Bo'ness Hill Climb Revival 2014

The Bo 'ness Hill climb was revived 7 years ago by a group of car enthusiasts on the existing track that had been used for the last 80 years. The Revival as it is know now has grown into a great family day, with two days of racing from cars ranging from pre 1st world war to 1973.

Once again I was lucky enough to get a photography pass for this event - here are a some of my favourite shots from the day.

Outdoor Photography - Reader Gallery

Featured photographer in the April issue of the Oudoor Photography magazine. 
The images featured were the Old Pier at North Berwick and Sunrise at Loch Ard 

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."
