The Messenger is a fantasy composite featuring the stunning Eilean Donan Castle. I shot the backdrop (castle) image during a recent trip to Skye. The bird, as with most of my artworks has been placed afterwards in Photoshop using my own stock. I like to create stories with my images and turn them into something more than a traditional landscape shot.

For those wondering where the red kite was photographed – there’s a place just north of Inverness where they (and various other wild birds that tag along) are fed. It takes some patience, but it’s worth the wait. You’ll need a decent telephoto lens to catch them though!

This image will be on display at my Gallery Exhibition in September and also during Perthshire Open Studios.
