There are many parts of England that are worthy of photography. From the Yorkshire moors, the picturesque Lake District, the changing face of what was the industrial north, through the flatlands of Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. London and the south Downs turning left into Hampshire and Dorset and over eventually Cornwall and Devon before heading north through some of Britain’s most beautiful counties to the borders of Scotland. All of this surrounded by a coastline so rich and diverse as to be enviable.
We all have our favourite parts of this sceptered isle that we return to armed with a camera to snap or even to buy a part of this unique land that attracts visitors from all over the world.
One of Britain’s most visited and importantly most visited by the Brits themselves is Devon – home to some of the finest beaches, spectacular cliff tops and picture postcard fishing villages that the country has to offer. Going inland and there are picturesque villages that Devon is famed for in which to enjoy a traditional Devon cream tea. Depending on the time of the year the bleak and isolated areas of Dartmoor and Exmoor offer a complete contrast. In their own very different ways. All of these diverse locations offer fantastic opportunities for landscape photography in any season of the year.
The southwest has become home to some of the best landscape photographers who have made their homes there purely because of a love affair with the spectacular and beautiful land that is Devon and it’s surrounds.
Britain’s rich and ever changing tapestry of landscapes, seascapes and urban skylines are ever crying out to the lens begging to be photographed in all their unique ia al their glory. One such Photographer is Dave Gibbeson who has focused his lens on his beloved Devon to great effect. People such as he promote the beauty of England to the rest of the world and at the same time give those of us a little reminder of what we have come to take for granted. So let us raise a glass and cheer these modern day artists who bring this country, in all it’s guises, to life.
