George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I was staring out of a train window at a foggy Bedfordshire, wishing I was out with my camera. I was taken by the way the middle-distance faded into the grey. That’s a fantastic property of mist, which photographers love to employ as it emphasises the depth in a scene. It occurred to me that if I was able to find a landscape with a flat enough middle-distance, the same tone as the fog, I could…

As usual, I was visiting my local deer park at the Woburn Abbey estate. Britain has several fantastic deer parks up and down the country, so my advice is to get to know your local park. Each has pros and cons, but the biggest factor is you and…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography A couple of weeks ago, I finally made the time to get out to the woods on a misty morning. We have a few pockets of woodland around Bedfordshire that are stocked with tall pines, which can be hugely photogenic in the right light. I’d wanted to photograph a Bedfordshire woodland in fog for quite a while, but it was never convenient to go when fog was forecast. On this occasion, I was able…
