Braes of Achnahaird, the Far North West of Scotland

Posted by peter | Posted in Landscape, Nature Photos | Posted on 23-03-2010

One I prepared earlier as the saying goes .. from our holiday back in September, in the far North, near Achiltibuie, by the Summer Isles.

This region has many Artist’s studios, and small wonder, because the light here is pretty outstanding, ….. on a good day, like when I captured this. There are many hues in the grasses and mosses on the extremely wet moorland, and in September, the purple of the heather is in contrast to the reds, golds and greens. Blue skies can be elusive…..but they don’t compliment this region, where austerity becomes the attraction. You need mood to compliment the savagery of the weather and primeval landscape here with some drama, as here with the sunbeams breaking through, and a few patches of light, acting as a spotlight upon the scene.
Watch the wind in the grasses and experience poetry in motion.
Mix in the sound of Curlew and Golden Plover and you have food for the Gods !!

Scenic Canyon

Posted by peter | Posted in Landscape, Nature Photos | Posted on 22-03-2010

The first time I saw this magnificent canyon I wondered if it was a National Park. As a young man from the American Midwest, I was surprised to find it wasn’t. I’ve been here a hundred times since and still wonder why it isn’t. I have several photos from here to share, this one is HDR processed.

Near Bliss

Posted by peter | Posted in Flowers, Landscape, Nature Photos, Summer | Posted on 10-03-2010

Taken 3.33 miles from the original location of “Bliss”, the Windows XP wallpaper.

I had planned to get a shot from the bliss location even though it is now all grapevines, but when using Google Earth, I had incorrectly estimated the direction of the original shot. When I arrived the sun was not in a favorable position and the sky was boring gray clouds beyond the landscape. So, while waiting for the sun to move and the clouds to change I did a bit of exploring in the nearby area and was able to get many shots in directions where the sky was better. Unfortunately the sky got progressively worse and I abandoned the effort to photograph an updated “Bliss” during this trip.

amazing sunsets

I watched a beautiful sunset next to Oceanside Pier. I wish I lived closer to the beach; I never get tired of watching the sun set in places like this.

Winter scenes

Posted by peter | Posted in black and white, Landscape, Nature Photos, Winter | Posted on 26-02-2010

Many years ago, I experimented with infrared film on medium format cameras. As some of you might know, it was a difficult task. Long exposures, deep red filters, loading and a loading the film in total darkness. The result was a hit and a miss, in my case anyway, whatever came out ok I printed in my darkroom to dreamy like images. All this was dormant for years; I forgot how beautiful infrared photography could be. That was until I had Panasonic TZ3 point and shoot camera converted to IR. Amazing how easy it is in the digital age.
