Photos in the 2016 Scottish Field Calendars

2016 approaches and you’re going to to need some way to remind yourself not to scribble the wrong date on your cheques (if you still write cheques). What better way to do it than with some lovely images from Scotland?

A few of my photos are featured in two of the Scottish Field Calendars for 2016 including my image of Dunvegan Castle on the cover of the mini version of the calendar. You can preview/buy the mini calendar here and the regular one here. Below, you’ll find the images they’ve used.

And there are plenty more of my images of Scotland here and here.

Jordan Gallery Posted

Another long-overdue collection of images is finally live on my site. Please take a moment to browse my photos of Jordan here.

Though a not insubstantial time has passed since my visit, the memories are as vivid as could be. Here’s just a quick sample: Hiking in Petra, hitchhiking with some random moustached man whose car interior was totally and completely wrapped in cling film and who smelled like candy, floating in the Dead Sea, leaping from ledges into sand dunes and racing down them like a kid, getting pelted in the back with a stone by some seven year old girl (wtf!), getting chased by camels, balancing precariously on giant natural arches, walking in Moses’ footsteps, exploring medieval castles and forts, having an ibex steal a potato from us, eating some pretty great food, listening to the haunting, synchronised call to prayer alone on a hilltop beneath a roman ruin in Amman, rescuing a donkey from a cliff, etc..

There are plenty more memories to be shared in photo form, so please visit the gallery.

Istanbul Gallery Posted

I’ve just posted a new gallery of images. These come from Istanbul, Turkey.

These photos are from my second time visiting the city. During my first trip there, a trip filled with wonderful chance encounters, spectacular sights, delicious food, and a distinct sense of magic, I knew I would go back. Just thinking about it makes me want to visit again.

Riga Photos in Skylife Magazine

Anyone travelling on Turkish Airlines this month will see a few my photos from Riga printed in Skylife Magazine, the airline’s inflight magazine. And for those of us not fortunate to be travelling anywhere with them right now, there’s also the option of viewing the Riga notes article online.

And if you’re craving more images from that part of the world, hop on over to my gallery of photos from the Baltics or go even more in depth and check out the images from Riga in my archive.

As a bonus, here’s a shot of the House of Blackheads in Old Riga.
