Hello everyone and welcome to my new website and indeed to my first blog post. The old website had its day and was long overdue an update to say the least , in the end up decided just to go full hog for complete new site, with all new image’s largely taken over the past 2 years and hopefully improved the photo tour information side of things also. Instead of having the Scottish Wild Images site and my own website have now incorporated it all in to this one . Will not make any rash promises but fully intend to keep the blog updated reasonable well , at least one a month or more depending if got anything of interest that crops up. While on the topic of websites a big thank you to Neil at Dancing Dog for all his work and ideas.
Just a little update on what been going on and what is coming . Mainly been busy with photography tours which continue to be popular, so will strive to keep the ever popular Red Squirrels, Crested tits etc going along as well as the new Red Deer day which you can see more about on the photo tour page. Not long till Black grouse lek either , weekends all full up but availability still ok mid week if anyone interested. And of course the new Osprey diving pond at Rothiemurchus is very exciting for the forthcoming summer so will keep you up to date with that. As for my own pictures managed to get some bits and bobs but difficult to get really stuck into anything as clients photo tours take priority at the moment. Have included a couple of most recent shots here, both taken when out on photo tours with folks last week when weather was so bad would not normally have gone out and just shows what you can still get despite the weather sometimes.
Have just finished Judging the first round of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards, quite a task with around 2500 entries this year. I have to say some top images in there this year and will be a very hard task indeed to pick the winning shots in the next stage.
