    A Month in the Van

    not too bad at all .. the only issue here on Mull is there is no LPG so we are having to be a little careful with supplies as we want to stay on until the weekend

    The Frozen North

    A bit of time on the Isle of Mull which while iconic for wildlife isn't somewhere folks normally think about when it comes to Landscape Photography. Has been a pretty cold week with wind chill sending the mercury plummeting. And for those interested some rambling in my latest vlog.

    A Month in the Van

    First stop, The Lakes ... Our first month-long trip in the van sees us first hitting the Lakes under blue skies. Didn't get the big boy camera out at all, just explored lots with the iPhone. Next stop Scotland, where I hear it's a touch colder. Follow our adventures here.

    A little bit of storm light

    While I'm looking forward to exploring more Ireland in the van, it's the lochs, the mountains, the forests and the coastline of Scotland that has me super excited ... Not long now (well that's what I keep telling myself)

    Signing Prints

    Morning all, I've been asked by a friend for whom I am creating a print to sign it .... I've never signed any of my prints, mainly as (wait for it) I don't actually have a signature - trust me it's bit me in the ass a few times ... So he really (REALLY) wants me to sign it and I'm wondering...

    The Go-Around

    Mooching by the coast .... I love, on this particular beach, how the color of the wet sand contrasts with the flow of the tide .. A spot you don't often get to stand as most times the rage of the ocean would consume you ... The top right dryer patch annoys me but was impossible to take out in...

    Winters gone by. (5 pics)

    Love these Scott ... for someone who has never (shame on me) witnessed proper winter conditions, these really do portray such a fantastic overall feeling. The subtle processing on that-there popular spot really gives such an amazing feeling of silence ... Stunning .. thanks for sharing ..

    Pink Dawn

    As I arrived the whole place was bathed in this glorious pre-dawn pink light .. I even had to record a short video reminding myself that my white balance wasn't off ;) A slight breeze was creating patterns in the pool of sea water left behind from the outgoing tide which I kinda liked ...

    My Darkest Woods

    Thanks, Scott, very much appreciated ... I think it's one of the only very few shots (certainly in the forest) where I was able to realize a vision in the field and get it someway close to what I had hoped for in post ... Still completely baffled by split toning which is how I originally...

    My Darkest Woods

    A wee dram was at the forefront of the processing exercise ... wanting to highlight the area to the right of the tree, giving the impression the light from the yellow bush, which to me reminded me of a burning torchlight ... with this in mind there was liberal use of dodging and burning ... I...
