Losing Your Landscape Photography Mojo

Welcome back to everyone and I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and wish you all a very Happy New Year.

2017 was an interesting year for me as far as landscape photography went, I left the coast alone pretty much all year and concentrated on inland areas mainly due to wanting a change and because of my beloved puppy who I felt wasn't ready for dangerous swelling seas and cliff tops just yet, instead we just got chased several times by killer cows !

So much for inland being the safer option !

I managed to get to a few places I have wanted to go for many years including Snowdonia, The Lake District & Scotland, these were real eye openers and they really spurred me on with my adventures.

On the negative side I had such a bad experience in the Lake District that it also knocked my confidence and passion for photography.

On top of that between October & February my work goes into over drive and I spend all day working then come home and work for another 5-6 hours almost every night through sheer volume of bits that need doing.

It is physically & mentally draining and it left hardly any time for landscape photography sadly.

Between October and the 1st of January I only managed to get out three times in two months which was soul destroying.
