Day two of the Scotland Road trip took in Glencoe and the surrounding area including Rannoch Moor, Buachaille Etive Mòr, Glen Etive where everywhere you looked you saw cliche images, or are they cliche?!..

The Kelpies No.106

These horsehead structures have been on my list of things to shoot since they were constructed, and on the way up to Glencoe the other week we looked in and ended up shooting them for a couple of hours.

This is one shot I've ended up doing quite extensive and intricate processing on!

During my recent Scotland trip we visited the stunning Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye, a stunning location and a place that produced some of my best landscape photography work.

An entertaining night lastnight as our skies lit up after midnight with loads of lightning strikes! (We don't many big lightning storms at all here, so I tried to make the most of it!)
In the early hours of 2nd July 2015, Northumberland was hit by an amazing thunder and lightning storm unlike anything I've seen in 15 years. Here are the results and how I photographed the lighting strikes.

After much curiosity about how multiple exposure blending handled in the Canon 5D mk3, I finally had 5 minutes with one to find out!

Introduction
Northumbrian born and bred. Photography and Design is how I make my pennies these days. Always hopeful of a large lottery win though!

When I joined Google+ I didn't put my Photography front and centre in my business, but after participating in the community here my photography has improved massively and has given me the confidence to push it further, recently opening an online store photos.andrewsgray.com

I continue to develop my style snapping the wild landscapes around me here in Northumberland, recently I have ventured into the realms of Long Exposure photography and Macro Photography.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I am a regular panellist on Midweek Photo Talk, a recorded hangout that is usually recorded at 8pm CET on Wednesdays. Drop me a line if your are interested in taking part. We are always looking for new people to join our discussions and features.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I was there in the original Hangout where Virtual Photo Walks started to be dreamt up, tagging along as John Butterill wandered around his neighbourhood  looking for wildlife to Photograph. Amazing to watch then, and just mind blowing to see the corners of the earth we've been since! Perth, Rome, Singapore, the mountains of Utah, even the Google Campus! etc etc.

I also submitted an image for the Google+ inspired Plus One Collection charity book raising money for the charity Kiva. This image features in the eBook version.
