Glencoe Autumn Morning

Glencoe-RiverFeel Free To Share – may brighten up a friends day

A quick upload today from my Glencoe trip, taken whilst out for a walk to the chip shop (I know how to live. lol) this late morning shot from looking down the estuary with Loch Leven behind me. The weather didn’t last too long like this as inevitably it doesn’t at Glencoe and the rains came down very heavy.

Busy processing day today and the fur kids need a big walk down to the river for some exercise.

Buachaille Etive Mòr – Blue Mist

Buckle-FLowMonday morning and why not start with the blues……

This one from Glen Etive standing waist deep in very cold very fast flowing water looking up at the Buckle shrouded in the blue tint of mist to the left, not a place to spend too much time and I was out and getting dried off as fast as I could.

Location wise it’s a very easy find but if you drive past you won’t recognise the Buckle itself, it forms the iconic shape just as you drive up the A82, Steep ascent with scree in the corrie, followed by a boulder ridge. The descent is on steep grass so be very careful.

Awful weather at the moment so it’s giving me ample opportunity to start planning the Isle of Skye trip for November, several locations to add to the book so some serious careful planning needs to done for a flying visit.

Lets hope the week improves

Curbar Edge Inversion

Curbar-MistEvening all

just a quick update from Curbar Edge where they have a mist inversion near enough every day, well worth a trip out if you’re into mist and scenic views, especially now we’re moving into the colder end of the year.

A quick apology to anyone that has anything -tive from me on Youtube or Facebook, looks like I have been hacked and as such may well have to close all the FB and YT links down and start again….not much fun but it will give me an opportunity to do some much needed house keeping, again apologies to anyone who received anything spurious and unlike me, I’ll try and find everyone again if I have to kill the accounts.

Jo collects her supa doopa new car tomorrow, she’s like a 5 year old, so excited and can’t sleep bless her, she deserves it and more for putting up with me all these years lol. I’ll post pics tomorrow

OK So I’m Not Perfect, Who’d Have Thought It?

Feel Free to Share

Autumn is here with a blast, brrrr, wind and rain and it’s set to stay a while now, will have to start getting my wet gear out now for the season.

Today’s shot just to show I make mistakes too and plenty of em believe me…BUT I do like the horse and thats what matters, I like it, I tend to shoot to sell such is the nature of a professional, I have to feed myself and the husky pack so going off  grid isn’t always an option unless like this one a mistake thats quite endearing and a little bit comical, won’t sell but you never know.

Enjoy your week all

So that’s our weekend sorted, is anyone up to anything better?, figure that will be everyone reading this.

Today’s image is from Anglesey, where else! and is of St Cywfans Churcha beautiful secluded bay that never seems to disappoint. Becoming a fave place of our to wind down after a hard day walking the pups, especially lovely to see the sun go down and calm seas.

Albion – Wild Horses

Anglesey-HorsesMorning all

One from a few weeks ago, shot on Anglesey with the wild horses.

The title is taken from and pays homage to the shoot I did with Ten and their forthcoming mega album Albion, just so happens the last track is called Wild Horses, seems fate has a large paw in pitching my work and their wonderful music together, have to say I’m excited about hearing the new album soon, release date 21st November.

You can find out all about the group on their  official website PRESS HERE may even be a couple of my pictures on there too for their promo work. Great vid of Gunrunning, well worth a listen.

Still sorting Christmas cards out at the moment, hopefully have them all finalised by the end of the week.

Big Stopper – Llanddwyn Island

Llanddwyn-Island-Speed-CrossHi all

 

nearly the weekend and I have a few shoots to complete for Monday, one in the Peaks so I’m pleased with that as it’s been quite a while, I may well take Stormy with me especially as she’s having a makeover on Saturday afternoon courtesy of Elite Dog Grooming, can’t to see the fluff ball as she’s been blowing her coat for the last month and driving us mad with wooly fur everywhere, 3rd hoover this year, nothing lasts with a husky!

 

Another shot from Llanddwyn Island, this time using my Lee Big Stopper filter to gain some cloud drag, shot was midday so it would only allow 30secs at f/22, worked quite well though didn’t it.

Barclodiad Y Gawres – Armageddon

Burial-MoundFEEL FREE TO SHARE

Morning all

and after a night of rain it’s beautifully sunny, blue skies, wonderful to wake up to and take the gang out for a walk.

Today’s image is one thats taken me quite a while to capture, waiting for all the elements to come into line, dark skies, dry yet humid for haze, and that RED moon was the icing on the cake, wonderful, just couldn’t believe my luck, helped by Dave with the torch and smoke machine, impossible without his help.

Barclodiad Y Gawres – History

Barclodiad Y Gawres burial chamber is a restored chambered cairn, and dates from 3000BC. It is the largest of the chambered tombs of Wales. It is dramatically situated on a headland to the north of Porth Trecastell (Cable Bay) on the west coast of Anglesey. The site has been extensively restored with a new stone wall supporting a concrete roof covered in turf.

The name translates into English as the Giantess’s Apronful.

Back Down To Earth – On With The Day Job

South-Stack-Pyramid-Mist A very happy Friday all,

After what seems to be a whirlwind week doing the album shoot for Ten which went down fantastically, was really great fun and the guys are awesome, all friendly and at the top of their game, if you love melodic hard rock with crystal clear vocals and stunning guitar work then Ten are the band for you. I am now their official photographer and will be doing other shoots in the near future, their new album “Albion” is due for release November 2014 I believe, can’t wait.

Finally managed to get round to processing my shots from Anglesey 2 weeks ago, this one is of South Stack lighthouse at sunset.

You’ll notice my trademark crystal pyramid but more importantly the misty smoke coming in from the right.  I have used this on countless shots and it also played a major role in the Ten shoot (pictures will be available after album launch, and sale to huge worldwide fan base), anyway my smoke machine is a Tiny CX and was supplied by http://www.smokemachines.net if you ask for Ben he’ll help you out, mention me and you’ll get a discount.  Very friendly company and his advice and knowledge of the product is fantastic, he not only saved me money but from buying the completely wrong model…..you tube doesn’t tell you everything lol

busy week ahead with 2 more shoots booked and prints to organise for an office environment…..

 

have a great weekend all
