Puffy the Cloud

So what have we here? Some sand dunes - a bit of light n shade and a little puffy cloud - I wanted to post something bright and cheerful - equally I wanted to post something which wouldn't be seen as one of my safe standard shots

This is from a wee walk on the West Beach the other evening, the longer evenings have been great but I have been unable to grab the opportunities with a multitude of personal inputs. I have a horrible feeling my last year in the RAF is going to be like this. Where I hope to ease in to my new career but the reality wont allow me to go quietly. This typical Moray lots going on - texture and light changes, reflections etc etc - I hope you enjoy. Your continued support is appreciated and highly motivational - Scott

I long for Spring

The classic Scottish Golf tease it could be Turnberry to the uninitiated it is in fact a small 9 hole course called Covesea after the lighthouse in the early Spring not that long now the yellow sea of gorse comes alive and we know we are emerging from winters grip.

The classic Scottish Golf tease it could be Turnberry to the uninitiated it is in fact a small 9 hole golf course called Covesea after the lighthouse of the same name. In the early Spring (not that long now) the yellow sea of gorse comes alive and we know we are emerging from winters grip.

Here we are in the depths of winter and I realised I have not generated a good old fashioned sunset since mid November - now there is a reason for that of course (I am working when the light departs) but I was down the beach last weekend when this happened and I thought you may like this little chase of light......

Arc of a Diver

This is probably the image that made me take photography more seriously - for along time I regarded it as my best shot - the last time I rolled this out was May last year and it recived a mere 8 likes (I was dissapointed but was not  long in to blogging so no real surprises. Anyway this shot is a wet film rescan and is now 25 years old - so here is my question has it stood the test of time? Secondly do you think it reflects my style as you have come to know it? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Burghead – Pinky Blue Hue

I have posted over 500 images here on WordPress most are dynamic wild Scotland with some fantastic light. This image however is probably at the other end of the spectrum - an underwhelming subtle hue of pink and blue on an abnormally calm summer's evening. Take time to look at the subtle hue and reflections within this almost Turner like effect.

Bàgh Shanabhait – Wet n Wild

Sandwood Bay (Scottish Gaelic: Bàgh Shanabhait) is a natural bay in Sutherland, on the far north-west coast of mainland Scotland. It is best known for its mile-long beach and Am Buachaille, a sea stack, and lies about 5 miles south of Cape Wrath. Behind the bay’s large dunes, stretches Sandwood Loch – a freshwater loch full of brown and sea trout.
Though remote, and with no road access, the bay is easily reached by a 4-mile long, yet well-trodden and fairly flat, path leading from the gravel car park at the hamlet of Blairmore. Sandwood Bay is part of the Sandwood Estate which is run by the John Muir Trust. The beach is considered to be one of the cleanest and most unspoilt beaches in the whole of mainland Britain.

Taking in the view – Oldshoremore

Well as you tolerated my Glaswegian Social Commentary, I thought I may continue to indulge some people photography – here are three ladies soaking up the view in beautiful light at Oldshoremore, Sutherland. The view which they are not sharing with you is wild and magnificent. First and foremost I loved the light,  but I clocked the other person dissapearing (hands on hips) in to the distance and the wonderful white house isolated by the dark sky. I immediately thought they had been socially excluded from the bench threw a temper tantrum and walked off in a huff.

Blue for You

This is an archive repost from the “Burghead Sunset Sessions” a seminal week in November 2011 where I witnessed several wonderful sunsets in the same week.

My most successful Instagram’s and why are you not following me :D

These are small snapshots of my most successful Instagram Images – I thought it might be interesting to share, couple of points to note – it is mainly my landscape work but not exclusively which is popular, wildlife on the whole struggles and people crash n burn – moody coastal scenes work every time but then I understand that. Anyway if you want to follow me on Instagram or Twitter just search @skm1963 – I find it fun and relaxing :D

Dune Burst

I love capturing the light pre-sunrise especially when there is high clouds to catch the light, here the sun has actually risen above the horizon but I have rapidly withdrawn to use the dunes as filter, I hope you like the result as much as me.

late autumn sun almost at the death lays artificial warm tones on the rocky eroded coastline of Moray – what you cant sense is how bitterly cold it is as the wind chill bites at me.

I suppose this type of image is starting to define my style – large open spaces mottled by a variety of light. I do love those aftersun shots – for me more interesting than the big warm ball – thoughts
