Based on the South coast of England, I have had a passion for landscape photography for a very long time, however it was the coming of the digital darkroom that really allowed my photography to develop. That said, I still consider myself a purist. Landscapes are best captured during the golden hours (1 hour before/after sunset) when the light has a special quality that cannot be replicated on a computer. I keep digital manipulation to a minimum and only for minor imperfections and enhancements
