Had a trip to Orkney this summer. A beautiful set of Islands full of big views, great driving, wide open spaces and lots and lots of history. We only had a few days but jammed in as much as we could, visiting historical sites ranging from neolithic Standing stones, Cairns covered in Viking graffiti, to […]

Perth Highland Games

It was Highland Games time, so i went along with the zoom lens to see what I could get. There was a good crowd of people and the dog agility (by Kairyn’s Canine Capers) was particularly popular to watch, though there were the usual track and field events too as well as pipe bands, solo […]

Perth Highland Games

PK agreed to do the photography for the Perth Highland games, held on the North Inch in the pouring rain and biting wind. In a classic Scottish Irony the weather had been lovely up to the week of the games and, though there had been rain in that week, the day before (when the Kilt […]

POW Camp and Loch

  Ian let us go out for a photo shoot at last. Wasn’t exactly great weather but we headed out anyway. Ended up at Cultybraggon camp in Comrie again (fabulous place), this is an old POW and army training camp. The place had been secured more than last time we were there (due to some […]

Hats and portraits

I did a wee photoshoot for a friend’s daughter who is a young and upcoming model and actress. We were a bit limited with space, but thankfully young Holly was happy to try different positions and to listen to my mad ideas. Once she (and myself) got into the swing of it and especially when […]

Stars over POW camp

It’s that time of year when we go out more at night than during the day as the days are short and the skies are beautiful. I had the frankly ingenious idea of going back to Cultybraggon POW camp at Comrie. Although it was quite chilly it was well worth it, the old huts and […]

Garden Project

  Took a trip down to work offices to do some photos of the garden project there. They are doing up the gardens and growing their own veg in a poly tunnel. It is run by our in house gardener and is tended by various service users with learning disabilities.  They have done a fabulous […]

Perth Show

  Managed to get down to the Perth Show after my nightshifts and did some photos for the Beautiful Perth lot. It was thankfully a nice day and I had a good wander around, looking around the many stalls, selling things, promoting things, looking for new volunteers. Then there were the Horse shows and the […]

Waterfalls, Glens and Sunsets

  Me and Ian went for a a wee jaunt the other day. We had no real idea where to go and as I was still suffering a bit from a particularly random and weird perceptional migraine (including inability to control volume, losing words and replacing them with ‘third’ and pixelated vision!) I really wasn’t […]

Picnic in the Park

 Part of me enjoying time off work in the sunshine, I met my sister and her kids at the South Inch park for a picnic. I planned to get a few photos of them all together but it just wasn’t going to happen as they just wouldn’t stay still! They did however play a lot […]

Sea and Flowers

Had a wee trip up the coast with friends. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining bright, however the breeze coming off the North Sea had a real nip in it and it was not warm enough to be going around in a swimsuit and sarong, as some people were. The beach […]

St Andrews, Balvaird and a hill in Fife

 Was lucky enough to get out twice over the 2 nice days we had, when it didn’t chuck it down. First was an evening shoot at St Andrews, we were heading for Lindores Loch, but in classic Sarah style I couldn’t remember how to actually get there and we couldn’t find it!  But all worked […]

Finlarig Castle Ruins

Sarah and I jumped in the car and headed to Killin today to visit the ruin of Finlarig Castle. Armed to the teeth with our infrared filters, the sky was in perfect condition with white fluffy clouds and deep blue skies for some IR work. Shooting at iso 100 and around f.7 we were hitting […]

Kenmore, Loch Tay and the Crannog

Spring is certainly struggling to make an impact this year but rather than let the bad weather hinder our outings, we decided last night to head off to Kenmore – in the rain! I even mounted the GoPro camera in the car to do a little timelapse of our journey (check out the video below). […]
