Landscape Photography | Fairy Pools | Scotland



Views:71|Rating:5.00|View Time:6:37Minutes|Likes:10|Dislikes:0
I’ve been wanting to photograph the beautiful Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye in Scotland for some time. The water was bitterly cold and although not that deep as I discovered, I had waders which enabled me to stay in position long enough to get the shot. Oh, and talk to you lovely people as well. Enjoy 🙂

Landscape Photography Scotland – Nikon D7200 Camera – Exploring Glencoe.

Landscape Photography Scotland – Nikon D7200 Camera – Exploring Glencoe.

Landscape photography trip up to Glencoe to try and capture an early morning sunrise. However the weather was not the best so decided to use it as an opportunity to practice and also explore areas for future landscape photographs. Had some issues with my new camera the Nikon D7200 and pictures from this trip. Have now found out with help from a fellow photographer who was kind enough to spend a morning with me to look at what I was doing wrong.

Mistake number one was having not switching off the VR (Vibration Reduction) on the lens when mounted on the tripod.

Second mistake was the f/ stops that I was using ideally with my lens. Should really have been around f/8 – f/11 as they seem to be the sharpest for what I was looking for.

Something that I am also getting to keen on using is HDR or merged images that are giving some of the photographs I had taken a cartoon / painting type look to them. So need to do more research and tone down on how much I use this technique.

Always trying new things and techniques in the art of outdoor filmmaking. Also now adding and learning the art of landscape photography. So now using both mediums I hope to capture my experiences visiting and exploring this amazing place I am lucky to live in called Scotland.

So as always thanks for watching and if you enjoyed my film please thumbs up and subscribe and until the next time, take care.

Atb Ray.

_________________________________________________________________

Despite their modest height, walking and climbing in the Scottish mountains may be made treacherous by their latitude and exposure to Atlantic weather systems. Even in summer, conditions can be atrocious; thick fog, strong winds, driving rain and freezing summit temperatures are commonplace. The content shown in my films are just my own opinions, thoughts and as a way to record my trips. Walking and hiking in the Scottish mountains & hills can be dangerous and is done entirely at your own risk.

Hazards you may encounter include:

Open moorland Terrain, few distinct landmarks, difficult navigation.
Crags and steep drops near summits.
Boggy areas.
River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.
Snow and ice on summits even in early summer.
Sudden changes in weather conditions.
Temperature decreases by 1 degree C for every 100m of ascent.

Note:

You are responsible for your own safety.
Are you fit enough to complete your chosen walk in the available time?
Ensure you have the correct clothing for the changeable Scottish weather.
Know where you are going on the walk and follow the route on your map.
At the very least carry a map & compass, survival bag, torch, whistle and small first aid kit.
Ensure you have enough food plus emergency rations.
Cold temperatures will reduce the life of your batteries.

In severe winter conditions you must carry an ice axe. You are also recommended to carry crampons.

Learn and know how to use your equipment.

Old Photographs Of Edzell Angus Scotland

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Edzell, Scottish Gaelic: Eigill, a village in Angus. It is 5 miles north of Brechin, by the River North Esk. The original village of Edzell was located around the walls of the first Edzell Castle, a motte and bailey structure to the south of the present castle. The existing village of Slateford was expanded in the early 19th century by the Earl of Panmure. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited Edzell, as part of a Royal progress through Angus and Kincardineshire, just weeks before Albert’s sudden death. Edzell was not connected to the railway until 1896, and only had a passenger service until 1931, although it reopened experimentally in the summer of 1938. The line closed to freight traffic in 1964. In the twentieth century, the increasing popularity of golf led to more tourists visiting Edzell Golf Club. At one point the village had three large hotels. The original course was laid out in 1895 by Bob Simpson, top golf course architect of his day. In 1934 the course was re-designed on recommendations made by the famous James Braid who was born in Earlsferry, East Neuk of Fife, and remains virtually unchanged to this day. Loups Bridge near Edzell is now unused, the bridge carries a path over the River North Esk, which here forms the boundary between the the parishes of Edzell in Angus, and Fettercairn in Kincardineshire. The bridge was built by John and James Justice of Dundee.

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Arrochar; Scottish Gaelic: ‘An t-Àrchar or An Tairbeart Iar, a village located near the head of Loch Long, on the Cowal peninsula in Argyll and Bute, Scottish Highlands. The village is within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Historically in Dunbartonshire, it is overlooked by a group of mountains called the Arrochar Alps. For over five centuries this area, the feudal barony of Arrochar, was held by the chiefs of Clan MacFarlane and before them by their ancestors the barons of Arrochar. The family is Celtic in the male line and native to their Highland homeland of tall peaks and deep lochs just above the waist of Scotland. The settlement was a key target for Viking raiders who took their boats two miles overland to Tarbet to attack the unprotected inland settlements at Loch Lomond before their defeat in 1263 at the battle of Largs.

Photography in Scotland: 1 day, 6 locations & 13 photos

A classic bit of landscape photography in Scotland today. I went to 6 locations and made 13 photos!

This photography project in Scotland has been going really well. There are obviously lots of places for landscape photography in Scotland. But, what you often struggle with here is the weather. And, somehow, the weather has been cooperating. Sure, it hasn’t been perfect, but when is it ever? I’m very happy with how the photography vlog series here in Scotland is going so far.
I started off the morning at a place called Carrbridge. It’s an old stone bridge that makes for a great photo. The light wasn’t perfect, but it’s a cool enough location that it kind of stands on it’s own. Then, I rolled down to a castle, found some highland cows, and ended in Glencoe.
The light was perfect for landscape photography in Glencoe. Absolutely perfect. I made 13 images today, and I’m very pleased with how it’s all going. Scotland is just unreal.

To Scotland for Landscape Photography

My Camera Gear:

Scotland is a playground for landscape photography. There are so many picturesque places to make photos. I’m heading north on a photography assignment with Visit Britain where I’ll be photographing some of the most iconic landscapes in the area.
My first location is one of the most popular landscape photography locations in Scotland. Bow fiddle has long been a favourite of photographers visiting Scotland, and I’ve wanted to photograph it for ages. So, I took the chance on my first visit to Inverness area.
The location didn’t let me down either. The light was beautiful and I walked away not only with one or two images but a handful of pictures that I think will really work well. I’m extremely happy with the way the first day went.
On tomorrow’s vlog, I’ll have some more landscape photography as I head to Glencoe – one of Scotland’s most beautiful places.

Old Photographs Of Isle Of Colonsay Inner Hebrides Scotland



Views:5|Rating:nan|View Time:2:6Minutes|Likes:0|Dislikes:0
Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Colonsay, Scottish Gaelic: Colbhasa, an island in the Inner Hebrides, located north of Islay and south of Mull. During the 18th century the lairds of the island were Macneils, and included Archibald Macneil. Colonsay House was first built by the Mcneil family in 1722. Colonsay is the ancestral home of Clan Macfie and the Colonsay branch of Clan MacNeil. Little is known of the early history of the Clan Macfie, however, it is certain that the clan served under the Lords of the Isles, descendants of Somerled, who ruled the Hebrides from the 14th century to the late 16th century. Following the forfeiture of the Lordship of the Isles in the late 15th century, the clan still attached itself to powerful Macdonalds. In the early 17th century the last chief of the clan was executed as Colonsay was lost to the control of a Macdonald. Without a chief of their own to control their home lands the clan was considered a leaderless ” broken clan “. From this point on the Macfies followed the Macdonalds of Islay, though a branch of the clan was dispersed to lands controlled by Clan Cameron In the early 19th century Ewen Macphee became a notorious outlaw, ” revered and feared by locals and despised by the authorities “. Today the modern Clan Macfie is alive with nine associated clan societies located around the world. Donald MacKinnon, was born in 1839 on Colonsay. He was a Celtic scholar, the first elected Professor of Celtic languages, literature, history and antiquities at Edinburgh University, a chair he occupied from 1882 to the year of his death in 1914.

Old Photographs Of Isle Of Jura Inner Hebrides Scotland



Views:1|Rating:nan|View Time:2:41Minutes|Likes:0|Dislikes:0
Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Jura, Scottish Gaelic: Diùra, an island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, adjacent to and to the north east of Islay. The main settlement is the village of Craighouse on the east coast, which is its capital. Craighouse is home to the Jura Whisky Distillery, producing Isle of Jura single malt whisky. Craighouse was once served by a direct ferry from the mainland which berthed at Craighouse pier. This service was terminated some years ago, and access is now via an 8 miles single track road from Feolin on Jura’s south west coast, where there is a small vehicle ferry to the neighbouring island of Islay. However, since 2007 a passengers only ferry service to Craighouse has operated during the summer from the village of Tayvallich on the mainland. The island is dominated by three steep sided conical quartzite mountains on its western side called the Paps of Jura. The demise of the Lords of the Isles at the end of the fifteenth century was shortly followed in 1506 by the Treaty of Camas an Staca, which removed MacDonald rights on Jura and gave them to the Campbells. Despite this, the sixteenth century was a period of skirmishing between the warring clans: McDonald, Campbell, MacLean and others. Then in 1607 the Campbells finally bought the island from the MacDonalds. This was the beginning of some three hundred years during which the island was ruled and largely owned by eleven successive Campbell lairds. The north of the island, however, remained in MacLean hands until 1737, when it was sold to Donald MacNeil of Colonsay. Beginning in the later 18th century, long before the notorious Highland Clearances of the following century, there were several waves of emigration from Jura. In 1767, fifty people left for Canada. In his later life, George Orwell moved to Barnhill, on Jura, living there intermittently from 1946, while critically ill with tuberculosis, until his death in January 1950. He was known to the residents of Jura by his real name, Eric Blair. It was at Barnhill that Orwell finished Nineteen Eighty Four, during 1947 and 1948, he sent the final typescript to his publishers, Secker and Warburg, on 4 December 1948, and they published the book on 8 June 1949. Despite its isolation, Barnhill has in recent years become something of a shrine for his readers.

Amazing Caledonian Pine Forest – Photography in Scotland



Views:26893|Rating:4.99|View Time:12:31Minutes|Likes:1422|Dislikes:4
After a day of landscape photography in arctic like conditions, Chris Eyre-Walker joins me again as we venture into an undiscovered ancient Caledonian Pine Forest for some woodland photography. We started the day near Loch Maree but the conditions were poor and we were feeling a bit tired & uninspired but things really picked up in the afternoon. I picked out a spot on the map over lunch, we headed there in the rain, the rain the sleet and then the sleet turned to snow as we gained just a little bit of height on the mountainside.

The outing felt all too brief but I loved every minute of it. Chris enjoyed it too so it was great to see him embrace woodland photography in this stunning area of Scots Pines.

I finish off this episode with some behind the scenes footage of me printing some of my favourite photography from this fantastic day. I’ll talking more about processing and printing in a future video.

I’ll be running a workshop in Torridon this autumn so please sign up to my newsletter if you’re interested in joining me.

Using Light & Shade – Landscape Photography in Scotland



Views:17319|Rating:4.96|View Time:15:52Minutes|Likes:1137|Dislikes:10
I look back on my last two days of landscape photography from a recent trip to Torridon in the Wester Ross area of Scotland’s Highlands. I adore this area of Scotland – so much grandeur, variety and richness in the flora and fauna. Perhaps what I like the most is that it’s relatively quiet and a real joy to explore, discover and photograph in amazing locations which you may have to yourself. Scotland’s diversity and topography means that there is always something great to photograph, in all conditions.

There’s no point stating the obvious that light in photography is important but I make a point in this video of capturing a couple of photographs which make better use of varying qualities of light by combining it with background shade to better separate your subject(s).

As always, woodland photography or trees in general are the main theme as they sit within my portfolio, but the workshops would include photography around lochs, mountains, pine forests and the fantastic Scotland coastline.
