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.
I know, I know, another lone tree! But look how dainty and awesome it is, growing our of the steeply sloped rocky outcrop. I love how something so strong can emerge and thrive in a rugged terrain. I'm always amazed at the resilience of trees - they'll try to grow anywhere, and somehow seem to [...]
Something about this small scene caught my eye as I walked past it the other day. I can't tell if it's the natural colour contrast, or the way the ferns sweep into the scene. Or maybe it's just my love for purple things... Shot handheld with the Sony a7ii and 100-400mm lens. Normally I'd [...]
I love scenes like this, shot on a hike in the Dunkeld area recently. The heather has made the landscape such a lovely colour, despite the intense heatwave a few weeks ago. I'm glad it has survived. I've seen other photographers' images of their local heather looking devastated by the dry conditions. Thankfully we're getting [...]
I'm going to start sharing more photographs from my adventures around Scotland with you all. My absolute favourite thing to do is vanish into the wilderness with my camera. It could be somewhere super remote, or even just local patches of woodland. I see so many beautiful things in a variety of settings and it [...]
