My Flickr Faves January 2017


Well it has now been a year since I started choosing my monthly favourite images by other photographers, and it seems to have been well received. As it is the start of a new year, I have decided to add a few honourable mentions at the end of the post. Sometimes it is really hard picking just three images, so I thought it would be nice to mention the other photographers and their pictures that almost made it. Like before my chosen images will be put together in a gallery on Flickr along with all the previous ones.

Curbar mist by Matt Oliver

Curbar mistAs soon as I saw this picture I knew it was going to feature in this month’s selection. I’m sure you will agree, the misty light in this picture is stunning. From the highlights on the foreground rocks to the rays in the distance, it all adds tremendous interest and depth to the image. Apparently moments before this, the visibility was only about 20 feet due to low cloud. I can just imagine the joy that Matt felt as this scene began to appear in front of him.

Frosty Footpath by Robert Birkby

Frosty Footpath

Robert has captured a super image here with some lovely sharp detail. I love the way the hoar frost frames the path into the woods. Then that path draws you into the wood and the lovely soft mist in the background. Beautiful work Robert.

Spine by Neil Burnell

I could probably pick a top three from just Neil’s pictures alone. Neil definitely has a eye for what makes a great image. It was a close call between this one and his Stilts image from the Essex Coast. But this one just had the edge as I’m a sucker for a moody mono square. I like the way this has the feeling that he has travelled to the end of the earth to capture it. The mixture of the jagged rocks and the curve of the shoreline also work really nicely together. Keep up the good work Neil!

Well done Matt, Robert and Neil.
