Photo of the Week

Foulshaw Moss near Witherslack in Cumbria was extensively drained and dried out in the 1950s and 60s. Local conservation groups have recently removed the drainage and allowed the wetland to recover. This process of restoration produces a wild area in flux and one that combines decay with great beauty. Lowland raised mires like this are one of Western Europe’s rarest and most threatened habitats. Water-loving sphagnum mosses, carnivorous sundews, cranberry and bog rosemary are just some of the plants that thrive here along with snipe, water rail, sparrowhawk and recently, a pair of osprey.

About Mike Prince

Mike Prince is a Landscape Photographer living on the edge of the Lake District National Park.

He has been making photographs on a full time basis since 2015 and for many years before that part time. Having started with film and traditional silver gelatin darkroom processes, all images are now produced digitally. Mike’s main sources of inspiration are the Lakeland Fells, The West of Scotland and the Hebrides.

Blue skies and sunshine do not feature heavily among the portfolio. Mike is much more likely to be about and about when the weather is poor or just turning. After many years walking the fells and in Mountain Rescue, his tripod is often to be found set up on a Lakeland summit or by a lonely waterfall. Most of the images are taken at margins; the beginning of the day, the edge of water or the approach of a storm.

In addition to making photographs Mike also provides 1:1 workshops in the Lakes and beyond. Prints and further information is available from his website.
