Breaking the rules

Travel photography... I haven’t had much experience in this type of photography before my road trip around Scotland last spring. But I think it was actually an advantage that helped me to create my own unique photo-story. And I’m very pleased with how it turned out.To begin with, I have to say that to me photography is all about capturing emotions and feeling and “rules” come second. I’m a firm believer that it is more important to develop our own style and vision rather than imitate someone... continue reading

Summer in Scotland - part II

(Continued fromhttps://www.dreamstime.com/blog/summer-scotland-part-i-48775)Whisky distilleriesThe main source of income for Scotland is whisky which is exported to almost every corner of the world. Many of the distilleries are open for visitors so make sure to visit (at least!) one when you are in Scotland. Hint: often the guided tours end with a free sample...EdinburghEdinburgh is a vibrant city with many attractions. Edinburgh Castle is of course the main attractionbut... continue reading

Summer in Scotland - part I

Summer in Scotland - well, it sounds a bit contradictory… Scotland is probably not the first destination you will think of when you plan your summer vacation. Most people will associate summer with beaches, lots of sun, and a nice warm climate. These are, without offending anyone, not characteristics of Scotland! However, there are many other reasons for paying Scotland a visit and judged on the crowds at some of the attractions, not all people go to the beaches for their summer vacation.Beautiful... continue reading

First Photo approved. YEAH

Got an email from DT today with my first photo apporoved. Gave me a little thrill, but, not allowing myself to get too carried away. After all, it was just a photo of some rocks.I actually had to go to Scotland from Australia to take that photo.And it was around 40 years ago that I was at the same place, (Findhorn Bay), where I first saw the stony beach around a bay that empties at low tide.Naturally, the buyer, if there ever is one, doesnt know that, nor the memories and emotions that go with... continue reading

Back on Camera

Saturday the 22nd April was lovely sunny day, albeit a bit cold outside.Lighting was perfect to capture some images.I decided to travel to Loch Leven as its a place I've heard of but never been to before.I was unsure what to expect.So here goes, i type 'Loch Leven' into the Sat Nav and on the road I go.Ended up lost down a farm track but gave me the opportunity to steal a few snaps. Eventually I made it to a place called 'Loch Leven Larder' this was a small garden centre type... continue reading

For new ideas for images listen to the news!

The Scottish National Party want Scotland to be an independent country and a referendum is planned for September 2014.Why with costs of all the additional politicians, ambassadors and civil servants one wonders do they want it. Taxes will surely rise to pay for it.Slogans like better together and stronger together are being quoted.Then miserable apartsprings to mind when you consider creating a border where presently none existsand one might invent a new slogan 'Divorce: say no'.... continue reading

Halloween 2012 in Inverness Scotland.

Yesterday was Halloween so its surprising that this morning I already have images on Dreamstime.It came about because Highland Council arranged entertainment on Ness Islands for the evenings on Friday and Saturday 26th and 27th October. This was a brave decision because at this time of year, the islands situated in the middle of the River Ness can be flooded and / or underwater. The illuminated islands are reached by a bridge across the river and have many large trees. The tradition of Halloween... continue reading
