One of the ‘easy wins’ in photography is to vary the shooting height of the camera by either getting higher… or, as in this case, lower.

The large-screen camera phones have made this easy to do, since once you have placed the device on or close to the ground – often thanking your last Pilates class – it’s still possible to see the shot framed in the screen.

A final trick is to tun the phone upside down, bringing the lens close to the … mud, in this case. Normally, this corrects itself when you look at the image, but if not you can easily rotate the photo using the device’s inbuilt tools.

  1. Great image, Steve. Mobile phones have come on such a long way for photography, plus it’s always the eye – your eye in this case – that sees. And well done to Morecambe for that Eden Project funding!

      • I hope they’re able to start work soon. I read the one in Cornwall took only a few years before the first phase opened to visitors. I’m already looking forward to it. And if you live locally, you also have the pleasure of watching it take shape.
