It was announced today that in Scotland, from the 28th of May, we will be able to hill walk locally (with a roughly 5 mile radius). Fortunately for us, this includes quite a few beautiful mountain tops and although we have yet to get advice from local mountain rescue, even if they advise to play it safe there are enough friendly locations within five miles to keep us busy for a lifetime.

So it’s back to a certain sense of normality in terms of landscape photography, although it will be very odd not to have masses of tourists in Glencoe during a period that is usually the start of the high season.

I’ll be polishing a few lenses and defrosting a bit of film in readiness for a day out and am looking forward to starting a review of a new photography purchase as well - yet another camera bag! In this case, it’s the new Shimoda that I’ll be putting through its paces. Unfortunately, this will mean trying to fit in some rainy day walks - shouldn’t be a problem around here!

I hope all of our readers are keeping well at the moment and hope lockdown eases for you (in a safe way) as soon as possible.

End Frame: ‘High Light’ by Colin Prior

What is striking is his capability to capture the authentic spirit of place, and by doing so, his place within that place. He offers some of the most natural interpretations of a landscape more

The Sublime Landscape

At its best, sublime landscape photography reminds us of the (literally) awesome power, and beauty, of nature. more

Lockdown Project

A few weeks ago, during one of our lockdown podcasts, I challenged Joe Cornish and David Ward to take a few photographs as a 'mini lockdown project'. more

Frederic Demeuse

I felt an irrepressible call for this mythical forest, which resounded in me as the last refuge of a certain nature which no longer exists elsewhere. more

The Way We Were

Over-walked paths are growing with fresh wildflowers, ferns trampled in river gorges are bursting upwards towards the light; joyful in their isolation. more

It’s Up To You What You See

Abstract art can be the most frustrating of art forms, but it can also be the most rewarding. There is a simple reason for this I think: the responsibility for finding ‘meaning’ in an image is thrown entirely on to the viewer. more

Love Dandelions

Could we use our creativity and skill, our dedication and commitment, to raise the profile of specific issues and/or might we link in with the scientists from Wildlife Trusts, conservation bodies and local universities? more

The Value of Things

I am trying to say something about fragility and vulnerability too. Not just my own, but that of the landscape itself, which is threatened by development and habitat destruction, and all the more so because most assume there is nothing of value here. more

There & Back Again!

The fact was I had lost the mojo and the enthusiasm. It had become an automated process. There were few decent ones I could have printed, which is my litmus test for a good image. more
