Rainbow over Largo Bay

Last Week’s Shoot – Largo and Leven

I’ve now caught up with the processing from my recent trip to Fife – finishing off with images from my walk from Upper Largo (or Kirkton of Largo) down to Leven in the East Neuk of Fife. I got off the bus in Upper Largo to have a look at the fine old church, which […]

Gordon Highlanders Statue Aberdeen

Last Week’s Shoot – Aberdeen

I’m nearly caught up with the processing from my recent trip to Scotland, so this is a shoot from last month rather than last week!  I’d never been up to Aberdeen before but wanted to have a look round, so I’d booked an advance trip as it’s still a fair distance up from St Andrews […]

City Square in Dundee

Last Week’s Shoot – Dundee

This is actually a shoot from the week before last as I’m still catching up on processing from my latest trip to Fife, staying in my friend’s comfortable apartment in St Andrews.  It’s just a short hop over the Tay on the bus from St Andrews to Dundee, so it’s a place I’ve visited a […]

V&A Dundee at Dusk

I visited Dundee at dusk on my last trip to St Andrews two years ago and saw the construction work underway for the new V&A Dundee design museum on the waterfront as I crossed the Tay Bridge so on my recent return trip I was keen to get back and photograph the new building, which […]

Kirkcaldy and Dysart

I’ve now completed the processing from the recent visit to Fife with images from a walk along part of the Fife Coast Path starting in Kirkcaldy. Kirkcaldy boast a fair few interesting old buildings including Kirkcaldy Old Kirk (featured image, top) and the Scandinavian influenced Town House (above).  Heading along the High Street there’s also […]

Dunfermline and North Queensferry

On my recent visit to Fife I explored a bit further from my base in St Andrews than I had previously with shoots further inland rather than just around the East Neuk of Fife.  One shoot took me to Dunfermline for the day, with a dusk shoot down at North Queensferry to admire the Forth […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Dundee at Dusk

I’m just back from what seems to have become an annual winter trip to St Andrews in Fife, so have got plenty of processing to catch up on.  For my dusk shoot on the day I arrived I left the Kingdom of Fife and crossed the River Tay to Dundee. The main subject I had […]

A Walk on Kerrera

As mentioned in my recent A Walk on Lismore post, my other favourite island walk on my summer trip to Oban was Kerrera, the island closest to Oban that protects Oban Bay from the worst of the weather. After a hearty Scottish breakfast at the B+B in Oban, I set off along Gallanach Road toward […]

A Walk on Lismore

During my summer visit to Oban on the West Coast of Scotland I did a bit of island hopping – including the obligatory Mull, Iona and Staffa – though the best two days were spent walking on Kerrera (more on that later) and the lovely Isle of Lismore, a long, low and lush island in […]

Tentsmuir Forest and Tayport at Dusk

During my recent trip to St Andrews I had my first visit to the nearby Tentsmuir Forest, which is an easy walk from Tayport on the northern Fife coast so I combined exploring the forest with a dusk shoot at Tayport harbour. I picked an afternoon with the most overcast and still weather forecast of […]
