Landscape, Nature and Art Photography
From some of the world's oldest rocks in Assynt in the far north of Scotland, to the flora and fauna that flourish where the forces of geology have caused huge disruption in rural Perthshire, to the landscapes of Argyll and rolling gentle hills and coasts of Dumfries and Galloway, observing the natural environment brings a restorative tranquility.
In landscape, people say one should strive to capture what it feels like to be in a given location. For me, landscape is normally calm; it ticks at its own slow and reassuring pace. Therefore, a realistic or documentary approach seems appropriate. Whether it's rushing waterfalls or calm coastal stillness or a small hedgerow detail that catches my eye, I hope to convey a sense of restfulness and the place's identity.
For four years from April 2010 I made a photograph per day,
always black-and-white, focussing on the minutiae of life in the
woodlands of Inverawe; a selection of images can be found in my
mini-blog, No Light.
I continue to be fascinated by black and white for both art and landscape purposes.
