In the continuation of exploring rural areas during my NMP, I visited Haweswater Reservoir, an incredibly large water catchment in the Lake District that supplies most of the North West’s water usage.
For this, I produced a significant amount of landscape images representing the reservoirs distinctive physical attributes; scale, design, flow, rurality as well as its surrounding features within very favourable photographic conditions. This created very scenic backdrop for the subject matter, especially in terms of colour contrast – cool blues of the water against the warm colours of the local geological features and tree coverage.
The result was a series of landscapes that represented its organic beauty and separation from much of mankind’s influence, whilst acknowledging the man made characteristics that shape its function and purpose.
Overall, I think that this was a successful shoot in terms of developing landscape imagery.
I will update my progress.
