Scotland's landscape leaves a lasting impression. This small Celtic Kingdom, toughened by its turbulent past, fashioned by centuries of fights and feuds, is described as the last wilderness of Europe. Perhaps it is because of the stark contrasts of the countryside; from the grass-green hills of Dumfries and Galloway, to the glassy lochs of Rannoch Moor, to the mysterious glens of Torridon where massive mountains plunge into the sea. All this spectacular geography has been formed by rain, ice, wind and waves over millions of years. Scotlandís coastline is some 6200 miles long, its cliffs, huge rock stacks and long, white sandy beaches defy the winds that torment them.
And then there is the search for that incredible light - and this is at the heart of this portfolio. It is constantly changing, and each season brings a distinctive feel. In my view, the best time is autumn, when the colours are matched by the translucent light found on the coast; bracken turns from green to gold, the rocks take on a silvery grey hue, and the sea transforms through lustrous shades of blue. With the photographs in this portfolio, I have set out to reflect, in all their glory, the sublime views found in the islands, glens, mountains and coast of Scotland.
