Landscape photography has never been a main subject for me. Mostly I isolate details, rather than look at the wider view. Although I remember taking the picture, a rock or tree photographed at close range could be anywhere and the location can lose significance. As with everything, there are exceptions. Certain places enjoyed for hiking have been a great source of wonder, pleasure and gratitude. Over the years, I have occasionally taken a camera along. Mostly I did not. Close to ten kilos of equipment can easily detract from the joy of the hike, especially when a climb is involved.

Weather was also a big factor in the UK, not much point of lugging those ten kilos in drizzle. Once in a while, conditions and enthusiasm coalesced with the right vista. In those situations, the pictures that emerged are very much about place: open spaces that filled me with delight. It would be great if some of this delight comes through to the viewer. These landscapes include a dominant amount of sky. When this is not obvious, clouds are providing a reflection or the sky is hosting a sunset: hence the title – Earth Meets Sky.
