This image can be purchased in an number of mediums from this link

 I am proud to announce a first on my blog – this is an aerial shot of one of Scotland’s most stunning ruins Castle Tioram – Loch Moidart, Lochaber. I shan’t bother you with the technical aspects or hows and whys – I just hope you agree that it offers a completely different perspective.

65002 Returning Home

 

62005 Returning Home can be bought at this link

This is 62005 returning to Fort William – crossing the swing bridge at Neptune’s Staircase on the best day I have ever witnessed in Lochaber. Ben Nevis in the background is devoid of snow with the North Face cast in shadow. I have several shots of 62005 resplendent in late evening sun so keep watching also some crackers from Loch Moidart – enjoy

Scurdie Ness Lighthouse

 Purchase this Lighthouse here

This is the second in my Lighthouse series (Summer) – this is Scurdie Ness at Ferryden near Montrose. Scurdie Ness was one of the first I saw as a child due to the fact we spent several holidays in Montrose at Caravan Parks – great memories of golden beaches, Fish and Chips and a tough wee Golf Course – where I also entered my first Jnr Golf Competition in the Montrose Open (nervous times). I do love returning to haunts from my childhood and exploring much further than I ever got th chance to do back then. Enjoy

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

A little bit of moody drama at Corpach – it was poor day so I applied artistic impression mode and some poetic licence – enjoy
