Ferns and Daydreams

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 Read more…

A Magic Winter

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 Read more…

Summer on Syke

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 Read more…

Spring Rabbit

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 Read more…

Dunnottar Castle In December

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 Read more…

The Cabin Of Loch Oire

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 Read more…

The Folly On The Hill

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 Read more…

A Portrait Of A Fox

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 Read more…

A Spring Blackbird

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 Read more…

Cooler Days

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 Read more…

The Scottish Wildcat

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 Read more…

A Fox In Autumn

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, Read more…

Loch Con

Loch Con is a small body of water that lies in the hills to the west of Blair Atholl in Perthshire. Legend has it that at some point in history, a freebooter (criminal, robber type) made a home here for himself and his wife. Now, rather than the lovely cosy Read more…

Letting Go Of Perfection

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, Read more…

Changing Seasons

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 Read more…

Swan Loch

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 Read more…

The Lookout

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 Read more…
