Nottinghamshire The Forgotten County

08th May 2010
As a photographer I travel to some super places around the country to take pictures, however, I suspect like a lot of people I have a great affection for the county I was born and bred in, and where I have lived all my life. For me that County is Nottinghamshire.

My landscape images have never really lived up to my expectations and one of my plans this year is to try and improve this area of my photography. To try and get an idea of the images that others are producing (the competition) I had a trawl on the net. The results of this have lead me to the following conclusion.

"There are no photographic locations in Nottinghamshire or there are no photographers capturing stunning images of Nottinghamshire"

Perhaps its flawed research but if you look at Derbyshire there are some fantastic images out there. The same goes for Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. I understand that terrain wise Derbyshire and Yorkshire have more dramatic landscape and Lincolnshire borders the sea but surely Nottinghamshire can do better?

This leads me to my idea. For me its liable to be doubly difficult. Firstly I'm never happy with the standard of my Landscape images, and secondly are their the locations to even give me a chance of really showcasing the County?

If any of my regulars or casual browsers on this site have ideas for locations within Nottinghamshire that can give me a helping hand, please drop me an email with your suggestions on this page or the email link from this site.

Anyway, hopefully I can provide some images that really do show that Nottinghamshire has a lot to offer the photographer. If it goes well I may devote it a special gallery on the site!

Watch out for more Badger images coming soon too!
