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 […]
Black Spout Waterfall, Pitlochry Some days you only need to come away with one landscape image to justify an excursion. 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, […]
One of my favoured walks around Argyll is a couple of miles south of Taynuilt, the White Ant trail around Glen Nant. Ben Cruachan dominates the surrounding landscape – especially on a cool winter’s day: Last summer I was pleased to fulfil a client’s requests for several of my photographs; one of the black & […]
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.
I’ve been to Birnam Hill and Duncan’s Hill area at least six times, so it made a good testing ground for the new Pentax K-1 camera. It wasn’t the best of days for landscape photography – a bit early in the day for what little light there was to be really photogenic – but there […]
The Bracklinn Falls are an impressive waterfall, located in the Highland Boundary Fault zone just outside Callendar in the Trossachs. The prevailing rock is diamiction till, so not quite the psammit or semi-pelite characteristic of the Highlands, but close enough. The Keltie Water is responsible for eroding the rock into some chunky shapes. Starting at […]
On the third day of my holiday last year, the weather took a turn for the worse and my chosen route for the day was closed until Spring, so I went for a walk around the Reelig Glen just outside Inverness. To be more accurate, the first walk around the glen was favourably interrupted by […]
This is fast becoming one of my favourite walks around town – not least because it’s less muddy than the other track out the back. Yesterday I awoke to find the world had turned white, complete with snow-drift piled-up on the front lawn by a passing snowplough. Naturally, over-inflated reports of traffic confusion abounded, although […]
Having contemplated the role of water in the landscape, the second aspect by which to contemplate Glen Affric is the trees. Home to the largest Caledonian Forest reserve, the place boasts beautiful naturally-seeded old Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees, their orange-brown bark full of gnarly character; there are also birch and juniper to be seen.
