WordPress Birthday

Hello,  It’s now 4 years since I started writing this blog.  When I picked up the camera again after many years of absence I was encouraged by a friend, Marina Chetna, to start getting my photography out there and that is what I did.  I created a WordPress account.

The response to the work I have posted over the last four years has been humbling, the encouragement from fellow bloggers incredible.  I’ve come a long way.  I don’t want to turn this into a boast post, that’s not what I’m about but I’ve just been invited to write for Outdoor Photography, a leading landscape photography magazine in the UK, I have a piece that will be published in the March edition.  That has been rather special, along with the invitation to submit a book proposal, the Icelandic landscape in Winter.  Like I say, I’ve come a long way from taking a few landscape photographs when I could get out, in and around Cornwall to traveling overseas to places I wouldn’t have dreamed of visiting.  None of this would have been possible without the support of all of you.

I’m not a confident person.  I never have been.  The continued support and encouragement, the comments, the very real friendship and appreciation from those enjoying my photography has allowed me to peek my head above a parapet I might never have dared to even approach and the results have been incredible.  Thank you so much for that.

I thought very hard about the picture I might post.  There have quite a few over the last four years but for me, the photograph below came out on top.  My love of Iceland is known to many of you.  This country in winter is incredible.  It’s hard, it’s difficult but if you persevere as a photographer, the rewards are amazing.

This photograph was taken after traveling several miles from Vik in the most horrendous driving conditions possible.  The snow ploughs were working at full stretch.  Turning off the main Route One, we followed a road that had snow drifts so deep we were not at all sure we’d get through.  We did.

Setting up on the beach I thought this is absolutely crazy, the snow was falling so heavily, visibility was nil but then, just for an instant, the snow cleared and I could see exactly why I was there.  Capturing this scene with that single bird putting in an appearance was an absolute gift.  Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t.  This was an occasion when it most certainly did.

    Splendid shot of a splendid spot and, bonus, without tour busses, hurrah

    January 11, 2017 at 6:00 pm

    • Thank you harol! It has to be said the tour buses, certainly on my last visit were a real issue. Many of the photographs I’ve taken in Iceland in recent years would now simply not be possible given the very dramatic, and in my opinion, rather damaging rise in tourist numbers.

      January 12, 2017 at 9:35 am

  2. Congratulations! Your pictures are certainly magazine and book-worthy.

    January 11, 2017 at 6:07 pm

    • Thank you very much Debbie. Much appreciated! :-)

      January 12, 2017 at 9:36 am

    January 11, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    • Thank you very much Annie! It is exciting to be involved in these new projects. :-)

    You have great knowledge of your craft, Adrian, and your own unique vision! I, for one, am looking forward to what images you have for us next!

    January 11, 2017 at 6:24 pm

    • Thank you very much Sue. A lovely comment and very much appreciated! :-)

      January 12, 2017 at 9:37 am

  5. Gratulerer, ja herzlichen Glückwunsch , dear Adrian to your forth year with WordPress!! Your blog and your photography are outstanding and inspiring to all of us. Hopefully you stay a happy blogger for many, many years to come.
    We are so happy about the good news from Outdoor Photography, one of my favourite magazines in the UK! :-) Wow, I feel really proud! :-)
    The Icelandic image is a true gem, the light and lines are perfect and I feel almost hypnotized looking at it.
    Will be in touch per email very soon.

    • Thank you very much Hanne and Klausbernd. We have become very good friends as a result of blogging and following each other for a very long time. We certainly wouldn’t have met without WordPress and this is one of the things I love so much about blogging. I certainly plan to carry on! I enjoy it very much and the support and encouragement that comes from our community is second to none and priceless. :-) x

      January 12, 2017 at 9:39 am

  6. Congratulations on your achievements Adrian. Well deserved, your photos are an inspiration to most of us and you are so modest about your skills and talent. I hope that the new work doesn’t prevent you from blogging still as I for one always love to see one of your images appear in the Reader. Have a wonderfully successful, happy and healthy (as much as it is possible) 2017 and I wish you all the best.
    Jude xx

    January 11, 2017 at 6:45 pm

    • Thank you so much Jude for your lovely comment. It is comments like these that have kept me working when self-doubt has reared its head as I think it often does with most artists. This is why our community is so important to so many of us and I fully intend to remain a very active member of it. I too wish you all the very best for 2017 Jude. Thank you again. :-) x

    This is a stunning image Adrian. It speaks to me of isolation, wilderness, cold and beauty, but above all serenity. It sounds like you have found that through your photography. I would never have known you lacked in confidence with all you have achieved over the past 4 years. Here’s to many more years of wonderful photography for you.

    January 11, 2017 at 6:46 pm

    • Thank you so much Lee. This photograph was taken in one of those moments that happen along when you’re a landscape photographer, all the elements coming together. I hadn’t notice the single gull in the photograph until I got home and started processing. Perfectly placed, adding so much to the mood of the photograph it was a lucky moment. I’m certainly looking forward to many more years of photography to come! :-)

      January 12, 2017 at 9:44 am

When I recall how bewildered you were at the beginning of this journey, it brings tears and I can barely comprehend the distance you’ve come. I would say that God had a great plan for you all along.

    I’m very grateful your friend Marina encouraged you to start this blog. I always find your posts beautiful, thought-provoking, inspiring, or even — as this one has proven — goosebump-inducing. What an image! You may yet entice me to visit Iceland in the winter. Happy blog birthday, Adrian!

    January 11, 2017 at 8:22 pm

    • Thank you very much. I’m very grateful to Marina too. Iceland in winter is so very beautiful. The weather challenging at times but the rewards immense. I’m very happy to have had this opportunity to bring the beauty of Iceland to so many people! :-)

      January 12, 2017 at 11:19 am

  23. Congratulations with your four years of blogging and for being asked to write for Outdoor Photography. Personally I am not at all surprised by the latter. You have you own voice and take superb photos, which this one accomplishing the post clearly shows. It’s been great fun to follow you, Adrian, and I look forward to many more years.

    January 11, 2017 at 10:26 pm

    • Thank you very much indeed Otto. You have always been so encouraging and supportive as you are to so many photographers. Your work inspires, your photographs incredible and your words always so wise. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you and I hope that this year we’ll get the chance to meet and get to know one another a little better. That would be fabulous. Thank you once again for always being there with your words of encouragement.

    • Thank you very much. I’m very aware of so much ugliness in our world, the conflict and war. I really like to concentrate on the beauty, it’s my way of coping and with such turbulent times ahead of us, I will be immersing myself in my photography more than ever, concentrating on the beauty all around us. If only we could all just stop and see it.

I’m looking forward to it very much and looking forward to many more joint photography trips. We’ve had quite a few adventures one way and another. Who’d have thought we’d end up in Iceland in the middle of winter? Thank you Poppy. :-) xx

  45. It’s been fascinating watching you develop your art, Adrian…visiting those other parts of the world through your posts…. Congratulations on your four years and for the opportunities with the magazine and book deal. I do love this photograph, as well…such stark beauty…

    January 14, 2017 at 4:30 pm

    • Thank you Scott. It’s been great having you along on this journey I’ve been on for the last 4 years. It’s been incredible. The stark, raw beauty of Iceland and winter, its softer cuddlier side in autumn, it really is a stunning landscape and I feel very privileged to have been able to visit so many times now and bring these photographs back. Here’s to many more years for the both of us. All the very best for the new year. Adrian :-)

      January 16, 2017 at 1:36 pm

  46. Wonderful picture, capturing what few of us will ever experience. Thank You. M :-)

    January 14, 2017 at 4:51 pm

    • Thank you very much M. It’s been a privilege to be able to bring the Iceland landscape to so many. It truly is a stunning place to visit. :-)

      January 16, 2017 at 1:34 pm

  47. Congratulations Adrian! Your work and perseverance in the field is an inspiration and deserves all the recognition you have received to date. I hope you share more with us in 2017, including that book and many many mag features. Regards, Karen

    January 16, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    • Thank you very much indeed Karen for you lovely comment. It’s good to keep busy and I hope that I can keep up. What’s most important is enjoying my photography, without that, good photographs don’t follow. Looking forward to the year ahead. Thank you once again. :-)

      January 16, 2017 at 1:31 pm

  48. Congratulations; the recognition is well deserved. I so enjoy all your posts.

    January 16, 2017 at 1:10 pm

    • Thank you very much Vera. It’s nice to hear that you enjoy my posts. I will endeavour to keep them coming. :-)

      January 16, 2017 at 1:32 pm

  49. You have been on an extraordinary journey these past four years, Adrian, and it has been such a pleasure to witness this and share images with you. There is a magazine I look forward to reading in two months time and some of your other achievements are well known to me and all are richly deserved. This is a superb image and what a fantastic bonus to have a bird in the sky and in the right position – the Gods were smiling on you that day.

    January 16, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    • Thank you very much Andy. It has indeed been an incredible journey over the last four years and I don’t think it would have been possible without the encouragement I have received within the WordPress community especially from people like yourself whose photography I so admire. I didn’t see the bird in this photograph until I started to process it. It was just one of those things, the lone bird adding so much to the lonely, wild desolation of this beautiful beach in winter. The Gods were indeed smiling. Thank you again for all that you have done for me.

      January 17, 2017 at 12:28 pm

      • It has been a pleasure, Adrian. And you’re not the only one to find a little ‘inclusion’ when you start to process an image, that you had never spotted at capture.

        January 17, 2017 at 12:36 pm

      • Thanks Andy! It is nice when you get those little extras in processing you weren’t expecting! :-)

        January 25, 2017 at 3:13 pm

  50. Congratulations on your blogging anniversary! Your photography is breathtaking, and worthy of publication in any venue I can think of. I’m a latecomer to your blog, but so glad I found it. I look forward to every post.

    January 16, 2017 at 10:04 pm

    • Thank you very much Sylvia. It’s been an incredible four years and the support of the WordPress community has been amazing. It was great to meet you and Mr C. That wouldn’t have happened without the blog. This platform really does bring people together through their creativity and that’s brilliant. Thank you for being there Sylvia. I appreciate it very much. :-)

      • Hi Adrian –
        This is a delightful post – I’m happy for you, and your success inspires us. The photo is beautiful, as is the story.

        You just commented on my blog that you’re behind – well I’m beyind behind at this point, but life happens. I write this on my phone in the icu with Joe. He’s doing much better. And I met our fellow blogging friend Scott who lives here in Phoenix – isn’t that cool? So it’s an intense mix these days. Glad I had a minute to visit with you.

        Thank you for posting and for commenting and for being yourself.

      • Hi Lynn,
        I’m sorry to hear you are in the ICU with Joe but glad to hear he’s doing much better. What happened. I’ve been out of the loop for some time as you know now. No Internet where I have been staying.
        I hope that things continue to improve. My thoughts are with you. Adrian x

  58. Well deserved recognition! More please.

    • Thank you Elena. I’ve been heavily involved in a photography project for the last year. Total immersion, s state I know you will recognise as an artist. It all has to be perfect and yet it never is. Seems OK at the time when one processes a picture and then one looks back and it’s not. I’ve been a little absent from the blogosphere as a result of this near obsession but hoping to start posting and visiting blogs again very soon.
