Mother Nature and its powerful presence inspired my latest project Gloomy Skies. The 'Great British Weather' is often a hot topic of conversation, usually for all the wrong reasons. Looking up to find a cloud filled sky can be rather depressing for most of us, not to mention dull and uninspiring. I didn't believe that this had to be the case and I set about searching for its beauty. Initially I chose the classic approach of framing the land and the sky as a landscape photographer would do. I soon noticed, however, that there was nothing to distinguish my photographs from a flood of similar works from other artists. I knew I had to rethink the whole process. Having a keen interest in portrait photography I thought that perhaps if I placed the sky as a subject for a portrait I could potentially create some interesting results. The outcome was astounding, not only did I discover the true formidable beauty of the sky but also I found it powerful enough to stand alone, without support from the land.
I sincerely hope that you enjoy my new way of looking at the rainy days...
