The Mull of Kintyre truly inspired Paul McCartney to write a song about this beautiful part of Scotland.It also inspired Dennis Hardley to find this view at sunset which looks towards the Mull of Kintyre and the coast of Northern Ireland.Great for grazing,Great for Geologists,and great for photographers.
It was late in the afternoon when I took this picture of a group of Wind Turbines at Tangy on the Kin tyre Peninsula when the sky turned a gentle pink from the upturned sun which had disappeared under the clouds.
Yesterday Dennis set out for Kintyre to get pictures of a wind farm at Tangymill,these of all subjects need some thought and creativity.I stayed until dusk and took this shot with a truly magnificent pink afterglow in the sky.

This is another of the images taken last sunday at Tralee -bay holiday park this time using a very wide lense and back-lit reeds on the lochan in this well kept holiday park.When taking autumn shots in particular,shooting against the sun (back lighting) gives a great effect which allows the light to penetrate through the leaves.
Yesterday (sunday) I went over to look out some shots at Tralee Bay holiday park which belongs to another of our clients. I am very glad I made the effort as the conditions were perfect for some nice images depicting Autumn Tranquility.This was taken with a Nikon D3X with a f2.8 14-24 wide angle lense www.scotphoto.com and www.tralee.com
Sunday was a really nice day over on the west of scotland, another of our clients are "Tralee bay holiday park" so I went over there and captured some autumn scenes around the still waters of a picturesque Lochan which is overlooked by Log Cabins.

This is one of the finest houses I have photographed for a wee while,its coming on the market soon and situated overlooking Oban bay. I really enjoyed photographing this place,here is the picture taken just inside the front door looking into the magnificent hall.
Dennis was asked by Savills recently to photograph this beautiful property in Oban.Its called the Drury and overlooks oban bay from its dominating position.I spent two days in this house and was most impressed by its size and the quality of the internal fittings, ie (en suites etc).
here is the view from the terraced garden.
Took this shot last week in Lytham St Annes depicting the famous windmill at dusk with a magenta sky.This is a lovely stretch of coastline which runs from Lytham to St Annes and onto Blackpool and fleetwood.I also have my pictures in a lovely gallery called "Oscars" in Lytham.
