Using a drone subtly

Using a drone isn’t all about “aerial photography”, but, for me, about the ability to get better angles for photos which are otherwise out of reach.

Trebarwith Strand

We recently spent a lovely couple of weeks on holiday, touring the south of England and spending a full week in Cornwall. On arrival at the self-catering cottage we’d booked, we chose to make things easy for ourselves and head to the Port William Inn for a pub dinner in one of the few buildings at the seaward […]

The luck and beauty of life

We are ever grateful for the opportunity to live in such a beautiful country. For the luck which means that we are of sufficient means to decide, based on a weather forecast, to drive for fifteen minutes and ascend in a rattling funicular cabin to a place which feels like the top of the world. All to […]

Locarno, Switzerland

At the end of a long afternoon’s drive from home, via Kandersteg, Brig, the Simplon Pass and a very narrow and windy road through the Ticinese mountains, we arrived at Locarno, on the shores of Lago Maggiore, just in time to catch the last sun of the winter day.

Evening Cruise

Ask anyone who knows me well, and they’ll probably be familiar with me excusing myself during dinner to step out and photograph the sunset.

Experiments in HDR

I’ve been meaning to spend a little time to sit down and really get to grips with the High Dynamic Range editing process. For the unititiated, the HDR is a photo which contains detail within a much wider range of tones than is possible through an individual shot, from deep shadows to bright highlights.

Trossach Mountains from the A9

Driving between Stirling and Perth on our way back to Angus, I saw this jaw-droppingly beautiful pink sunset over a fog-covered winter landscape alongside the main road. So, I jumped on the brakes, pulled into a farm access road and waded through calf-deep snow to get as many shots as I could before the light changed.
