It seems like ages since I have had the chance to get out with the camera in decent light conditions. Life has just been so busy with one ting and another that I have sadly missed a few opportunities, but then again the excellent quality of light we experienced earlier in the year has gone to a large extent. I guess this is quite normal unless you are out and about during the golden hours (pretty early and late at this latitude in summer) so I need to start applying more discipline and planning to my photography. When I set out on this blog journey I did so in an attempt to be a bit more focused and thoughtful as opposed to just shooting any old thing when chance provided me with an opportunity. Sadly, since the end of my Higher course in May I have kind of reverted back to my old ways, probably just a wind down after the effort of completing the final project, let's hope so.
Anyway, this shot was taken from outside the house yesterday morning when I saw some decent light and clouds on Sgurr Mor. I liked the way the fields below the hill were lit up and the foreground was quite bright too. This is a view I have become very used to over the past 20 years but it shows sometimes the familiar can be interesting too. For now, I intend to apply a bit more thought to my photography again, let's hope the results prove that it works.
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.
