"Everything in art is but a copy of nature" - Walter Scott

Photgraphy, fishing, camping, my family(of course), walking , climbing and a wee bit of biking keep me busy in my spare time. I'm fortunate to live in the Scottish Highlands, by Loch Ness, which I pass every weekday to and from work. I'm an amateur photographer who has no idea what actually makes a great picture. But I do know what I like, and when I catch it, I'll share it here. All constructive commments welcomed, and, thanks for visiting.

Some of my favourites so far;

    "The very free style of Russell's photography appeals to me.
    He is able to catch a fleeting moment that most of us wouldn't even notice in the busy-ness of our lives.
    He takes that moment and delivers to us a memorable, creative and satisfying image. I never tire of viewing his magnificent photo stream."
