“VISIONS of the Landscape”

Landscape photography from all over the UK will be exhibited and displayed in the Orchard Centre, Taunton between August 1 and August13 by local professional landscape photographer Don Bishop.

Based at his gallery at the Willows & Wetlands Visitor Centre, Stoke St Gregory Don has travelled all over the UK, often covering many miles out and back in a day, making images of memorable landscape locations with a mind to capturing these in wonderful lighting conditions.

Much time is spent planning locations and working out the best light angles for the time of day and year of his visits, and frequently spending a long time on location waiting for the right light – if not deciding to return on another day/time of year.

It is Don’s passion for warm colourful lighting that drives him to get up early and travel many miles to achieve the stunning images.

It is held at Don Bishop Photography, Orchard Shopping Centre, Paul Street, Taunton (open 8.30am - 5.30pm) Prints available from £23.99 to £249.00
