    It's nearly SUMMER!!!

    It's not long until summer and summer is the most wonderful time of year. This has been a wretched bitter cold and generally foul winter so looking forward to the warm weather, nice early sunrises and late sunny evenings. Here's an assortment of images from this magical season. Loch Ba...

    Some local wintery scenes - all bin rescues

    Fair few pulled from the bin here... Initially binned due to the ripples. One from Feb 2017 _DSC0084 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Binned as well but rescued for 2020 _DSC3119 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Binned due to the lack of light...but...seems a bit harsh given how sparse 2020's...

    Lochan na Stainge

    Three from September Variety of crops and focal lengths here using the legendary Sigma ART 35 and 50mm Fog proved a bitch and it didn't shift until 3 hours or so after sunrise. Shame as I reckon the light is a shade harsh and a little flat. Had the mist cleared an hour or so earlier these...

    Buachaille Etive Mor

    Three from a delightful summers evening when the temperature was at least in double digits. My camera will not leave it's bag now until May. I arrived nice and early - maybe it was a tad flat but far too good to ignore _DSC2300 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Then it got properly nice _DSC2309...

    THAT mountain and waterfall in Glencoe

    Not feeling the love for Autumn at the moment and missing the summer greens already - I know that's not a common sentiment with other landscapers but it is certainly mine. Not enjoying the cold and wind at all. Here's some from August just been. No sunlight really which was a crying shame but...

    A lovely June's evening (followed by a night in the car) then morning in Glencoe

    1. Faded light but a jolly nice hot summers evening to be out _DSC3692 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr 2. A quick nap in the car then Lochan na Fola first thing. Sadly it was a bit too cloudy for the strong light to come though and the early morning light was very diffused. _DSC2078 by Stephen...

    June in Glencoe

    It's finally almost June and summer is here. Sadly I cannot partake in the excellence that is on offer at the moment so will post some highlights from what is one of my favourite months in the entire year. The Torren Lochan _DSC1726 - Version 3 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr The Famous Falls...

    Buachaille Etive Mor - a very nice sunrise

    This winter I've spent a lot of time reprocessing old shots, finding new crops and especially with Covid19 it seems wise to continue on this vein as opposed to head out and be selfish. Some nice reflections on the Coupall River just up stream from the famous falls _DSC6488 by Stephen Taylor...

    So I am a little bit obsessed with Buachaille Etive Mor

    doesn't appeal quite so much as it once did. May 2017 Here's a 5x4 - I'd have liked 4x3 but when trying to crop I couldn't get the frame edges right with the mountain centered well enough but it's fine on a 5x4. The original one was 2:1 and looks great but that sky seems to good to lose and...

    Two from last Tuesday in Glencoe

    What a summer this has been. It's either been totally grey, or totally blue skies with not much inbetween. Here are two from Tuesday in Glencoe. There was too much cloud, and haze around to really get the light onto the mountain (Meall a'bhuiridh). The reflections though were very nice...

    Some local images (Glencoe) from the last couple of weeks

    Picked a very still day for these and even then I needed a few exposures to get a complete static set of grasses (on the embankment). I used a long exposure to smooth out any slight ripples in the river so only the calmest of moments gave me the chance to get everything (and I mean everything )...

    Some recents from Glencoe

    I spent a most wonderful Sunday evening (between rain showers and gusts of wind at the Torren Lochan). There were some moments where the water was not still due to rain and horrible wind but the rain had the most welcome effect of clearing the air so the clarity was just wonderful after the...

    Sunrise on Lochan na Stainge

    _DSC4786 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr I grabbed this on a morning workshop last week. The best reflections and light were down on Rannoch Moor. I couldn't resist guiding the client to this spot at the edge of Lochan na Stainge and once they were set up taking a few of my own with the light...

    Three from this week in Glencoe

    Finally summer is here. It's no secret it's my favourite time of year so it was high time I headed out to enjoy the fine weather. It's still a little brown on the Moors so I chose compositions around this. First up is a lovely little fall on the River Coe - very little light about but the sky...

    Glencoe Sunrise - One from a recent workshop

    I grabbed these on a recent workshop last week. Once I got my client comfortable and ready for what was one of the best mornings I ever saw I couldn't resist a few shots and the client wanted a few demonstration shots on how I work. Whilst I don't shoot time lapses (I really should) I do like...

    Two local sunrises

    Both edits from this time last year (last March was brilliant, this one has been by all accounts hopeless). Cropped differently - this is a 5x4 bringing in just a bit more skye (see what I did there) _DSC2189 - Version 3 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr I originally did this as a square -...

    Want Pointers Visit to Glencoe & Skye

    Hi all I made the trip from London --> Scotland last week for a couple of days. This was my first dedicated trip for photography since picking up a camera a few months ago, so I'm still learning.

    Isle of Skye in march - advice

    Lacking landscape inspiration in London has led me to book 6 days in the Highlands & Isle of Skye in early March. I know weather is a game of chance but are there any 'must-have' pictures I'm missing from the list below? (bearing in mind I'm new to photography and have absolutely no shame in...

    The Torren Lochan

    It's no secret I despise this time of year and find precious little to motivate me through the winter months. I decided to reprocess some shots from the Torren Lochan from July 2017. My tastes have changed a little since then so I thought I'd give the RAW files a fresh look. This was probably...

    Glencoe wintery scenes

    Technically this is Autumn but it was cold enough to be winter...a square crop of one from earlier this year _DSC3877 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr I've shown this scene as a 2:1 countless times, however I came across an old card and found one I took at a slightly longer FL which I probably did...

    Autumn so far in Glencoe

    Just a quick selection from last monday - for those who know me off the forum I'm still working on the France/Spain pictures from last month but here's last Mondays efforts. Imagination nill but with the rainfall at least the waterfall has some movement in it. _DSC3877 (1) by Stephen Taylor...

    Summer in Glencoe - an assortment of images

    Been putting off working on this shot for a while - it's not my best of the summer from there. The light never really came through and this glimmer the only light of the day - shame really as the sky was epic and had it come through it would have been one of the all time great mornings...

    Glencoe Winter B&Ws

    Lacking in imagination but an IBS attack on the journey up meant finding a toilet quickly which happened to be at the Ski Center. After dropping my guts I stopped here first as it was looking quite tasty all covered in the white stuff. _DSC1609 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Made my way round to...

    Snow in Glencoe

    Was up there a couple of weeks back. I couldn't make it up the Saturday when the sunrise was really colourful but hoped for the same on the Sunday. It wasn't to be. At least it gave me a chance to try my new 20mm F1.8 out. Prefer it already to the 16-35 which I may well end up selling. I...
