Todays photo is of the stunning Glamis Castle – a place which needs little introduction! My favourite thing about this image is the snow on the hills behind. I can’t wait for winter to return and sugar-coat the hills again!
Somewhere in the woods beneath the tower of Kinnoull Hill is a cave known as The Dragon Hole. Local legend tells of it being home to, obviously, a dragon, but that it also used to be a hiding spot for William Wallace and the site of pagan rituals. These days the cave is apparently quite… Read More The Folly On The Hill
Today’s photograph is of a magnificent wild stag in the Scottish Highlands during a chilly winter morning last December. Photographed with the Sony A7ii and the 100-400mm lens (at 114mm, f7.1, 1/100sec).
This photo has been my wallpaper on my phone since I first edited it. I can’t remember if I ever shared it at the time, but it never made it onto my portfolio due to focussing purely on my fine art works. It’s nice to be able to finally share this beauty of a fox… Read More A Portrait Of A Fox
This photo of a lovely little blackbird was taken a couple of months ago in parkland near Loch Ness. I was visiting the area as a friend had commissioned me to create 3 photographs to illustrate their short story. During my walk, I took a bit of a detour through some woodland and when I… Read More A Spring Blackbird
A friend once told me that when robins stare at you, they’re not watching you out of interest, more sizing you up to see if they could beat you in a territorial fight. That’s pretty badass. I’m not sure if it’s true, but I like to think these cute little critters are actually _very_ kickass… Read More Cooler Days
Did you know there are estimated to be only 300 wildcats left in the wild in Scotland? Thankfully, conservation groups and animal welfare charities are helping this beautiful endangered species. Earlier this year, some adorable wildcat kittens were born at the RZSS Highland Wildlife Park. They’ve had an amazing year for newborns, having welcomed Hamish… Read More The Scottish Wildcat
I love photographing animals. I generally photograph a mix of wildlife, pets/farm animals and those at refuges and wildlife centres. This lovely little fox is at the Scottish Deer Centre in Fife. I have a kinda ruleset for where I’ll visit to see animals: if the organisation does good work, I’ll support them – usually… Read More A Fox In Autumn
About Loch Con Loch Con is a small body of water that lies in the hills to the west of Blair Atholl in Perthshire. At its edge is a small boat house which seems to now be a bothy. The walk to the loch is via moorland which has a variety of wildlife and views… Read More Loch Con, Perthshire
Today’s image is of the well-known Kinnoull Hill tower here in Perth. While my favourite places to be with my camera are out in the wilderness, I make sure to try and have my camera with me if I pop into town because you never know what you’ll see, or what light you’ll get.… Read More Letting Go Of Perfection
