The magazine said: "Some of the hardest things to achieve in landscape photography are balance in the composition, simplicity of scene choice and dynamic edge. David has absolutely nailed all these aspects in both of his images, giving us long-lasting pleasure when viewing them."
The 2014 season at the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway is now under way and this year's leaflet contains a number of my photos including the main image on the front cover.
Runner up - Published in the March 2014 Edition of Outdoor Photography
This unusually shaped breakwater juts out from the harbour wall at St Monan’s in Fife. To get to this viewpoint involves climbing up a 6 ft ladder to get on top of the harbour wall, which is just wide enough to fit a tripod on, with a sheer drop into the water on the other side - a bit precarious on a frosty and windy morning to say the least.
This abstract image of the sea, taken from the West Sands at St Andrews, was awarded third prize and a £25 voucher in the WEX monthly photography competition in which the theme was 'The Sea'. The image was created by panning the camera around on a tripod whilst using a slow shutter speed to create the blurred effect in camera.
This image, taken at Cramond, was shortlisted in the 'People in the landscape' competition and published in the November 2013 Issue of Outdoor Photography. I originally went with the intention of shooting this as a long exposure monochrome image and was initially a little dissapointed when I saw two people 'in my way' so to speak. However, I set up anyway hoping they might retreat to the nearby pub at some point for a refill but when I saw some of my 'test' shots I quite liked the ghostly figure that were created during the ninety second exposure.
One of my pictures from St Monan's in Fife reached was shortlisted for the 2012 Scottish Nature Photography Awards in the Sea & Coast category and has just been published in the awards yearbook.
