Sunrise at Kinnoull Hill

Early one morning in August I set off up Kinnoull Hill in Perth; a 40-minute stroll through the woods and I arrived at the top just in time for sunrise. There are a couple of classic viewpoints, although juggling foreground foliage is not the easiest. This is the view closer to the tower with a […]

Birnham Hill

One of my favourite views is the Highland Boundary Fault running through the landscape, immediately in front of me standing at Stair Bridge Viewpoint part-way up Birnam Hill. It looks particularly pleasant with light and cloud-shadows zipping over the trees too:

Lady Mary’s Walk, Crieff

On Saturday I set sail with Doglet and a friend and strolled through Black Spout Woods around Pitlochry, up to the viewpoint across the gorge where you can see the full height of the waterfall, […]

A Day In Clouds

That was 2017-06-20, that was. A beautiful blue sky with white fluffy wispy cirrus cloud catching the setting sun… …followed by a noctilucent cloud display around 1am: NLCs are the highest-flying clouds, occurring at altitudes up to 80km where the next highest type (cumulonimbus) only reaches 12km and most are lower still. Most typically they […]

Around Here 5: Subtlety

A short series of photos made while walking the Doglet at some length yesterday evening. With the scenery of Strathearn along the end of the street, it’s kinda nice living around here. And the clouds merited a bit of appreciation too.

Around Here

Just a few photos of the landscape of Strathearn to the north of Auchterarder – testing a new ultra-wide lens during the evening’s dog-walk.
