A handful of photos from walking the dog one afternoon – stark trees, mist, low clouds, distant hills: Perthshire landscape at its autumnal moodiest.
I spent the morning of Dec 22 – the first day of winter – up Kinnoull Hill. There was beautiful mist rising from the River Tay as it meanders through the Carse of Gowrie. I experimented with a few new compositions too: semi-abstract views of the hills of north Fife, the motorway/A90 junction and the […]

I just strolled home through the fog from an evening at the photographic society.
A fairly obvious shot from a viewing location on the south side of the Tay, the road bridge disappearing in a stream of lights flowing to Dundee in the fog. At night. As a long exposure, because it’s what one does, right?
There’s something a bit romantic about the cosiness of suburban streets in the fog.
This is what it looked like, walking Dog through the local woods this morning.
