A Landscape Photographer based in the North West of Scotland
It's wild here most of the time which suits me fine. I don't like bland weather. I enjoy the fury of a savage storm and a walk in the wilderness with my camera and essential companion, Jock my Dog. Occasionally it can be so calm and tranquil you might think this place is Nirvana. A false sense of security until the next gale blows in, another deluge starts and torrents of water hurtle down the hillsides. All Four Seasons in one day is normal here !
Then a glimmer of light appears giving hope, and Magic happens. I attempt to capture those fleeting moments of light. Sometimes it is a long wait. No problem in such beautiful surroundings while the Sun and Clouds play Hide and Seek.
I have used many meaningful quotes on this site that I feel explain how I think and feel. I love the Great Outdoors and solitude.
'Only a Hill but all of life to me, up there between the Sunset and The Sea'
'Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating;there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.'John Ruskin
