Caption List:

Photo 1. Boxer dog on a Scottish Mountain. Vinnie the Boxer looking down from 'Goat Fell' on the Isle of Arran, just off the West coast of Scotland. Goat fell is the highest mountain on Arran at 874 metres (2,866ft) We were about 200ft from the top but deep snow prevented getting all the way up.

Photo 2. Tree silhouette reflected in water. Silhouette of tree without leaves reflected across water. Is this a real scene or is it a comp ?

Photo 3. Autumnal Lime leaf. Autumnal Lime leaf shot in studio. We never really stop to look at the beauty around us. Leaves in Autumn can look absolutely fabulous. I shot a whole series of these and they look great. More to follow.

Photo 4. Submarine viewed through a periscope. Its not often you get to see a sub through a periscope.

Photo 5. Ailsa Craig, Scotland. Sunset over Ailsa Craig, Scotland. An iconic island lying in the outer Firth of Clyde, 10 miles off the shore. Home to the world's best known Curling Stone Quarry. You can't fail to get a good image when the conditions are right.

Photo 6. Ear dropper with yellow liquid and droplet. A simple but very effective image shot in the studio. Quite difficult to light in order to get the right effect.

Photo 7. English Oak Acorn. English Oak Acorn in studio on a black backdrop. The ikonic acorn just begged to be photographed. The detail is amazing and could easily go unnoticed.

Photo 8. Sunrise in dunes with Boxer Dog. Sunrise in sand dunes with Bud the Boxer Dog Photographed in Formby Mesreyside UK at around 5am. You've got to get up early to get the image.

Photo 9. Brown garden snail. Brown garden snail in studio on reflective glass. Look at the beauty in this little fella. Action photography never got more challenging

Photo 10. Special Forces on desert patrol in Land Rovers. Shot on location in Oman in the Middle East we had 16 or so of these Land Rovers to play around with all armed to the teeth. 40 degree temperatures added to the challenge but very rewarding

Photo 11. Bubbles on water. Its not really water its screen wash, hence the deep blue colour. Blowing through a straw created the bubbles and being soapy they stayed around for a while.

Photo 12. Ferrai f430. Red Ferrai f430 on race track. Shot in Monza, Italy on a non race day, we had the vehicle for a few hours to play around with and get the right shots.
