Welcome to the news section which I will update regularly with what's going on in my photography life.

Front Cover of January 2012 Outdoor Photography

Article text
Rannoch Moor, Glencoe
I was really chuffed to have one of my images used on the front cover of January's Outdoor Photography magazine. Inside the magazine I had a 2 page article on the image which was of a dead Scots Pine on Rannoch Moor. The image was taken last January I photographed the scene using a 10 stop Neutral Density filter which drastically reduces the amount of light entering the lens. To compensate you have to have the shutter open for much longer; in this case around 60 seconds which gives the sense of movement you can see here in the clouds.
