Falls of Bruar Revisited

With a couple of hours to spare on Sunday afternoon, I revisited the Falls of Bruar. EvenĀ  on a grotty wet day there were plenty of opportunities, around the lower bridge. It’s at least the 8th time I’ve been there – but the geology is impressive as always with the natural arch formed by the […]

Buchanty Spout

Sedimentary conglomerate rocks, a bend in the River Almond and some nice late afternoon light. I’ve never explored this area particularly, but on a whim having passed through the hamlet of Buchanty the previous day, with a day to spare and remembering someone in the local photographic society having posted a nice photo of the […]

Above Comrie

A selection of photos taken around Glen Lednock, mostly up the Melville Monument overlooking Comrie. This is Highland Boundary Fault territory; the fault itself runs up Glen Artney from the south-west straight through Cultybraggan PoW Camp, on through Comrie and across the A85 to the east. I was also struck by how vintage Comrie itself […]

Corrie Fee

It seems like ages ago now – but back in April, a friend took me for a walk up Corrie Fee near Glen Clova. It was the first time I’ve been there, and didn’t know exactly what to expect; the first stretch through the forestry was pleasant (once the weather made its mind up what […]

Around Birnam Hill

A handful of photos from a stroll up Birnam Hill near Dunkeld. It makes a great weekend afternoon stroll – past a wonderful little waterfall with views looking out over the Highland Boundary Fault.

The Hermitage

A small selection of photos from The Hermitage near Dunkeld: some experiments with tree filigree – appreciating the patterns of tree branches and twigs lightly silhouetted against the sky – and the Black Linn waterfall as the River Braan flows through a gorge (some obligatory long-exposure work too, of course). I met a gorgeous collie-x-lurcher […]

Cauldron Falls, West Burton

One of my favoured parts of North Yorkshire’s scenery is the well-known waterfall at West Burton. Always good for a bit of classical landscape photography, exploring both context and closeup (“intimate landscape”); it’s also quite fun to compare with other people’s views of the same location, although I envy anyone who manages to get good […]

A Bit Spooky

I’ve taken a few photos of these small waterfalls since the start of the year. This time, I went for the context of the surrounding caves as well, and just for a change, shot it using the new mobile phone camera before processing as an HDR panorama. Port Mora, along the Southern Upland Way from […]

Wee Waterfall

Wee Waterfall

I’ve made a few photos of this waterfall since the start of the year: it might only be small, located a long walk away from home in the corner of Port Mora bay beside a cave, but being my own discovery makes it more favourite than some of the other waterfalls in Galloway. SRB ND1000 […]
