I do have a passion for minimalism and I love to ‘see’ this sort of image. I noticed the couple walking along the beach and waited until I could capture them without anyone else in the frame – the beach was almost empty, so it wasn’t difficult. I’ve done very little post processing on this image, it stands on it’s own merit as a minimal composition.

We took a couple of days up in the Lakes last week. The weather was miserable, just pre-spring damp and dismal. We decided to head up over Kirkstone Pass chasing a glimmer of sunlight in the distance. We never quite managed to catch up with the sun, but we did enjoy a bracing ‘walk’ at the head of the pass. This was the view of the road below.
