Today was National Meadows Day and to celebrate the NTS held an event at Drumbuie with Simon Larson offering tuition in macro photography of some of the wonderful plants found in and around the croft meadows there. These shots represent the best of my efforts which were a bit hampered by some damp weather and fairly strong winds which made focussing on the moving plants pretty difficult.
Following the outdor session at Drumbuie we moved over to Balmacara Square to the Steadings Gallery where Simon set up some studio lights and we tried some shots under morte controlled conditions. I didn't have the chance to do much with the flowers but got this shot of a snail on a birch log.
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.
