Festive Break

It's that time of year again!

With the exception of the weather it's been a fairly good year (photography wise) and I'm reasonably happy with the progress I have made with my photography... always room to improve!

At the start of the year my intention was to post a new image each week and I've kept this up for the majority of the year although the journal has suffered from a bit of neglect and a couple of other ideas I had for the site I have yet to implement.

My plan is to do a bit of work on the site over the holiday period but if the weather is dry then I'll be heading out with my camera instead!

Up North

Am heading up to the Cairngorms National Park for a few days in September and weather dependent I intend getting the camera out a few times as it’s an area I have not photographed before.

The challenge is working out where to go.

So far I have identified a couple of lochs worth visiting including Loch Morlich, Loch Garten and the boathouse at Loch Vaa. I will also try and visit Loch an Eilean for the castle on the island as well as ‘the bridge’ in Carrbridge.

I'm now in the process of loading them up in to the Photographs Ephemeris to allow me to work out the best time of date to visit each location as well as the twilight, sunrise and sunset time.

So the question is... have I missed anywhere?


It is Saturday morning and my alarm goes off at the unsociable time of 4.20am. I get up, stumble into the shower and 15 minutes later, after I've filled the thermos flask, I am in the car and on my way to Knapps Loch.

Looking Back

Looking back over the past 12 months, whilst I haven't been out taking photographs as often as I would have liked, as a result of doing more post processing and learning photoshop it has resulted in the biggest improvement in the quality of my photographs.
