TIP 3 – TAKING A WALK
Take regular walks – in the park, the woods, along the seashore, in the city or little towns, down along rivers and canals, in the fields and in different weather and lighting conditions.
Start looking at the sky (the colours, the location of the sun, the clouds, birds), the land including what’s in the foreground and in the background – the vegetation, the colour of the trees and the leaves, the ground, mountains etc.
Try watching the light over 10 / 15 mins and you will see how much it can change.
Take walks at different times of the day – and see the change in light and shadows.
A great place to go is the beach in Baldoyle Co. Dublin – I watched it one evening and in 10 mins it changed from a palette of blues, greys and greens to wonderful pinks, whites and blacks.
Also, bring your phone and take a few snaps. Below are 3no images, 2no. from my daily walks and the other the night sky outside my home.
