My Photography is Not a Priority

Burnt Out?

I love creating videos for my YouTube channel.  I was already passionate about landscape photography and creating videos about my time out with the camera was a natural extension of my desire to share my photography.

However, there is no doubt it is a lot of hard work.  Sometimes my ideas are a bit grand and a little over adventurous.  These ideas sometimes pay off, but I normally have to put in a lot of extra effort.  It was after one of those "go the extra mile" videos that I decided I need a little rest.

Landscape Photography Not a Priority

I wasn't burnt out.  I just needed a rest.  I had spent the previous day driving all over the country taking photographs, but I still had the following day free.  I wanted to use that spare day to create another full-on landscape photography video, but I decided that I would benefit more from not making photography a priority.

So I headed out for a walk up Conic Hill near Loch Lomond on a beautiful summers day.  I still took my camera, but it wasn't my goal to even get it out of the bag.  Relaxing from the photography got me thinking and I decided to share my results in this video:

So just a short video.  A bit of a brain dump and a chance to try my hand at some cinematic style video.  I hope you liked it.  Did the message resonate with you?  Let me know in the comments below.

As I said in the video, I did take one image and here it is:
