One of the hardships of shooting property for a living is the fact that you have to travel to photograph the properties. Unfortunately for me I had to head up towards Kyle of Tongue (Mandy and I even managed to turn it in to an overnighter - benefits of freelance) where I found this magical combination of a rustic abandonment and wrecked boat - throw in a dark sky and  light over my shoulder and voilà - enjoy

Busy Busy Busy - I have been trying to post for nearly 4 days but continuously get distracted - the last 3 evenings we were BBQing which means snoring on the sofa by 9pm :-) Anyway last week we went along to Elgin Cathedral (what a setting) to watch Macbeth - there was atotal of 5 actors covering all the parts - a very impressive line fluff free performance - quiet brilliant. However for me it was the setting and the ever changing light on the Cathedral which was attracting me. Annoyingly it was about 30 mins after I took this it got really good - but I decided I couldn't get out my seat again out of respect for the performers. - Enjoy

This is the famous Jacobite Steam Train on the Fort William to Mallaig Line (also known to some as the Hogwart's Express from the Harry Potter Movies). Although the weather wasn't the best I was set up to include the mini Lighthouse on the right and Ben Nevis in the background - definately a good recce shot for a better day (works quite well in mono but we shall keep that for another day) enjoy.

A rush post to make sure I have a least 3 in June – taking lots of shots just not the time to edit them. Something a wee bit different from me but – well worthy of a share – my son and daughter covered themselves in coloured powder for some fun and charity – the day  was perfect for photos and I had great fun deciding which ones to post. I hope that they convey the fun that everyone not just these guys had – a real good feeling and great photos to boot.

I thought I would just quickly share this before abandoning the PC and telephone conversations with HMRC to spend 4-5 hours in the Lossiemouth sun. This was taken last night with a .6 ND Grad filter . According to all the magazine articles it is a landscape photographers bread and butter requirement. It certainly kept the sky under check and reduced post processing time which must be good.  Anyway as I said sunshine here I come.

This is an unpublished sequence of 4 images all taken during the same day at Loch Duich – it was a pretty miserable day but an ethereal moody feel was generated  by the low cloud and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

This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite mountains and I have only seen it from about 8 miles out. That said I have seen it from every side and in most weather conditions. I do think framing it from the Loch with the small tree island places it in a truly grand setting. Oh by the way I did say mountain but technically it is only a Corbet but with such a dramatic shark fin shape and steep slopes it deserves real consideration - enjoy.

I am very proud of this shot which I took back in 2011, compositionally I took 4  subtly different shots of this boat and selected this shot (no cropping. I had the opportunity to take some shots in to the camera club and receive some critique from fellow members - all were complimentary on the composition and light but one person suggested the sky lacked sufficient contrast to compete with the lovely reflection. Well that was me off in to the archives to pull the RAW file and here we are. Now I think this pops whereas previously it was a nice shot - it is now on sale and getting growing interest - have a lovely week chaps.

This was very unusual from a weather point of view the sun was almost completely unimpeded by clouds – none of the traditional standing around with the shot set up waiting for the elusive light. The sun shone all day but it was blowing around 25 Kt. and damn cold but when you are rewarded with this quality of view quiet frankly I didn’t care. Normally I am happy with one shot from a trip like this but I am hopeful I may have 4 or 5 – keep watching

As I work through my back catalogue deciding what can used for stock and what can be added to my portfolio

as well as reviewing and removing substandard work. The process challenges me to review how I have edited

in the past particularly as my knowledge of the software grows. This is an image I don’t think I have published

previously – but I  re cropped loosing a large chunk from the bottom brought the exposure down by 1/2 stop

and reduced the vibrance. The result is for me is a more comfortable and natural image. I hope you agree :-)

This view is taken from Captain Bertram Dickson's Grave in the Cnoc na Bain Burial Ground. By all accounts he was a pioneer and almost certainly one of the forefathers of the formation of the RAF. It is a fitting and supremely tranquil location for such a pioneer to finish his days, whilst it is not perhaps at it's photogenic best - the view is none the less dramatic - enjoy

The magnificent Chapter House of Elgin Cathedral "The Lantern of the North" - boy what I would have paid to see this in it's day - certainly prior to the sacking by the "Wolf of Badenoch" in 1390 where it was not simply a Cathedral but entire community nestled behind a huge curtain wall. The Chapter House which you see in the middle of the shot is the only completely intact part of the Cathedral. I have some  shots of that room under editing. I had reccied this angle several weeks ago but the light was bland. Today spoiled us with some cracking late winter sunshine generating some fantastic shadows and offering real detail in the stonework. Anyway I am really pleased by the shot - I think it punches you with colour - enjoy

I cannot deny that whilst watching the story of the extreme weather unfold in many parts of the UK leading to, what is for many a horrible nightmare, I wish anyone suffering from the flooding and high winds that spring is on it's way. Fortunately we in Moray have been blessed by much kinder conditions. As i was selecting a blog post I realised that many of my recent images have reflected those milder conditions which we have been experiencing. Therefore - I decided to  attempt to reflect my feelings at this point of the year when the nights are drawing out and we all look forward to the clocks changing and areal sense that Spring is in the air - unfortunately this image simply says "cauld"

The Conon Hydro-Electric Power Scheme, which lies to the north of the Affric-Beauly Scheme, is centred on Strathconan and Strath Bran. The second stage of development focused on Conon Valley where dams were built at Loch Droma and in Strath Vaich to create high level reservoirs. Water descends to a power station at Loch Glascarnoch, a man-made reservoir with a substantial dam 28m (92 feet) high and 510m (1673 feet) long, and travels on to Mossford power station. It is then discharged into Loch Luichart, which drains the area around Achnasheen.

Whilst under construction Hydro electricity is not without it’s detractors however when the contract considers the environment as best it can and returns the land as close back to it’s original circumstance, then in my view it works. I accept it is not without cost to the environment but for me it is a preferred option  versus being held ransom by foreign corporations for energy. I will definitely spend more time around this loch – which is traditionally shot in the opposite direction to the very attractive backdrop of Torridon

Looking back over the year - I feel I have moved forward particularly my night photography and composition - I know that I have not been so prolific this year in fact there are many images I have not published because I just don't feel the are the standard I want. I have messed around with tonemapping - so I guess it has been more an experimental year. I have high hope photographically for 2014 I hope to be in wilder locations at just the right time of day for the most intriguing light I can lay my hands on. In the middle of the year I am planning to upgrade my kit (which will be exciting) - so I am hoping 2014 will be "Scott's year of creativity" stay with me it could be a fun ride....... slainte mhor

Rattray Point, is a headland in Buchan, Aberdeenshire, on the north-east coast of Scotland. The dunes at Rattray Head beach can be up to 75 feet (23 m) high and stretch 17 miles (27 km) from St Combs to Peterhead. The 120 feet (37 m) Lighthouse  was built in 1895 by the engineering brothers  Stevenson David Alan Stevenson and Charles Alexander Stevenson. In February 1982 it became unmanned and self-working.[2][3] The lighthouse is accessible by way of a causeway that is usually underwater being only visible at low tide. It is wide enough for a vehicle to cross. Remains of several shipwrecks can still be seen on the beach. (wikipedia)

I had it in my mind to post another Scottish Landscape but I have been working on my Lightroom skills and had come across the opposite view of an image which I shared recently Castel Sant’Elmo – this is the complete reverse of that shot – this time the gentleman is in the foreground – the image is a little noisy in and around his character due to the fact the original was blown quiet badly in the strong light (this simply didn’t work in my normal medium of colour) so I decided to dampen the highlights and use the classic wet film process Cyanotone – which wont work for everyone but for me allows me to share a rather interesting shot which tells a little more of the Castel Sant’Elmo shot – enjoy

First Light

According to records, the original light at Kinnaird Head was established on 1 December 1787. A lantern was set at a height of 120 feet above the sea on a corner of a tower of an old castle in Fraserburgh. Fixed lights only were shown at this stage, produced by arrays of lamps burning whale oil, each of them backed by its own parabolic reflector made up of a multitude of facets of silvered mirror-glass set on a plaster mould. Kinnaird Head was the most powerful light of its time, and contained 17 reflectors arranged in 3 horizontal tiers. In clear weather according to Murdoch Downie’s New Pilot of 1791, the light could be seen 12 or 14 miles off. Two ‘firsts’ for Kinnaird Head were (a) the first Lighthouse built in Scotland by the Commissioners of Northern Lights (founded in 1786) and (b) the first Radio Beacon in Scotland was introduced in 1929 at Kinnaird Head.

Well as we head towards the long dark nights of the Scottish Autumn - I thought this was an appropriate shot. Invergordon and Nigg Bay have serviced numerous Oil and Gas Rigs during the North Sea Oil boom years - which naturally followed by a decline however more recently with the renewable's market - the energy sector is generating work again so this image hopefully shows there is beauty in all things even industry and just perhaps we are slowly heading out of recession.
