    Firstly, thank you for liking my latest picture of M42, when I say latest I mean latest out of 2. I’m really exploring an old interest in Astronomy by expanding my current photography interest. I’ve viewed your gallery and I must say, you have fantastic pictures. Love the asbstracts and the macros. I’m trying to get my dad into macros too. I envy the location you are in, I bet the night skies in your neck of the woods are truly stunning.

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. I’m just getting into Astro-photography/Night-photography so I’m scouring about looking for inspiration, I’ll keep an eye on your blog for future posts. Thanks for the comment on my images, Long Exposure and HDR seem to be my favourite genre but been branching out with the macros and abstract, but need to do more of them. My macro’s/close-up’s were done with a kit lens and a macro adapter on the ends, fantastic piece of kit and highly recommended a a quarter of the price compared to a specialized macro lens. To be honest the skies where I live are rarely clear, we get a lot of rain in the West Coast of Scotland but we are only a short drive from the coast and light pollution which is great for the night photography which I’m going to concentrate on over the next few months and I think a new lens is required 🙂

  2. Amazing photo’s James, looking at them have made me feel so homesick. Hopefully one day soon I’ll be back to visit my relatives in Campbeltown. Your picture of Dulintober pier, reminded me of when I was a wee boy jumping into the water from it. Roy.

  3. Hi again James. that picture of Davaar Island is absolutely stunning. You must have been up really early to capture that one. I live in Llanelli, which is in South Wales and some of the locations around here are stunning. The Gower is probably the most famous area around here. This area reminds me Argyleshire, surrounded by sea and hills. You would probably like it, it has so much outstanding natural beauty. I am into photography as well, no where near your standard. Most of the photo’s I take are of my dog Ziva, she’s a spoilt labrador, the horses that are in the fields close to where I live, I also take some pictures of the surroundings, but most of my pictures are of bands I go to see. My passion is rock music. Not all of my pictures come out that well, being that most of the venues are dark with flashing lights. Seeing your pictures have pushed me now to go and photo this beautiful area I live in. Take care James, keep taking these stunning photo’s. PS give my love to your mum when you see her next. We had many a laugh in the old days. Roy.

    1. Hi Roy,

      Thanks for the comment, wasn’t up that early to be honest as the sunrises are fairly late just now! Wales has some stunning scenery, I spent a few months down there whilst in the military in the Brecon Beacons and other hills, you should maybe look at editing your shots as the camera only captures what it thinks it sees and it’s not what we see, or what we want the image to look like! Photographing a rock concert could probably be one of the hardest things to do, especially from the crowds position as you would be shooting straight into the lights, nightmare, that’s why the press get their own area, can’t really give you any tips on that that except get a dslr that has good high ISO performance and a fast zoom lens 70-200 or 70-300 f2.8 and perhaps a polarizer filter to reduce glare. I’ll pass on your regards to my mum.
