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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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. [...]
When looking through my photo library to see which photos I should edit to share with you today, this one caught my eye. I think it's because I'm very much looking forward to autumn and winter. Summer is lovely, but I am a big fan of the cooler days, fewer midges, and quieter countryside. Autumn [...]
Please excuse the terrible title, but hey, I've got to use that at least once! Another simple shot of a beautiful swan swimming in a small loch near Dunkeld. The water of the loch was so calm, and because the surrounding was forested, the water surface looked a beautiful green colour. A very simple edit [...]
I think this is my favourite of the 8 shots I've processed from my hike around Dunkeld. Part way through my hike the path led me through a large field of sheep which was very hilly and covered in ferns and heather. I gave the sheep plenty of time to wander off before I proceeded [...]
I thought a good name for this little sheep is Dotty. Its legs are so spotty and cute. It almost looks like it's wearing knee-pads on the front. Sharing this image purely because I liked its cute legs. They made me smile. Taken with the sony a7ii and 100-400mm in the land north of Dunkeld.
I was quite envious of this swan, casually floating around in the serene small loch. The water looked really cool and I was rather toasty as this was about 12km into my hike for the day. Just a simple quick shot to capture the moment. Shot with the Sony A7ii and 100-400mm lens.
