I’ve started using Adobe’s Behance since it comes with the subscription. You can create projects, so a way to collate related photographs and explore ideas. My new project is called “Forestry, Woodlands and Trees“, and it is concerned with the impact on the land, visually as well as environmentally, of how trees are planted and used. I see lots of great trees that I photograph individually or in groups, so that can give an appreciation of what is actually happening on the ground. When you move back, you get a more graphic view of how the landscape is being used.
My concern ultimately is to focus on the sustainability of this activity, in the context that creatures (land and air and water, animals and birds and fish, insects) are dependent for their survival on their environment, that if we are to address concerns regarding endangered species then first we need to ensure the (endangered) environment on which they depend is maintained (or renovated, boosted joined), and not just locally, but to a sufficient extent to recognize how far they need to roam to have access to food.
The initial set of photographs are all from my travels around Scotland in 2017.
