Flat Light & Barbed Wire Battles | Landscape Photography

In this week’s vlog I hike through the hills of the Isle of Man in search of three different picturesque ruins or Tholtans as they are referred to in Manx. I had never photographed or visited any of these ruins before so this was really an adventure into the unknown. However my trip takes an expected turn for the worst when I injure myself on a barbed wire fence. Thankfully the incident wasn’t too bad but it could have easily been much worse and highlights the dangers of adventurous solo trips into remote locations. To add to my woes my trip is plagued with flat light totally in contrast to the predicted weather. Do I manage to overcome these challenges and get an image? You’ll have to watch to find out.

As always, thanks very much for watching. If you have not yet done so, please consider subscribing for more videos in the future 😀
