An adder on the Treshnish Peninsula. I’d been hoping to see adders on Mull but this individual took me by surprise as I came across it quite suddenly on a path fairly late one evening. It moved off into some heather but I later found it curled up behind a boulder a few metres away.
Getting a low shooting position can be difficult sometimes with reptiles but this adder was quite obliging.
Herons in the rain. I don’t know anywhere where you see as many herons as you do on Mull. I shot this image from the car window on the road down Loch Spelve.
The aurora borealis taken from outside our tent in Craignure. This is one of 3 displays of the aurora I’ve seen in Scotland in the last month.
A still and murky morning at Pennyghael.
A heron fishing at dusk. There was very little light left when I took this and a 10 second exposure gave the sense of motion I was looking for.
Mull has a large number of ruined boats lying about its shores. I’d seen this boat earlier in the day in flat light but returned later to catch the evening light.

‘Watchmen’ – surrounding a house on the Treshnish Peninsula.
Calgary Bay. I used a 50mm prime lens with a narrow depth of field to get something a little different from the usual wide-angle images you see of this location.
