Milky Way over the Wee BoochleTwo shot composite image of the Milky Way over Buachaille Etive Beag, Glencoe.
NutsFor 15 minutes about 0600 on two or three days each year this happens in Finnich Gorge. Too early in the year and the sun is not high enough, too late and it has moved round out of view. The photo was taken standing knee deep in the freezing water. Am I nuts?
The Fiddler's SunriseSunrise over the mountains of Assynt from Sgurr an Fhidhleir (the Fiddler). I wild camped on the peak of the Fiddler to catch dawn over the North West Highlands. I didn't get much sleep as the tent was battered by 40mph winds, gusting to 60mph, but it was worth it.
The Praying Hands of MaryFionn's Rock, Glenn Dà-Eigg or by its alternative name, 'The Praying Hands of Mary'. The rock was said to have been split by Fingal's arrow in the 5th Century.
SunriseI placed myself in shot for this sunrise from Buachaille Etive Beag in Glencoe. Sometimes there is a debate whether adding a person to a shot give a sense of scale or a focal point.
Sunrise from the Wee BoochleI raced up the mountain to catch the dawn over the Highlands. Buachaille Etive Mor is the mountain to the right, with Beinn a'Chrulaiste centre and Rannoch Moor in the distance.
South from Cul MorThe view south from Cul Mor in Assynt in the North West Highlands as a rain storm blows over Stac Pollaidh. Cul Beag is the mountain the the left with the pointed peak of the Fiddler in the distance.
Driftwood RebellionI visited the Glenfinnan Monument at Loch Shiel in the West Highland which commemorates the rebellion of Bonnie Prince Charle in 1745, when I noticed this driftwood sitting in the loch providing a perfect focal point for the photograph.
An StòrAn Stòr (The Storr) on The Isle of Skye. I climbed to the cliffs behind the Old Man of Storr (centre) to capture the morning sun as it emerged over the top of the rock pinnacle. The cliff face is unstable with a lot of rock falls (see in photo) as a result of the Trotternich Landslip - an ancient landslide.
Moon over Eilean Donan CastleThe Moon in the Belt of Venus (anti-twilight arch) over Eilean Donan Castle on Loch Duich.
The Storr & Loch LeathanThe view of The Storr across Loch Leathan on The Isle of Skye, the small boats added some interest to the photo.

The Peak of DarknessStob Dubh - the dark peak of Buachaille Etive Beag, Glencoe. I love the way the first light of the sun picks out the ripples in the snow.
The Dark Night RisesStob Dubh (the Dark Peak) of Buachaille Etive Mor, Glencoe, as the first light of sunrise strikes the summit. Shot from Stob Coire Raineach. I climb in the dark to capture sights like this, makes the world feel special.
The Black BeltThe Belt of Venus above Stob Dubh (the black peak) of Buachaille Etive Beag, Glencoe. I climbed the mountain in the dark before dawn to catch sunrise over the Highlands. It was a spectacular morning.
