While shooting in the far north recently I took some time out to visit the ruin of Bainakeil church.
It’s such a mystical and spiritual place in it’s exposed position in what seems the edge of the world. The current building here dates from the 16th Century, but the church was actually founded in 722 ! by the the Celtic Saint Maeirubha.
I felt it lended itself to Black and White. Which helps , hopefully, capture some of the simple power and spirituality of the place. The five completed images can be viewed on my Bechance gallery here:-
The summer issue of the very cool ROOMS is now on available at stockists worldwide and online and I am very happy to have two nice spreads shown here. The theme of this issue is sound. Thank you to Ana and team for the invitation to be a part.
Thanks also to Patrick at ‘SEAMLESS’ for this months spotlight feature, again great to be asked for my thoughts on work and the opportunity to share some of it.
Just back from a 5 day trip to the Northern Highlands , a place I love , to work.
Although the south of the country was basking in a ( barmy by UK standards ) 17 deg I was wind swept and lashed up there which made work, or I should say a abundance of work difficult, but, wonderful and invigorating none the less.
Here are two Images I managed to make and I like, A stag called Hardy and a salmon Fish farmer named Hugh.
Thanks to Hugh ( and Hardy ) and to the Ceilidha Place, Ullapool ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the great hospitality as usual !
( FYI , I decided to leave the rain spots on the filters deliberately ! )
