Embo Beach near Dornoch

So back to reality, Honeymoon over back to the day job, gorgeous traditional fisherman’s cottage with a modern twist – and after that hardship I had to struggle around this mundane coastline seeking some appealing location shots – simply cant think why Madonna and Guy Ritchie choose to get married near here. :-)

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

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 having a lot of fun trying lots of different things currently - moreover I have been trying hard to mix up my posts to hold your attention. But I cannot denty that I was rather flattered by a recent comment which said and I quote "your trade mark wide open space". well to be honest that simply got the creative juices flowing and headed off to find some hardcore Open Space" - enjoy

I hope you are wandering across the vista seeking this haunted Castle which I am referring to. I stayed here when I was 15 on a tour of the Highlands which was run by my school. This and a subsequent trip to Minnesota have in many ways led me to the person I am. I have ghost story to tell with this picture - but you wouldn't believe me and it would take to long. So please just enjoy this and if you get the chance to go and stay (it is Scottish Youth Hostel Association venue)   don't think twice.

I hope your eyes are wandering across the vista seeking the haunted Castle which I am referring to. I stayed here when I was 15 on a tour of the Highlands which was run by my school. This and a subsequent trip to Minnesota have in many shaped the creative side of me. I have ghost story to tell with this picture – but you wouldn’t believe me and it would take to long. So please just enjoy this and if you get the chance to go and stay (it is Scottish Youth Hostel Association venue) don’t think twice.

This is ashot I took along time back which compositionally I was happy with but the upper part of the Sky was alittle blown so I thought I would mess around with some infrared & mono interpretations. Anyway the long and the short of it is I rather like this and may well try some more IR shots. Enjoy
