Formby point, enjoying the simplicity of the Landscape.
I started the day early and I would like to say bright, but nope, I had a spot on man flu. I’d done my research and knew I was getting an incoming tide, not a big tide but enough to give me some interest in a very sparse environment. Formby beach and Ainsdale are known for there vast expanse of beach and very little else but I’ve learned from many previous visits, you can get some really dramatic clouds.
In this blog post, I’m not going to go on to much because all the details are in my video. I’m just going to show you my shots below and please take the time to watch, like and subscribe my video…
A little insight into this day, I set out with a concept in mind to simplify my photography. Also to slow down on the vlogging and try to just let things happen. Normally when I go out, I get so excited and caught up in the landscape, I think maybe I’m missing some of the best compositions. So I had a clear concept of, slow down and simplify. This then spiralled into the idea of minimalist photography.
The tide was slow approaching and the sands had stunning patterns and shapes being created as the tide made its way around the highs and lows in the sand. Now if you watched the video you will be asking, why did you go back? So if you haven’t watched the video, the shots and video is made up from two different days. Its quite simple why I split it. I needed to get my car fixed and a ride out to test the car was needed over the two days… This worked out really well, as the conditions on the second day gave way to a more painterly minimalist landscape. Great fun.
I hope you enjoyed the video and below are the higher resolution shots of the day. Thank you for taking the time to read and check out all my content.
