CAPTURING BREATHTAKING BEAUTY IN CAIRNGORM NATIONAL PARK

CAIRNGORM SPRING

DEEP IN THAW

This early morning shot catches the low lying mist, from a cold night on Loch Pityoulish, burning off in the warming sun.

PINE FOR NATURE

This view of the loch from the shady woodland was hard to capture due to the high dynamic range between the low-light wood and the brightly lit landscape. This shot is a composite of three varying exposures.

SERIOUS REFLECTION

The Cairngorms, or Am Monadh Ruadh, consists of a large, cold, and snowy plateau, with many of Scotland's highest peaks. The stillness of the scene belies a harsh landscape which can test the mettle of walkers and climbers.

Wide-angle landscapes are a favourite creative option and in this instance provided a technique to capture more of the scene. The semi-submerged stones in the foreground add interest and draw the eye toward the horizon.
