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 […]

Autumn scenes in Perthshire

Last week I grabbed MadMike on his day off and dragged him into the cold winds of Perthshire to photograph the autumn leaves before they all fall off the trees. We ended up at Rumblin’ Bridge and The Hermitage and I was pleased with the results:

Abandoned buildings and sunset in Fife

  Just a wee little, last minute shoot as Ian was going to look at a car in Kilconquhar Fife. While he was looking at a possible new toy me and Darryl set out on foot and tried to beat the sunset. We got a few shots of the sun going down over the barley […]

The Glenshee Hills are alive with photography….

Another Friday night and another PK photo session. Craig, Sarah and I jumped in the car and headed to the Glenshee area with our cameras and after a day of beautiful sunshine we were met with cloudy skies and foggy hills. We went for a hike up a hill, got devoured by midges and somehow […]

Waterfall shutter speeds – a visual guide

Once again the wonderful people at Digital Photography School have come up with a great article regarding how the shutter speed determines the look of a waterfall. We love our waterfall shots here at PK so this was an interesting visual guide to illustrate what effects can be achieved by trying out different things. Ian’s […]

Winter Walk, last day of 2011

Myself, Father and my eldest sister, decided to go for a wee walk on the last day of 2011. As the weather left a bit to be desired we decided to not go too far and agreed to have a wee trip up to the Hermitage and walk through to the Rumbling Bridge. Ian had […]

The Hermitage – what a mess!

On my Sunday off (yesterday) I grabbed the family and went for a walk at Dunkeld’s Hermitage area, a hugely popular tourist spot. Despite the cold, snow and ice, it was quite busy with well-wrapped peeps. First thing I noted was the sign warning of closed areas due to storm damage from the recent high […]

Bruar and Moulin

Falls of Bruar then Moulin Moor North Perthshire Bruar and Moulin sounds all a bit French, but no we didn’t travel the country and cross the channel, just went up the A9 to North Perthshire and the start of the Cairngorms. It was a bit last minute as had planned to go out tomorrow but […]

Usan (east coast), night shoot

Location: Usan – Time: 1900-2100 Another Friday night and another night shoot for the PK crew! Sarah had come over to my place to edit and organise our last wedding shoot (at which she was a bridemaid) so by the time we were ready to go it was dinnertime. Usan was to be our destination […]

Braemar and Linn of Dee

LOCATION VIA GOOGLE MAPS My plan for a trip to South Queensferry today died on it’s backside when I discovered that the motorbike shop I wanted to visit (Forth Gear) was actually closed on Mondays. Plan B was swiftly thought up and Braemar was the new location. I had been up just the other week […]

Birnam Hill- Lost in Perthshire

Location:- Birnam Hill by Dunkeld  Time:- 10/4/10 1200-1530 The sun was finally shining and spring had at last sprung. I had the day off work and as it was Saturday I took father out for a wonder up a hill to get a few countryside photos and hopefully some of an ancient bridge. It’s been […]

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. We got plenty of excitement when we realised how slippy the rocks were but that wasn’t going to stop me climbing to […]
