Friday Photowalk

I try to take a daily walk (or two) and while walking I usually listen to podcasts or audiobooks. One of my favorite podcasts is The Daily Photography Podcast – I highly recommend it if you’re into photography – and every friday there is the “Friday Photowalk” episode where Neale James do a photowalk while reading/answering listeners emails.

I have of course heard about photowalks before but I have never attended one – living where I live partly explains it – but I thought a single person photowalk would work. So I decided to try it this morning while actually listening to todays episode. So here are some photos from today:

  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous photos – I love the vibrant colours and contrasts. Were these taken with a DSLR or a mobile phone?

  2. What incredible pictures and I’m honoured for your mention! Now here’s a walk I’d love to do in person one day when the world starts behaving itself again.

    Kindest, Neale

  3. Hi Jem,

    I heard about your photowalk on Neale’s podcast – lovely images! I have a similarish walk that I do here in the Highlands of Scotland. Here, your ‘puddle’ would be called a lochan (a smaller version of a loch) and your ‘mire’ looks like a boggy moor 🙂


    • Wow, it tool me a long time to answer your comment, in Swedish I would call this a “tjärn” (small lake) and “myr”. I’ve always wondered what a moor is, I kind of understand but I think I need to experience one to see if we have something similar in Sweden.

      And I’m really impressed with your photos, they are really, really nice. I especially like … all of them. I have to ask: is that a goat skull in the stove??

      • Haha…no problem, life is busy!

        We also use the word tarn for a small lake up in the mountains, but that tends to get used in England rather than Scotland.

        Thank you for your kind comments regarding my images and your added comment about the Mongolian portraits…it was a very special trip.

        The skull was a sheep – skeletally almost identical to a goat 🙂

      • And suddenly I start to wonder if there is some kind of connection between “tarn” and “tjärn” or if it just accidental
