The British Weather

I have a photographer friend living in California who is always moaning about the weather. 'What?' I hear you shout, I don't believe that for a second. It's true, though. Where he's based half the year is hot and dry and the other half is warm and wet; no variation, two seasons that's it, and that's boring for landscape photography, same light day in and day out.

That's why I love the British weather because we actually have some and it is most definitely not boring. Even if you consult the latest forecast you're still not sure what you're going to get. I mean look at our current Summer, cold, warm, cool, hot, overcast, showers, persistent rain, thunderstorms etc., etc., you name it, we've had it and are most likely to get more of it, and I haven't even mentioned Autumn, Winter and Spring yet. Great landscape photography opportunities abound in this country because the light is varying constantly and, as photography is all about the light, we British landscapers have it relatively easy in our choice of how to record a particular location. So don't moan about it, use it.

'Hi, Pat. What's the weather like over there today?'
