As the days begin to shorten and the temperature drops, many of us could be forgiven for wanting to spend more time indoors and wrapped up in front of the fire. Well, not me.

This time of year provides an amazing opportunity to capture some of the landscapes which make Britain’s countryside one of the best in the world and give you the chance to capture that perfect postcard image.

You just have to be prepared to get up early and wear some thermal underwear!

Lancashire and the surrounding counties offer such a wide variety of panoramas to the landscape photographer and over the next few months I will be sharing a few of my favourite places to visit and (try to) capture that perfect image.

First up on my list is Forestry Commission site of Stocks Reservoir, located alongside Gisburn Forest in East Lancashire.

A regular destination for mountain bikers and twitchers alike, this woodland area holds a bounty of potential subjects.

Most landscape photography is dictated by your quality of light and in order to get that crisp morning feel to the image, I had to be there before sunrise to capture that early morning glow.
