I had a few days’ holiday at the end of May. The first day started in Perthshire and finished on the far north coast of Scotland – almost as far north as one can be – at St John’s Point, Caithness, looking north to Stroma and Orkney (disappearing as the distance haze turned to haar) […]
On a recent excursion elsewhere, a friend tipped me off to the existence of the gorge at Craighall, through which runs the remains of the abandoned A93 road from Blairgowrie to Glenshee. It’s funny to think that the bridge was constructed in 1994 and the road decommissioned in 2008, both of which are well within […]

Initial experiments with focus-stacking on the Fuji X-H1
I swapped all the Pentax gear to go wholly Fuji. Test photos happened.
