Watching ripple waves in Stromness, Orkney

Watching ripple waves in Stromness

Here’s the 8th of the series of instavideos featuring the participants, in ‘Behind the Photographer’ on the #quietlandscapes photography retreat with @margaretsoraya and @discover_still in Orkney. The photo featured here was taken by Jannette Beveridge @janettebeveridge in Stromness.

Everyone in the group got to do their own thing one afternoon and I love that we both noticed and shot the ripples in the water at Stromness. ⁠ ⁠

I could sit and watch these waves for hours. They’re so soft and calm looking but you can still see and sense the powerful energy of the water. They keep going, and you can see waves spreading out wider and wider and getting stronger.⁠ ⁠

I hope that wherever you are in this lockdown, that you get a chance and time to try or start you’ve always wanted to do, and that it ripples out in waves in a good way for positive changes in life down the line.⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Orkney is such an amazing place, and full of inspiration for photographers and artists. Check out Margaret’s website, ‘Quiet Landscapes’ if you’re interested in exploring your creativity with her. Something to look forward to when we get through the other side of this virus.⁠ ⁠

If you’re thinking that you need some video or editing, please do get in touch. I don’t just do travel filming; I also enjoy helping others get their talents recognised, and showcasing who they are and what they do. ⁠Maybe you have footage you’d like to do something with, and I can help edit it for you.⁠ ⁠

Margaret Soraya and Paul Sanders from Quiet Landscapes work really hard to create the perfect safe and nurturing environment for people to take stock and reflect on what direction they want to take their creativity in.⁠ ⁠
