When I enter a competition, I’m quite low key about it, as I never win, so no point flagging up the fact you entered, when you ultimately don’t win.  Whilst I haven’t “won”, I have been commended (or is that condemned?) with my photograph “Quadrathon”  in this year’s Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year in the Seascapes category.  I wouldn’t say it was my favourite image that I submitted and looking back on it I would have done something about the dark patch in the middle foreground – but I’ll take recognition where I get it.  On the plus side, I still don’t need to update my biography 🙂

Away from the lovely sandy beaches at Luskentyre on Harris in the Outer Hebrides, at the end of the road, beyond the beach there lies a fort, a wheel house, a blackhouse and this unusual rock arrangement. As ever with what I think had been the 3rd wettest and the 4th dullest July on record for the Outer Hebrides I err’d towards using a long exposure to create a little bit of drama in the skies.

You can see more of my landscape photography from the Outer Hebrides here.

I’ve included a gallery of the other entries I submitted to the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.

If you’re interested in hearing more from me, you can sign up to (very!) occasional newsletters  from me and follow me on over on Facebook.
