After stopping in Glasgow for a couple of days on our January break, we decided to head up to the highlands for a night and climb the Buachaille Etive Mòr with a few friends in the morning.
An exciting couple of days spent with Santiago Lastra, Craig Grozier and expert forager Mark Williams. We spent the friday foraging for wild mushrooms in the Galloway Forest before an early morning hunt near Perth for a dear on Saturday. Sunday was spent at the Edinburgh Food Studio cooling with the ingredients that had been foraged over the last couple of days.
“The Encontro Street Band Festival a spectacular weekend-long celebration of street band music, the Encontro Festival brings a plethora of UK and international bands to the streets of Glasgow, staging captivating outdoor performances in and around the Merchant City.

Whilst shooting some footage for a music video I took a few snaps of Rachel (https://www.instagram.com/boringolrachel/) amongst some flowers by the River Kelvin in Glasgow.
After a wedding in Fife we met in Perth and headed for the Hills.. The amazing summer weather didnt quite hold up!
After walking from Inverie over to Inverguseran I got a lift back with Ian and Will. The stars were so good we decided to turn round half way and head back to the farm house to grab a tripod! I took this shot looking East towards Sgurr Coire Choinnichean and Ladhar Beinn. The shot is a single 30 second exposure taken with a 15mm fish eye. The Land Rover lights were switched on for about 5 seconds and flood light 2 seconds.
We pulled over at the King’s Head Hotel on Rannoch Moor and met a rather friendly (and hungry) deer!
