Last month I took a trip up to Scotland with the family - visiting Fort William, Glenfinnan and the 'Harry Potter' train. There was a little bit of sheep racing for charity going on in Fort William, a little bit of whisky tasting at the Ben Nevis Distillery. I'd highly recommend the train ride from Fort William up to Malaig. The scenery is stunning and, for the Harry Potter fans, it crosses the viaduct from The Chamber of Secrets as well as passing Dumbledore's island (spoiler-free!). I have a huge amount of respect for landscape photographers (I don't claim that to be my speciality) and the landscape shots are more 'snaps' caught along the way - candid landscape if you will! I think I'm particularly in love with ferns this summer though - maybe I'll specialise in them...
There are moments nearer the end of this mini-film when its clear that I either need to go to the gym and lift weights or remember to take correct stabilising equipment out with me! As muscular arms wouldn't really suit my 5'1" frame, I think it'll have to be the equipment in future, especially for when the wind picks up. I thought I'd share this anyway as the day was just beautiful!
Having been out shooting a Duke of Edinburgh group for UCC's Success Magazine (see http://bit.ly/1wwLChY for a couple of pics from the day, the magazine will be out next week) I took the opportunity to spend a little more time out that way with my Mum. We walked around Elterwater and made our customary stop at Chester by the River. I'd recommend the route to anyone - one of my favourites!! I feel I might need to take my camera again in the autumn and get another few shoots and a bit more footage. A less busy day at Chesters would mean less wobble on the decking too! Though Chesters always seems to be busy - not a surprise there!
The Lake District, Elterwater and the Langdales in particular, are some of the most beautiful places to be in all of England!
This Spring I had the pleasure of working with Eden Boutique again. All involved, from the learners and their models to the tutors, brought it all together to make some amazing shots. I'm currently finishing off the mini-slideshow for the Newton Rigg end of term presentation day so it seemed like a good time to post some images! So here's a small selection (couldn't possibly post them all!)...
And I honestly couldn't choose which ones of these to put up so a mini-album for the Breakfast at Tiffany's style. What a book, film and look.
