Yesterday I went for a wander in the local woods with my macro lens to hunt for fungi. I found loads! I’ll be writing up a blog post about them soon, but in the mean time, here’s an unexpected gem. I’ve called it “Ferns and Daydreams”. I’m actually kinda tempted to print this one! If… Read More Ferns and Daydreams
Today’s photo is of a rather magical snowy hike around the woodland and hills near Kingussie. We had SO much snow that day! I was wearing my winter mountaineering boots and full waterproofs. The snow came up to my knees in places! A very hard work hike, but worth it for the incredible views. … Read More A Magic Winter
It’s been quite a long time since I visited Syke. It’s always so beautiful in summer, with the heather and lush green landscape. However summer also brings two things I’m not so fond of: midges, and huge crowds of tourists. There’s been quite a lot of talk about how the crowds are affecting Skye. I’m… Read More Summer on Syke
I just learned that today is National Wildlife Day! Which means today’s photo had to be of something adorable from the Scottish Highlands. I encountered a few of these beautiful tiny rabbits at the edge of a small woodland near Loch Ness a few months ago. I spent a good hour with them (and the… Read More Spring Rabbit
Dunnottar Castle on a chilly December day. Since it’s Open Studios this week, I can’t go out taking new photos, which means I’m digging through the murky depths of my Lightroom catalog for old favourites to re-edit and share with you! Amidst the dust and cobwebs there are a few gems! I took… Read More Dunnottar Castle In December
Today’s image is one I shot a few years ago, near the Moray Coast of Scotland. I recently went back to this spot to see what the scene was like and the little cabin has since given-way quite a lot. Also, since it was summer, the scene was incredibly lush and green. I definitely preferred… Read More The Cabin Of Loch Oire

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).
