A handful of photos from a walk in the woods in Morvern – mostly native birch and oak trees, back-lit by low golden late-afternoon sunlight – absolutely beautiful. Come walk with me.
Larger Map Only catching up on photos taken at the end of April… Lady Mary’s Walk runs West from Crieff along the side of the River Earn, mostly on the flat until one reaches the foot of Laggan Hill after a mile or so, where it forms a circular route back to MacRosty Park. At […]
One of my favourite walks around the local area is the Oak Walk – running along the edge of a large field, it gets beautiful evening sunlight and has some characterful trees One or two local folk have populated it with wooden sculptures, for amusement factor And the surrounding paths are well populated with wild […]
It’s been a lousy grey and wet day – definitely dreich – here, so here are a few photos of a walk I took down the road one evening a few weeks ago, on a lovely sunny day. Graveyards? Not exactly my usual photographic cup of tea, but OK then… Landscape is a bit more […]

There’s an impressive outcrop of rocks (psammite and semi-pelite, looking rather like limestone) near the waterfalls in the River Affric. Some kindly soul had balanced these pebbles on a boulder on their way past previously.
The last in a short series of photos from a stroll around Perth. These are all processed slightly differently from my usual workflow – instead of darktable, I used RawTherapee with a film emulation (allegedly Fuji Provia). As with the others in this series, all images were made on a Helios 58mm f/2 prime lens, […]
For the final instalment in this series of images from Inverawe, three of the most characteristic subjects: sweeping lines of larch branches; a closeup of a particularly characterful oak leaf; and the road leading ever on and beyond. Thank you for following.
The beginnings of yummy juiciness – red and some ripe black blackberries.
I can never remember whether these are thistles or teasels. Either way, it’s quite an impressive ball of spikes. Go on, say it: you don’t want to be sitting on that…
