I was in Crinan for a coffee and to enjoy the amazing light and location last Friday with my friend James. As soon as we saw the light hitting the boats (on a loch that James had fished when younger), we had to go to the waterside to enjoy the view. I had had my…

Nothing much to say here. Misty is a beautiful Maine Coon, and Finn is a handsome retriever. Prime lenses, high ISO and no flash. Aren’t they adorable. That’s all folks. Aren’t they gorgeous portrait victims.

    Matthew these pictures are beautiful. I love them.
    I’ve taken hundreds of pictures of Finn and not one has shown his true character. You’ve done it.

  • Great images and commentary, Matthew! Enjoyed the “tour” of Malta. I especially like several of your shots of Julie. In particular, the one over lunch with the focus on eyelashes and the one with the great smile that is either b&w or sepia. Wonderful captures!

It is tough, because one does always feel that one needs to capture the ‘documentary’ shots since this may be the only time one will see this spot. It is a struggle to do that AND to try and be creative. You have a nice variety and I do like the color shots of boats.
