A spot of good news, this afternoon I went to the opening of the Joe Cornish Gallery Summer Open Exhibition in Northallerton, North Yorkshire. Joe Cornish is my biggest photographic inspiration and I am a big fan of his work, lots of which is local to me. The Summer Open Exhibition is a chance for other photographers to get their work displayed in the Joe Cornish Gallery and even offered for sale alongside Joe's work.
I was thrilled to find out two of my photos (shown below) were selected from well over 200 entries to appear in the exhibition. I was honoured and delighted to see my photos on the wall at Northallerton. There were some fantastic works alongside my two, not just landscapes but some portrait and wildlife shots, I would like to extend my congratulations to all the photographers who had work selected.
Here are the two that were selected;
I wasn't sure if this would be to the judges' taste, it not being a classical "pretty" landscape.
This was a very lucky shot grabbed as I set up for a really low contrast foggy landscape on the banks of Grasmere in the Lake District.
The Open Exhibition is on now at the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton.
