Rockcliffe

It’s my birthday today, so after a series of depressing monochrome images, here is a recent view of Rockcliffe on the Solway Coast of Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland, just to prove that the sun can shine on me and that I try to be cheerful just once in a while.

Silly old fart….

I like how working in monochrome encourages a more formal and studied approach to picture making. Balancing the tones and cropping to enhance the formal elements of placement and division is a very satisfying activity. The unruly diagonals always add a touch of tension, don’t you think?

Meadow Light

Scotland’s Dumfries and Galloway is a land of rolling and hummocky lowlands and small craggy hills, so here is a patch of rolling cow pasture. Many of the farms are moving to more intensive methods and although plenty of springtime lambs can be seen in the fields, more and more the cattle are reared in the growing number of large barns.

It ain’t natural I say…..
