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.

Petra, Jordan

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.

Scots Magazine Cover

Readers of the Scots Magazine can see a big version of one of my photos of Scotland’s Rannoch Moor on the cover of the June issue available now.

And for anyone interested in seeing more of my pictures from one of my favourite countries to photograph, check out this gallery of images from Scotland. And here’s a second one if you can’t get enough!

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.

Gallery of India Photos Posted

With this post, I would like to present you with a brand new gallery of photos, this time from India. Most of them come from Rajasthan whose oversized hill forts tower over bustling cities that overwhelm the senses. A few, like the one below, come from just outside the province, in or near Agra.

Below is, of course, the Taj Mahal as viewed at sundown from across the Yamuna river.
