In this portfolio you will find Emma's evocative Images of Holy Island also known as Lindisfarne.
Holy Island is one of Britain's places of outstanding natural beauty. The captivating little tidal island is situated just off the North East Coast in Northumberland and can be accessed by a Causeway road twice a day at low tide.
Emma has been photographing Holy Island since the Spring of 2002. She calls this body of creative work, 'Holy Island, My journey of light'. After falling in love with the islands astounding light and inspirational ever changing views due to the island's unique tidal system. Emma made the life changing decision to relocate to the Island in the Summer of 2009 which enabled her to have a closer relationship with the landscape she loves.
Emma says: "For me it has been a journey like no other, to be able to actively photograph this magical little place for a decade and a half. Hopefully these images will one day help form part of the islands history for the generations to come. Here time stands still. I have never experienced light like this, it is completely compelling, a true paradise of ever-changing scenery, combine this with an array of majestic light and mind blowing dynamic skies. The perfect ingredients for landscape photography"
Emma knew from her very first visit there was no place like this. 'It's just the feeling of the place, it has it's own sense of spirituality and calm."
Emma runs photography workshops on Holy Island, please see the workshop section of this site for further information.
'Holy Island is simply inspirational, it is a true theatre of light. A magnificent vista for aspiring photographers to come and join me and learn in this awe inspiring landscape. Once you have photographed and experienced the true magic of Holy Island, it will change your photography and life forever. There really is no place like here, it is unique because of it's tidal system. The landscape is continually changing, hour by hour, day by day, it is never the same."

Light is an especially instrumental part of landscape photography. The blue hour can be one of the most captivating times of day. With the transition of time between night and day, day and night. My favourite name for these periods of time is first and last light and it is when cooler blue tones are falling on the scene in landscape photography. Missing the blue hour is not something you should do if you are serious about learning landscape photography.

Here is a selection of images I made during, "Storm Emma" and "The Beast from the East" which raged in on Monday evening the 26th February 2018.
It was an eerie six days and once the weather had calmed enough to venture outside, I hoped to photograph the landscape as it felt to me during that period of time.
"As if I had stepped inside a story book and taken presence in another world."
I hope you enjoy my image sequence titled, "The Calm after Storm" through a landscape photographers eyes, Holy Island. I hope these images adequately reflect some of the drama that was present over this incredibly extraordinary period.
Emma's Story, from those unique six days:
Late evening, Monday the 26th February was when we were first hit with the "Beast from the East" on Holy Island. It was indeed a storm of mass proportions that raged on for days.
By Tuesday lunchtime we could barely see out of our house windows as everywhere was covered in the lashing snow and ice particles from the storm. Upon daring to step outside for inspection, I made a small trip through the deserted village, only to find I couldn't even make it any further due to the high winds and hurling snow. The front of my cottage now resembled something out of the film, the day after tomorrow. I often wonder why human beings are so curious, when it would make much more sense to stay inside, but no we have to inspect.
Wednesday night came and was joined by storm Emma, the true velocity of what was occurring hit, mother nature was on rampage through our village streets, blocking us in and those who did venture out were hit with grave conditions. Even collecting coal for the fire from the back gardens was a challenge.
I quickly realised as the skies fell into heavy grey & foreboding hues, the snow continuing to swirl and spin on our little island nestled in the north sea, that it was going to be difficult to photograph. I decided to wait until conditions calmed. I had no other option.
On Saturday the 3rd March 2018, after realising we had all been completely blocked off from the mainland since Tuesday the 27th February. The causeway covered in sea and ice bergs, with the ebb and flow of the in and out going tide. Beal Lonnen our only route to the A1 from the causeway, covered in 10 foot high snow drifts, blocking the country road, our only exit by land. The A1 was closed for the best part of three days from Alnwick to Berwick which is quite a lengthy stretch of road.
I put on my winter kit and properly ventured out for the first time with my camera since both storms had hit, dodging the still ever present snow flurries and exploring the island. This wasn't the happy snow and amazing light I had witnessed during the heavy snow falls of 2010. This was something different, unique, eerie in it's presence, a powerful feeling fell, mother nature had been playing out one of the most dramatic performances I had ever seen.
