Happy New Year!
January 5, 2010
Happy New Year to you all and welcome to my first post of 2010.
I hope you all had a great Christmas.
For me 2009 was quite a year, I finally managed to get a job in Inverness which I started at the end of November which meant I could finally join my wife who had been working up there since February. 2009 also saw me return to using film again with medium format gear.Â A couple of friends who shoot film kindly scanned some of the images for me so I could share the results with you all and make some prints. Due to circumstances I wasn’t able to get to many of the locations I’d planned to visit forÂ photos which meant I wasn’t in a position to produce a 2010 Calendar. Now that I’m living and working in the Highlands things are looking good for the 2010.
I am currently intending to continue to shoot both film and digital although currently the emphasis is going to be on digital as my film camera is needing repaired.
I’m determined that there will be a 2011 calendar and was really disappointed to not be able to produce one for 2010. I’ve got a number of images for the next calendar already and with a bit of luck I’ll get the rest before June in order to have the calendar ready and printed for the Autumn. I think I know which charity I’m going to support, the major hurdle is going to be getting the funding to get the calendar printed, unfortunately its not cheap to print. I’ve been lucky the last few years, hopefully this will continue.
Over the coming months I plan to try and explore the Highlands more and hopefully get images of places I’ve not been to or photographed before. Keep an eye on the gallery for new images.
Back to the present and the snow that we’ve been having. Despite the disruption that it causes, the snow has been absolutely beautiful and I was able to get out between Christmas and Hogmany for some photos. Its been bitterly cold up here but I managed to get some shots out on Dava Moor (between Granton and Forres), Cairngorm and Loch Morlich where temperatures were down at -12 deg c. The picture at the top of this post was the last shot of the day at Loch Morlich. The snow looks like it’s going to continue for a while yet and with a bit of luck I’ll manage to get out for some more photos.
Have you been out to get photos of the snow? What are you planning for the coming year?
In the meantime I’ve posted a few more images of the snow.
