Dusk light over Edinburgh with Arthurs Seat in the distance.
Coastal slippage on the Isle of Wight.
Arthurs Seat and Holyrood Palace from Calton Hill, at dusk.
Wintry dusk in Edinburgh, Inverleith.
Evening light on Skye; Loch Slapin and the 'Red Cuillin'.
Edinburgh, wintry dusk; the castle is catching the last of the evening light.
The Cuillin Ridge, Skye, seen from Bla Bheinn at dusk.
Pentland Hills and Edinburgh at dusk.
Compositionally inept, but nonetheless a moody view of Torridon in the rain.
Edinburgh postbox reflecting the dusk light, New Town.
Loch Lochy at dawn.
Suilven from Cul Mor.
Suilven from Cul Mor. A gathering of 3 rocks, parting company after admiring the view!
Stac Pollaidh illuminated by the setting sun amidst rain showers. I liked the way the cloud hugged the top of Sgorr Tuath (the peak to the left of Stac Pollaidh).
Soft Autumnal light over Loch Awe on a November dawn.
The Paps of Jura (and Rhuvaal lighthouse on Islay) as the sun goes down, mid Summer, from Beinn Eibhne on the Isle of Colonsay.
Panorama of Suilven, Quinaig (middle far distance behind a shower) and Canisp, from Cul Mor, Inverpolly. Such a wonderful part of the world. In this case, the near perfect forecast was replaced by torrential rain, and I was very lucky indeed to see this view - unfortunately I was more rushed than I would have liked as the weather closed in again.
Barrisdale Bay at dusk, Knoydart.
Panorama of Knoydart hills from Ladhar Bheinn, with Barrisdale Bay on the left.
Luinne Bheinn at dusk, Knoydart.
Summer flowers at moonrise, Isle of Wight.
Barrisdale Bay, Knoydart, Mid Summer stormy dusk.
River Spey and flowers blowing in the wind at dusk.
River Spey at dusk.
Pebbles on Spey Bay.
Slioch and snow showers.
Edinburgh from Inverleith at dusk.
The needles with bad weather approaching, Isle of Wight.
Dusk and heavy rain over the Solent from the Isle of Wight.
Scots pine by Loch Hourn. A beautiful place, and at this time of year, full of throngs of.....midges.
Curves, wildflowers, and dusk tones near Ventnor, Isle of Wight.
Barrisdale Bay and Loch Hourn from near the top of Ladhar Bheinn, Knoydart. I am so taken by this part of the country. Just beautiful. The walk in (and back!) is beyond the end of Loch Hourn that you can see in the far distance in this image! And the walk along the loch is not flat. Ladhar Bheinn itself is one of the most spectacular munros, but it's quite a brute to ascend (that's an understatement), especially with a full set of large format equipment. Next time I will bring just one lens, because this really is a long walk.
Barrisdale Bay, Knoydart, mid Summer dusk and rain showers (and midges!)
Barrisdale Bay from the slopes of Ladhar Bheinn, mid Summer dawn, Knoydart. While to many viewers, this will be no more than another 'pretty image', to me this is a record of one of the single most beautiful places I have been - in the world. The walk in is long, but the area is spectacular, and remote, and it has a feel - almost a soul - like no other I have experienced. It is magical beyond description.
Portobello beach, Edinburgh, at dusk in Winter. The foreground sand is, in places, reflecting the warm colours from the setting sun (the colours are reflecting off the clouds).
Another shot of a tree in Glen Lyon.
Rum from Sanna Bay, Ardnamurchan, in typical Scottish weather!
Torrential rain, Allt Mheuran looking towards the River Etive. This is a great picnic spot on the route up Ben Starav, and also a stretch of water frequently used by canoeists. It has also been well photographed over the last 10 years or so, and much better than by me.
Liathach (Torridon) from the North in September.
The islands of Eigg and Rum in very unScottish conditions!
The hills of Moidart (far left) and the Ardnish peninsula from South Morar at dusk.
Bidean nam Biam, Glen Coe.
Cliffs near Ventnor, Isle of Wight. Lashing rain, strong winds and low light made this shot with a long lens on a view camera challenging. I'm not a fan of using umbrellas for photography (most of my work is up North in the hills so it just adds more weight and most of the time in the hills above a reasonable altitute - when it's raining - it's too windy anyway - because rain is usually accompanied by a low pressure system). I've found that a waterproof darkcloth (available from Linhof & Studio) works brilliantly to keep the camera etc dry, but it won't keep water off the lens once the lens is exposed to the elements.
A fallen tree that has been caught up in the heather burning, looking towards the hills of Moidart with the broad shoulder of Rois-Bheinn most prominent.
Ben More on the Isle of Mull from the Isle of Colonsay; a longer lens with tilt has been used here. Colonsay is a fabulous island - so remote and so beautiful.
The Road to the Isles (which happens to be one of my favourite tunes on the pipes). Rum (left) and Skye (right) at dusk from South Morar.
Slioch in very soft light.
Ardtoe beach (near Acharacle) in the rain.
Disused boat near Ullapool
By the Priory on the Isle of Oronsay with Isla and Jura in the distance.
The Cuillins from South Morar at dusk. It may not be obvious to the viewer but technically this is quite a challenging image for a number of reasons, not helped by very strong winds, and the surface area of a view camera which acts like a mini sail.
Ardnish peninsula (right) and Arisaig (far distance) with Loch Ailort in the foreground at dusk on a very windy evening.
The Cuillins from Morar.
Loch Beoraid looking towards the Glenfinnan Hills, with heavy showers approaching. This part of Scotland is stunningly beautiful, even in relatively flat light.
Skye and Moidart at dusk.
The Isles of Eigg and Rum.
Glen Moidart on a stormy dusk. Just visible in the rain in the distance are (parts of) Rois-bheinn and Sgurr na Ba Glaise.
Beinn Eighe, North West Highlands, seen from the North. The signs of Spring are just starting to appear as the landscape shifts (in parts) towards a hint of green.
Beinn Eighe, North West Highlands, seen from the North. Very flat light, but nonetheless such a stunning part of the world, and sometimes it is hard to believe that you are actually in Britain.
Slioch, North West Highlands. I became well acquainted with this rock as I lost track of time under the dark cloth. It took a long time to align the crack in the rock with the Westerly edge of Slioch (the left edge), and even longer to adjust the focal plane so that the image is sharp throughout. If there had been any midges.......
Slioch amidst snow showers. This was supposed to be a fine day. I'm glad it wasn't!
Central Highlands from Ben Ledi, shortly before dusk. In the middle distance are Stob Binnean and Ben More.
Loch Lubnaig at dusk.
Spring view towards Ben Ledi.
Loch Achall at dusk in September.
Isla from Colonsay. I've deliberately used tilt to make the bottom of the wall out of focus.
While walking up Ben Ledi from Callander this was the view of Loch Lubnaig, and the Lawers hills in the distance, on a fine March day with a cold, clear, North Easterly wind.
Sidelight during a shower, Glen Lyon.
St Cyrus beach at dawn.
Panorama of Beinn Alligin and beyond in showery conditions, Torridon. As always, a low resolution screen image doesn't do this justice in a number of respects.
Panorama looking towards Canisp (left) and Cul Mor at dusk on a moody September evening.
The magnificent outline of Suilven. It is remarkable that there is a stone wall going over the top of this mountain!
Mid Summer dusk over the Atlantic from the Isle of Colonsay.
A tree! Glen Lyon, Perthshire.
Forth rail bridge before dawn.
Loch Coire na Caime on Liathach, Torridon. The mountain was shrouded in mist which partially lifted as a shaft of light burst through, giving life to the Autumn colours and the ridiculous number of erratic boulders.
Beinn an Eoin and Beinn a'Chearcaill, Torridon, at dusk. This is a sister image to one previously posted on this website. After a day of lashing rain and wind, this light burst through as the sun went down.
Dusk light hits Liathach, Torridon.
Edinburgh in Winter at dusk. This is unusual in that it is the first time that I have ever used lens tilt to make the focal plane go from the top of the scene (the branches) down towards the horizon. Had there been anything in the immediate foreground at the bottom of the secene, it would have been out of focus.
Dusk at Portobello beach, Edinburgh
St Cyrus beach, Angus, before dawn. Looking South towards Montrose and Dundee.
Forth rail bridge, Edinburgh.
