December 2018 Battle, East Sussex, UK
The British village of Battle, is situated 80km south-east of London. Battle is the site of the Battle of Hastings, where William, Duke of Normandy, defeated King Harold II to become William I in 1066. Here Michelle took a photo that has nothing to do with the historic battle, but is a contemporary scene of a leaf on a leather glove. Yes it’s random, but that’s the great thing about photography, unplanned events can offer wonderful compositions.
December 2018 Andalucia, Spain
In Andalucian villages at this time of year, the orange trees are laden with fruit, and always make for interesting photographic scenes.
New Year thoughts
As the year draws to a close, we reflect on the places where we’ve travelled during the year, and the new photography assignments on the horizon in 2019.
During 2018, Michelle and her Hotel Essence photography team have worked in locations across Europe, America and Africa.
