PERSONAL PHOTO PROJECT: MOUNTAIN HARES
By Tesni Ward
Things didn’t quite go as I’d hoped, and I was only able to grab a few fleeting glimpses of hares. I unexpectedly bumped into a couple of friends and from their reports, it seemed I wasn’t the only one struggling – the conditions had the hares spooked and skittish. But I didn’t let this put me off: how often does everything go perfectly to plan on day one?
I’ll definitely be returning to Scotland to photograph the Cairngorm hares again; working with a combination of individuals from different environments and habitats allows me to expand this ongoing project in an exciting and challenging way – but with the Peak District only an hour away from my home, this will always be where I focus the majority of my time.
