I know why I’m a rubbish people photographer. I’m less sure why I’m a mediocre landscape photographer.
Some would say good photography lies in being passionate about the subject. I would say it’s about understanding the subject. And mostly, I think I understand landscape. The problem I have is that I don’t find the “freezing a moment in time” rationale commanding enough. And the “chocolate box lid” possibility worries me to death. I want a narrative.
I don’t really have a narrative for this shot. It is a moment frozen in time. I was there, it causes me to remember. You weren’t there but you can make up your own narrative if you want. Gloomy light? Reflection? Stillness? It’s up to you.
