Derwent BluesAbout this photograph
"The sun sets at nightfall on the banks of Derwent Water in the Lake District." Adam Burton favours the undulating colours of sunset, when the natural light diffuses a rare and unique atmospheric glow. While he now works mainly in digital, he started out in analogue, which spurs the photographer's ongoing desire to bring out the best in nature itself, without adding more. Equipped with Nikon cameras and many different lenses, he is thus able to capture what he calls "magic moments", landscapes with great authenticity that do not require digital touch-ups after capture.

Considered one of the foremost photographers of the British landscape, Adam Burton has travelled across the globe to capture natural environments on a large scale. A self-taught photographer, he started learning the relevant techniques in 2001, mainly by reading specialist magazines and practising in situ, in the New Forest or along the coast of Dorset. This informal training enabled him to develop an instantly recognisable and unique style and signature that is now well known. Since 2004, his photographs have been published in newspapers and have graced the covers of more than 200 magazines. He has practised photography full time since 2008, publishing a number of books on his work, that in recent years have focused on the southwest of England, his native country. The artist was awarded numerous prizes, notably the prestigious annual â€œInternational Garden Photographerâ€ competition in 2013.
