The month of May was a really busy time for me from both a commercial and landscape point of view. I had the good fortune to combine both during a 15 day commercial project in Scotland by including a 5 day tour around the Highlands and Isle of Skye.
As expected, the Scottish weather threw everything at us during those 5 days. Sun, sleet, hailstones, snow and buckets of rain, all in a never-ending, fast changing shuffle that often made the going pretty tough. And this was May!! Looking back, I wouldn't have had it any other way. The changeable weather has an enormous impact on the breath-taking landscape that Scotland is so famous for. The evolving light and skies create fleeting and spectacular moments that are easily missed but soon replaced with another equally enchanting one. Hanging around for a few extra moments will often afford new and unexpected opportunities. Simply wonderful!
Some of the locations I photographed at include Loch Sunart, Ranoch Moor, Loch Oich, River Coe, Ballachulish, Applecross Pass, Three Sisters Valley, Loch Alsh as well as the Isle Of Skye.
There is so much landscape to photograph in Scotland that my 5 days barely allowed me the opportunity to scratch the surface. I truly envy the local landscape photographers who are afforded the possibility to regularly shoot in this environment. The urge to go back and work purely on landscapes for a month is beckoning. Who knows, maybe the opportunity will present itself soon.
What follows is some new work consisting of a short series of Scottish Landscapes. High resolution versions of each photograph can also be seen within their respective Portfolio Gallery or currently in a slide-show on my New Projects page. Some are also available to purchase.

As always, thank you for taking the time to read my blog and view my photographs. I sincerely hope that you enjoy viewing them as much as I did making them.
