Along the Way

If A was the beginning of a road trip and Z was my destination, then all the letters in between would be how many times I may stop to take photos along the way. Some of my most favourite photography has been taken alongside country roads.

Roadside photography is all about timing – being at the right place at the right time and being able to identify an opportunity when it is presented. I often find myself in two minds whether to pull over or keep on driving. Getting to a destination can take far too long if I were to stop every time I thought there was a chance for a good photo.

Many years ago I saw a spectacular sunset in the making. Instead of pulling over I tried to reach my destination ten minutes up the road. It turned out there was no way of seeing the sunset for the surrounding trees blocking my view. I have learnt since I won’t always make the right decision and just trying to be out and about with my camera will give me my best chance at capturing something special.
