When you think of beautiful places around Devon, do you think of Barnstaple? Ive always lived in Barnstaple, but in the short period of time that Ive been alive Ive never observed its true beauty, said Tristan Clarkson. To prove his point, photographer Tristan has submitted a series of photos to our iwitness24 website. He said: We spend so much time looking down and it wasnt until I looked up from my phone and opened my eyes and walked around the town that I noticed. Ive always loved photography and times like these made me wonder why I never took it up. To be able to capture the beautiful scenery and help others feel the same about my home as I do is an incredible feeling. In late 2017 after finishing college, Tristan bought a camera, lenses and all the equipment he needed and took to the streets of Barnstaple. Like a tourist, I would walk around snapping pictures of everything, he said. During my times wondering around the town I have captured some beautiful photos, which I love to share with others. Were so fortunate to live in North Devon, one of the most amazing countys with the most incredible landscapes. I hope to travel around North Devon in the coming months and capture some more of the incredible views that Devon has to offer.
