Linda of the day #4

Today, day four of my daily series looking at Linda McCartney photographs, I have chosen photos depicting landscapes and nature and illustrating her interest in using different photographic techniques.

Linda was a keen horse rider and loved animals and getting herself lost in nature.  This beautiful photo was taken in Sussex

In the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, Linda experimented with various photographic techniques and printing methods, such as photogravure , silver-bromide prints and Polaroid transfers.

Linda also used sun printing, as in this image
