When digital cameras came on the scene she embraced the new technology, sold her darkroom equipment of 30 years standing and started printing her pictures with Photoshop. But in spite of her obvious mastery of the medium, she said:
"I don't get wrapped up in technique and the like. I have a simple rule and that is to spend as much time in the location as possible. You can't expect to take a definitive image in half an hour. It takes days, often years. And in fact I don't believe there is such a thing as a definitive picture of something. The land is a living, breathing thing and light changes its character every second of every day. That's why I love it so much."
