It was a bit of a rush to enter last month's SWPP image competition, as I'd been away on holiday and also busy preparing for the first of a series of 3 webcasts (more on that later) for the Tiffen Company. Nonetheless, I managed to enter a few images with just a few minutes to spare before the deadline.
I'm delighted to receive a couple of "Highly Commended" as a result, in the landscape and monochrome sections.
I call this one "Planet Highland" because to me it has a feel almost of first landing on a new planet - in a new, unexplored territory. It is, of course, taken in the West Highlands of Scotland, one of my favourite camera hunting grounds.
I call this one "The Day of Beckoning" - just my warped sense of humour. (Actually, when I think of the phrase "day of reckoning" I can't help but remember and chuckle at the Finnish Heavy Metal Eurovision song entry in 2006 that included the line "this is the day of rockoning" - anyway, I digress).
This was taken at a local studio with a lovely model, Azure Desire, who is starting her modelling career - and I wish her much success.
'Til next time,
