Eidi

Earlier this year I visited the Faroe Islands and this series of photographs were taken at Eidi, a village located on the north-west tip of Eysturoy.

The coastline at Eidi is simply stunning and somewhere I could happily spend hour after hour photographing the waves battering off the rocky coastline with waterfall dropping into the ocean in the background.

I have shots from each location taken with varying shutter speeds to capture the water in different forms and patterns but I feel that these shots represent the location for me.

All photographs taken on a Nikon D610 and ISO 200 and I have provided specific lens and camera settings under each image. All images taken using a Gitzo tripod and with Formatt Hitech filters.

Loch an Eilein

This is a small series from a misty autumn sunrise at Loch an Eilein in the Cairngorms. I had gone with the hope of some nice colour behind the castle but it wasn't too be and instead it was shrouded in dense mist.

So I found myself working with the conditions and that also meant venturing away from the waters edge to shoot the woodland areas, trying to capture some of the atmosphere that morning.

There are a number of photographers I follow that capture woodland scenes superbly but it's not something I have spent much, if any, time trying. Given the conditions it presented a good opportunity to do so and the outcome is that there is definitely room for improvement.
