We have had a busy year at work and our recent house move has meant that we have been less active in the photography side of things, however we have still managed to look at the work of others and continue to be inspired by both their blog and picture sites.
There are two in particular deserving a mention.
The first is Wild About Scotland , which is an inspirational guide to getting around Scotland in a camper van plus climbing hills and taking excellent photographs along the way. It combines excellent ideas for seeking out Scotland’s wilderness with a series about the joys of owning and using a camper van ,which is keeping the dream alive during stressful days in the office.
The second is LensScaper, which combines photography and tails from frequent expeditions to the Alps. The quality of the writing means I read every post from this man.
This year we had just the two photography trips to the west coast of Scotland. However, we have had some success with stock photo sets and Getty are selling some of our work – Mhair’s road home shot being a particular success. We also had some success with a series of sales from Ardnamurchan and Harris. Although no one could live on it we can start putting it towards an equipment budget.
We returned to the Western Isles as we have done each year but this year spent the majority of time on the Isle of Lewis. We have plans already to return. We have also booked a trip to Tiree in the spring so our tour of the Islands grows.
Is too early for resolutions but we are looking forward to a good new year. There are some trips already planned and exciting projects. Our flickr site has passed 300,000 views ( see pics on the left ) and we are planning to do more picture making and online publishing.
So merry christmas everyone, we are looking forward to a good new year. Enjoy getting out-of-doors to wild places then letting us know where’s scenic.
