Edinburgh Castle on a crisp December afternoon. I love the silhouette the light creates and the cloud pattern gives the picture more depth.

Lucky Pennies at Clifford's Tower in York

Two pictures from a trip to York in July. The coins are at Clifford's Tower and the wee bird was quite happy to stand and pose for a picture.

Saint Mark's Basillica in Venice

Parthenon in Rome


Roman Forum

Cast of a body found at Pompeii
Padlocks on the gates of Juliet's House in Verona
After a wee hiatus due to the small matter of getting married I'm back up and running! Here are a few pictures that I took in Italy while we were there on honeymoon. It's a beautiful country - can't wait to back. We visited Venice, Verona Rome and Pompeii so here are some pictures from each location. Hope you enjoy! =) All of the places we visited are fascinating. I particularly liked seeing the thousands of padlocks at Juliet's House in Verona and in contrast the bodies at Pompeii are really quite eery but captivating.

Some pictures from the Twilight Photography course that I went on with my dad last night. It was so much fun and I learnt how to use my camera properly at night time. The middle picture is my first attempt at a light trail and I think it turned out alright! Just need a bit more practice!

A couple of pictures from a wee wander down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh during the Fringe.

Another couple of pictures from the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland when we visited in March. Such a beautiful part of the world I could while away many a happy hour there - depsite the fact that it's a busy place you can feel like you're the only people there. I can't wait to go back.

Two pictures of the same flowers but from slightly different perspectives and angles. Hanging from a beautiful building by York Minster. I like the brightness of the colours despite the fact that it was quite a dull day - just before we go drenched!

Sunlight through the top of a dovecot at Aberdour Castle taken on a visit last Tuesday. Loving the flare that appears and the way the sunlight hits the brickwork.

I like the contrasting colours in this picture - Autumn colours taken in June with beautiful detailling on the leaves thanks to the sun.

Yesterday I was experimenting with raindrops. I love the vibrant colours that come out when it rains.

Today I have mostly been experimenting and getting to know a new camera and these are a couple of the results. Hope you like them!!

The same picture using the focus differently. I really like both of them - taken on the Water of Leith walk way.

I took these two pictures on Sunday evening while enjoying a lovely walk along the canal from Fountain Bridge to Slateford whilst making my poor other half stop every thirty seconds to take another picture!

This picture is a personal favourite of mine. Taken as a panorama in three different shots, this is the Charles Bridge in Prague. The leaves in the foreground give it an extra dimension. Black and white done through photoshop.

These are two very contrsating pictures - one from the German Market when it was in Edinburgh at Christmas and the other on a memorial dedicated to those affected by Communisim which stands in Prague - I'll let you figure out which one is which!

They are a part of a collection of photoes that I have turned into cards - which can be used for anything - Christmas cards, notelets, thank you cards or invitations. I can turn any photos into cards - so if I've posted any that you like the look of get in touch! If you wants to purchase any please get in contact with me - leave a comment here or via my facebook page - I'd love to here from you.
I found this tiny bit of ivy in an old shed - a little bit of colour with the sun shing down on it. Love it!

I took these today at the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. On such a beautiful day the light and the colours are just astonishing. An excellent way to spend a day off!

Spring has sprung! Here are lots of flowers that make me happy to look at - bold and beautiful and happy.

A picture from Cambodia of pure, unadulterated joy at being able to play parachute games =)

A beautiful summer evening on the Water of Leith walkway in Edinburgh. I love the number of different shades of green from the leaves and the sun peeking through the trees.

This was part of the City Jungle in Edinburgh last summer when lots of people designed big cats and birds which went on display around the Botanic Gardens and then further round the city before being auctioned off to raise money for a wildlife conservation charity.They were all spectaular.

N.B None of the designs belong to me - all credit goes to the artists.

 I took this picture at Christmas time last year and what I love most about it is that you can see the reflection of the Big Wheel in the bauble. It's one of my favourite pictures that I've ever taken.

Wednesday, 14 March 2012

I took this one morning last week as the sun was rising and think the colours in the sky are beautiful.

This is the happiest of my happy places. It's the beach at Big Sand in Gairloch. Taken last March and I was really lucky to catch a break in the clouds and snatch a moment when the sun finally appeared!

A beautiful Spring evening at Cramond in Edinburgh.

I took this in January this year on the top of Calton Hill (you can Edinburgh Castle in the background) and I love the light on the ivy leaves.

I took this picture today and I love the effect that the sunshine created. Red can be a really hard color to photograph well but I really like the way that this turned out.

A picture I took today while at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. It was beautiful - blue sea and blue sky and glorious sunshine on the water.
