Next week I will be returning to Dunfermline in Fife. The historic town dating from the C11th, where the remains of King Robert the Bruce lie. I lived there from the ages of 8 to 11 years – some 40+ years ago!! I wonder how much of the town I will remember, ‘The Glen’, the Abbey,…

The zoo is a fantastic resource…

Excitement is building up in the Scottish Referendum Vote on Independence. As a Scot living in England I have no vote, but I am confident that Scotland’s residents will make the right decision. The vote is less than 2 weeks away, and I am not sure whether this will be my first International Tour!! Better…

Craig, one of the five on my Summer Workshop, brought along his Google Glasses to take some images. He snapped some amazing results. Others we saw in the Lake District were using their iPads to take pictures. Photography is certainly changing. For the better? You can decide. But if these new platforms bring more people…

Just completed my 6 day Summer Photography Workshop at Higham Hall in the Lake District. We had some glorious weather as six of us visited ancient standing stones, historic ports, stunning lakes and mountain scenery. The highlight of our outings was the Ennerdale Show, a typical Cumbrian agricultural gathering for locals, set in a large…
