Well I have only managed 4 posts this month - in the past that would have phased me. I have been focussing on sorting out our home and carpeting has been the task of the moment. My thinking is if I can get our house how I want it then that will fre  my mind to be creative and get out and about. Meanwhile I continue to shoot property for a posh estate agent and I am enjoying that immensely much more than I thought II would. Anyway thank you for sticking with my sporadic appearances - as always - enjoy

Well I have only managed 4 posts this month – in the past that would have phased me. I have been focusing on sorting out our home and carpeting has been the task of the moment. My thinking is if I can get our house how I want it, then that will free my mind to be creative and get out and about. Meanwhile I continue to shoot property for a posh estate agent and I am enjoying that immensely, much more than I thought I would.

This is the second from my last trip out to Torridon - although rather than focusing on Beinn Alligin the view looks towards Torridon across the Loch Beag then Loch Sheildaig and finally just before the mountain range you see Upper Loch Torridon, it is quiet rare to see this view on such a clear day - enjoy

Hopeman Panorama

A glorious day today on the Moray Coast, the shot I was composing was simply not going to happen with a standard 24mm lens – so I decided to take a panorama of 5 images – Hopeman beach is more than just the coloured huts it is a rock-pool extravaganza with the tidal pools flushed twice daily it is a lovely clean beach with great dunes and protected by wonderful yellow gorse.

The blog has also passed a couple of barriers recently with 80,000 views and 800 followers onwards towards 100K :-). I value all your support and encouragement and in return I love seeing your images too. Moreover I get to steal your ideas and destinations (at least in my dreams). Thanks for watching Scott

This a haunt from my childhood - I was doing seeing my parents an we had a wee run down the Ayreshire coast. Dunure and Turnberry were my too stops. A right blast from the past. Anyway I climbed out at great risk on to these rocks to get this rather dramatic angle and the sun graced me with it's presence - enjoy

This is an unpublished sequence of 4 images all taken during the same day at Loch Duich – it was a pretty miserable day but an ethereal moody feel was generated  by the low cloud and perfectly calm water offering some lovely reflections. I did publish another 2 shots from this day Crash Landed a Hunter’s Moon and the Five Sisters of Kintail  (both collecting a good few views). I have decided on reflection when you add these four unpublished images it may well have been one of my most productive days photography on the basis I hope for one good shot a day. Anyway I will let you decide – enjoy

I thought I would offer a compare and contrast of the same view from different locations - The first image was taken a few weeks ago and the second back in 2010 when I first moved to the Highlands. I pass this view every time I head out to Inverpolly - I usually stop and in fat I intend to stop on each occasion and see how many variations I get.

I love the natural leading lines of Ardmair Bay lots of light textures, cloud shadows and of course the thin layer of cloud perched on the top of Coigach.

 

Beinn Mor Coigach

This was taken back in 2010, I didn’t know the area at all, this is down on the beach at Ardmair, with the lines drawing you towards Coigach – I liked the wet and dry stones separated by the seaweed line, whipping you round to the mountain topped by a dusting of snow.

A favourite place of mine to catch a sunset - simple colours and shapes produce an inner calm - whilst sunsets may be out of fashion I for one cannot resist ~ enjoy
