and Eder. The dams were also used as a film location in the black and white film The Dambusters. By the time they remade the film in colour the war was over so the colour version of the film was actually made in Germany.

This is an image I am very proud of as it won the highly coveted S.W.P.P. Gold Award for Landscape photography. The S.W.P.P. esteemed judges are highly critical and only give awards to images deemed to be of the highest standard in the country. This image went on to be published in Professional Imagemaker magazine and  has been printed and framed for a handful of discerning buyers. The image is the view from Dovestone sailing club looking out across Dovestone Reservoir Greenfields Saddleworth. The jetty in the image often moves with the wind and under current of the reservoir so I had to be patient waiting for both light and tide. My advice to anybody looking to take up landscape photography is get into the same mindset as a fisherman; be patient and aware that you may sit for hours and not catch a fish. Don’t think this is a wasted trip because although you have not come back with a great picture, you have had the opportunity to relax and to meditate on the beauty of the landscape.
