The Ring of Brodgar

Ring of Brodgar




































Afternoon all

todays image is from the beautiful island of Orkney way up north with a ferry crossing in between. Far more populated than I thought it would be especially Kirkwall with its spectacular St Magnus Cathedral.

Numerous places to visit but high on my tick list was “The Ring of Brodga” for summer solstice. Sadly the weather disappointed and all we had was cloud. It was still lovely to be there and we’ll be going again in Jan 2017 for the Viking festival on Shetland so we’ll make a stop off, and of course the wolfs will be with us, never leave them behind.

Hope to have some more news on the wolfs soon too, plans are being made and fingers crossed I’ll make a really great announcement in July.




The Italian Chapel – Lamb Holm

The-Italian-ChapelThe Italian Chapel – Lamb Holm

This small but very ornate Catholic Chapel was built on the small uninhabited island of Lamb Holm on Orkney during World War II by Italian prisoners. It was restored during the 60’s and received Listed building status A.

In my usual style of “must get the shot” I sneaked in and removed a table chairs and flowers to get as close a symmetrical shot as possible, much to the dismay of the American and Japanese tourists looking on, obviously never met a Yorkshire man before! I of course put everything back where I found it…I’m a good boy really, don’t believe what they tell you.






Old Man of Hoy

Old-Man-of-HoyHi All


finally got 30 mins to do a little processing of my Outer Hebrides and Orkney shoot from a couple of weeks ago, even with all the rain I managed several decent groups of shots so I’m quite pleased with myself.

We have also booked for Ireland, I have so far identified 24 locations for shoot in 8 days so I’ll be a busy boy, at least the woofers will enjoy all the walking and no doubt rain !

Loads more to follow
