While  driving back from a visit to Tarbert by the desolate Carradale road, we chanced on this scene. No one was around and so it was impossible to know if it was deliberate or spontaneous? I took 5 to 10 minutes photographing this with the car stationary  on the single track road and no one…

    Nice sky, apparently these are deliberate fires and you need a licence/permit to do them and there is only about a two week window for the fires.

OK, I need your help again. Its round 2 of the Amateur Photographer of the Year competition. The results for round 1 (trees) were in Amateur Photographer magazine today and yours truly didn’t feature in the top 30 that they published. However undaunted I will press on optimistically. (I secretly have the ambition to get just…

    2 or 13 for me, really like the simplistic ones. The art gallery pictures are beautiful but not as unusual as your abstract ones.

    1 or 2. I would put in 2 as I think it fits the brief. Like Julie the Gallery shots are striking but only 4 and 11 fit the brief.

    My favourite is number 10 because of the animals and the aeroplane-in-a-builing! Best building on its own – number 1 – love the red, the big nuts and the church through the window…

    I’m too late….again!

  • That’s a clever answer to a tricky quoseitn

I managed to get some time yesterday in the Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow. This is an amazing, classical building on a grand scale. Photographically the challenge is that the pictures have to be handheld as it is a busy museum and a tripod is considered a trip hazard for visitors. The light is low except…

    So many gorgeous works of art, my favourites being the Scottish colourists and you choose a bloody plane, God help us. You are an artist, not an engineer. (Will we ever agree on anything?)

Well, this portrait photographer is trying something new again. It’s round 2 of the Amateur Photographer contest, “Inside a Building”, and I thought I would use it as an excuse again to try some new pictures. This weekend I snatched a moment or two in 2 shopping centres and a car park to catch some…

    Does round 2 mean you got through round 1 or this is just a second competition. I’m voting for number 3 if the title is internal architecture although I think all 3 are quite striking. Number 1 I really like but is decoration as opposed to architecture.

My friend and colleague Don and I were working on Bute recently. Although we had an intense time actually earning a living, we eventually managed to reward ourselves with a drive around what is a really amazing and under-visited island. This is Ettrick Bay, and the vague, looming landscape in the background is the isle of Arran in…
