For years the outdoor photography I almost always undertook concerned mountains. This remains my greatest love because of their beauty and because it coincides with my hiking. It’s been a surprising process to discover how much beauty can be found at nature reserves and along the River Mersey, when you pay attention. Shots like this are very painterly. There’s a simplicity to them, a quality of not imposing anything, which I enjoy.
