Daffodils growing during the months of spring are a refreshing sight after a harsh winter. These were a few I had in a vase on my table. When they did eventually expire I decided to capture some shots of them against a matte black background with the aid of two remote speedlights… some interesting and rather abstract results.
Whilst staying in a small remote cottage on the isle of Skye in early march we were greeted with a rare glimpse of a clear night full of stars. Apparently the illusive northern lights were visible the night before we arrived. Although they refused to make an appearance whilst we were staying on the Island this rare view of the night sky was still as impressive as ever. I was even able to capture trails of passing satellites in some of the long exposures.
Whilst waiting for the ferry back from Askaig on Islay I had a brief walk around the fishing port. There’s something I really love about the colours and textures you can find whilst walking amongst the old boats, ropes and fishing nets. Islay is really an amazing place. I’ll certainly be heading back there soon.
