    It's nearly SUMMER!!!

    It's not long until summer and summer is the most wonderful time of year. This has been a wretched bitter cold and generally foul winter so looking forward to the warm weather, nice early sunrises and late sunny evenings. Here's an assortment of images from this magical season. Loch Ba...

    Some local wintery scenes - all bin rescues

    Fair few pulled from the bin here... Initially binned due to the ripples. One from Feb 2017 _DSC0084 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Binned as well but rescued for 2020 _DSC3119 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Binned due to the lack of light...but...seems a bit harsh given how sparse 2020's...

    Lochan na Stainge

    Three from September Variety of crops and focal lengths here using the legendary Sigma ART 35 and 50mm Fog proved a bitch and it didn't shift until 3 hours or so after sunrise. Shame as I reckon the light is a shade harsh and a little flat. Had the mist cleared an hour or so earlier these...

    A lovely June's evening (followed by a night in the car) then morning in Glencoe

    1. Faded light but a jolly nice hot summers evening to be out _DSC3692 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr 2. A quick nap in the car then Lochan na Fola first thing. Sadly it was a bit too cloudy for the strong light to come though and the early morning light was very diffused. _DSC2078 by Stephen...

    June in Glencoe

    It's finally almost June and summer is here. Sadly I cannot partake in the excellence that is on offer at the moment so will post some highlights from what is one of my favourite months in the entire year. The Torren Lochan _DSC1726 - Version 3 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr The Famous Falls...

    Two from last Tuesday in Glencoe

    What a summer this has been. It's either been totally grey, or totally blue skies with not much inbetween. Here are two from Tuesday in Glencoe. There was too much cloud, and haze around to really get the light onto the mountain (Meall a'bhuiridh). The reflections though were very nice...

    Sunrise on Lochan na Stainge

    _DSC4786 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr I grabbed this on a morning workshop last week. The best reflections and light were down on Rannoch Moor. I couldn't resist guiding the client to this spot at the edge of Lochan na Stainge and once they were set up taking a few of my own with the light...

    Summer in Glencoe - an assortment of images

    Been putting off working on this shot for a while - it's not my best of the summer from there. The light never really came through and this glimmer the only light of the day - shame really as the sky was epic and had it come through it would have been one of the all time great mornings...

    Glencoe Winter 2017

    A while back I posted a series of B&W renditions of my trip(s) to Glencoe. Here are the colour ones Black Rock Cottage _DSC1609_Rendition 1 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Frozen Falls - I hadn't intended on taking this picture but when I saw the frozen falls I new I had too. It's not the...

    Glencoe Winter B&Ws

    Lacking in imagination but an IBS attack on the journey up meant finding a toilet quickly which happened to be at the Ski Center. After dropping my guts I stopped here first as it was looking quite tasty all covered in the white stuff. _DSC1609 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Made my way round to...

    Two from Glencoe

    Couple from Wednesday last week. Not my best but still good fun to be out and about in the sun with a camera during my favourite time of the year. The first is from the Torren Lochan and a different angle to the normal one I do. It's good to mix it up a bit and this is really a trial run for...

    Rannoch Moor

    I had a really nice morning on Rannoch Moor last Thursday. Lovely clear reflections and it was nice and warm. This has to be my favourite time of year, despite the midges. 1st light _DSC1033 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr All light _DSC1081 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr There was quite a lot...

    Rannoch Moor, wide crops

    Trees on Loch Ba, sundown last night on Rannoch Moor

    _DSC0576 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr I took a punt on there being a fairly good chance of a colourful sunset last night. It wasn't bad and I managed to get reflections and the colours at the same time. 5 mins either side of this and it was choppy and the colour wasn't there. This spot is...

    Rannoch Moor: reflections and sunrise colours

    As you all know I live near here and am up here shooting a lot. This Saturday I decided to go and visit. I rarely head out over the weekends as I prefer to shoot alone and not encounter large groups of people, something, despite the popularity of the area is quite easy to achieve. It wasn't...

    Rannoch Moor this AM

    This morning I went in search of reflections. Sadly it wasn't quite mill pond still but it wasn't bad. To make it better the snow is back. Dawn was lovely and vibrant but unfortunately misty. I much prefer cleared conditions. _DSC0315 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr _DSC0325 by Stephen Taylor...

    Loch Ba - twilight reflections

    First time I've been in the Rannoch Moor/Glencoe area this year. First time out with the D810. I really liked the D800 and I am pretty pleased with this one too. Not sure on crops. The first I kept at 3:2 as the colours seemed too good in the sky to remove, but I am aware there is a lot of...

    Glencoe - some pastel shades

    I posted some very similar shots back in november but these are subtly different in tones and light as they were taken a few minutes apart. I am in Glencoe later today and tomorrow. The Buachaille _DSC4018 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Loch Ba _DSC4147 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr

    Rannoch Moor - Winter Magic

    Took these three in Feb 2015. Went back over them tonight to see if I could improve them at all. Tried a few different crops. Someone from another forum mentioned something very interesting about 4x5 being their favourite aspect. I recall composing it in portrait but this crop I think works...

    Glencoe and Rannoch Moor, Finally some snow

    After the disaster which was Sunday/Monday with the failed memory card I decided to get back out there with a fresh memory card on Wednesday/Thursday to see what I could come up with. Dawn at the Buachaille: _DSC4013 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr First light was not disappointing but snow all...

    Frozen Rannoch Moor

    Two images from Loch Ba on Rannoch Moor yesterday. All of Sundays images are lost due to a faulty memory card but luckily I had the long lens on the other body and took these on the way back from the Buachaille Yesterday (also lost these too). Went with a cinematic 2.85:1 letter box crop with...

    Rannoch Moor on Tuesday morning

    Just got round to working this and some other stuff I need to do. Went with an unsual aspect ratio for this 16x10. 16x9 just made it too cramped. I was happy with it in the view finder but on the big screen I felt I had too much sky above the mountains. _DSC3727 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr...

    As per the last thread I've been spending some time reprocessing old images. Its brought about some minor improvements and rectified a few technical flaws I found. Recropped a few as time moved on the composition jarred me a little. I hope you enjoy the series as much as I enjoyed reliving the...

    Autumn in Scotland

    I went outside to clean my car this morning and couldn't believe the number of leaves that are coming off the trees already. Combined with some low morning mists on a workshop I led last week it seems like the year is turning already. Autumn is a magical season here in Scotland and I thought I'd...
