It has been a bit of a grey couple of days and work has meant there have been no opportunities to get any new shots so I thought I would look back at a few of my older ones, some of which have been scanned from slides, so that is going back a while.
This old photo of Suilven in Assynt was taken when I was still a student, one fine evening when the light was special. We were camping at Achmelvich and had been up Quinaig that day. During the evening I went for a bit of a walk, nearly 6 miles in the end, what it is to be young when going up a hill like that doesn't end up with you knackered for a couple of days afterwards, never mind going for a walk in the evening. The shot was taken on a 35mm film camera, I can't remember for sure which one but it was probably my old Praktika. I usually used Fujichrome or Kodachrome slide film. This digital image was created from the original slide using a lens attachment on my Fuji Finepix S5500, which is no longer working. Not bad for such an old slide.
I may do this a bit with some of my favourite shots from time to time when I haven't got any new ones.
The map shows where I took the photo from, not the location of Suilven.
I am an amateur photographer who is also a Chartered Geographer (GIS) with his own part-time consultancy business and I work as an estate manager for a national conservation charity in Scotland. I am based in Lochalsh, Wester Ross, Scotland, just next to the Isle of Skye.
