The Hermitage featuring leaping salmon

Last summer we took a trip to the Hermitage near Dunkeld, Perthshire, and had the luck of seeing some salmon trying to make their way up the waterfall. Most of the close ups were captured on a 70-200mm lens which was pointing down at the falls from above.

Rumbling Bridge

 Very Rudely Ian decided to have a life away from photography so couldn’t  join me on my little outing. But fear not I took a newbie with me instead, just not the same by myself and without someone to help me if I get stuck somewhere. Though think I’m getting a bit old and fearful, […]

Proper Winter

At last proper winter with proper snow, WooHoo! Unfortunately had to watch most of through a window at nighttime due to Nightshift, but did manage to get out a bit.  Before my nights I managed to get out and about with Ian and Mike to the hermitage on a snowy night. None of us remembered a […]

Perthshire & Angus- searching for snow!

Location: Perthshire and Angus   Time: 1400ish 28.02.10 While my father is the all time wonderer, my mother is a woman what lunches.

The Hermitage, Dunkeld

Location: The Hermitage | Time: 1300 17/02/10 Really? The Hermitage? Again? Yes, we revisited one of the most over photographed areas of Scotland once more in the hope of something new and exciting.
